This is how it begins. This voice, and voices of the countless victims and witnesses to these tragedies need to be amplified by us, all of us, to our neighbors..., to our elected officials, to our community leaders. And our elected officials owe them and all of us a response to why, why when the overwhelming percentage of the American public is in favor of responsible gun reform laws, that National leadership is unwilling to even have a floor debate regarding this?
It is time to call everyone out, make them go on record and articulate their position in detail. And its up to us to amplify those responses as well. But that is not enough, we need to use the collective power of our vote, from school committee to President and every ballot in between, to support people who will move this agenda forward, and replace those who won't.
