America is in the midst of another Gun Massacre Crisis, and the death count is rising, and the US Senate does nothing!
The US Senate has become the burial grounds of any hope to protect Americans from gun violence, and it has twice happened in the last week, in Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado.
But it has also happened in the Sandy Hook Massacre of 2012 in Connecticut; in the Parkland, Florida Massacre in 2018; in the Charleston Church Massacre in South Carolina in 2015; in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Synagogue Massacre in 2018; the Orlando, Florida gay nightclub shooting in 2016; and the list goes on and on and on!
Only America has this level of gun violence, and no ability to pass ANY legislation to regulate sales or prevent combat weapons from being sold, which is only designed to cause mass loss of life by crazed gunmen!
This is exasperating, and somehow, there has to be an epiphany, so that America is not the only nation that allows mass killing of their own citizens!
Seditionist Republicans in the House of Representatives are a threat to civil order, and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of California is a disaster as their leader!
And yet, McCarthy could end up as House Speaker in 2023, if the Republicans were to win control the House of Representatives in the midterm elections of 2022.
McCarthy voted against acceptance of the Electoral College vote on January 6, and has now visited Donald Trump in Mar A Lago; appointed Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia to the House Education Committee, despite her ridicule of disabled people and denial that the Parkland Florida Massacre of 2018 and the Sandy Hook Massacre of 2012 occurred, and also threatened the lives of Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton, and so many more outrageous utterances; and is working behind the scenes to force third ranking House Republican leader Liz Cheney out of leadership!
Those who work for the Congress of the United States are living in fear of bloodshed and violence occurring again, and are terrified at some of the crazy, loony House members, who insist on carrying guns into the Capitol complex, and refuse to go through metal detectors.
Today, we are witnessing a massive March on Washington, “A March For Our Lives”, estimated at 500,000 people, and in 800 locations around America, and even in other nations, by young people and their supporters, demanding gun reform after the tragic Parkland Massacre in south Florida, which led to the deaths of 14 students and three teachers by a mentally ill young man who had assault weapons designed for war as he conducted his massacre in just six minutes.
Over 187,000 students have been in the line of fire from school shootings since the Columbine, Colorado Massacre in April 1999. And an estimated 33,000 victims of gun deaths anywhere in America occur every year.
We have seen great courage and conviction by the young survivors of this massacre, and it gives hope and confidence in the future of America, that we are witnessing the commitment of young people both at that high school and all around America to bringing about essential change. And their parents and families and many others are joining them in this struggle against inertia.
We are shocked at the lack of action by Congress and President Trump, and we have a future generation of leaders being created by the refusal of our government to overcome the power and money of the National Rifle Association and other powerful interest groups that control our government, and ignore the needs and desires of the American people.
The goal has to be to kick out of office as many of the “traitors” to the American people who do not give a whit about what happens to young Americans in their schools and to all Americans in other public places.
A political revolution against the cancer now existing in our government is a revolution that will triumph, as many of the older generation of politicians, in office only for their own personal ends, shall be repudiated in midterm and later elections by massive participation by the future generation reaching 18 in 2018 or soon after.
