BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON: The Children of Sandy Hook vs. the U.S. Congress and Gun Violence in America
Paperback and ebook available March, 2017
During the election President Donald Trump entered into a pact with the NRA “To make America free again”. Adam Winkler, a law professor at the University of California-Los Angeles states, “They are tight with Trump Administration. They have their people in place and they know exactly what they’re going for.” Already Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), who was instrumental in defeating the 2013 Assault Weapon Ban, has a bill read twice and referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The situation is grave and urgently needs to be understood. This book, The Children of Sandy Hook vs. the US Congress is a provocative analysis of the vast gap between the American people who are intent on protecting children and the people who are intent on protecting guns whatever the cost to U.S. society. The book is about the ethical failure of the pro-gun Senators who deceived the American people with the arguments they presented that led to the failure of the Assault Weapon Ban bill in 2013. Documentation is presented to support the contention that when the Senators’ theoretical arguments are juxtaposed with the real life accounts of the Sandy Hook Massacre their deceptive language strategies for defeating the Assault Weapon Ban bill are exposed.
If we as a people are to regain our humanity the madness must stop. The members of the U.S. Congress who voted against the 2013 Assault Weapons Ban bill and the bills of 2016 must look at themselves and change their behavior. They can no longer represent the gun lobby that is selling the military style guns which are being used in mass killings of American people. They need to know that democracy breaks down when those who govern condone violence against the nation’s own children. From the very young to the very old, people of every race and ethnic group, across class, gender, and sexual orientation, the U.S. Congress is putting the entire population at risk. The Senators and Members of the House of Representatives who voted against the 2013 and 2016 Assault Weapons bills can no longer be blinded to the consequences of their actions. They must listen to the American people and the organizations that represent them.
