“In Our Sights”

The Senate voted on gun control and ‘we’ lost!

When the Senate reconvened after another ‘vacation’ one of the most important (pieces) of business was gun control — especially the Manchin-Toomey expansion of background checks which had received so much press.

As the Senators cast their votes it became obvious that the bill was not going to pass. Forty-six Senators voted against it despite polls showing that as many as 90% of us wanted to at least expand background checks.

Dispassionate legislators,’ who couldn’t see the value in saving citizens lives, and more specifically the lives of our children, voted against it, despite 4,000 gun related murders since the violence in Newtown.

How many more slaughtered will it take?

“Terror In Two States”

Everyone’s aware of the bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Two blasts in Boston, acts of terrorism perpetrated by two brothers — Chechen immigrants who had become radicalized — killed three people and injured over 250 more.

A manhunt ensued. Law enforcement came out in force to find whoever intended to harm those watching this historic event. Unlimited resources were mobilized and they quickly identified the two brothers as the suspects.

A few days later the shit hit the fan in Texas!

“A Message From Newtown”

This is not over!

Last week, the Senate failed to pass the Manchin-Toomey Universal Background Check Amendment even though 90% of Americans favored its passage.

Forty-six Senators prevented the passage of a gun control legislation, albeit weak, aimed at reducing the carnage this country is experiencing each and every day! More than thirty people die in America everyday, more than 30,000 each year — the victims of gun related deaths.

The families traumatized by the horrendous massacre of 20 six year olds, and six teachers and administrators responsible for protecting these precious human beings, lobbied Senators pleading that they vote for this one piece of legislation that could spare other parents the anguish they’re experiencing.

Were these grieving parents asking too much?

“Empty Chamber”

Mayhem, chaos, pandemonium, repeating over and over!

Thirty rounds expelled in rapid succession — deafening above the screams, terrifying — then silence, an empty chamber, a brief respite from the maelstrom that leaves some of the 20 beautiful six year olds lying in their Sandy Hook Elementary School classroom crushed and lifeless.

Deafening silence like that from the NRA whores in Congress; those that buy into the lies of the National Rifle Association, selling their souls for a few dollars for their reelection; silence during which this deranged gunman loads another 30 rounds — another deadly high-capacity clip — and repeats the insanity. Five times!

Who are these political whores?

“Gun Powder and Testosterone”

This article is posted on The Huffington Post and can be read at Huff Post by clicking on the link.

**************************

Who loves the smell of gun powder in the morning?

We’ve heard the cliché that gasoline and alcohol don’t mix. The same should be said of gun powder and testosterone.

Both mixtures have deadly implications and deserve scrutiny wherever and whenever these elements are combined.

Though W.C. Fields once joked, “They say gasoline and alcohol don’t mix…actually, they do, they just don’t taste good,” the combination of gun powder and testosterone is no joking matter. Neither is the current combination of powerful weaponry and over stimulated and paranoid males.

So is the answer to take away all the guns?

“An Assault On Our Welfare”

It is far past the time to stop the gun insanity!

The NRA’s misinterpretation of the 2nd Amendment is killing innocent Americans and Congress must stop it.

A grave mistake was made in 2004 when Congress let the Assault Weapons Ban expire. It’s time they correct their legislative dereliction, Now!

We need common sense in our gun laws and ‘we the peopleowe it to the children of Sandy Hook to demand swift and immediate action from Congress.

If not now, then when?

“I Didn’t Know Gabby, But I’d Like To!”

Gabby Giffords is strong, she’s a fighter and someone I’d like to know!

On Saturday afternoon, January 8th, in Tucson, Arizona Congresswoman Giffords’s life was suddenly interrupted; tragically changed in a heartbeat by a cacophony of gunfire.

For the next few days her husband Mark and the entire country waited with bated breath while she went through surgical procedures to save her life.

It didn’t matter, at the time, what party she was from—what mattered was her life, the medical procedures, and her hopeful recovery.

As more information was released about the tragedy, hearts grew heavier and discourse more acetic.

In the confusion 13 people would be injured, six would lose their lives, and Gabby’s hung in the balance.
