Do Nothing Politicians Meaningless "Thoughts and Prayers" After Mass Shootings

I am absolutely sick and tired of these politicians, who do NOTHING about the issue of mass shootings and come out after these terrible mass shootings and state, "our thoughts and prayers...."

IF these politicians actually have thoughts, then they should DO something about this and not JUST talk.

IF these politicians, who are doing NOTHING, then they should hope there is NO God, because IF there is a God, these politicians will be asked the question when they die, "you had the ability to change this and you did NOTHING?!?!" 

The New York Times has the article,

End the Gun Epidemic in America

As stated in this article:

"Opponents of gun control are saying, as they do after every killing, that no law can unfailingly forestall a specific criminal. That is true. They are talking, many with sincerity, about the constitutional challenges to effective gun regulation. Those challenges exist. They point out that determined killers obtained weapons illegally in places like France, England and Norway that have strict gun laws. Yes, they did.

But at least those countries are trying. The United States is not. Worse, politicians abet would-be killers by creating gun markets for them, and voters allow those politicians to keep their jobs. It is past time to stop talking about halting the spread of firearms, and instead to reduce their number drastically — eliminating some large categories of weapons and ammunition."

As a father of a son who stood outside Norris Hall at Virginia Techn where he heard the shootings, it sickens me to see that mass shootings have become the norm in the United States of America....
