Congress is broken. In a democracy, it's up to us to fix it.
The answer to gun violence in schools is not to put more guns in schools, as the NRA and Congressman Bill Huizenga suggest. "In homes with guns, the homicide of a household member is almost three times more likely to occur than in homes without guns" (www.justfacts.com/guncontrol.asp#ownership). The same is likely to be true of guns in schools.
Bill Huizenga is opposed to all gun control. We don't need more killings like the children at Sandy Hook. We have more than 30,000 gun deaths and 70,000 gun injuries each year in the U.S. Are we at war with ourselves? That's more deaths than in Iraq and Afghanistan together!
We need to vote Bill Huizenga out of office to do our share to fix Congress and make it responsive to the will of the people.
