Gun Control Starts With You And Me
June 12, 2016
I spoke this evening at the rally at the Wisconsin Statehouse held to deal with mass slaughter in Orlando. I spoke from the heart about the loss of life that forced our nation to lower flags half-mast and how the NRA needs to be curtailed. I stressed that our sense of loss, anger, and fear as a nation and as gay Americans needs to be translated into passion for urging congress to write and pass meaningful gun control measures. I also urged people to have conversations not just with folks we agree with but everyone as we must vote in numbers that matter and send a message all can understand. This gun violence must end. It starts with you and me. When I concluded there was strong applause.
