It took Congress 5 minutes to come together to unanimously protect SCOTUS justices from peaceful protestors but we can’t find a single Republican who thinks 19 dead children is worth changing *anything* over.

.@JulianCastro on Texas Republicans in the wake of the Uvalde shooting: “More guns has never been the answer. It is a lie. It’s a mythology that these guys create. And they were there trying to create it again, manipulate the public again. “ on.msnbc.com/3wLSKOJ

BREAKING: GOP Florida state Rep. Randy Fine responds to the tragic Texas school schooling by threatening Joe Biden, calling him an “embarrassment” and saying he’ll “learn” why the 2nd Amendment exists if he tries to pass gun laws. RT TO DEMAND THAT THE SECRET SERVICE INVESTIGATE!

I just signed an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades. It will increase accountability, ban chokeholds, restrict no-knock entries, and more for federal law enforcement officers — and it incentivizes state and local officers to do the same.

It’s a little odd to me some people are acting more outraged at @BetoORourke for the press conference interruption than the actual shooting that occurred yesterday and spare me the whole “this is not the time” BS. The time is now.

This is so callous. There was no Emmett Till moment - federal legislation banning lynching passed *this year.* Mamie Till didn’t owe us her trauma and neither do the parents of these children. We don’t need chilling pictures we need better leaders.

I'd like to remind you, so that when this happens here, that Oklahoma lawmakers loves guns more than democracy, more than families, more than lives, more than anything (except money and power). kfor.com/news/oklahoma-legis…

I’ve called on Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, but Senate Republicans have stood in the way of progress. That’s why this afternoon, I’m taking action and signing an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades.

There's probably nothing that would move Republicans to act on guns. But we could start by not letting them enjoy a 3-day weekend. Cancel recess, schedule votes.

Imagine how traumatizing it’d be for a child to survive a school shooting (or for the parent of a child who didn’t) — only to go to Target and see this.

In the aftermath of his murder, a new generation of activists rose up to channel their anguish into organized action, launching a movement to raise awareness of systemic racism and the need for criminal justice and police reform.

As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer. His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.

When the 2nd Amendment was ratified, it took an average of 1-2 minutes to reload a flintlock rifle for each shot. Modernize Gun Rights to the 21st Century because of AR-15 multi-magazines guns killing children.
