Kirste and Dan wanted to discuss the devastating news, that 19 children and 2 adults were massacred at an elementary school in Texas. 

The 18-year-old gunman, Salvador Ramos, shot his own grandmother and fled the scene. He crashed his car near Robb Elementary School, then barricaded himself inside a classroom and was ‘shooting at anyone in his way’. Police broke windows in an effort to help as many students and teachers inside escape. The shooter was eventually killed by law enforcement.

We are just 145 days into 2022 and there have already been 212 mass shootings. Despite over 90% of Americans wanting change to gun laws, it has yet to pass the Senate. Senator Chris Murphy urged his colleagues to pass the legislation and finally bring and end to Americas gun violence. “But I’m here on this floor to beg to literally get down on my hands and knees and beg my colleagues.” 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the children and families affected. Let us know your thoughts by texting or messaging us on socials. Listen to the full chat below.
