Do I really need to use the entire alphabet or do these 9 letters show the pattern?

I am ANGRY. I am tired. I am tired of crying. I am tired of crying and trying to think of solutions. I am tired of crying and trying to think of solutions when lives are at stake. I’m sure the “B” above was the biggest clue to my feelings about the massacre in Uvalde this week.

Why?

Why haven’t all the school deaths been enough for change? It Y took 1 “shoe bomber” to change TSA screening. ONE! This list is eye opening. Check and see where your senator stands. How much money does it take to buy their vote? Which Senators Have Taken the Most Money? https://elections.bradyunited.org/take-action/nra-donations-116th-congress-senators?fbclid=IwAR2RMr9kFKm9tbejTzXTDXTSPABHXjsO77kH4hVH2dvGWKdp2-Nmmane2xc When protests formed outside justices’ homes, it took 1 day and 20 minutes to pass legislation. Are their lives worth more than the 19 students and 2 teachers? (Especially when neighbors “helped” protesters organize)

When?

Now. Take action. Prayers are not saving our children. It hasn’t worked for over 20 years of school shootings. Just what do I want? need? demand? Here’s one idea. Let’s change the gun laws. Waiting periods. Two visits to purchase a gun with waiting periods in between. Only one purchasing place for an entire state. Require listening to multiple possibilities. Bounties for anyone who turns in folks who plan to harm others. This from Facebook. . . Sound familiar?

WHAT?

If police waited to respond because of the weapon the individual was using, even after he was shooting outside the school for 12 minutes, and police were pulling some students out classroom windows? link What happened during that hour the gunman was inside the building? How many lives could have been saved by earlier action? How many lives can be saved by action now? Ban assault weapons? Change the requirements for purchasing ammunition? Let’s go back to the 2nd Amendment. Stick your argument in your ear! or anywhere else the sun doesn’t shine!

Black powder guns for everyone. No interpretation required of the founding fathers’ words.

Don’t buy into the hype. Do the research. How many deaths? How many MORE deaths? How many school shootings? Which weapons? What was the effect of the previous ban on assault weapons in the US? How did New Zealand respond to their worst massacre? Why can’t we? Why can’t we have GUN SAFETY? And what about the calls to 911 from inside the classroom. @BeadingfanNancy Replying to @LeaderMcConnell @SenateGOP
Student calls to 911: 12:03—whispered she’s in room 112 12:10—said multiple dead 12:13—called again 12:16—says 8-9 students alive 12:19—student calls from room 111 12:21—3 shots heard on call 12:36—another call 12:43—asks for police 12:47—asks for police
