New School shooting law "Ella's Law"

Due to the numerous school shootings taking place, the current law needs to be changed.  Simply because someone is fortunate enough to survive this horrific crime, the suspect, due to his age, gets less punishment! If someone has enough drive to create such immediate & long term chaos in what is supposed to be a safe place for children & teachers alike, the punishment should fit the crime!  There needs to be harsher laws/punishment for crimes of this nature! This poor girl, Ella Whistler, was shot SEVEN times & suffered numerous consequential injuries including spinal damage, not to mention the mental anguish her & her family will suffer the rest of their lives & the feelings of being safe are forever gone for them & hundreds of other students & teachers that were involved. Ella's teacher, Jason Seaman, was also shot THREE times & was fortunate enough to still tackle this 13 year old whom had TWO GUNS AND A KNIFE!  There is evidence this 13 yr old planned this & has a known history with guns.  Anyone who commits the crime of shooting at any school or any child oriented place of business, needs to be tried as an adult even if the victim/s survive!  The parents of the said suspect should be charged with the same charges as the current law is written for the minor.  Where is the justice for the victims??!!

Petition to Donald Trump

Cease all funding to ICE!

Hello my name is Keith Moore. I am a 19-year old American who is looking to make a difference in this world. I was born in this nation and was raised here my entire life. As I look around this nation I know what makes it so great, its people. It's a fact that this nation was created by immigrants. This nation is not only just a nation of immigrants but a nation of people. These same people who make up our great nation are our doctors, lawyers, teachers & etc. Regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation everyone should be allotted the freedom to pursue the American Dream. As of lately I feel as if our leaders have failed us. We have become some desensitized from reality that we have given up some of our on freedom's & right's in the name of security. ICE was founded in 2003 in a response to the horrendous acts that took place on 9/11. As stated on the official ICE government website, "ICE was granted a unique combination of civil and criminal authorities to better protect national security and strengthen public safety in response to the deadly attacks perpetrated on 9/11. Leveraging those authorities, ICE has become a powerful and sophisticated federal law enforcement agency." Recent times have showed us that this federal agency has not only failed us as Americans but has also failed the rest of the world. In recent reports done by CNN, " The federal government has placed thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children in the homes of sponsors, but last year it couldn't account for nearly 1,500 of them. Steven Wagner, a top official with the Department of Health and Human Services, disclosed the number to a Senate subcommittee last month while discussing the state of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) that oversees the care of unaccompanied immigrant children. Wagner is the acting assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services. ORR is a program of the Administration for Children and Families." This disheartening evidence is intolerable especially coming from this great nation. Ultimately what I would like to accomplish is the cease of all funding to ICE. We can't move forward as a nation until we can have an honest conversation about the Immigration dilemma that we face. I would love to sit down with not only Steven Wagner but President Trump as well and have open dialogue to help correct this injustice that faces this great nation. I'm calling upon not only the American people  but the rest of the world to stand with me to help mend this injustice that confront this great nation. My goal is to obtain 1.5 Million signatures in significance of a thousand signatures for every unaccompanied child.
