On Feb. 14, there was another school shooting in 2018, and I’m sick of us choosing inaction as a solution.
I sent my two kids to the bus today with “I love you” and hope after we spent yesterday — again — talking about their contemporaries dying in a school.
But hope is not a plan. I can’t spend today with my children thinking that I chose to do nothing to better their safety.
My children are now statistically more likely to die at the hands of a shooter than they are likely to be abducted and killed by a serial predator. We’re selling our kids’ lives for gun manufacturers’ profit margin, and it’s time it stops.
I know the pressure gun control brings elected officials. But I’m asking Sens. Gillibrand and Schumer: Can we remove legislative barriers to civil action against gun manufacturers? Can we make it illegal for gun manufacturers to lobby? Are there any other solutions that hit the the gun lobby finances?
Please help. Some day it will be my kids, or yours. We owe them a solution for their safety. It’s #TimeToTalk.
