Thought for the day:

  • July 23, 2015, 3 dead, 7 hurt when gunman opens fire in Lafayette movie theater
  • July 16, 4 Marines killed in attacks on Chattanooga military facilities
  • June 17, 2015, a mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston
  • Two years and seven months since the gun massacre of 26 people, 20 of them children, in Newtown, Connecticut.
  • Three years since the shooting in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado where 12 were killed and 70 people injured
  • Three years on August 5 since the killing of 6 people and wounding of 4 in a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin

Congress has been unable to find any way to pass any law since for any of these shootings, to make Americans safer.
By contrast,
  • Jul 9, 2015 - Kathryn Steinle shot in San Francisco by an undocumented immigrant. 
  • In three weeks, the House of Representatives passed the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act," which threatens to cut off federal spending on community safety programs unless cities act to protect our citizens from violent acts when perpetrated by immigrants.
