Here we are again in America when we must listen to spineless politicians make excuses, offer their thoughts and prayers and blame another tragedy on something or someone without ever mentioning the real issue. That issue, in my view, is the proliferation of assault weapons in this country. I think most Americans would agree with that assessment, yet our elected officials haven't got the guts to even say it, let alone try to do anything about it. I agree that the mental health issue is extremely important but unless something is done to stop the production and sale of the assault style weapons then I think we can expect more of the same.
