The above link is to an article about Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly starting an intelligent and balance discussion on Gun Control, balancing the equation that has been out of balance for years because of groups like the NRA. They right:
“In response to a horrific series of shootings that has sown terror in our communities, victimized tens of thousands of Americans, and left one of its own bleeding and near death in a Tucson parking lot, Congress has done something quite extraordinary – nothing at all,”
I have to say this it is about time that someone does something. Politicians seem to be afraid of the NRA and are unwilling to risk anything, especially their jobs, in order to do what it right. Gun violence is on the news almost every day; not always like Tucson and Newtown, but lives lost nonetheless. I applaud Giffords and Kelly who are two whose voice will hopefully be heard, after all they know better than most what it is like to be on the receiving end of gun violence. Additionally they are taking aim raising awareness for changes needed in mental health services in our country.
It is time for things to change!
