A Moment of Silence Won’t Make School Kids Safer.


Saturday, the Florida Senate Republican majority refused to pass any legislation to make school kids safer from guns. However, they did have a moment of silence.  Their silence screams “it’s OK with us when a 19 year old with an AR-15 kills 17 adults and teens – we are OK with the loss of life, injuries and trauma that result.”

Their refusal to act speaks louder than any speech. I’m sure there will be more speeches, thoughts and prayers.  No real doubt – because somewhere, sometime for someone, the slaughter will sadly happen again. No matter how big the body count, the Florida Senate Republican majority along with most current GOP leaders prefer a moment of silence to action.
