Politicians Need to Legislate More and Pray Less to Solve The Gun Violence Problem in America
To promote the general welfare, members of Congress have the power to craft laws, pass them and send them to the president for his or her signature.

The mass shooting at a community college in Oregon gave us this same rote reaction.
Prayers for the victims, families, students, & faculty at Umpqua Community College, & the community of Roseburg, Oregon.
