NATIONAL VIGIL • THURS., DEC. 14th #HonorWithAction Victims Of Gun Violence

DECEMBER 12, 2017

Dear CAGV Friends and Supporters:

Under these fiery smoke-filled skies, we send our hopes for you and your family and friends’ safety and well-being. Due to the Thomas Fire and current crisis where immediate attention is focused on family, friends and firefighters working diligently to save our community, CAGV and the Unitarian Society are postponing the scheduled Thursday, December 14th Interfaith Vigil in the Unitarian Society Sanctuary.

Instead, in recognition of the 5th Annual National Vigil for Gun Violence on December 14th and along with communities across the country, we request that you act in solidarity with the Newtown Alliance National Vigil to honor the 20 children and 6 adults lost to gun violence at Sandy Hook Elementary 5 years ago, to the families and lives lost in our own community at the Goleta Post Office and in Isla Vista, and to the 38,000 lives lost in America this year, by lighting a candle on December 14th using words of your faith to remember and honor those who have died in this ongoing public health epidemic of gun violence.


At this time it is also essential we #HonorWithAction those lives lost in our ongoing efforts to #EndGunViolence by calling California Senators Feinstein and Harris to strongly request they oppose H.R. 38, the National Conceal Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (CCR).

Gun Violence Decimates Sutherland Springs, TX 26 People Dead and 20 Wounded

There are no words to express the feelings of shock, grief and loss when someone you cherished is suddenly and meaninglessly wrenched from you forever. Violently taken from life by a gun.

Yet, once again we read of families and a community who have had a loved one torn from them in seconds by gun violence. Too many times have we heard and said our condolences, our heartfelt feelings of compassion, thoughts and prayers. However, can you even imagine the pain of this loss?

Tragically, there are now far too many families and communities who have known such grief. Here in our own community of we have felt the sudden shock that we should never forget, Goleta, Isla Vista, the Han Family and we haven’t had time to breathe from the losses in Las Vegas.

DUTCH’s NRA SPOOF VIDEO

 

The American gun control debate has stretched beyond the country’s borders, with comedians from the Netherlands adding to the debate. A video produced for a comedian’s show there has gone viral, and could actually provide some good arguments for the conversation here at home. Arjen Lubach created an NRA – “Nonsensical Rifle Addiction” – PSA that explains exactly how ludicrous the country’s gun laws seem to people overseas.  The video, by Arjen Lubach of Zondag met Lubach (“Sunday with Lubach”) can be seen here: DUTCH NRA SPOOF
