#Never Again…

“I am going to be relentless.”

Words declared by Fred Guttenberg, the father of Jaime Guttenberg, who was shot in the back on Valentine’s Day, a 14 year-old victim of the Florida High School massacre.

He has vowed to make the fight against gun violence his life’s cause.

We all should join the movement.

We need to support mental health awareness.

I have sobbed my way through the past week.

I have held my daughter close.

Thankfully, many of us have not personally lost a child, but collectively our country has loss a lot.

It is just so obvious that gun laws have to change.

Someone should ask the president and all the politicians who are opposed to tighter gun laws and background checks, to close their eyes and visualize their children running for their lives down the corridors of their schools, and, ultimately, losing the battle.

Would trump feel the same way if his adored Ivanka was violently taken down by a mad man toting an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle?

The NRA is 5 million strong.

We can defeat them.

In 2016, voter registration soared to new heights as 200 million people were registered to vote for the first time in U.S. history.

If women continue to register, along with African-Americans, Hispanic and millennials, our like minded voices will be heard.

I am sick to death about hearing that the 2nd Amendment must be protected.

In fact, we need protection from the 2nd Amendment.

Times and circumstances change and in the 21st century this amendment must be revised since we no longer have to fear militia coming into our homes which is the essence of the 2nd Amendment written in the Bill of Rights on December 15, 1791.

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

The Second Amendment was created so that the states could form militias or armies to destroy insurrections or slave rebellions because the federal government had no standing military for a long time. The Founding Fathers were frightened by a standing army, because they feared coups. Without a standing army, the only protection the people and the government had were militias.

The U.S. is not involved in a homeland war.

We do not need automatic weapons on the streets of America or in the classroom which is the NRA’s brilliant idea and the concept that trump is endlessly tweeting about.

When I reflect back on my posse of teachers and my daughter’s, I cannot imagine even one of them armed.

Do your homework, people.

This idea earns an F.

Get back to the books and come up with a better way to protect our youth.

One obvious, fairly easy power play, is to vote out non-supporters of gun laws, and those that oppose raising age limits for gun purchases along with background checks.

As the brave, smart, motivated teenagers are espousing, “Vote Them Out!!”

I have hope.

I was foolish to believe that when elementary school children were massacred at Sandy Hook that things would change immediately!

This time feels different.

I implore you to contact your elected representatives about stricter background checks for gun buyers and more stringent gun regulations.

Donate $9 to Everytown For Gun Safety Action Fund. I just did.

Consider joining the nationwide protest, March for Our Lives, scheduled for March 24th, in Washington, D.C.

BTW, have you ever watched the propaganda dramatized on NRA TV?
