We will not offer a “Black Friday Sale”
Black Friday is a colloquial term for the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States.
Many stores offer highly promoted sales at discounted prices and often open early, sometimes as early as midnight or even on Thanksgiving. Some stores’ sales continue to Monday (“Cyber Monday“) or for a week (“Cyber Week“).
Occurring on the fourth Friday in November unless November 1 is a Friday (in which case it’s the fifth Friday), Black Friday has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States since 2005.
The reason we are not offering a Black Friday sale is to draw attention and to offer our thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims of the 607 mass shootings in the United States as of this date.
In the past week alone, mass shootings have claimed at least 24 lives and injured 37 others in gun rampages across seven states, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
We must also not forget those wounded in these shootings as they are not included in the statistics.
Mass Shooting Tracker: Defines “mass shooting” as “an incident where four or more people are shot in a single shooting spree,” including the perpetrator or police shootings of civilians around the perpetrator, irrespective of the motive of the perpetrator or the location of the murders.
” President Joe Biden said in a statement following the shooting. “When will we decide we’ve had enough? We must address the public health epidemic of gun violence in all of its forms.
” Since the Supreme Court ruled that citizens may keep a handgun at home for self-defense in District of Columbia v. Heller, courts across the country have reaffirmed that gun safety laws are constitutional and not in conflict with Second Amendment rights.
The Second Amendment allows almost any person to purchase a weapon and walk into a School, Shopping Center, or Grocery store and murder, children, teenagers, parents, and grandparents. Well, Joe stop talking about the problem, being mental health.
Guatemala according to the US Embassy is a dangerous country to visit. Our children walk to school holding hands and walking alone. Guatemala does not have mass shootings.
