On Saturday night I tried going to sleep but could not do so due to my blood boiling because of the mass shooting that took place in El Paso, not even a week after the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting here at home.

This I see the next morning a notification saying that another shooting had taken place in Ohio, just hours after the one in Texas. When is enough enough? When will President Trump and majority leader Mitch McConnell call the Senate back from August recess to address these heinous acts?

We need to hold all presidential candidates to questions on this topic as well.

At the most recent Democratic debates, only five discussed the topic in the first round and during the second round not a single candidate discussed it.

The topic of mass shootings is on the mind of every voter and the public will hold their representatives accountable to do something to make our country safer.

I pray that we reach a brighter future where such horrific acts are no longer seen as a norm to future generations.
