What astounds me about the mass shooting in Las Vegas is how little it astounds me. Mass shootings are common place. I believe the blood is on this congress’s hands. All the killings, and still they cannot pass a single tiny bit of legislation to limit gun violence. Anything would help. I don’t know, nor care, exactly what should be done. It seems to me tighter background checks would be a no-brainer. I don’t see a place for semi-automatic weapons. Something has to be done. I know the killings will continue, I know laws won’t stop them. I know our society is gun based, and most gun owners are responsible. I also know laws would go a long way to limit gun violence. Laws will save lives. I don’t understand why responsible gun owners would be against stronger background checks.
Thoughts and prayers don’t stop violence. What god is this that would rather sit in heaven and listen to your prayers? God gave you brains and muscles, I can’t imagine s/he prefers prayer to action.
I tend to write letters instead of calling or emailing congress people. So I’ve sent the congressmen and women who vote against stronger legislation each a postcard. It is your move, congress. The blood is on your hands.
