Thoughts adapted from a Letter to the Editor of the Daily Local News:
On Monday we awoke to news of yet another tragic mass murder. How many times do we go through this before we demand our elected officials change gun laws?
While Gun Sense Chester County is not “anti gun” we are for common sense gun regulation. The permissiveness of gun purchase and carry regulations has gone well beyond the bounds of common sense.
And as we sit here absorbing yet another mass gun murder…
Today, the National Rifle Association is working to pass Federal law making it easier to purchase gun silencers. (House of Representatives Bill 3668)
Today, the NRA is working to overturn a Maryland regulation banning the sale of semi-automatic rifles.
And, today, you are…?
I am sure the words sad, upset, frustrated and more may come to mind. The truth is, those words without action are not going to change anything.
If you think we need to find a different path forward — call and tell your elected officials. Do it TODAY.
And then, watch how they vote on gun related issues.
If you give us your email, we’ll be happy to keep you informed. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Join us at our meeting Tuesday, Oct 3 at 7:15 p.m. at 10 W. Pleasant Grove Rd., West Chester 19382 (Westminster Presbyterian Church) if you’d like to share your thoughts about this tragedy and learn more about about gun violence and gun regulation issues.
The meeting is free and open to all.
