I’m so glad people are finally starting to stand up to the gun lobby in the US. They’ve enjoyed their reign of terror long enough and I’m heartened to see some progress, starting with the president. I’m only sorry that it took the horrible deaths of little children to finally breach that wall.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns has taken a leading role in this effort, beginning with a petition to support the meaningful regulation of dangerous weapons. No one needs a semi-automatic rifle to go duck hunting, and the massive bullets from one can tear a person to shreds. No one’s “coming for your guns.” The exact opposite seems to have been true – the guns have been coming for us.

Great video below. If you’re in the US, please consider getting involved in this. I don’t think I could take another Sandy Hook. And, do you know there have been 900 or more gun-related deaths in the month since?
