My grandson enlisted in the military in Virginia, then went to stay with his brother in Florida until time to leave for Basic Training.
At the last minute he lost his slot. As retired Army, my guess was it was over which recruiting office would get the credit for the enlistment. I don't know if I was right, because it didn't make any difference.
I made a call then went to Lowes where my grandson was working. I told him I needed him to go on line and write a letter saying he wanted to go to basic Monday, and he's be off. He said he didn't want everyone to know his grandmother used her influence to get him in the military. I told him no one would know.
Yes, I have a lot of influence. Clout is another word for it. I'm a registered voter. I learned a long time ago that USA Congressmen work for us.
This time I need help. If you are already a registered voter, pick up the phone or go on line and call your congressman.
If you aren't registered go to the courthouse and spend ten minutes of your time registering to vote. After that it's easy, they will assign you to a voting poll in your neighborhood.
Here's what I want; 1. Ban all assault weapons, only allow them to be sold to law enforcement or military. 2. Put metal detectors in the front of every school with 2 armed police or security guard in the morning then one for the remainder of the day. 3. Make all other doors exit only. Put up cameras to see if someone tries holding the door open for another person.
This isn't hard and it makes sense. Please, contact every elected official and let them know if they want your vote they have to do this. NRA and gun manufactures won't give them a dime if they are voted out of office.
If you want to be as important as me, register to vote, then vote.

DAVID HOGG isn't old enough to vote, but another birthday will fix that. My only regret is if he remains in politics, I won't live until he's old enough to run for President
David and his friends are making waves in South Florida, George Clooney and Oprah have sent him money to fight his cause.
Trump wants to arm teachers. He said if a teacher had a gun they would have ended the kid killing people before he knew what happened. Turn Off the TV Mr. Trump, it doesn't happen that way in real life.
I'm going to tell you what I want. I am hoping this email reaches David and Oprah. She has the money and the sway to do anything.
Ban assault weapons. Sell them only to law enforcement and military. The gun manufactures shouldn't get too upset about that when the alternate choices are worse.
Metal detectors at school entrances, with two armed police or security guards monitoring in the mornings. One should be able to handle it the rest of the day
Make all other doors exit only. Cameras installed to monitor those doors, in case someone comes up with a plan to enter.
I hate the idea of being forced to take such measures, but this is the cheapest way to fix the
problem. It needs to be done now. The NRA and gun manufactures depend on time allowing people to forget, and return to business as usual. Until the next time. Americans need to hit our congressmen hard. Call. Email, or any other measure to tell them how you feel.
If you agree with what I've said, tell them do it or lose your vote. That's how you fire a congressman.
Someone told me they voted for Trump because they believed Hillary was pro late term abortion. The only one I heard say that was Trump. The man who looks the American people in the eye and lies to us. Think about losing a baby to an abortion, then think about losing a teenager to an idiot with a gun.
Do what you can. March, contact your congressman. I'm too old to be marching around. I write, so that's what I'm going to do until someone pays attention.
My fellow Americans, we are not supposed to do what our elected officials tell us, they are elected to do what we tell them. Don't let this thing die. They have had their way because we have been complacent.
DO SOMETHING NOW NOT TOMORROW
