A press conference is being held right now in Wisconsin: 7 dead, 3 injured, including an officer. Oak Creek Wisconsin is the home of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. An officer opened fired and killed the gunman. The Temple is under lock down and the investigation is ongoing. The police are investigating this crime as an act of domestic terrorism. My thoughts are with the victims.
The media is already telling us that it is “not the time” to talk about gun control or gun violence. I say that that is in insult to the victims, and an insult to the American people. We need to do something to address gun violence in this country. We need to do something about the abuse of the 2nd Amendment. It is far to easy to get a gun in this country. The NRA and the gun lobby and the gun industry have blood on their hands. This must stop. This will stop. No. More. Gun. Deaths. Congress must investigate this issue, and create a special committee to discuss how best to restructure our gun laws. The 2nd Amendment has become a national license to kill. We must not let unhindered liberty for the sake of liberty get in the way of the health, happiness, freedom of life and limb, and safety of the American people.
I’ll have more on this later as events unfold.
