  • How Gun Violence Takes a Toll on Our Cities | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    No longer suffice That s why we re here today Not to debate the last mass shooting but to do something to try to prevent the next one This subject can no longer be allowed to be on the back burner In 2015 there were more mass gun shootings than days in the year We have become too desensitized to the horror that is surrounding us It is our job as believers to stand against this violence by upholding ethics morals and the love that our God and his son have taught us Obama s new executive action seeks to require anyone who sells guns to register as a firearms dealer and conduct background checks on buyers In addition he is seeking to expand mental health access in order to reduce the number of guns owned by those who are currently not mentally stable However there has already been pushback Fierce supporters of the Second Amendment the right to bear arms believe that the president is trying to take their guns and rights away from them President Obama has responded by stating Second Amendment rights are important but there are other rights that we care about as well and we have to balance them Because our right to worship freely and safely that right was denied to Christians in Charleston South Carolina And that was denied Jews in Kansas City And that was denied Muslims in Chapel Hill and Sikhs in Oak Creek They have rights too As the debate surrounding gun control continues to heat up it is our moral responsibility both as citizens of this country and as those who believe in the commitment to peace our faith requires to continue pushing on The new executive action is good but the fight is not over yet There still continue to be loopholes These loopholes can however be fixed with the help of individual state governments and officials You can be the difference Become an advocate for gun control today by calling your state representatives and leaders Ask them to call for an end to the rampant gun violence and to support the new executive action They too can help by finding a solution to gun ownership loopholes As a country founded on the ideals of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness it is our job to make sure we are constantly committed to upholding that mission Everyone deserves life and no one deserves to die from an injustice like the misuse of guns Gwen McElhattan is a junior at Creighton University majoring in Social Work and Justice and Peace Studies She hails from River Grove IL a suburb of Chicago At Creighton she is a Student Coordinator for the Schlegel Center for Service and Justice serving on both the communications team and the Ignatian Family Teach In for Justice Core Team Every week she leads a group of Creighton students to the North Omaha Boys Girls Club to tutor and build relationships Her hobbies include service art

    14 years old I was supposed to be an attorney Rodriguez said That was my passion but instead God brought me to POTS for a particular reason and I wanted to make the same change for other families that had been done for my family Now she s the Emergency Food Programs Coordinator in charge of the food kitchen and food pantry Under her careful watch POTS serves 425 to 600 meals per day No one is ever turned away There are no questions asked as they welcome anyone through their open doors The food pantry is set up like a grocery store and families use shopping cards to get nine meals per family member per month The organization doesn t just work to respond to hunger They provide a wide range of services including medical and dental services clothing services legal casework showers and haircuts They pride themselves that they don t have a target population If there s a need in their community they try to answer it It s just nice to see a place that s not only open for all but doesn t push people to what they should be Instead we just let them know that we re here and what s available to them to decide which way they want to go Rodriguez said She recalls the story of one client a homeless man who was also battling drug addiction and mental illness They followed his case carefully for three years and were able to guide him through the process of finding his own apartment But even when he was moved into the apartment he still did not sleep in his new rooms for a year Because of the damage he faced by spending so many years living on the street he actually slept on his apartment building s roof for a whole year Still POTS wasn t ready to give up on him They continued to give him the help he needed until he eventually received the needed benefits and stability to transition into his new housing Now he s fully self sufficient and visits POTS once or twice a year to say hello and to express his gratitude That s just one of the 25 000 people per year that POTS serves a number that includes 8 000 children Amid the holidays Rodriguez is starting to see an increase in generosity On one hand she loves holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas There s a definite increase in donations to their many programs However she wishes that generosity would work throughout the year instead of being limited to the holidays If what happened in November and December would happen all year long there wouldn t be so many people in need We could make a real difference in people s lives Most people report that their children go at least one to two days per month without eating one meal because of the lack of access to food Rodriguez said It s
