Thirty thousand people die every year from guns.
Innocents die at the hands of madmen.
Our children, little children whose lives were just beginning, gunned down.
Shootings at schools, on college campuses and in offices constantly in the news.
Nineteen thousand commit suicide with guns.
The solution to this insanity? More guns!
Sounds crazy and senseless?
Because it is!
You’re applying for a job – you need a background check.
For a driver’s license – a background check.
Want a gun? Sure! Here it is. I don’t know who you are and why you need a gun.
This is freedom, my man! I don’t care why.
It is your business.
Want to kill a few kids? This is America! Here is the ammunition.
Want to buy a few guns and resell them? No problem. Let freedom ring!
And what about the people killed?
Little kids, somebody’s kids, shot by crazies with guns?
This is the price of freedom, my fellow Americans.
A 4 year old grabbing a gun ans killing a bystander?
America the beautiful, the NRA way.
And who are point people working on behalf of the NRA?
United States Senators and Representatives.
Cowards whose only motivation in life is power and money.
Paid agents of the gun industry and the NRA.
The NRA likes to delegate.
It pays members of Congress to do its bidding.
I do not want to waste my time talking about the Republican Party.
The Republican Party that I used to support is long gone.
What is left is a bunch of well-paid puppets and fools.
My problem is with some members of the Democratic Party.
The Party that calls itself the party of the people, the party of the regular guy.
Not the party of the rich and powerful. And maybe some Democrats fit this description.
But there a few cowards whose only concern is to be reelected.
They don’t care about innocent victims of mindless gun violence.
What happened during the Boston marathon is a terrible tragedy.
Three dead, over 170 injured.
And people came together.
People risked their lives to help those who got hurt.
We the people get stronger facing adversity.
But there is another world.
The world of greed and power.
The United States Congress.
Our “leaders”. Cowards!
There is a Boston tragedy happening every day in America.
Thirty people fall victim to gun violence EVERY DAY.
And these cowards blocked bill to require background checks for gun purchases.
Over 80% of Americans support the bil.
But not the gun industry, and not its PR wing, the NRA.
They bought Congress.
And it is easier to buy Congress than to buy a gun in America.
Here are the names of the cowards who call themselves Democrats:
Max Baucus (Mont.), Mark Begich (Alaska), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) and Mark Pryor (Ark.)
We will remember.
We remember the innocent victims
And we will remember those of you,cowards, who sold out to gun lobby.
