While our representatives in Congress are wailing about accepting Syrian refugees for fear they might be terrorists and thinking about shutting down the government rather than fund Planned Parenthood, another horrific shooting rampage has taken place ("What the San Bernardino mass shooting says about us," Dec. 3). Our biggest threats are not from overseas and not from clinics that give medical help to mostly poor women. What will it take for the ultra-conservatives to see the world as it is and not how they would like it to be, either according the NRA or their bible? Tragically several lives were lost just days ago at an abortion clinic and now add 14 more precious lives to that list. What is the statistic that will make them wake up and actually do something about what is happening right here in America because there are more guns than people?
