Shame on us for not stopping gun sales

The NRA says we cannot stop the sale of guns (similar to the tobacco industry’s claims that the right to smoke meant non-smokers bore the responsibility to avoid the smoke).

Why do we continue to protect the right to assault weapons, huge volumes of bullets and the implements that help one person kill volumes of strangers.

We glorify violence and the innocent pay the price. Kennedy. Reagan, Brady, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Gabby Gifford and nothing has changed.

Shame on us.
