Protect our safety

Many politicians continue to pursue the hate-and-fear rhetoric against Muslims citing suicide bombings and atrocities in Europe and other countries where many people are killed every day. They promise to increase security and keep us safe.

These same politicians ignore that more than 80 people are killed in America each day.

Limiting terrorist activities here in the United States is a difficult and costly task. Reducing gun violence takes some simple, sensible and responsible gun laws without violating the Second Amendment.

Politicians are more concerned with not offending the gun lobbyists and maintaining their financial support than about safeguarding our safety.
