If I ever find myself the victim of gun violence ...


If I ever find myself the victim of gun violence I beg you to start politicising the 'incident' immediately.

Don't waste time asking whether the person holding the gun was mad or bad. That is a question for the criminal justice system, not the media or the general public.

Devote your energy to fighting the evil that is the NRA.

Let your elected representatives know that you will support them when they support sane gun laws. Counter the NRA's pro-gun rating of politicians with a pro-gun reform rating. 

Do not be fooled by those who argue that reform is impossible, that the constitution or the culture of this country is so flawed that the right to own a killing machine is more important than the right of the general public to go about their day with a reasonable expectation that they will not be shot.

Do not let the murder of 12 people, the injury of 71 people, and the devastating impact on their families and community, be in vain.

This massacre of innocent people doing something so ordinary was made possible by insane gun laws. The criminal justice system will deal with the person who fired AK-47s (note the plural) into a crowded cinema screening of Batman, who bought those guns and ammunition without breaking the law.

It is up to the rest of us to use our voices, our dollars and our votes, to support candidates for political office who are not supported by the NRA.

Great post Michelle. I don't understand why gun control is not one of the highest priority issues in America. Look what happened in Australia after Port Arthur - semi-automatic weapons were banned.

I don't get the obsession with being able to have freedom to have guns.

and for the love of all that is good and kind … DO NOT respond by going out and buying more guns. that just makes me so … defeated.

great post … let's hope enough people are listening THIS TIME, before the NEXT TIME. xt

Perhaps this is sacrilege, but maybe it is time to repeal the second amendment?

It will never happen though - no one would ever touch the Bill of Rights.

I totally agree on this article!
But I also think that people make whatever they want of whatever they got. I agree the gun is for nothing good but what about other weapons? that weren't supposed to be one at the beginning...
