million moms for gun control


I've been debating whether or not to post about this for the last two weeks...this blog is really not meant to be political...however, it is a blog about family (mine in particular) and this is something really important to my family. After the shootings in Sandy Hook my husband I ended up in tears almost every night thinking about the senseless tragedy and the devastating loss that all those families were going through. It shook us to the core, hitting close to home for so many reasons. Since then there have been so many more shootings that I have lost track of the numbers. In the wake of that tragedy there have numerous marches and petitions asking for increased gun control laws -- I have marched for various things in my lifetime and I felt strongly that this was one I wanted to be a part of. As for taking the kids...I think it's important to teach them that if you really believe in an issue that you do have a voice and you can make it heard.

Good for you, girl. To a European like me, the entire discussion is surreal and I watched the Morgan Piers debates open mouthedly. You gave a invaluable lesson to your children. I hope the new bill will accomplish a step in the right direction.

I'm glad you posted. I'm a mum who supports you too (from the UK). That anyone should think that the answer to gun crime is more guns seems incredible and illogical. I hope that the millions of mums - and dads - in your country have their voices heard at last.

Thank you for your post! I live way out in the country and often feel like the only mom who supports increased gun control. Thank you for reaching out!

I think shootings impress us especially in Europe, it's a reality we cannot understand... The world is cruel enough without the "help" of permisive laws. So thanks for marching in our names too, we don't live in your country, but share the same world.
