This destroyed me. A few years ago I was driving when I saw half a dozen helicopters above my son’s school. As I got closer, the streets were blocked off and there were more police than I could count. I stopped by a barricade but all they could tell me was to go home and turn on the news. The TV said there was an active shooter. It took hours to find out the shooting occurred in the parking lot and no students were involved. My horror was relieved. This mother and hundreds like her will never have any relief thanks to 1.) politicians who allowed the assault weapons ban to expire under Bush, and refuse to replace it; 2.) Donald Trump who ended President Obama’s ban on the sale of guns to people with mental illness; 3.) Republicans who take tens of million of dollars from the NRA to block any common sense gun law reform, including background checks and bans on certain types of gun sales to the public; 4.) Democrats who do nothing.
