Richmond Gun Rally: Thousands Of Gun Owners Converge On Virginia Capitol On MLK Day

Let’s be clear as to who promotes easy and unrestricted access to guns: “Vendors also descended on the city, setting up tables and portable racks to sell pro-Trump T-shirts and pro-gun paraphernalia.” The United States has come a long way since 1776. Laws have been established and resources have been given to enforce laws that PROTECT THE SAFETY of law-abiding citizens. Electoral laws, not armed people determine the future of presidents in the United States, not violence, rioting, and insurrection.

Only in the United States: Gun violence, as of 2018- “It is the leading cause of premature death in the US—killing more than 38,000 people and causing 85,000 injuries each year. What’s more, this a problem unique to the US. Researchers analyzed 11 countries over 14 years and the United States has had more mass shootings than the other 10 nations combined.” (https://centerforhealthprogress.org/blog/patterns-of-gun-violence/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAvJXxBRCeARIsAMSkAprAPoC–dgW0fG2KXUXZ-AqenvmRemzhjZg_Fs-Fmo-Bc5W6g_V22YaAuOgEALw_wcB)

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
