Make A Clean Sweep…

It Ain’t Over Till The Fat Lady Sings.

I think I hear her singing.

I am hoping with all my being that the logjam in Congress has finally been broken and that Washington will move to pass gun control legislation.

This just cannot continue.

Assault weapon bans must be legislated.

Honestly, I do not know how parents send their children off to school or even college these days.

I am so glad that my daughter has graduated and moved on though I worry when we take the subway, go to the mall, attend a concert, sporting event or movie.

These thoughts should not be part of an American’s consciousness.

31 innocent men, women and children died this past week.

The number of mass shootings in the U.S. so far in 2019 has outpaced the number of days.

As of Sunday, which was the 216th day of the year, there have been 251 mass shootings in the U.S.

Reality check…we are facing a serious upsurge in domestic terrorism and the FBI is not allowed to monitor or squelch these movements due to Second Amendment rights.

The Senate needs to reconvene this week and take a stand to Make America Safe…great isn’t even a part of the vernacular anymore.

We are a pathetic, weak, violent, racist society.

I am an overly obsessed Yankee fan this season because I need a positive, distracting outlet from the darkness that has descended upon this country.

The Yankees just swept their arch rival Boston Red Sox, winning all four weekend games.

Let’s get busy and clean house…we need to sweep Washington clean of all the stalling tactics, partisan excuses, gun lobby obstructionists and enact some stringent gun control laws…NOW.

    Wow that statistic, 251 mass shootings in 216 days, is chilling. I’m totally with you. Actually I can’t believe we’re still talking about banning assault weapons?
