I'd Even Give Up Fireworks - #WearOrange With Me And Help End Gun Violence

Imagine we have a time machine.

We go back, and stop the invention of gunpowder.

Sure, we'd lose out on fireworks, but we'd also avoid the current insanity of gun violence.

Given that there's no time machine, a more practical approach is to get some stricter rules in place about gun ownership. (And maybe sales of ammunition?)

Why haven't things already changed?

One reason: The National Rifle Association donates and spends a lot of money to buy influence. In 2016 they spent more than $57 million on political candidates, races, lobbying, etc...

Politicians won't be motivated to change things unless we the people demand change.

So join me, and Every Town For Gun Safety and all their affiliated groups and demand things change!

And wear orange today, June 2, 2017 to help spread the word.


The light in me recognizes and acknowledges the light in you,
