The day was truly encouraging. So many people of all types and ages. Strollers and Grandparents. I pray that this movement - that these teenagers have created - will continue to grow among people of all ages and across the nation.
I hope we can all help them to get 18 to 30 year olds (and older) registered to vote this November. And that we keep the pressure on the members of Congress, mainly Republican, that favor the NRA over common sense gun laws.
Most gun owners support better gun laws. The NRA never will.
These brave and well-spoken teenagers have the real opportunity to turn this tragedy in something that will make the future safer for students, teachers, and other innocent people, as well.

Short video of when the People had their signs held up. There were signs everywhere. Fantastic!! A wonderful day for America. We must keep it moving.
Finally, here is a link to my proposed Amendment to the US Constitution that will clarify the Second Amendment - The Right to Bear Arms. It called, Gun Rights and the Death Penalty.
So please encourage everyone you know to get registered to vote! And on November 6st let us all go to the polls and vote out our dysfunctional Congress. Especially, the Republicans.
Because We Can.
God Bless the Students and God Bless America!!!
