White Lives Matter: Defeat the NRA!

White America is key to passing background check legislation. I say White America is key for several reasons. Yes, there's much black on black crime and yes that should be addressed; however, when we deal with sensible gun law legislation is when it'll trickle down to all areas of society. When White America gets serious about mass school shootings and theater shootings is when the NRA and Republicans will begin to listen. Mass school and theater shootings is a public health crisis.

In 2015 America saw just as many mass shootings almost on an everyday basis. Guns unregulated and to a degree unregistered have become a public health crisis and epidemic. The notion almost anyway can get their hands on a gun is sickening. On January 5, 2016 - President Barack Obama broke down in tears talking about gun violence relative to Sandy Hook Elementary School and the streets of Chicago.

Why did the President have an emotional breakdown when talking about Sandy Hook Elementary School? It's simple, President Obama saw those little 1st graders with their brains blown out, bullet holes in their heads, chests, faces...everywhere! That's enough to drive any civilized person insane!

Can you imagine being President and in your briefings seeing 20 school children ranging from ages 6 - 7 years old lying in a pool of blood?! Let's look at the ages of the children killed:
Charlotte Bacon, 6
Daniel Barden, 7
Olivia Engel, 6
Josephine Gay, 7
Dylan Hockley, 6
Madeleine Hsu, 6
Catherine Hubbard, 6
Chase Kowalski, 7
Jesse Lewis, 6
Ana Marquez-Greene, 6
James Mattioli, 6
Grace Mcdonnell, 7
Emilie Parker, 6
Jack Pinto, 6
Noah Pozner, 6
Caroline Previdi, 6
Jessica Rekos, 6
Avielle Richman, 6
Benjamin Wheeler, 6
Allison Wyatt, 6

Also to add 6 staff was killed. The perpetrator's mother, Nancy Lanza was killed. The perpetrator Adam Peter Lanza committed suicide. The weapons he used: Bushmaster XM15-E2S and a GLOCK 20SF!

If a movie is ever made about Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting that took place December 14, 2012 it would be a powerful view of why sensible gun laws and background checks are so needed.

When Whites folks take a page from groups like Black Lives Matter, Rainbow Push Coalition, Faith Community of St. Sabina, Tha Movement University, etc., and begin organizing on a national level thwarts Tea Party Republicans and the NRA is when we'll see real change.

When will the WHITE LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT standup?!
