Like all of you, I’m sure, I was sickened and heartbroken by the mass shooting in Las Vegas last weekend that claimed the lives of 58 people. This is most definitely the time to discuss and implement tighter gun control, and it’s also the time to honor those killed. Las Vegas Attack Update: The Ones Who Were Lost

Related: “The N.R.A.’s power is not just about its money or number of supporters or a favorable political map. It has also built something that gun-control advocates lack: an organized base of grass-roots power.” In other words, it’s the relationships and the power of mobilization that sets the NRA and its supporters apart from gun control advocates. — Want Gun Control? Learn From the N.R.A.

    I had a 9th grade bio teacher who slapped me on the butt when I was wearing a mini skirt and alone in the classroom with him once and just about daily put one hand around my shoulder and one hand around the girl who sat next to me’s shoulder then leaned in towards our breasts to talk about his “best students” homework assignments. I mean we were academically good students but looking back it wasn’t meant that way :-/
