Another day ends in America. Another school shooting makes headlines. Another child walks into school in the morning and leaves in a body bag.

Another family that must bury their child before their time. Another family will miss out on the precious moments of life. Birthdays, graduations, weddings, career achievements, the birth of future grandchildren. None of these moments will happen for this family.
The Sandy Hook massacre was only a year and a half ago. 74 incidents of school shootings have occurred since then. And nothing has changed in this country.
I have nothing against the 2nd Amendment. But it was designed to allow American colonists to bear arms and protect themselves against the British Army.

It’s another day in America. Another school shooting makes headlines.
It’s time to end the madness and protect our children.
