Parents of victims in California bar shooting do not want your “thoughts and prayers,” they want gun laws.

“I don’t want prayers. I don’t want thoughts. I want gun control,” Susan Orfanos said on local TV.

“And I hope to God nobody else sends me any more prayers,” she said, vigorously shaking her head. She emphasized each word, demanding: “No more guns.”

Whether anyone will listen, her husband said, the victim’s parents know that’s hardly certain.

“If mowing down 5-year-olds at Sandy Hook didn’t make an impression, nothing will,” said Orfanos, a semiretired substitute teacher. “The bottom line is the NRA owns most of the Republican Party, and probably some of the Democratic Party as well. Until that vise is broken, this is not going to end.” (The NRA gave financial backing to a handful of Democratic congressmen this cycle, according to the Center for Responsible Politics, a nonpartisan research group.)

There was hardly a groundswell of new support on Thursday for action to restrict access to firearms. The debate unfolded along familiar lines, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) vowed to fight for “bipartisan, commonsense solutions to prevent gun violence.”

Everytown for Gun Safety, founded and financed by former New York mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, urged “common-sense, strategic actions” to reduce gun violence. Gabrielle Giffords, the former Democratic congresswoman from Arizona who was shot in 2011, said she was “heartbroken, angry, and never going to accept this as normal.”

I literally do not know how anything is going to change on this subject. 

I used to have hope, but time and time again, heartbreaking tragedy after heartbreaking tragedy, nothing moves forward to protect us from gun violence. 

Of course, I think the first step toward making some progress is to replace as many NRA backed Republicans as possible, with NRA money rejecting Democrats.

    I hope people stop vacationing in the US. I do. It is not safe to be in public.
    There is a part of me that considers that all these white men ex military killers are parts of an mk ultra like program. Massacres are orchestrated to distract and divide us. If these attacka were happening by furriners…we’d know evrything about their backgrounds ad infinitum. We know next to nothing about the whites who are the killers. I find that odd.

      Nothing mysterious about the backgrounds.

      Angry white men with: domestic violence histories, alcohol/drug histories, gun fetishes, and etc.

    Reinstate ban on all assault weapons, stop all gun shows and yard sale guns in ALL states. NO open carry, NO concealed weapons. Stop it all. The NRA must be dissolved for taking part in harming America, for funneling money from Russia mob and associating and with peddling FAKE and dangerous propaganda. There is nothing good about TREASON AND ESPIONAGE AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Americans must DEMAND ACTION NOW TODAY. Force the buy back of assault weapons, reinstate the ban, remove them from society in ALL states. Guns are for personal home protection, hunting and target competition only. Help law enforcement do their job. Help USA citizens and kids be safe.
