Three mass shootings in the U.S. over the last week; thirty five people are dead, all from a semi-automatic weapon.
Earlier today I contacted the offices of my state’s two U.S. senators and congressional representative. I could only get through on the phone to one, so I had to send an email to the others. I kept my message short and simple: we need to enact effective gun control legislation. I also mentioned thatI don’t feel this is merely a problem with mental illness.
Please do the same. Please call your elected officials, both state and federal. Voices need to be heard.
We cannot allow this to be our new normal.
