Time to take real action

-A +A

“This is not the time to talk about this.” “Our hearts are with you.” “My prayers are with the victims.” Blah, blah, blah.

So, we have another shooting at a school. School used to be a place where parents thought their children would be educated and be safe. No more.

When are we going to have a real discussion on what is happening here? When are we going to hold our representatives accountable for their lack of leadership in preventing gun violence? When are we going to say, “Enough!”

Personally, I am just sick that mass shootings seem to be becoming the norm in our country. I truly thought when the carnage at Sandy Hook happened, something would be done. But nothing did. Do you realize this is the eighth school shooting just this year?

Today, our president said, “No child, no teacher should ever be in danger in an American school. No parent should ever have to fear for their sons and daughters when they kiss them goodbye in the morning.” I agree.

If you feel as I do and want to have a serious conversation regarding gun violence, please join me in attending the meeting of the Auburn Area Democratic Club on Thursday, March 8 at the General Gomez Art & Events Center, 808 Lincoln Way in Auburn. Amanda Wilcox, chair for the CA Brady Campaign will be the speaker. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
