Of course, it could also have happened here at OUR Mall, or at one of our many other "gun free zones," or what have you...
So, here's the question: what are you going to do about it?
This, you see, is why you get paid the big bucks. It's why you're there. And while, perhaps, I've missed it, it seems to me that there has been deafening silence on the part of all of those who are either tasked with protecting us or who want the job of protecting us by representing us in a legislative capacity, be it local, state or national.
I want to know what YOU are going to do about this so it never happens again.
In fact, I DEMAND to know what you're going to do because here's a simple clue: what we're doing... or not doing now?
We can no longer ignore this. We can no longer believe it's not going to happen here. We can no longer turn away from this issue.
So tell me: what are YOU going to do about it?
I want to know. And I urge every one of you, and my tracking software puts the figure into the hundreds; regardless of party, regardless of who you now support, to contact those people and ask them.
Do not allow yourselves to be shucked or jived. Don't put up with the "SNR," or the "Sincere Non-Response."
Tell them that if they don't respond or if they come back with crap that you will not vote for them.
They HAVE to have a plan and WE have the right to know what that plan looks like.
The time to wait is long past.
We have arrived at the time to act.
You hearin' me, Jaime? What about you, Jay? Patty, you got any of those oh, so political pearls of wisdom to drop on us? Ann, stop jacking our taxes and fees up long enough to focus on THIS issue. Liz, what's the plan? Annette? Paul?
We need to know. And we need to know right... fricking.... now.
