Prior to March 24, 2018, I had never before participated in a march or rally, but it is time to get our legislators in the U.S. to act and protect us instead of being bought and paid for by the NRA gun lobby.

No hunter needs an assault-rifle to kill game. No one needs an assault-rifle to protect their home. There is NO purpose for civilians to have assault-rifles, high capacity magazines or bump stocks.

The March for Our Lives in Los Angeles had ten’s of thousands of participants, and I was one. And there were about a dozen or so counter protesters. They are so, so outnumbered.

When it comes time to vote, use that power to reduce gun violence in our schools, churches, shopping malls, work places, concerts, night clubs, restaurants and city streets.

Thank you.
