When Silence Is Not Golden

Yesterday, on the floor of the House, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) asked for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the horrific massacre in San Bernardino. That’s nice, congressman, bit it’s a hollow gesture, especially  when you remain silent on the epidemic of gun violence that’s afflicting our nation: 351 so far this year, according to the Washington Post. More than one each day. But the GOP insists there’s nothing they can do, more interested in stirring up fear about immigration and refugees than the real obscenity– the couple allegedly responsible for yesterday’s tragedy bought their military-grade assault weapons legally.
