And the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, may — just might actually – get some results.

They may actually shame – yes shame – our legislatures to finally DO SOMETHING about gun violence in our schools.

This moment looks different from Columbine or Sandy Hook – is it like the #metoo moment?

  • These kids can speak for themselves
  • These kids have grown up in a world of social media – the self-organizer
  • 3.9 million kids born after Columbine will vote for the first time in 2020
    • There are 5 million NRA members
    • The vote against unrealistic fears the NRA gens up is bigger!

How many lives – potential Einstein(s) – will have to be lost to gun violence in our schools before the shame of the feckless members of Congress exceeds their greed for NRA campaign funding?

Will it shock you to learn that since the massacre of 20 six and seven year olds and 6 of their teachers at Sandy Hook, Conn, in 2004 there have been 200 separate school shootings across America that cost the lives of 400 school children?

Are you surprised that the first 8 days since Parkland, there have been three more potential threats to the safety of our school children –

  • Spartanberg, South Carolina
  • Arlington, Texas
  • Whitter, California

The student in Southern California was overheard by a talking about a school shooting – authorities described a literal “arsenal” found in the student’s room (with a police warrant)


How hard do you think it is going to be the change the laws to protect our kids?

Here are some sensible changes that might make a difference —–
