Enough is enough! I won’t send thoughts to the families of these lives taken in Orlando. I won’t call this a tragic event either. I won’t be passive anymore.
It is Sunday morning, I am about to get ready start what I thought it would be a great day. However, I turn on the TV, and the first thing I see is CNN reporting that 50 lives have been taken by a coward terrorist in a night club in Orlando.
Gun violence is a disease, and it needs to be treated as such. I don’t have the answers on how to fix the problem, but here’s a simple proposal:
- Allow the CDC to study gun violence, gather more data, and identify viable routes to address the issue — while still protecting 2nd amendment rights our constitution guarantees. Right now congress won’t allow CDC to even study gun violence. You can thank NRA and its lobbying for it.
- Fix background check process, to prevent potential unstable individuals from buying guns. Here’s a quick fact to illustrate how broken is the current policy: the FBI can add a potential terrorist to a no-fly list, but it CANNOT prevent that same individual from walking into a gun shop, and buying a semi-automatic rifle, and ammunition.
