At this rate, no thanks to Moscow Mitch, nothing is getting done anyway with or without a Government Shutdown. A bill that has bi-partisan support in the house. A bill that has senators wanting to vote on it. Is not being considered because Mitch says so. That bill regarding stricter background checks regarding guns. Over 90% of the American People support this notion this includes the gun owners.
Recently I heard from high schoolers whom whenever they enter a room, including a class room, they immediately look for exits. They run worst case scenarios in their head. No teen no child no parent should have to live in this constant fear of not being able to come home.
Every mass shooting, people did not know that it would be the last time they’ll see their loved one. People did not know it would be their last hug or kiss or the last time you’d hear “I love you” or have that be the last thing they text engraved in your phone.
I feel I was lucky to have gone through school with only Colombine on our minds. Our government did something. Things improved. Now certain laws changed for the worst. Allowing people who should not have guns due to mental illness to pick one up at a gun show or a Walmart just as if you were buying a toy. These are not toys they are killing machines and need to be regulated.
To my Reps I implore you please do whatever you can to bring this bill onto the floor and make it a law. Do this for our future do this to help prevent another mass shooting.
