How many more times do we have to say enough is enough? Why do we have to worry about going to school, a concert, a club, or any large event and be afraid that we are going to be apart of another mass casualty. How many more lives do we have to lose before we get common-sense reforms to reduce gun violence in our country? Americans are 25 percent more likely to be murdered with a gun than people in any other developed nation. Last year, The American College of Physicians called mass shootings “a serious public health issue that needs to be addressed by Congress immediately.” Enough is enough. Enough has BEEN enough. #gunsafetynow

A statement issued to USA Today on behalf of Mowry-Housley and her husband confirmed their niece was a victim in the mass shooting that left 12 dead. ———————————————————-
Praying for all the families affected by this senseless act.
#ArtisPolitical | “There’s a radical – and wonderful – new idea here… that all children could and should be inventors of their own theories, critics of other people’s ideas, analyzers of evidence, and makers of their own personal marks on the world. Its an idea with revolutionary implications. If we take it seriously.” — Deborah Meier, Education Activist and Writer.

My brother and I were watching the news and the reporter said “People who support trump are just sick and tired of being called racists! Just because you support him doesn’t mean you’re a racist!” And I immediately thought of this! It’s so true, there’s no such thing as staying neutral anymore as long as that ass @realdonaldtrump is still in office.
The NRA tweeted last week for “self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane” and the tweet goes on to claim that “Half of the articles in the Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control” yet “the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves”
It seems that the NRA consulted NO ONE but themselves in making these inflammatory comments. (Sounds like someone else we know… #potus)
I take issue on so many levels:
1) “ Anti-gun doctors”. Are only pro-gun doctors allowed in the lane? Are they the only ones dealing with and taking care of victims of gun violence.
2) “Self –important” hmmmm. Gun Violence is a PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS in the States. It’s embarrassing actually. EVERYONE needs to get in the damn lane and propose measures to reduce gun violence. Gun-fueled, home grown terrorism is one of the greatest physical and mental threats to our day to day lives, and the reality is even more dismal for our kids’ future.
3) The NRA is essentially attacking the lack of quality research that is available on America’s gun problem. THEN FUND IT. (yeah right) The Dickey Amendment 1996 stifled federal funding of gun research. It wasn’t even “intended” to do this. (Read Ex-Rep Dickey’s regrets now on the passing of this amendment, copy paste link below) . This needs to change at the policy level. And more efforts should also be made at the private and state level to fund this research.
#GET IN THE LANE

Read these. Then read them again. Read this until they finally penetrate your thick skulls. We need gun reform. It's not longer an opinion. Its a fact. I hope all of you fucks who disagree realize that this can happen to your children. This can happen to your friends. This can happen to your girlfriends, sisters, brothers, mothers. This can happen to anyone. If nothing is done, its going to happen a lot more often. I'm not arguing with any of you in the comments. I'm done arguing about the safety of students and children and inoccent people. How many dead people will it take for change. °
