Kapler wrote on his blog:

“We stand in honor of a country where we elect representatives to serve us to carefully consider and enact laws that will protect the interests of all people in this country and move this country towards the vision of the ‘shining city on the hill “ advance .”

“But instead, we mindlessly combine our moment of silence and sadness with equally mindless celebration for a country that refuses to embrace the concept of controlling the sale of weapons used almost exclusively for the mass slaughter of people.”

“We have our moment (again and again), and then we move on without demanding real change from the people we empower to make those changes.”

“We stand up, we bow our heads, and the people in power take a break and celebrate their own patriotism at every turn.”
