Opinion: Elected officials need to do the right thing, protect people

I am so sick of all the arguing every day about what to do or what we can do. I don't care if you are a Republican, Independent or Democrat, you need to stop acting like a child and do something to protect a child.

The Second Amendment protects gun owners; anyone who wants one can have one. And anyone who hunts should be able to hunt. When is there going to be a law to protect the children?

We need to stop all the fighting and think about the children and the people.

We are the best country in the world. People should not have to be afraid to go to the mall, grocery store or games. And kids shouldn't be afraid to go to school, yet they are. I don't care if you are white, black, brown, Indian, Muslim or Mexican. God put everyone on this Earth, and we are the color he made us. No one else made us.

Everyone doesn't like the same people or the same thing. We have different opinions and different values, but we all care about "family." So do the right thing to protect the people and children.

Stop the fighting. Do your job or get out. You were voted for the by people to do a job for the people. Not to go along with your party if you don't think it's right.

2020 will be one of the most important elections. Everyone needs to vote.
