    We are in the midst of a national health emergency which is costing the lives of our fellow citizens. It is one of the major killers and has been ignored purposefully for years. We are talking about the equivalent of three 9-11's every year. Many if not most of these deaths are preventable but will take courageous leadership.
    What am I talking about? Yes, guns.
    If we do nothing about it, sooner or later you or yours will be in the wrong place at the wrong time...
    It happened to my wife's cousins' son in law. I'm sure you heard about the mass shooting in Minnesota a couple months ago. It has devastated the family.
    It could be you next, at the mall, the movies, in church, at work, at school...
    Is this really how we want to live?
