    The politicians are right to be scared of them.  Maybe there's no justification for paralysis, but lobbying money and power is effective.  So, if someone wants to remain in office, if they have ideals they want to enact and make real change in the world, they have to make political choices sometimes.  They are empowered to go against that lobbying by us.  We need to scream outrage against that power, loudly enough to convince our representatives that organizations like the NRA aren't as effective as they seem when it comes time to vote.  

    In the coming days we need to scream like hell to any of our neighbors, friends, and relatives that will listen that the policies of the NRA are the root cause behind the frequency and the death toll of these types of events and they are not looking out for the rights of citizens but for the profits of their benefactors and sponsors.
