    Gun violence. 🙁 Yes it’s terrible and horrible and every other sad description I can name! God bless those who are suffering from loss because of it! How about lobbying to enforce the laws that are already on the books? Don’t take away my right, as a law abiding citizen, to bear arms. I may be the one who protects you someday.
