Enough is Enough. Take to the Streets. And the Voting Booths.

I don’t care if you love guns. I don’t care if you love the Second Amendment. You love children more.

If I am correct about that, then we –all of us–have to demand an end to the recurring nightmare of children and their teachers being slaughtered in school. That cannot be a partisan sentiment.

I’m not dictating what the solution is. I’m saying, we must demand that our government get to the table and FIGURE IT THE HELL OUT.

Liberal, conservative, whatever. It’s not rocket science. Have a goddamn hearing. Bring the best practices to the table. Consider everything. And, in the words of a 17-year-old student from Parkland, Florida, “Go to hell” if you can’t get it done. You have blood on your hands.

As for my liberal representatives in Congress, it’s not enough to tell me about the legislation you’ve co-sponsored that has failed. You are obliged to devise a plan to make it happen. I know it’s hard. I’m here to help you. I will take to the streets. Lead.

As for conservatives, well this sign expresses a widely held sentiment, one you are invited to disprove:

And every morning, I kiss my children goodbye and cross my goddamn fingers that their school won’t be the one on the national news that night.

    • Hi Sheila, I’m familiar with Women Against Gun Violence. Thank you for your activism on this issue. I’m curious how the different gun reform groups work together to maximize their impact? Do you think it would be better for there to be one HUGE advocacy group, to counter the NRA, rather than an assortment of smaller groups? Do they focus on different elements of gun safety?
