Coming from a Native American Matriarchal Society, I stand humbly behind, while getting out of the way of our Women, the LGBTQ people, all bullied people and now I am proud to stand behind our Children and ‘Young Adults’ and offer any help, if needed, that comes to mind in their quest to learn in safety!
Senator Marco Rubio,
even I a nobody,
can quote the bible,
to anything you say each day.
Point being, can we walk in his sandals each day?
Puerto Rico is a (110mi by (40mi) island.
It is always windy, sunny and warm.
Because it is an island, water is everywhere, salt and fresh.
Puritans make trash, sewer, heat/cool their building and power their island, right?
Why not do so with ‘Alternative Energy Systems’?
Build everything possible under or close to the ground for obvious reasons.
Petroleum products fuel transportation, electricity generation, and industry in Puerto Rico, supplying three-fourths of the energy consumed in the commonwealth.
In 2016, 47% of Puerto Rico’s electricity came from petroleum,
34% from natural gas,
17% from coal,
2% from renewable energy.

US Mass Shootings, 1982-2018: Data From Mother Jones’ Investigation
The full data set from our in-depth investigation into mass shootings.
Mark Follman, Gavin Aronsen and Deanna PanUpdated: Feb. 14, 2018
Mass Public Shootings per Decade
1900s : 0
2010s (three years): 14
Duwe says that 2012 was certainly a horrific year, but it is too early to tell if it signals an ominous trend. The worst year for public shootings was in 1991, when eight incidents took place, he said. With seven incidents, 2012 ranks second, along with 1999 – when the assault ban was in effect. (Duwe says his research shows that assault weapons are used in a relatively small number of cases, but they do result in far more wounded victims)

Thank you my paper,

Flagler Newspaper speaks
Florida Was Eyeing Fast-Tracking Concealed Weapon Licenses Without Background Checks
A proposal that would allow some concealed-weapons license applications to be approved when background checks have not been completed was put on hold Thursday because of the deadly high-school shooting in Broward County.
The Senate Appropriations Committee had been scheduled to take up the proposal as part of a wide-ranging bill (SB 740) involving the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
A similar measure in the House (HB 553) awaits a floor hearing.
Kate Kile, the Tallahassee leader of the gun-violence prevention group Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America,
she wasn’t surprised by the postponement, noting the negative attention that could have come after a gunman killed 17 people Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
Daily Commercial Our Opinion:
Time for our elected leaders to be in the crosshairs for a change
What can we do?
We can start by holding them accountable. Not Congress and not the Florida Legislature, but each individual member
— Republican and Democrat alike. Demand action. Don’t settle for double talk. Vote out those who refuse to commit to solutions. Vote in those who do.
Here they are, your elected representatives for Lake and Sumter:
Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson; U.S. Reps. Daniel Webster, Ron DeSantis and Dennis Ross; Florida Sens. Dennis Baxley and Kelli Stargell; and Florida House members Larry Metz and Jennifer Sullivan.
And we’ll be there with you. The Daily Commercial will corner these people, demand that they explain their inaction, insist that they articulate their specific solutions and publish their responses on this page, in this space.
It is their time in the crosshairs so that our children, our fathers, our mothers, our brothers and sisters don’t have to spend another moment there.

Please remember that this young lady was in a school room, while a killer was shooting thousands of bullets in a matter of minutes, just to kill her and her classmates!
I spent most of my military wondering if I would ever come home from the war or come home in one piece!
While on the outside and working on a boiler in a bank, I faced a scared security guard while looking at the barrel of a duel shot gun.
Never the less, I still cannot even come close to imagining what these young students had to go through and I pray I never will!

Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’t
Julia Kemple started this petition to Representative Fred Upton and 6 others
“Adults have failed us. Everyday, we students walk into school with the promise of an education without threat of violence. However, it has become increasingly clear that hallways of schools across America are no longer a guaranteed safe haven. Whether it’s an elementary school in small-town Connecticut or a high school in Florida, it’s become apparent that school shootings are becoming an expected part of American life. Since 2013, there have been 291 school shootings, with 18 of them happening in 2018 alone. We simply ask how many shootings will it take, how many innocent children have to die, until adults decide we, as our nation’s children, are more important than our nation’s guns. Therefore, we ask our fellow students to take it upon ourselves to stand up as our adults remain sitting. We demand change.
While most students cannot vote, we are not voiceless to our society. There are about 56 million K through 12 students in the United States. If we mobilize this population — by signing petitions, contacting lawmakers, and utilizing social media — we can make our presence felt. Ultimately, our goal is to pressure lawmakers to make comprehensive and responsible gun control policy to keep our schools and society safe.
It’s not a matter of if anymore, it’s a matter of when we will be affected.
Students For Gun Legislation”
