A Georgia girl was killed in an apparently accidental shooting that also wounded her mother.
Marsha Lynch said she was braiding her daughter’s hair when a handgun fell to the floor and fired, striking her in the leg and then shooting her 8-year-old daughter in the head.
Sharia Lynch died from the gunshot wound before she could be airlifted to an area hospital.
Not a day goes by where some child is not killed by a gun in this country.
And yet every single one of these weapons were undoubtedly purchased because their owners believed that having them would be them and their loved ones safe.
That is the mindset created by the NRA and its supporters, and that is the mindset which needs to be changed before we can take the important steps necessary to protect the lives of our children.
This has gone on fucking long enough, and the time for change is now.
