Singer Tiffany Evans and daughter Adalia,2 months, smile for the camera. Like many of us, Tiffany was horrified to learn that a crazed gunman went on a shooting rampage at a Connecticut elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut this morning. 27 people, at least 18 of them children, are dead.
Tiffany writes on her Twitter page, “As a Mother,I cant even imagine the inconsolable state that these families are in. Lord please give them strength and comfort In Jesus name. I cried off of this news. Everyone please get your hearts right with God. No more playing around. We are clearly getting closer to the end.”
Celebrity mom Reagan Gomez-Turrentine, who has a daughter named Scarlett in kindergarten, echoes Tiffany’s sentiments and wants something to be done about gun laws in America. “Just got back from a parent-teacher meeting at Scarlett’s Kindergarten. Gave Scarlett a kiss & left. Now to hear this. My God. 40% of the guns sold in the US are sold online, with no background checks. Like you can get medications online with no Dr’s prescription, you can get guns.”
“I can’t today. I can’t. A whole, kindergarten class is “missing”. Scarlett is in Kindergarten. Am I taking it personal? [You are] right I am. Can we talk about gun laws NOW? This is mass shooting number ____ this year. Children. Gun violence in urban areas is insane. Can we talk NOW?”
Do you agree with Reagan? Is it time to do something about gun control?
