Stand up for our rights

What if I were to tell you that Americans are being held hostage by a terrorist organization, and that these terrorists have enabled the deaths of thousands of Americans, including school children. You'd expect our government to do something about it wouldn't you? What if you then found out that the government won't do anything because this very same terrorist organization has bought out the majority of our representatives through campaign contributions? Time to put an end to this don't you think? So please stand up to terrorism and demand that our government takes down the NRA, and take the guns off our streets and out of the hands of people who would do us harm. Make it clear to your representatives that you will not vote for any candidate that does not make taking down the NRA and passing real gun control legislation their top priority.

If there is one right guaranteed to every American it is that of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. It is ingrained in our conciseness. This is the most fundamental part of being an American. But as long as we have to live with in fear of sending our children to school because they could be murdered by a lunatic with guns, we are being denied this right. No American should have to fear that their children are not safe at school. No American should have to fear for their own lives in a movie theater, a mall, or other public place. That is the very definition of terrorism.

We have fought wars against foreign terrorists. Spent billions of dollars to defeat them. Sent our sons and daughters off to fight and die, so that the rest of us could feel safer. We can end the domestic terrorism imposed on us by the NRA simply by not voting for any politician that takes money from them. Once we have rid the government of these corrupt politicians they can get to work to craft real laws that will get these guns of the streets and let us feel safe again.
