Remember POW-MIA bracelets. We should start a national campaign

similar to this. The bracelet should have the name of an American who was killed in a mass or random shooting by a gun nut and we could wear them until there are changes made by the US Congress. It might take some of the wind out of the sails of the AR-15 pin wearers.

3. Sadly, we could. But we have to come up with ideas. Something that will

defeat this goddamned mindset of "now is not the time, thoughts & prayers, 2nd amendment." This will make it personal. If you have other suggestions on how to create a groundswell of support for gun control, please share.

5. I don't think much will change until the Right realizes they're just as vulnerable as the rest of us

So they should be encouraged to get out and mingle with ordinary folks wherever they go

7. Well, then don't do anything? Come up with ideas. If you do, post them.

If you are just here to pour water on the idea, go somewhere else.

4. Let's do it.

I wore a POW bracelet as a kid for years. I would gladly wear something to honor a victim.

6. The thing that made POW-MIA bracelets so relatable is that it was tied

to a real person.

11. It always helps to work with a group that's already powerful.

First step I would take is to talk to Shannon Watts/Mothers Demand to see if they're interested in the idea. Or find another anti-gun group who might be, if they're not.

12. Yellow ribbons were also used

To raise awareness. More visible than a bracelet

13. I wore one for years.

I went to the wall in D.C. and got a tracing of his name. Not a bad idea.
