omg. I missed that, oof. Yikes.

Spent all of second and third period discussing elections and how Congress works (so convenient that the election fell when we got to the branches of government unit, woo!) We talked all about how the fact that each party has control of half of Congress basically means gridlock for the next two years if politicians don't clean their act up.

Whoops, yeah. I meant to quote the other part of April's post. That is definitely NOT good.

Yet another mass shooting on American soil today. I feel like I see one on the news almost every day now.

Yep, basically.

I woke up to that news. Honestly, the number of shootings in the US is staggering and frankly it boggles my mind how stricter gun laws still haven’t been implemented (though I know that the NRA has a strict rein in that).

NRA lining Republicans’ pockets with cash for votes tbh.

There’s a really bad fire near me, the sky looks like the apocalypse.

I believe it was 12.

We just have non-sensical gun laws in this country. Really, I know the biggest thing is addressing mental health, but why not alter gun laws, too?

Yeah, especially if they are common sense gun laws like stricter safety procedures and increased classes. If you already have a gun, you should be able to pass those classes and background checks anyway. It's not even about regulating which guns you own (unless they are AR-15s, in which case, you don't even need those even if you're on the police force, so...)

Thanks.

Yeah, as someone who lives outside the US the gun laws makes no sense whatsoever and their refusal to do anything is seriously dumb tbh.

My goodness, Amelia, I’m seeing all this wildfire coverage on the news this morning. Are you up near that town called Paradise? My goodness, that looks terrifying. Just wanted to check in again and see if you’re alright.

Yeah, we are really close. Last night was tough, but most of my city isn’t under evacuation order and the winds really calmed down, which really helped. I’ll keep you posted. We have stuff ready to leave if we have to, but I think it’s going away from us now.

Yikes! Stay safe, Amelia.

One of the first responders on the scene was one of the victims. And I read that one of the other victims narrowly avoided another shooting in the past but not this one. Just so heartbreaking.
