End the Shootings


Another mass shooting, this time in California. I have said it before and will say it again: It is time for gun control. Nobody, no citizen should have an assault weapon; time to ban all assault weapons in this country. Let us stand up to the NRA. They have blood on their hands. Background checks for everyone who wants to buy a gun. I have had many background checks myself for working in a bank, for working with childen, and being a volunteer. Background checks for buying a gun is the least we can do.

Wake up, Congress, Senate, and our President. Time to change the gun laws in this country.
