Seriously, Fucking Fix This

19 kids are dead at a Texas school today because guns are everywhere and easy to get in the United States of America.

Yes, there was a person pulling the trigger. We don’t know why this person did what he did. We don’t know what was causing him think this was a thing that he could or should do. But 19 kids and 2 adults are dead (at least) because of what happened at this Texas school because guns are everywhere and easy to get in the United States of America.

Who can fix this? Congress can fix this. The President can fix this. Our state legislators and governors can fix this.

But they haven’t.

Uvalde. Buffalo. Oxford. Boulder. Atlanta. El Paso. Dayton. Virginia Beach. Parkland. Sutherland Springs. Orlando. San Bernardino. Charleston. Marysville. Aurora. Sandy Hook. Columbine.

There are too many cities and towns and counties that have endured mass shootings to list here. It’s horrifying.

When is it going to be enough?

We need to make them fucking fix it.

Call your members of Congress and demand that they fucking fix it. (Hint: they can pass laws, in case they forgot.) (202) 224-3121

Call your Governor. Call your state legislators. Tweet the President.

Then do this: not another political donation until they have fixed it for real. No more contributions to candidates, incumbents, political parties, and their PACs. No more money. The faucet is off.

Not a dime.

Make our leaders have the political will to fix this.

As for Congress, and specifically the elected officials in Congress who are of good will and good intentions who believe that guns are out of control in this country, here’s something that is true: we the people, your constituents, need bold action and leadership on solving the gun crisis NOW. We will think better of those who lead boldy.

Do this before you do anything else. Find a way to make it happen.

If we change the laws, then the culture will follow.

Let’s get it done.
