Another day and

another mass killing by assault weapons. And yes, prayers are said yet again. We must ask ourselves, are our thoughts and prayers working? We can't ask the victims - they're dead. We need to talk to the victims families…of which there are many. Ask them whether all of our prayers worked in saving their loved ones life. Why wait? Really, why wait? Speak out. Do something.

And then there is this - why on God's green earth does a private citizen really "need" an assault weapon? Oh, I know, it's always the same damn thing --but-but it's their right. However, all those poor victims of that vicious murdering rampage had rights too…and their rights don't kill anyone! Their right was simply to pursue “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” Tell me, how should one enjoy those rights if they are dead! Praying for them is not working! We need to do something . NOW!
