December 14, 2018, was the 6th anniversary of the horrific and devastating Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Twenty (20) children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult staff members. On January 16, 2013, former President of the United States, Barack Obama gave one of the most compassionate speeches that I have ever heard on
The former President Obama spoke on the behalf of the small innocent children, their protective teachers, and the brave administrators that died at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The President spoke on the behalf of the grieving parents that lost their children, and members of Sandy Hook community that have to live with this tragedy every day. He spoke on the behalf of the thousands of Americans that die each year from senseless gun violence on school campuses, office buildings, in their homes, in the streets, and yes, even in our places of worship. He spoke of the need for safety measures such as bulletproof room partitions (see more here) and also called on all Americans to work collectively to protect our children and improve public safety for all Americans.
As the President Obama said, even when we enact new gun laws and needed gun regulations, we won’t stop every senseless act of violence. More importantly, those congressmen/women that do absolutely nothing to help President Obama and his Administration address our murderous national epidemic and/or actively fight against reasonable gun legislation on the behalf of the National Rifle Association (NRA), and gun manufacturers, will be called out. We will not allow our representatives in Congress to sit on their hands and wait on the NRA to give them their marching orders with a canned speech in tow. Note 1: The NRA is designated as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization that is using the people’s tax monies to create scandalous videos supporting no gun control regulations. Note 2: During the 2018 USA elections, the NRA Spent $30 Million to Elect Trump. U.S. Investigators have supporting evidence that all or most of the $30 million that the NRA spent on Trump was linked Russian!
FACTS: Polls show that 97 percent of Americans support background checks for all gun buyers. on firearms buyers at gun shows; sixty-nine percent of NRA members expressed support for comprehensive background checks. 84 percent of Democrats favor a firearms ownership database while only 45 percent of Republicans do.
Many American politicians, especially have allowed the National Rifle Association (NRA), and gun manufacturers to hold the entire nation hostage to a sick unwarranted gun culture. These two entities have more power in our “Nation Capitol” than the 435 members in the House of Representatives and 100 members in the Senate combined. This is completely outrages; therefore, we must demand that members of Congress pass comprehensive legislation to ban assault weapons, and high-capacity magazines.
If members of congress don’t support the American people in enacting reasonable gun laws that will enhance the overall safety of this nation, the people must mobilize a massive march on Congress and vote them out. If you can’t afford to physically join the march on Congress you can certainly electronically march on congress. These congressmen/women that we sent to Washington must know that we will not tolerate their small-mindedness, lack of courage, and refusal to act in the best interest of the American people. We must let them know that we will not wait for another brazen act of violence against innocent men, women, and/or children. We will not wait until they can line their campaign war chest with even larger amounts of blood money from Gun Interest.
If Congressman/women, don’t act responsibly now to enact solutions to our tremendously horrific gun problem, we will name names and call them out. Congress will have to either do its job or quit and get out of our way. We will not continue to pay them their considerable salaries with generous benefits for them to continue to play Deft Dumb and Blind to our nation’s most pressing problems. People get ready in the summer of 2019 to hold a massive march on Congress to let them know that they are elected to do the people’s business. We need to know if they are in Congress strictly for the money or are they there to serve the people who elected them to their offices.
