“No more names” campaign launched to commemorate six-month anniversary of Sandy Hook

From the good folks at Mayors Against illegal Guns:

No more names

June 14th is the six-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Every single day since then, another 33 Americans have been murdered with guns — and still, Congress has failed to take meaningful action to reduce gun violence

Today, Mayors Against Illegal Guns is launching “No More Names: The National Drive to Reduce Gun Violence,” a bus tour that will visit 25 states in 100 days to commemorate the thousands of Americans who have been murdered since Newtown and to urge Congress to pass common sense legislation that will prevent future tragedies. At every stop along the way, gun violence survivors, family members and community members will come together to read the names of people who have been murdered with guns and to rally for comprehensive and enforceable background checks legislation. These powerful events will remind Washington that this fight isn’t over, and that we’ll continue to demand action until Congress passes new laws to reduce gun crime and save lives.

    Murder is already illegal, what new laws could be enacted that would make a murderer not murder?

    NHTSA data suggest that motor coach crashes and fatalities have surged in recent years even as highway deaths as a whole have fallen 25% since 2005. Isn’t this “No More Names” campaign sending a dangerously mixed message by using an agent of death more deadly that guns to promote their gun safety message. There have been multiple bus crashes just this week, with serious injuries and several fatalities. It’s clear that hizzonner Bloobmerg’s doesn’t care about saving lives. His efforts are a misguided waste of time and resources. He’d save more lives spending his money on something else.

    No more names….. Biden, Schumer, Feinstein, Obama, Cuomo, and the list goes on.

    Opinions are best expressed at the polls.
