Two mass shootings in less than 24 hours.
At least 29 people dead.
At least 50 people injured.
Is this Domestic Terrorism?
Do we have a white nationalist terrorism problem?
Do we need to transform the mental health system?
Do we need more sensible gun laws? (i.e. Should we ban access to military-style weapons and high-capacity cartridges?).
I say: Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! (and Yes!)
I am sick and tired of innocent people being gunned down as they go about their daily lives – visiting a park, sitting in a movie theater, shopping for school supplies, attending a religious service, enjoying a concert or festival, performing a task at work, sitting in a classroom, etc.
It has been reported that in 216 days of this year, there have been 251 mass shootings that left 520 dead and 2,000 wounded. (Go back and read that again: THERE HAVE BEEN MORE MASS SHOOTINGS THAN DAYS!)
What are we doing to stop the massacres?
We are beyond the point of soul- searching and debate.
Don’t you think it’s time to take action?
