“The 2013 Assault Weapons Ban bill failed and more mass killings have occurred, including the San Bernardino Massacre, the Charleston Church Massacre, the Orlando Massacre, and the Dallas Massacre – and each time there is a mass killing the outrage of the public grows stronger but the gun lobby does not grow weaker. Following the Orlando Massacre a 15-hour filibuster by Senator Christopher Murphy of Connecticut, and a 26-hour sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives did not shift the pro-gun Senate or House and the bills on universal background checks and a ban on gun purchases by those on federal watch lists failed.”

BOOK EXCERPT – “Theory Versus Lived Experience”

 

The Children of Sandy Hook vs. the U.S. Congress and Gun Violence in America

During the 2016 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 Weapons Ban bill, has had a bill read twice and referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The Children of Sandy Hook vs. The U.S. Congress and Gun Violence in America 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 Weapons 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 Weapons 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 They can no longer represent the gun lobby that is selling the military style guns which are being used in mass killings of American people.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, 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.
