I took a ride to the store to get some things for the house. In my shopping, my mind was on those 59 people injured and 12 killed on Friday in Colorado. In the back of my mind I said to myself ,"This could've be somewhat avoided." I know what your thinking...HOW? By first strengthening our gun laws. Not allowing guns to be so easily accessible . Guns are so easy to get that you can go online and purchase without an issue. Our government needs to stand up and shut down the loop holes the allow people like James Holmes to buy guns and enough ammo to take out a couple of neighborhoods
We as a nation also got to stand up . Stand up to organizations like the NRA (NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION) and let them know that yes we have a right to bare arms but due to the way our society is we have a right to say who should have guns and who should not have guns.
When will we stand up ? When more innocent children die? I'm tired of hearing about the second amendment like its the bible. We need to remind our legislature that they have a duty to defend,honor ,and protect. Our leaders have become derelict ( neglectful of duty or obligation; remiss) to the people of this nations and because of that fact innocent people have died.
WE HAVE THE POWER, WE HAVE THE AUTHORITY , WHEN WILL WE USE IT ? WHEN WILL WE STAND UP?
