The slaughter of the innocent….

The Texas shooting shocked the world as pictures of the victims came out and they were mainly babies between 8 and 11. It must be heartbreaking for the parents and all they did was put their child into school as millions around the world do everyday. As a mother and a grandmother I cannot believe that this is still happening and nothing is being done to curb gun violence in the United States.

It needs a brave person who will step out of their comfort zone in politics or the Judicial to start lobbying for gun control and to try and stop this happening, but nobody is brave enough to do that as all the politicians do is endless salad words and then filibuster to stop any changes.

There is no gun control in the States and I don’t care that it is set in stone. These rights were drawn up when the USA was a young country and where everyone had a gun for safety and to be honest I cannot imagine the founding fathers ever thought that some nut job with guns would walk into any school and murder so many children. It is time for a change otherwise hundreds more children will die and the word salad will continue with nothing ever been done. Children are not sacrificial lambs but rather they are the future of any country and to take that away demands justice.
