It just occurred to me that folks might want an open thread.
I know there’s a lot of horror over the Newtown shootings. I wrote something brief (below) but if you do nothing else, please call the White House and Congress today and tell them that this country needs sane gun legislation to stop these kinds of events from happening. If we flood them with calls today, we might drown out the NRA’s money and lobbyists.
White House: 202-456-1111
US Representatives & Senators: 202-224-3121
I’ve gotten through to everyone, and was just told by the staffer of my conservative Republican Senator (Mark Kirk) that they’ve gotten “a lot of calls on this today.”
