Make MARCH 24th the biggest March ever on Washington. By Geniusofdespair

Do you really want change on guns well now is the time. We have this small window of opportunity: The March in Washington on the 24th. Sponsor a kid, help rent a bus, go yourself. Local marches are fine but there has to be one mega, killer march. If you really believe -- you can make it happen. It is an easy round trip in one day. I did it for the women's march last year. Can't afford it, give a young one $5 towards their trip.

Do it right, don't be lazy and say, I will just march here. That is a last resort. Good, but not good enough. Get to Washington! Get your kids to Washington. Make reservations now before the prices spike. Look for bus rides. I reserved a one bedroom suite, it cost $239. Just to have it. Can fit a lot of people.


Remember it wasn't the New York, Chicago, Miami, Boston Tea Party. One Place = most impact.

We need to build on this issue to include republicans, gun owners, young, old, etc. without a diverse group nothing will happen

I can't go. I work in a hospital and I work that day. Let me know how to sponsor a rider.
We went to last year's Climate March and will do the March for Science or the Climate March in DC again.

Oh, and you can stay with the Quakers for $50 a night. Their place is close enough to walk to the Mall to march.

Once everyone understands that the republicans are concerned only about money and care nothing about these children's lives, the sooner we can begin to plan for ultimate solutions. This group of blood money legislators must be removed.

I'll be marching here. A march in your own city connects you with like-minded individuals in your own neighborhood. The Women's March in Washington was inspiring, but the one here in Miami, that had twice the expected attendance, showed me that Miami is full of people that are as concerned as I am over our future. So, we have a choice. It doesn't matter where you march just as long as you do.

As kids we never had to worry about being killed at school. It was a safe place, a place for learning, having fun, interacting with others, and generally a great place to be. We now have a generation of kids who have been doing 'active shooter drills' since kindergarten. What is the impact on the psyche of a child who knows any day they go to school could be the last day of their life? That this day may be the day that their school could be a killing field, and they could easily be gunned down? How do they process all of this?

Money is better spend paying a lobbyist. I believe one or two groups have formed that can hire a lobbyist to compete against the NRA. You'd have to double the amount or at least price match what the NRA gives campaigns.

Well, let's talk money. The NRA says it pays out about $5.2 million per year to lobbyists. What would be the value of a life taken by these weapons of war? If these children were allowed to grow and contribute to their families and the American economy over a lifetime, what would be their value be? $1 million each, $2 million, what? No matter how you look at the lobbying money that controls legislators, it is peanuts compared to the loss of a life. No amount of money is worth the lives of all these children. Beyond the children who are actually killed, a whole generation of people have lived in fear of being gunned down at school. I have no idea what that does to their worldview, as I have never lived with the fear of death everyday I went to school. To go to school everyday in fear for your life, and then to have it played out right in front of your eyes with blood, brains and intestines of your classmates scattered over the desks and floor, and you may be next, is a lot to experience. The damage done to this generation is beyond any amount of money you can come up with. It must stop.

Sometimes humor, even politically incorrect humor can hit the nail on the head:
