Mass Shooting, Downtown Louisville - 5 Dead, 6 Injured So Far ...

This sh*t is OUT OF CONTROL!

It's becoming a once-a-week thing!

FYI,  Louisville is about an hour from us here in Lexington - we're central Kentucky, they're Northwestern Kentucky, on the Ohio River, just across from Indiana.

It's getting so that nowhere is safe - our children at school, the bank, the movie theater, concerts, the grocery ...

Did you know that per the New England Journal of Medicine, death by firearms recently became the number one cause of death for children under 18 in America?

Listen, Republicans -  if you truly are the "Party of Life"  - particularly the lives of children - then DO SOMETHING!!!

DO SOMETHING, CONGRESS - ya bunch of cowardly, overpaid NRA and corporate puppets!

(Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, my state's U.S. Senators, I'm especially talking to you!)

There comes a time when we need to use common sense and put our politics aside in favor of public health and safety - that is, if you have any moral compass left at all!


UPDATE The injured toll is now up to 8, and Governor Beshear's close friend was killed and another was hospitalized. 

In fact, he ran his 2015 (Democratic) campaign from the same building. 

Politically motivated or a coincidence???
