I grew up in rural Vermont with guns (single action or semi-automatic only) around the house, which my dad taught me how to use responsibly and safely, practicing regularly. I understand the practical use and personal attachment to guns-- they make you feel safer, they're tools for hunting, and yeah, they can be fun. But it's ridiculous to continue shrugging responsibility for the disastrous gun laws and industry. Action and common sense is being put off until a more "convenient" time, while in the meantime, people are dying and getting injured at a rate matched by no other developed country. While I'm sad I can't #marchforourlives tomorrow, we need #guncontrolnow.
