At long last some cojones!
Yesterday just before noon a group of Democratic congressmen and women led by Georgia Representative and civil rights leader John Lewis cried "enough already!" and began a 1960's-style sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives to demand a House vote on banning persons on the "no fly" list from buying guns.
21 hours later as I write this they continue to sit in protest.
Because after so many years of believing that the primary concern of every member of Congress was the advancement their own career, I'm suddenly enkindled with a spark of hope that among those we've elected to be our voice there are some who actually care; because those with the power to do something about the lethal epidemic of gun violence raging across our country are - glory hallelujah! - doing something!
