Nothing substantive has come from Congress since the bloody slaughter in Newtown. Who and where are the leaders who won’t ignore the murdered children, and their families? When we need someone to step up and take responsibility, where are they? I remember names like George Aiken of Vermont, Frank Church of Idaho, Albert Gore Sr. of Tennessee. They put their political careers on the line, second to doing what is right. When it was unpopular to come out against the Vietnam War, or in favor of Civil Rights, they stood on principle. Those are the heroes. What or who drives today’s crop, I am uncertain. Handlers? Today we witness poll driven professionals, with fingers in the air. Isn’t it a pity, when 89% of NH’s citizens say they support Universal Background Checks, and 72% say they want the assault rifle ban reinstated, that we hear nothing from our electeds. If they so fear losing their positions that they won’t stand up for what’s right and safe and fair…what have we become?
“There are plenty in Washington who expect next to nothing to come of the massacre at Newtown, and believe that if compromise can barely survive the committee process it will certainly be doomed in the full Congress.”
“This is why taking public action matters. It’s why elections matter. Suit up, people. It’s time to get in the ground game.” The Project for Safer Communities NH
