As I was putting my little Dan to bed, my thoughts were with the family of the victims in today’s shooting. What if the tragic event happened to one of my kids? It sounds crazy, but it could happen if we don’t do anything to stop the violence. Gun-related mass murdering had been on the rise and it occurred in places that we might have never expected. Even elementary school was the target, where else could our children be safe?

As parents, politicians and the entire nation, we need to do something. We need to take the guns away from the lunatics. My condolences go out to the victims’ family and friends. Mr. President, please help us.
