Go Get 'em, Hillary!

 It's about time someone stood up to the gun supporters in this country. How many more young people and children have to die before our government puts a stop to it? Check out this piece from the First Draft at the NY Times:

Mrs. Clinton’s remarks followed a similarly forceful address Thursday by President Obama, who lamented that mass shootings like the one earlier that day at a community college in Roseburg, Ore. — and the responses to them — have become routine.
