This week on Bill Maher's 'Real Time' show, he pointed out that this time just may be different. He said for the first time, students are speaking out about their safety in school and many are saying if politicians continue to support NRA and refuse to take action about gun control, they're getting close to voting age and are already wanting to start a grass roots campaign to vote these greedy politicians out of office and replace them with politicians who will
take action about gun control.
I hope they succeed.
How would you like to be a student in a USA school and you can no longer be certain that when you go in the morning, you'll still be alive at the end of the school day.
Many schools are actually having lockdown drills and having students practice how to survive if a shooter comes to their school. What a way to have to live. When I was a kid in school, we had crawl under your desk drills to try to survive atom bomb attacks. Fortunately, that never happened. But shooters murdering kids in school? That's become so routine that seeing these incidents happen hardly comes as a shock or surprise anymore.
I doubt that this incident will be the last time. The only questions are when will the next one be, where, and how many will be killed, wounded, and traumatized."A well regulated militia . . ."
Well, how about start regulating?
I love the cliché, "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." I wonder how many 'people could kill people' if these nut cases couldn't get their hands on guns in the first place.
