Petition the White House

White HouseThe Newton school massacre has led to a rapidly growing petition at the White House’s web site, demanding action on gun control.  Surely there must be some way to balance 2nd Amendment rights with the need to prevent the senseless murder of innocents?

The petition won’t actually create any legislative proposals, but will require the WH, by it’s own rules, to address the issue.

I signed.  Will you?

Strong Words from Mitt Romney

An officer and a citizen were killed in the latest random assault weapon murder, but let’s get our priorities straight…

MIAMI (AP) — Mitt Romney says gun laws are not the answer to the recent string of mass shootings.

Romney says it’s not about the weapons used in the attacks, but about the individuals who choose to commit violence against others.

The Republican presidential candidate spoke hours after a police officer, a gunman and a third person were killed in a shooting near Texas A&M University.

Romney says “thoughtful consideration” is needed about what can be done to prevent violent attacks. But he says he isn’t calling for any particular legislation.

Rest in peace, County Constable Brian Bachmann. No one has your back.
