A powerful voice has been added in the fight to end gun violence in America:
After the shooting, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey posted a rallying cry for gun control along with a link to the website for the March for Our Lives movement.
Something has to be done. Gun violence is worsening:
Since 2014, the number of non-gun homicides rose by less than two percent, from 4,864 in 2014 to 4,947 in 2016. But during those same two years the number of gun homicides rose by more than 30 percent, from 11,000 to well over 14,000.
Trump just had more "thoughts" and "prayers" to offer, once again. That ain't gonna wash:
But considering the current dialogue around gun violence, combined with the government's lack of action on gun violence prevention, a lot of people weren't happy to hear "thoughts and prayers" yet again.
What is important is the public's support for stricter gun laws:
The poll shows roughly two-thirds of voters, 66 percent, support stricter gun control laws in the U.S., while only 28 percent oppose strengthening the nation’s gun laws. The remaining 6 percent of voters have no opinion.
