Get Rid of Guns and Rifles, Stop the Shooting

If your loved one was shot and killed by an 18-year old gunman in a recent shooting at a primary school in south Texas, would you think it is okay? 

An 18-year-old gunman opened fire Tuesday at a Texas elementary school, killing at least 18 children as he went from classroom to classroom, officials said, in the latest gruesome moment for a country scarred by a string of massacres. The assailant was killed by law enforcement.

The attack came just 10 days after a deadly, racist rampage at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket that added to a yearslong series of mass killings at churches, schools and stores. 

And the prospects for any reform of USA's gun regulations seem dim.  Why is that?  When are we going to get rid of guns and rifles (assault weapons) and stop the shooting?  When an 18-year old is able to freely buy a gun, what's on their mind?

A father who lost a daughter in the Parkland Florida shooting said, "This is preventable violence."  He went on to say how he has dealt with his loss, "We don't move on, we move forward."

NBA Warriors coach said, "When are we going to do something? Enough!"

Actor and Uvalde native Matthew McConaughey took to social media today, May 25, 2022, to address the shooting in his hometown.
