March for Lives

Mar 07, 2018

To the Editor:

The members of the Great Bay Democratic Club, who meet in Little Egg Harbor, wish to make it publicly known that we support the March For Our Lives movement and their platform demanding comprehensive and effective legislation to address gun violence and the needless epidemic of mass shootings in the U.S.

We believe that students and the general public have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness absent the fear that they will be slaughtered by a mad person who had little to no difficulty obtaining an assault-style rifle, a rifle whose sole purpose is to be used by military personnel engaged in combat.

The members of the Great Bay Democratic Club are appalled and saddened by the staggering number of lives lost due to needless gun violence and plan to stand with the March For Our Lives movement in Asbury Park, as well as in New York City and Washington, D.C., on March 24, when we take to the streets to demand that effective legislation be enacted swiftly and prior to any further loss of lives.

Earl C. Lewis, member

Great Bay Democratic Club
