The lively energetic voices of the children - the Republic's future, rang out yesterday in an explicit message to aging adult lawmakers to enact new controls to combat the prevalence of guns in the United States (US).
From the east coast to the west coast and from cities to suburban towns, hundreds of thousands of American school children walked out of classes yesterday at 10:00 a.m., in protest of the absence of stricter gun control laws and in memory of 17 people, including 14 children, massacred at a high school in Florida, a month-ago.
Demanding that their voices be heard and that their futures become more secured from the assault of gun violence, America's children have called upon lawmakers to enact stricter gun control laws.
Today, as the voices of the children become temporarily muted as their return to classes, the question remains as to whether or not the Republican controlled Congress will act to limit the prevalence of guns. More than likely, Republicans will not go against the favor of the deep-pocket lobbying arm of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and bestow greater gun controls that would appease the children of America.
Therefore, children of voting age (18), who are demanding a change to gun laws, should ensure that they and all their classmates do register and do vote for a Democrat Congress in the upcoming Fall mid-term elections. Moreover, their classmates, who are not of voting-age, should implore upon their parents and all their relatives to vote-out of office all lawmakers resisting changes to gun laws.
The children have spoken signaling that time's up for gun control action and in lieu of any enactment by the present Republican Congress, the children should exercise their democratic choices and elect a new Congress in November.
