Vote for those who will confront NRA
Another mass murder with an assault rifle Saturday morning. Eleven innocent people killed by a deranged gunman. How many more of these tragic crimes have to be committed before we enact a change.
Too many politicians are accepting enormous sums for their campaigns from the NRA, ensuring that anyone can purchase one of these killing machines. According to the Center of Responsive Politics, $5.9 million went to Republican candidates in the 2016 election cycle. Jeff Denham is endorsed by the NRA and got $12,000; he will not stand up to the NRA.
When I was teaching in the public schools we had fire drills. Now school have active-shooter drills. We do not value the lives of our children as we should. How would it affect you if one or more of your children died at the hands of a mentally ill individual with an assault rifle? Start voting for people who will enact common-sense gun laws.
