The shooting and killings go on and on. Three promising university football players were murdered in Virginia, four college students in Idaho were slain, five people killed in a nightclub shooting in Colorado, and now at least six killed at a Walmart. Tragic!
Four years ago, in a Community Voices article titled “Where do we go from here?,” I wrote: “Have you noticed that Congress has finally passed meaningful firearm legislation? Me neither. … Have you noticed that Congress marches to the beat of the gun and weapon manufacturers, the fossil fuel industry, and the wealthy plutocrats? Yeah, me too.” The cowardly do-nothing politicians value their career and the money train over human lives. They lack adequate morals, ethics and virtue. Shame on them.
