Write to your elected officials = Enough is enough!

To my dear customers - a serious note from me this evening:
I want to be able to move about freely - not having to worry about an active shooter on the streets or at the grocery store or at a neighborhood school.
I want to buy books and to sell books and walk along the beach near my house. I know you're frustrated and worried too!
America should be free from the recent terror of gun violence.
I've written letters to my congressman and senators asking them to work on passing laws for necessary background checks and to ban assault rifles - because enough is enough!
Please consider also writing to your elected officials - because we're in this together!
Thank you...
