Responding to the latest in a long series of bloodletting that the American people across the country have endured, Chris Carson, President of the League of Women Voters of the United States, stated:
I think we all must acknowledge our anger and frustration that this kind of slaughter can continue under the guise of ‘constitutional rights’. But getting past that entirely justifiable outrage, we need to continue to work for legislation that promotes gun safety.
However – we all need to acknowledge that this is really about Voting Rights. Unless all American citizens can vote, we are not going to get past this. Until barriers to voting are eliminated – Voter ID, restrictive registration requirements, gerrymandering – are eliminated, we can’t pass legislation that will make a difference. It all comes back to the vote.
