Dear Everytown for Gun Safety,
Upset and angry about the New Zealand horror, can’t help but thinking about what a bad world example my country, the U.S., sets.
The fact that American ‘gun freedom’ websites like the National Rifle Association are going to tut-tut this horror and try to use to it argue gun control doesn’t make a dif. makes me want to puke.
Canada has its share of right wing crap, but hoping my son chooses and gets into McGill so I and my spouse can move there and I can stop being ashamed of and disgusted by the country I live in.
Sorry to leave the work to you and other good Americans who stay out of choice or because they can’t flee, but I’m coming up on retirement in the next five years or so, and, simply, feel like I’ve fought the good fight long enough.
Enclosed is a small donation to support your commitments to ending the epidemic U.S. gun violence enabled by right wing opposition to common sense gun control.
Largely tied up w/other political commitments, but it’s great your website lists seven different ways normal people can act to say no to gun violence: https://everytown.org/act/
