Action on guns demanded

Published 9:13pm Wednesday, May 15, 2013

To the editor:

I demand that our government create regulations for guns that are as strong as they are for our cars, toys and food.

I expect my elected leaders to put our children’s safety over their political careers and the profit and influence of the gun industry.

As a mom, I have the right to know that my children are safe from gun violence, from the moment they leave my arms in the morning until they return home later in the day.

As a parent, I have the right to preserve my children’s innocence and shield them from gun violence in America, both real and scripted.

For the sake of our children, we demand that our teachers be focused on teaching our children, not training to be armed guards.

As citizens, we expect to have access to complete and accurate information about the impact of gun violence on our communities.

As voters, we will hold our elected officials accountable for keeping our children safe from gun violence.
