What Would Edmund Burke Do?
So, where do we stand post-Orlando? We have a public health emergency related to gun deaths in our country. If you own a gun you are 9 times more likely to kill yourself and 10 times more likely to die of a gunshot wound. Guns are more dangerous to their owners and the families of their owners than to anyone else. We have a Congress that is bought and paid for by the gun lobby. We have assault rifles for sale legally. It is overwhelming, the problem is so vast.
So, what to do? I have been writing to my senator weekly about the lack of hearings for the Supreme Court nominee, so I can include this, but what would be most effective? What is needed to move forward? That is what I do not know.
