Moment for action, not moment of silence

During a recent Moment of Silence observed by the Congress in response to the church massacre in Texas, Rep. Ted Lieu of California walked out, with the observation that there had been too many Moments of Silence with no action to prevent future such occurrences. He is to be commended for this proclamation. These Moments of Silence have evolved into Years of Silence by our federal government with no action to limit the availability of assault rifles or close background check loopholes.

"Thoughts and Prayers" become meaningless words without the thinking leading to positive action. The Second Amendment was never designed to allow civilians to possess military level weaponry. Demand government action.
