  3. 17 lost and the mentality is still “well, no telling what SHE (HRC) would have gotten us into.” So, we lost more kids next week and the week after and we get more indifferent. People will pray and send donations and consider their conscience clear. I so hope some of the kids impacted by gun violence will decide to run for office and start the movement to change things.

    • I couldn’t believe Paul Ryan with his now is not the time to do anything until we know all the facts…I am wondering what facts he doesn’t know yet? Our children are being murdered in our schools – that is the only fact we need to know.
      And yes, I hope we have people running for office on both sides of the aisle who have some sense of compassion and decency.
