Quotations On Gun Control–Again!


The familiar refrain of sending “thoughts and prayers” by congress people who then do nothing about gun control after another massacre of innocents is sickening. It is time to love children more than guns.


Senate Chaplain Barry Black prayed for legislative action on gun violence Tuesday morning, a day after three children and three adults were shot and killed at a Christian school in Nashville.

Through his prayer, Black urged legislators to “move beyond thoughts and prayers.”

During his prayer, Black said, “Remind our lawmakers of the words of the British statesman Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.” (https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/watch-senate-chaplain-prays-for-lawmaker-action-after-nashville-shooting)

“When a country with less than five percent of the world’s population has nearly half of the world’s privately owned guns and makes up nearly a third of the world’s mass shootings, it’s time to stop saying guns make us safer.”

“I only wish the NRA and its jellyfish, well-paid supporters in legislatures both State and Federal would be careful to recite the whole of it, and then tell us how a heavily armed man, woman, or child, recruited by no official, led by no official, given no goals by any official, motivated or restrained only by his or her personality and perceptions of what is going on, can be considered a member of a well-regulated militia.”

                                                                       Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

“It is time to start referring to those members of Congress who oppose gun control as what they are–Pro Death of Children and Innocents. They are the toadies of the NRA and the gun lobby, and they must be voted out of office. The time to act is now.”

                                                                       Charles F. French

  1. I will NEVER understand why a, mainly educated, democratic country like America, can’t see the insanity which exists regarding the gun law. It is heart-breaking to read of, especially young children, continually dying because of it. Change it NOW! Sincerely.
