"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path, without brightening our own."
In numerous recent events in the US, innocent children and adults have been victims of gun crime. Isn't it time that we shine a light on politicians, forcing them to strengthen gun control laws to protect us? It's past time the US Congress stands up to the fear-mongering NRA (National Rifle Association) and addresses what matters: public safety.
One has to wonder about where lawmakers' loyalties lie, when the day before the tragic school shootings in Connecticut, the Michigan legislature passed a bill allowing guns in classrooms. How many more mass murders will devastate families, before politicians find the courage to act??!!
