Gun Control

Gun Violence has become a Health Crisis in Miami-Dade County and the Nation.  As an Advocate for All Our Constitutional Rights including the 2nd Amendment, Responsible Gun Ownership and Common-Sense Regulations is Not Only the Right Position but it is the Most Compassionate Position.

Weapons of War and Firearm Open Carry Should Never Be Allowed on Our Streets or in our Communities.

If you own a gun, please remember to always always practice gun safety.

Firearms Safety Rules

Always Always treat every firearm as if it’s LOADED.

Always Always keep the gun’s muzzle pointed in a safe direction

Always Always keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire

Always Always know where your firearm’s muzzle is pointed, who is behind your target and who is in proximity

Firearm Storage

Use a firearm safety lock and store gun unloaded in a locked compartment not accessible to children and keep ammunition locked in a separate location away from the gun that is also not accessible by children.

Hate Crimes

Extremism, White-Supremacy, Anti-Semitic, Racism, among others have reached epidemic levels in the nation.  Florida is one of the highest in the country that harbors white supremacist.

Department of Justice defines hate crime as: “A crime motivated by bias against race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.  A crime + motivation for committing the crime based on biased = Hate Crime.”

We must have zero tolerance for this horrific criminal belief and action.

Sexual Harassment

This issue requires extensive discussion more than I’m able to include in this form. Therefore, I’m only going to provide the definitions and contact information. However, the most important thing I can state is that if you believe you are in any of these situations, please speak up and seek help.

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as: “Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.”

Sexual Assault/Rape

These issues require extensive discussion more than I’m able to include in this form. Therefore, I’m going to provide the definitions and contact information. However, the most important thing I can state regarding this issue is to please speak up and seek help.

USDHHS, Office on Women’s Health defines sexual assault: “as any type of sexual activity or contact that you do not consent to. Sexual assault can happen through physical force or threats of force or if the attacker gave the victim drugs or alcohol as part of the assault. Sexual assault includes rape and sexual coercion. In the United States, one in three women has experienced some type of sexual violence.  If you have been sexually assaulted, it is not your fault, regardless of the circumstances.”

Law Enforcement agencies provide the following advice:

Call 911 as soon as possible. Your safety is of the upmost priority, make sure you are first in a safe environment.

  • Don’t wash or clean your body.  

  • Don’t brush, comb, or clean any part of your body, including your teeth.

  • Don’t change clothes.

  • Don’t touch or change anything at the scene of the assault.

If you think you have been drugged, talk to the hospital staff about testing for date rape drugs.

Woke vs. Sleep

Words absolutely matter!  However, sometimes the definition of words is even more important.  The usage of a word that inflames and misleads is irresponsible and dangerous.  We have seen the consequences of how the spoken words used by individuals sparked dangerous results by individuals who took those words to extremes.  

We the public must do our due diligence to fact-check anyone who might have an ulterior motive to misuse or mislead by using certain words or verbiage.  We have a responsibility to do proper research and make sure we understand the correct meaning.  It would be irresponsible to parrot those individuals without first verifying the verbiage and making sure we know the correct meaning.   We must require those individuals to address the definition and how it applies to their statement.  We should never be afraid to speak truth to power if any of us believe the word or statement is being used to just inflame or mislead. 

Webster’s dictionary defines woke and sleep as:

Woke: ” chiefly US slang,: aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice), past tense and past participle of WAKE”

Sleep:  ” 1: the natural, easily reversible periodic state of many living things that are marked by the absence of wakefulness and by the loss of consciousness of one’s surroundings, is accompanied by a typical body posture (such as lying down with the eyes closed), the occurrence of dreaming, and changes in brain activity and physiological functioning is made up of cycles of non-REM sleep and REM sleep and is usually considered essential to the restoration and recovery of vital bodily and mental functions

A state resembling sleep: such as a : 

  1. state of torpid inactivity

  2. DEATH put a pet cat to sleep also: TRANCE, COMA

  3. the closing of leaves or petals especially at night

  4. A state marked by a diminution of feeling followed by tingling my foot’s gone to sleep : the state of an animal during hibernation
