  •  The White House petition (9+ / 0-)

    is currently at 103,017.

    That's the one everyone should sign.

    I wrote my Senator, too, asking her to take a strong stand in favor of legislation that limits access to guns.  I recommend everyone else on this site do the same.

    •  Obama has been out front (0+ / 0-)

      in the immediate aftermath of these events and reminded us that action needs to be taken, almost without fail on the first couple days part of it, and in that he's done more to speak out on this than any other public official.  To expect him to quarterback this fulltime from goalpost to goalpost is not realistic, nor is it fair to the man or his politics. You have to remember the NRA is even more white wing than the republican party, and some of their more extreme members have been the most vocal and forgive me, racist, in their attacks.
      It is up to every activist to join with every other activist and make this a movement, coordinating leaders from as many victims' groups and law enforcement groups and teachers' unions and mayors' coalitions - well, you get the idea.
      Leadership has to swell up from the communities themselves. that kind of leadership will have the most enduring and potent effect...
