Guns: November 14, 2017

Dear Mr. VP,

Four people died today. A gunman in rural California randomly picked targets. He tried to enter an elementary school, but quick thinking by administrators and teachers who immediately put the school into lockdown saved lives. Imagine how many dead kids we might be talking about right now otherwise.

Here’s your response.

Vegas, Texas, now this. When a Muslim man used a car to kill, we got immediate rhetoric about immigration. But when white men repeatedly use guns to murder our friends and neighbors, we get thoughts and prayers. No actions. Nothing.

History will, I think, judge this harshly.
