I was born and grew up in Dayton, Ohio, where nine people were killed and more than two dozen hurt when a gunman with a military-style weapon opened fire over the weekend at a bar.
That attack came just hours after a gunman with an assault weapon killed 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
That’s 31 people killed in a space of 13 hours — 31 innocent lives, their hopes and dreams gone forever — because of gun violence.
This has to stop.
Shooting needs to be off the Olympic program. The guns need to go.
