Peck should resign

Even after he apologized onCNN, Kansas Democrats continued their call Friday for Rep. Virgil Peck, Republican to resign, according to The Wichita Eagle.
Peck’s Comments have made it to the national news and he is getting plenty of attention. Most of it is not good.
Jessica Hord of Newsy.com warned someone may be inspired to do such a thing. She said this is just fuel to the fire for some unstable mind who believes it must be OK if Peck thinks it is.
She said a nine year old girl was killed by a vigilante border guard in Arizona.
Various laws are being considered that are similar to the state of Arizona, where a person who simply “looks Latino” could be stopped for suspicion of being an illegal alien.
According to CNN;
"We must call upon Rep. Peck to resign his seat in the House of Representatives and allow someone who will respect the proper role of a state representative to take his place," House Minority Leader Rep. Paul Davis said Friday.
KansasHouse Speaker Mike O'Neal refused to comment on the call for Peck's resignation. O'Neal told reporters he "considers it a private matter" and would not comment further.
Also, according to The Wichita Eagle, calls for Peck to resign have also been from the National Council of La Raza, Somos Republicans, the League of United Latin American Citizens and the Latino Information Network of Kansas.
Apparently, Peck and many of his Republican friends don’t realize how serious his “joke” was. Killing innocent people is never funny. Peck should resign as he is being asked to by so many Latino groups.
