Now Is The Time
I fear for Americans in general. There has been yet another shooting in the U.S. and the Governor of Lousiana Bob Jindal has said repeatedly to the media that now is the time to pray and grieve, not talk about gun control. So tell us, if now is not the time, when will it ever be the time?
As far as I'm concerned, any politician who says this is a moral accomplice in every shooting death, particularly Gov. Jindal because he signed the legislation that loosened Louisiana's gun laws.
NOW is the time to talk about gun safety. It is ALWAYS the time to talk about gun safety. It will never not be the time. And any politician who argues that "now is not the time" is a stooge for the gun industry.
Over 6500 Americans have died so far this year from gun-related incidents. That's more than died in the World Trade Centre. And nobody has declared a war on guns yet.
