I’m sure by now you’ve read and heard of the shooting in Florida. I’m tired of the ‘it’s too soon to talk about it.’ We have our children being murdered at our schools.
It has become so formulaic:
1) A mass shooting.
2) Politicians say it’s “disrespectful” to raise questions about the ready availability of weapons of war while people are grieving.
3) Times passes.
4) Nothing happens.
And then we do it all over again.#madness#sickening

Another quite smart man who’s more eloquent than I am with his words:
The 2nd Amendment extremists will never be swayed from their hardline position. The only way to enact sane gun regs is at the ballot box. If you feel that way, it's simple: if they take money from the NRA, don't vote for 'em in November.

I’m sick and tired of the ‘lets not talk about’ and wait until the news cycle is over and it just goes away. We have a sickness and it needs to be treated. Doing NOTHING is a slap in the face to all of the parents that have lost children and loved ones in these mass shootings.
I really dig Justin Timberlake’s ‘Say Something’ music video. Quite well done.
Have a good Friday everyone! Get out and enjoy the sun.
