In the wake of the Parkland shootings

Today I have become something I never thought I would: a single-issue voter. I will never vote for a candidate that doesn’t support strict gun control legislation, even if that means withholding my vote.

As an atheist, I don’t usually use this word, but anyone who supports our current gun laws or advocates for looser ones is evil. It’s hard to walk back that word, but I’ve had enough of school shootings and a hyper-armed society.

You’re not free if you fear for your child’s life or your own. We share our freedom in our public spaces. Once your freedom impinges upon mine, it’s gone too far.

The best solution to mass shootings and gun violence is to restrict personal firearms and ammo. Period.
