President Barack Obama made it very clear during 2015 that he was sickened by so many national tragedies involving mass shootings that he’s fought for and received the go-ahead to take action himself on stricter gun control issues.

Our country is based on the principles of freedom of religion and tolerance for all. A few hate-filled Jihadist terrorists who have perverted the meaning of Islam must not make us turn against millions of patriotic and peaceful Muslims.
If we give in to hate and discrimination ourselves, then murderous San Bernardino shooters, Tashfeen Malik and Syed Farook, will have won. ISIL and its death-worshipping adherents are desperate to create a dangerous divide between Muslims and everyone else in the world. That would be their apocalyptic dream. They want endless bloodshed and worldwide war.
