“We need our kids to hear us speak up about the risks guns pose to our communities, and against a status quo that doesnt make sense,” President Obama intoned in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub massacre. “They need to hear us say these things even when those who disagree are loud and are powerful.” Roger that! I told my daughter that the nightclub’s owners left their customers defenseless against a not-unforseeable attack. That they should have kept a shotgun behind the bar, that their customers were happy (and stupid) to surrender their security to an off-duty police officer who ran from the sound of gunfire, and that the Orlando SWAT team should have gone in at the earliest opportunity (to save people busy bleeding out). My daughter rolled her eyes; she’s heard it all before. What did you tell your kids and how did they react?
