Before our own safety.
Let's talk a little bit about what's happened these few weeks:
Everywhere you look, the news has been about our children not being protected.
With the multiple school shootings.
With the public education system.
With the danger of childhood obesity.
The public is demanding our children's safety. And what has our current government been doing about it?
School violence is skyrocketing. As a country, we thought after Columbine, this would never happen again. It's 10 years later. Republicans have controlled Washington this entire time, and have had 10 years to get something done. My opponent, incumbent Roy Blunt, has been one of the top 3 Republicans in Congress these past 10 years.
And are our schools safer?
