Stand united for tougher gun laws

Print Article

Throughout the years there have been over 200 school shootings. Enough is enough. Time for the American people to get hold of your Congress to make tougher gun laws.

There is no reason a person needs to have over 19 guns in their name. There is an age limit to drink or buy cigarettes. There should be a red flag if a person has more than two guns under their name. And for teachers to have a weapon, really? A teacher was arrested for firing a gun in his classroom.

Prayers for the families who lost a loved one in the Florida school. Sad that there were officers there and they didnít do a thing. We vote people into office for the people. Itís time to stand united.

I canít believe the Florida shooter wants the death penalty off. Did he ask those 17 people who lost their lives if they wanted to die? Where did the law fail these families? Who should be responsible, those who knew or had an idea?

Our children are the future. Stand united and we can make a difference.
