Tragic news out of Tennesee

Gun Violence is National Epidemic.

Yesterday the 517th mass shooting of 2021 took place in a Kroger Grocery Store in Tennessee. One person was murdered and thirteen others were shot. The shooter took their own life and police continue to investigate the motive. The time for federal laws that protect all Americans is now. Tell your Senators to support a national assault weapon ban.
