I hope that the NRA and their hired guns, like Marsha Blackburn, get to see this first person testimony, from a mother who just lost her son.
“I hope to God no one sends me anymore prayers. I want gun control. No more guns!”
The mother of shooting victim Telemachus Orfanos. She says her son survived the Las Vegas mass shooting but was killed in Thousand Oaks.

Another massacre, yet too many politicians throw up their hands and offer "thoughts and prayers." What if instead of mass shooting the headlines read Ebola? Food Outbreak? Airplane Malfunction? Terrorist Plot? Then would we act on what's clearly a public health crisis?

Definition of a mass shooting is more than four victims. There have been 307 mass shootings this year, today is day 311. So far there have been only four days this year there has not been a mass shooting.
