WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?

WHAT DO WE SEE WHEN WE LOOK AT THIS?

We are taught to see a symbol that represents everything we believe in as Americans. No one said anything about gun lobbys and the NRA making policy through money. To us this symbol represents apathy on the part of our lawmakers that has led to thousands of dead children killed through gun violence. It represents the assault riffles and hand guns that are killing us. It represents our lawmakers who do not care enough after Columbine and Sandy Hook and all the other mass shootings to do anything to prevent 17 more dead children and countless lives shattered in Parkland. Help us believe something different. There must be change, and it must happen now!

SAVE OUR STUDENTS FROM GUN VIOLENCE

"...BUT GUNS NEED PROTECTING TOO"

No they don't. They are already protected under the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution which we fully support. However, where are children protected from those guns that are protected under the 2nd amendment, you ask?  Nowhere! Not even in schools!

"...BUT WE NEED THEM FOR HUNTING"

As we all know semi-automatic military grade assault rifles have always been part of that "Great American Pioneer Spirit". No they have not been, ever! They should only be in the hands of our military personnel PERIOD! And if anyone tries to say differently, then there's the first candidate for the "No Buy List".

WE'RE DYING FOR GUN RIGHTS

"RUBIO HAS GOT TO GO"

Kids protest after they learn how much the NRA invests in Marco Rubio

When asked by Stoneman Douglas student Cameron Kasky if he would stop  accepting donations from the National Rifle Association, Rubio answered  indirectly. The NRA has spent more than $3 million on Rubio’s behalf  through its political arm, and has given Rubio an A-plus rating, The  Washington Post’s Sean Sullivan has reported.  Michael Laughlin/Reuters 

"YOUR SILENCE IS KILLING US"

You just passed a $1.3 TRILLION spending bill. Where is the money for school security? Nowhere! You protected yourselves in all federal buildings, why can't you protect us in our schools? Can we have one of these President Trump...?

"ARE YOUR GUNS MORE PRECIOUS THAN OUR LIVES"

"WE NEED CHANGE NOW"

What do we want?  GUN CONTROL!...When do we want it? NOW!

"17 TO MANY"

image33

Pick any number you want, after any school shooting, and its too many. But for our elected officials, its still not enough. When will it be enough for you?

PROMOTE LOVE NOT VIOLENCE

image34

Sound familiar, well it should.  Its the same message that some of you screamed during the war and violence of the 1960's and 70's. And those of you who were there screaming then, are now lawyers and judges and politicians.  We can't believe you sold out to lobbyists and the NRA. You should all be ashamed of the people you've let yourselves become.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE EXPIRED ALONG WITH THE TEMPORARY ASSUALT RIFFLE BAN



The Public Safety and Recreational Firearms  Act  (the Federal Assault Weapons Ban) was enacted as part of the  Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. The prohibitions expired on September 13, 2004. 




 Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she would "introduce new legislation to ban assault weapons at the start of the next Congress". President Obama also said that he'd support a federal ban. 


These were reported on December 17th 2012, three days after an introverted 20-year-old with a form of autism who often accompanied  his mother to a gun range, shot and killed her in her bed, then took her semiautomatic rifle and two handguns into nearby Sandy Hook Elementary  School. He killed 20 first graders, four teachers, a psychologist and  the school’s principal, then shot himself to death as police arrived.
