Richard Martinez blasts NRA & Politicians
We should all be tired of the senseless gun violence in this country. How many more must die? Richard Martinez, father of slain Christopher Martinez, displays his anguish and anger.
"When will this insanity stop? Richard Martinez asked. When will enough people say, 'Stop this madness!' Too many have died. We should say to ourselves, 'Not one more!'"
Elliot Rodger’s killing spree no longer seems abnormal. It is sad that it no longer faze us to occupy the news stream 24/7. When someone like Michael Moore, a gun control activist, seems almost resolve to living in a country where this is the norm, one should worry. How many with gravitas on this issue will confront the NRA?
When will the media engage with fact based data that allows Americans to decide what policy they want? When will the traditional media do its job? Right now it seems only comedians and satirist can be counted on for fact based information on prescient issues. Thank you Jon Stewart, John Oliver, and the comedy channel for reporting on how effective gun control is working in Australia.
