Have we learned anything yet from the school shootings? How many more of these senseless killings do we have to accept before we say "no?" It would be easy to turn this around: all we have to do is stop voting for Republicans! Any and all Republicans. Kick them all out! There are nice Republicans? Yes, that's true. But they support and follow their crooked leaders, who are owned by the NRA. Bought and paid for. (Like Trump's girlfriends.)

We have become a nation that sponsors human sacrifice. Our school kids have become sacrificial lambs for the gun lobby. There have been 290 school shootings since Sandy Hook. And 17 in 2018 alone. We are being defeated as a nation by our inaction and surrender of our ideals. Since 1995, about seven teens or kids are killed every day with guns.

The Constitution is about protecting life and liberty. But liberty shouldn't be allowed to destroy life. That's a perversion. Get rid of the Republicans in Congress, and we can fix the Constitution so that it is clear on our priorities. We can't have loose gun laws and safe children. Have we learned that yet? It's our choice!
