It has been six months since the community of Newtown endured the nightmare that ensued after a troubled young man entered an elementary school and destroyed the lives of its families. In an effort to empathize with their unthinkable tragedy, we sent condolence cards, checks to aid in financial support, and spoke out about out country's controversial gun laws.
Regardless of your personal beliefs regarding guns, there is no question in this writer's mind that our system needs to be revamped making common sense changes that will allow our second amendment rights to be preserved while keeping guns out of the reach of those with the intent to commit senseless crimes.
I would encourage you to watch this video. It was made recently by those who lost children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December. If you are so inclined, you can follow the site to remain up to date on the work that is being done to fight the fight on gun reform.
In addition, I would also encourage you to contact your legislators to voice your opinion regarding this issue. Our congressional leaders can be contacted via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, as well as the good old snail mail. We are their constituents, which gives us the right to influence our legislators to vote on our behalf.
