Back to Civic Engagement: Make Our Voices Heard

Update on August 15, 2012

Yet another tragic shooting occurred this morning in the nation's capital. At 10:45am a gunman walked into the lobby of the Family Research Council - a conservative organization that deals in issues of faith, family and freedom - and opened fire on a security guard. Luckily, the guard only sustained a wound to the arm and was able to wrestle the shooter to the ground and disarm him before police arrived at the scene. Now held in FBI custody, the shooter has yet to be identified and authorities are still investigating his motive and mental state.

As gun violence continues to plague our country, do you think U.S. law does enough to keep these dangerous weapons out of the hands of potential criminals? Keep voicing your opinions on the issue and invite your friends to take the poll, too!
