Mass Murders Every Day

Somehow it's always a surprise, even though, horrifyingly in America, it shouldn't be anymore. There have been 2180 shootings since Sandy Hook, nearly one a day. This year alone we've had 250 mass shootings in just over 200 days. The violence, the horror, the terror, the loss, the scars seen and unseen, if nothing changes, the 40% of Americans who have experienced gun violence, either personally or through someone they know, will grow ever larger.

Over the past 40 weeks, we've covered a lot of popular policies which our politicians ignore, but none of them, not even ending child separation (88%), or ending the war in Yemen (82%) come even close to the unanimity with which Americans are crying out to their representatives to start implementing simple policies to save our children and ourselves from senseless violence.

Do you support or oppose requiring background checks for all gun buyers?

Support - 94% (98% D; 92% R; 94% I) Oppose -  4%   (2% D; 6% R; 4% I)

There is no panacea policy that will stop this mass violence, especially when America is drowning in a sea of guns, and even more so, when Trump incites and encourages right wing terrorists with his vitriolic white nationalist screeds. But, it's a place to start, and as we will see, the American people are largely in agreement on many other gun control policies.

So why are children allowed to be gunned down in schools, and shoppers murdered in stores week after week, year after year? We all know the answer: The NRA and weapons manufacturers has bought corrupt politicians to prevent any restrictions on gun ownership, and prevent any liability coming back to them when tragedy strikes. These politicians have decided that their money and their power is worth hundreds of dead children and defying the entire American populace. We will not forget, or forgive what has happened, and we must make them regret such a devil's bargain.

Let your representatives know that you we cannot allow one more mass shooting in America, they must  act to represent us and pass common sense gun laws! Contact info can be found at:  https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative
