It was a loaded day: armed rallies, Oklahoma City, inchoate anger in the
air. And grief. Relatives of some of the young victims at Virginia
Teach and at Columbine, which marks its 11th anniversary today, took
out ads urging Senate action on a gun show loophole that still
allows anyone to buy a gun without a background check. Was there ever a
better time to close it? 

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
