No More Befores, Only Nows

How many more newscasts before we decide it's enough?

How many more broken parents and friends before we choose to make a change? 

How many more children need to die before anyone can say goodbye? 

How many more times should students be scared of going to school because of a shooting not a test? 

How many more legislators will value the right to bear arms over the right of life? 

How many more Sandy Hooks do we need to happen before people show regular attention towards gun control? 

How many more Pulse Nightclub shootings will happen before the government realizes that we need COMPREHENSIVE REFORM?

The answer to all is zero. 

It's time to have REAL gun control.
