Have we no conscience as a country?

Bang, Bang #1

On Thursday, December 7, 2017, Casey Marquez and Francisco Fernandez went to school. They were students at Aztec High School in Aztec, New Mexico. Casey was 17 years old. Francisco was 18 years old.  They never came home from school.  They were shot dead at school.

On December 6, 2017, the House passed The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.  This will permit concealed carry license holders to conceal a handgun in other states.

No single legislation will prevent gun violence and no single legislation causes gun violence, but the national attitude prevents a change in the gun culture that is part of the American fabric.

The gun culture kills. Our youth are being killed at school. Our youth are being killed at concerts. Our youth are being killed at malls. Our youth are being shot and killed.

Casey and Francisco are dead. They were shot at school.

Where is our collective American conscience?
