    one get?

    Why are we pushing gun control again?

      Why? Because even VP Biden said it will not stop the next massacre.

      But you know what will?  

      Fully funded health care, not for-profit health insurance.

      Living Wage Jobs.

      Ending the Racist Drug War.

      Ending unfunded resource wars.

      If you were to magically whisk away all the firearms in this Nation, you'd have 133,000 dying of poverty every year.  You'd have over 16,000 people still committing suicide.  You'd have another 600,000 trying to.
      You'd have people like me, transgendered women still being beaten and killed in increasingly violent manners, along with the rest of us in the LGBT community.

      You's still have the hatred & despair bred by years of Republicanism that defunded our social safety nets and stole everything not nailed down.

      These problems will NEVER be addressed as long as you keep blaming the gun.  THAT'S what breaks my heart today!

      Call me heartless if you must, attack me personally like you did, but the facts will remain, won't they?!

      -7.62; -5.95 The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.~Tesla
