I have been watching the breaking news about the horrific tragedy unfolding in a small community in Texas. Surprise, surprise, it was committed by someone who is reported to have used an assault weapon.

As I asked earlier, how many lives must be needlessly lost before the U.S. enacts some reasonable gun reform? It was 26 and counting so far in the Texas disaster. One is still too many. Ignoring the issue is a certain way to keep it easy to obtain and use assault rifles to take lives.

I would willingly agree to give up my "right" to own a weapon of mass destruction if it avoids one innocent death.
