From Lauren's email to me:

Dear friends,

Next week I'll go back to poking fun at politics (and there's certainly no shortage of material, on a daily basis lately!), but right now I'm too angry to be funny, and while a song won't change any minds or policies, it's what I felt compelled to say.

From YouTube:

How many more mass shootings do we need before we come to our senses about gun control?

From the song:

Your silence mocks the victims when there are laws you could enact so no more prayers except the prayer to act.

Will THIS be the tragedy that convinces all those idiots who oppose reasonable gun control? Probably not
