I never thought I would be writing a political post on my blog. Then again, I never thought I would see something as horrible as what happened last Friday in Newtown, Connecticut. It made me feel better to do something so I thought I would share with you all how to do the same.

In light of the recent tragic events in Newtown and those that happen around the rest of the United States everyday, I feel it necessary to write to you to implore you to support new gun control laws.

Going forward my vote, my voice, and my resources will only support candidates who also back gun control legislation.

Honestly, it could not have been any simpler. It takes less than 5 minutes. Surely we can each spare just 5 minutes today.
It's a small step in the right direction.
