506 days ago insurrectionists ransacked the US Capitol and *hours later* 138-of-202 (68%) House republicans voted to make trump a dictator. They tried to finish the riotersโ€™ job and end democracy. Never forget it.

This week republicans are refusing to discuss guns and instead blaming video games, doors, secularism, and feral pigs. How would you feel if your child was murdered and this is how republicans responded?

The truth is republicansโ€™ new obsession with doors is their latest deflection to avoid talking about their flooding our streets with military war weapons. Donโ€™t fall for it.
Asked what his plan is to keep schools safe, Kevin McCarthy says schools should be able to repurpose Covid funds to reduce doors. #DoorControl

The republican party is cruel, corrupt, incompetent, unfit to govern and its leaders donโ€™t give a damn about you or your kidsโ€™ lives.

The republican party would rather your children get shot in school than take military war weapons off your street.

Gun violence is a catastrophic earthquake that ripples through families and communities. This is beyond dreadful.
Joe Garcia, the husband of Irma Garcia, one of two teachers shot and killed in Uvalde, TX on Tuesday, has reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack. Joe and Irma were high school sweethearts and married 24 years. They leave behind four children.

How would you feel if your kids were shot and this is how republican leaders reacted?
Texas Lt Gov Dan Patrick was on Fox & Friends talking about the need for "hardening our schools" and the role of violent video games and violent music in school shootings. Anything but guns.

One door. Thatโ€™s republicansโ€™ โ€œsolutionโ€ to school shootings. Not fewer guns but fewer doors. Elected republicans donโ€™t give a damn about dead children.
Cruz: Have one doorโ€ฆ and have that one door, armed police officers at that door. If that had happened.. when that psychopath had arrived, the armed police officers couldโ€™ve taken him outโ€ฆ

For 12 years Texas republicans have refused to expand Medicaid out of spite, denying physical or mental care to ~1,748,000 Texans. They donโ€™t care about mental health itโ€™s another gop deflecting lie.
Texas Gov. Abbott says the Uvalde school shooter had a "mental health challenge" and the state needed to "do a better job with mental health" โ€” yet in April he slashed $211M from the department that oversees mental health programs. nbcnews.to/39VYlJE

Watching the republican partyโ€™s #1 propaganda show tonight theyโ€™re blaming political correctness, video games, secularism, lack of teacher firearms training, beto oโ€™rourke, everything but the flood of hundreds of millions of guns into our streets.
