Another School Shooting
Another school shooting. The reactions of those in government are hollow and meaningless, given that past tragedies have not motivated them to take preventative action. Congress continues to be held hostage by the NRA and in fact recently enacted the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act to make it easier for people to carry concealed weapons; the Senate will shortly vote on the same bill. States like Minnesota, where applicants undergo screening and training before being given concealed carry permits, would be forced to tolerate the presence of gun-toting, unpermitted, untrained individuals from states with lax gun regulations.
1. CALL your Senators and ask them to oppose the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.
2. Write to the Editor of your local newspaper and call for a nationwide one-day school strike. Parents of school-age children should keep them home for a day to protest the government’s inaction and apathy surrounding gun safety.
