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 didn’t do a thing. We vote people into office for the people. It’s time to stand united.

I can’t 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.

Better life for Dreamers

December 13, 2018 at 5:00 am | Columbia Basin Herald Immigration should not be a term that we use. Maybe we could use “Dreamer” instead. Migrants come to the U.S. to find a better job and work the hard jobs that American citizens won’t work. Some peopl...
