How many more times will our Colorado senators stand together for a “renaming” ceremony for Colorado mountain peaks while children are being slaughtered in schools? How many more times will our distinguished senators Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner and our distinguished representative Jared Polis say they stand with the latest victims of a massacre? How many more times will they say their prayers are with the victims?
It is too late for your prayers. Save your prayers for yourself. We are burying these precious souls because we have elected officials who have blood on their hands. These children‘s lives have been shortened because we have gutless officials who refuse to take a stand. We have children lying in hospital beds because members of Congress say there is nothing we can do to prevent these massacres. The idea of arming teachers fell flat on its face. Do we want to have every assistant principal armed with an AK-47 greeting the pupils at the bulletproof door? Do we want to start arming our bilingual, underpaid kitchen staff with Glocks? I ask you, Michael, Cory, Jared? How many more times?
