Enough is Enough

We live in historic times.

I never imagined I would see a filibuster such as the one by Senator Murphy.

I never imagined a sit-in, led by a civil rights icon such as John Lewis, on the floor of the House of Representatives, with representatives singing "We Shall Overcome".

It's a story that knocked Donald Trump off the front page.

But the American people have had enough.

Enough of gun violence. Enough of a dysfunctional and divisive Congress. Enough of the NRA running our government, of policies opposed by 90% of the voting public.

It's time for sensible gun regulations. It's time to stop the carnage. It's time to catch up with the rest of the civilized world.

I do not envy Paul Ryan. He cannot win this battle.

Now that the sit in is over, will they keep the momentum going, or am I just feeling cynical? Will someone finally be doing something? As someone who passes the site of one of the top U.S. mass shootings five days a week, I can only say "It's past time."

I read on Facebook -- I've forgotten the source -- how this wasn't about July, it was about taking back the House in November
