Plans over Protests
Today we saw a large group of youths protesting against gun violence. Their pleas were earnest and their intent was focused. Unfortunately, their understanding of the current laws and specific changes that are needed were not there. Any of the marchers could have told you they were protesting assault rifles. But very few could tell you what an assault rifle is.
What was needed was a firm education on what laws are on the books, but not being enforce. What laws do they want and talking to their congressman. Numbers catch the eye but a plan will win the day.
