The American public is in the cross hairs of tragedy once again.

Another day and another mass shooting.  There have been more mass shootings than calendar days so far in 2015. How can this be...what is passing for normal in our country?

People don't risk their lives to come to America in pursuit of the right to bear arms.

They come to have a better life, a chance at the American Dream.They come to worship as they please, and to have the freedom to have a voice. People risk their lives to come here to exercise the First Amendment.  It is essential that we use the First Amendment to improve the Second.

To live out our American dream stricter gun control must be  fundamental.
