Listening to 45 speak about the massacre at MY school makes me miss @BarackObama even more.— Sarah Lerner, CJE (@mrs_lerner) February 15, 2018
Nothing of value from 45’s words. An empty speech with no promises made. This is MY school. These are MY friends. These are MY students. When will @realDonaldTrump do something about gun violence? This isn’t just a mental health issue. Ridiculous.— Sarah Lerner, CJE (@mrs_lerner) February 15, 2018
Noticing flags around me flying at half-mast. Given the number of shootings this year, they should have been flown at half-mast an average of twice a week every week since the first week of the year.
We are at war. With the crazies who want to shoot people, and with the NRA and its minions and bought-and-paid for politicians.( No, not the 2nd amendment. Heller applied that to handguns for self-defense. It is far less protective of rifles. The problem is political, not Constitutional.) Just watched "The Godfather" again, with all it's discussion of how many politicians Don Corleone has in his "pocket." Honestly, how is the NRA any different, or any less inimical to the interests of society at large?
