This iReport is part of an assignment:
Navy Yard shooting
I'm flipping through the news channels while scanning the internet for any information on this incident that I can find. I'm listening to talking heads talking about things that they don't understand.
All I see is mass media jumping over each other to report the latest rumor the second it's uttered by someone or spotted on twitter. Legislators speaking without caution or full knowledge of the incident and yet, using this incident as a battle cry to renew a cry for something that the American people have denounced time and time again.
We will certainly see it more and more no matter what. A select few telling the rest of us that they know what is best for the people. The same select few who demanded an exemption for a train wreck of a health care law as we, the people, suffer reduced hours and higher costs in yet another market the government seeks to control.
One day, I hope, that my nation... my people, find it within themselves to tell those who presume to dictate our daily lives that they do not in fact speak for us anymore. Just as the good citizens in Colorado have done.
Be mindful Congress. Remember; You work for us.
