I Reject That Occasional Mass Murder Is The Cost Of America

nevadaguns“We seem to have accepted that occasional mass murder is the cost of America,” an article in Mother Jones states.
I reject this. I refuse to let the National Rifle Association of America continue to get rich watching us die: at the movies, in school, at a country concert. They know commonsense gun laws wouldn’t diminish hunting, or guns for self-defense, or guns held by law-abiding citizens. That’s never what commonsense gun laws have been about: they’ve been about getting rid of automatic weapons, simple background checks and denying guns to people who have mental illness or are on a “do-not-fly” list. What is so hard about that? How can we continue to let people die like this? How is this worth it?
“The NRA is opposed to virtually every form of gun regulation, including restrictions on owning assault weapons, retention of databases of gun purchases, background checks on purchasers at gun shows and changes in the registration of firearms,” according to Opensecrets.org.Β Since 1998, the National Rifle Association has donated $3,781,803 to current members of Congress.

“The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get,” Hillary Clinton tweeted.

With our laws, with our support of the NRA, we are saying this is OK. We are letting this happen. If you are a gun owner, stand up to the NRA. Stand up for other people’s lives.

50 lives and counting gone in a second. What is worth that?
