Washington DC Shooter Kills with an Assault Rifle. This unfortunate shooting is just another shooting that could have been avoided by banning assault rifles. What’s it going to take, another Sandy Hook? Another mass murderer in a night club? And yet the GOP and the NRA are in bed with each other, fighting for the right to own these massive guns that only the police should have.
James Hodgkinson’s police record told about the former spousal abuse, but the woman didn’t press charges. If she would have pressed charges he wouldn’t have been able to buy a gun, due to recent legislation that would keep men who abuse their mates, can’t buy a gun.Of course, the NRA is against anything that interferes wth the ability to buy a gun like this and go out and shoot large groups of people. If a man abuses his mate he shouldn’t be able to buy a gun.
Stricter, safer gun laws would prohibit the sale of a gun to someone with mental illness. Although friends said the shooter was a good guy and was always fun be around. There is something to say when a normal person gets wrapped up in the politics of the day and goes berserk.
And, having a President who insults and disregards large groups of people, who disrespects women, who says racist, sexist remarks. He even mocked a disabled person. Our President has said many things that affect people in a negative way. He wants to take health care away from 24 million people, he has allegedly sexually assaulted women and bragged about it. A President who is trying to keep Muslum’s out of our country because of their religion. There are millions of people who don’t like the way our country is being run, the President and the GOP leaders trying to undo every good thing Obama ever did. It’s downright meanness. The bullying has got to stop. It’s not all the reason this incident happened but I say it may have been a part of it.
Many of us on both sides are not proud of Mr. Trump and his tweet storms.
I hope all the people who had to witness this horrible event can come to terms with it.
A writer who just published three novels in her paperback book called "The Eve Chronicles". The first book is called"From the Waters of Coyote Springs" the second, "Felix and Eve" and the third is "The Arrangement". All three are available separately in ebook format.I grew up in Wisconsin, then moved out west to Oregon in the early eighties, I worked as a forester all over Oregon and in some of the most remote areas of the Wallowa Mountains near the notrious Hells Canyon around the Snake River in eastern Oregon. The book begins there taken from out of my journals. Eve is looking for her place in the world."Felix and Eve" takes place in the coastal town of Gold Beach, which is known for astounding sunsets. Eve is hired as a live-in caregiver to Felix, a cantankerous man who sees no reason why she is there. They develop a close relationship that turns the summer into a learning experience for each of the."The Arrangement" is about Eve, as a retired baby boomer who finally settles in the eclectic town of Eugene. Eve owns property on the mystical Moon Mountain. Vinnie her long time friend, lives in a yurt in her back yard. Every year she gets a letter with a skeleton key in it, and she travels to Catalina Island to spend the summer with a former lover. Vinnie stays behind to caretake her extensive gardens. He is in love with Eve but remains silent.After my forestry days were done, I returned to my former social service career and worked 20 years with people with disabilities. Ironically I had to retire due to symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.I found my journals from the eighties in the back of my closet and wrote three fictionalized memoirs. Having to retire due to MS was one of the best things that has happened to me. I retired early and was able to be the author I had always dreamed of.
