'Act to end the slaughter'

Print Article

After the shootings of small children at Sandy Hook elementary school, congressional leaders responded, "not the time to talk about it."

After the concert massacre in Las Vegas, "not the time,"

After teens were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Florida, "not the time."

This droning congressional mantra grows tiresome and substitutes for action. They hope we will forget until the next shooting tragedy happens. So our school children become collateral damage, caught in this web of political rhetoric and inaction and become victims in the bloody thirst for campaign donations.

Why on earth would an 18 year old own a military style assault weapon meant for one purpose - to kill masses of people? A legitimate sportsman does not a need a military assault weapon to hunt. Now someone with a grudge can mow down children, teachers and young people at concerts. We can't stop people from holding grudges, but we can stop them from clutching an assault weapon while holding a grudge.

Now is the time for our leaders, especially the Speaker from Janesville, to act and end the slaughter.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. it's not" - Dr. Seuss. Judy Robson
