On May 24, 2022, an 18-year-old fatally shot nineteen children and two teachers and wounded seventeen others at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The children were in the fourth grade. The children were watching a movie when the killer came into their classroom with an assault rifle, and killed them.
How do the people who oppose banning the sale/ownership of assault weapons stay in power? They stay in power because they are elected to represent the people of their state. They are not hiding their position on gun control. These representatives state very bluntly that they support the sale/ownership of weapons of war. We, as Americans, are letting this happen over and over again.
If your state has a government official who is pro assault weapons, who is against gun control on any level, then you, as a citizen of that state, must make your voice heard.
Hear in your head the children in that forth grade classroom screaming and crying. See in your mind’s eye the carnage that the assault rifle caused to those small bodies.
The shooting at the Robb Elementary School does not only belong to Texas. That shooting and all the shootings, belong to every American. We as citizens of America, must make the change happen.
