More than 300,000 children directly affected by gun violence since Sandy Hook – UNACCEPTABLE !!
Cigarettes kill people. Guns kill people.
The U.S. has done a pretty good job of de-sexifying cigarette smoking. Movie stars mostly no longer smoke on screen, PSAs warn of the dangers of smoking, each package comes with a warning label from the Surgeon General. Why can’t we de-sexify gun ownership the same way ? Get guns out of the hands of movie stars, limit playing time for shoot-em-up video games to less than 1 hr per week, introduce warning labels on shoot-em-up video games and guns, and crank up the PSAs on gun violence. Not to mention, banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines and setting up universal background checks, and red flag laws.
The U.S. has the most guns, the most guns per capita, and the most gun-related violence of any “developed” country in the world. Check out these comparisons from the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations.
We can take back our country from the paranoid minority. Gun ownership is not the problem.
CONTROLLING gun ownership is.
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, called for repeal of the 2nd amendment. After Columbine, Sandy Hook, Buffalo, Uvalde and all the intervening tragedies, it seems apparent that our elected representatives don’t grasp the idea that for most of us, the pursuit of happiness does not involve the slaughter of our children, friends or relatives by gun-wielding wackos. It is time to make some changes. If you support a person’s right to life, you should also support repeal of the 2nd amendment. Take guns off our streets.
We need to return the privilege of governing to those people who are willing to govern, not play to the peanut gallery. Ted Cruz may not be able to cook his bacon on the barrel of his AR 15 anymore. What a shame !
