Amer­i­cans must speak up

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Las Ve­gas shoot­ings

The United States is a na­tion that has a proud his­tory of help­ing other na­tions in need around the world. Amer­ica was called the Arse­nal of Democ­racy by FDR and played a most sig­nif­i­cant part in the Al­lied vic­tory in the Sec­ond World War. Amer­i­cans have placed men on the moon, sent probes to the far reaches of our galaxy and have helped con­quer dis­ease on our planet. Yet, Amer­i­cans still have not been able to con­trol the rel­a­tive ease to the ac­cess of firearms which has lead to an­other hor­rific loss of life. It is fi­nally time that all Amer­i­cans speak up and fi­nally say, enough is enough! It is time for those who legally own firearms to work with their govern­ment lead­ers and the NRA to de­velop laws that limit or stop the rel­a­tive ease to own th­ese weapons of mass mur­der. If the Found­ing Fa­thers who wrote the Amer­i­can Con­sti­tu­tion were around to­day, they would be in tears and scream for im­me­di­ate ac­tion af­ter see­ing what has oc­curred in the na­tion they proudly cre­ated.
