Dear Central Coast Ceasefire Oregon members,
Please join us to voice our (fear, frustration, anger, hope) with a BROKEN federal political process that has once again failed to protect our children from gun violence in our schools.
Yesterday’s shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkdale, Florida was the 18th school shooting in 2018. (It was the 29th mass shooting in 2018). Since January 1, our Nation is now averaging one school shooting every 60 hours (2.5 days).
Enough with the GOP’s idle musings about the mental health of the shooter or the GOP’s pleas for students to report “unusual” stuff to authorities. It is the responsibility of us adults, not the kids, to safeguard our school children just as our parents safeguarded us.
You want to talk about mental health? Let’s talk about the lifelong impact on the mental health of the 3,000 students who lived through yesterday’s terror and the families of those who did not.
Too many guns and too few balls. Time for the GOP to “man up” against the NRA.
