Coach Steve Kerr's voice resonates with me. This is how everyone of us should speak out about the gun crisis in America!
Coach Steve Kerr of Golden State Warriors words SHOOK me re: latest mass murder by gun violence in Uvalde, Texas: "tired of moments of silence, ENOUGH, there are 50 Senators who REFUSE to vote on a background check & it's been sitting there for 2 years!"

Aren’t we already trying the “more guns” approach to public safety?

Messaging is essential in a campaign and repetition helps those messages break through barriers. Democrats aren’t repeating enough. @JoeTrippi breaks it down on the pod: apple.co/3sRHsGE

Well this completely destroys the ‘we need more good guys with guns’ narrative.
Just wild. Here's part of the account from TX Dept of Pub Safety rep. Shooter crashed his car. There were calls to cops that a guy with a gun had crashed his car. He then tried to storm the school. Cops exchanged gunfire with him. But he was able to fight his way in.

Republicans would rather fight fictional Disney characters than fight the gun violence epidemic. That should tell you everything you need to know when you vote in November.

Enough is enough. As a nation, we must have the courage to take action and prevent this from ever happening again. It is long past time for our country to stand up to the gun lobby and pass reasonable gun safety laws.

If our kids matter, repeal Guns Everywhere. If our parents matter, repeal #CriminalCarry. If Georgians matter, close the Domestic Violence loophole & expand Medicaid for true mental health insurance parity. The time for platitudes is over. It’s our time to act. #OneGeorgia

I think it is important to be detailed because to say this was a "shooting" is sanitary. Children that young were killed by a weapon that shatters. Young kids would not have identification; they may not be recognizable. There are so many of them. Authorities are figuring 1/

If we lived in a multi-party country, every American would realize the far right has too much power. But since we live in a two party system, the far right gets to wear the banner of a major party and people are super confused about why these things keep happening.

I am heartbroken and VERY pissed off. I was 10 years old when Columbine happened. @ChuckGrassley had already sat in Washington for 23 years at that time. Decades later, he’s STILL blocking commonsense gun legislation. My thoughts from earlier tonight:

For every parent, for every citizen, we have to make it clear to every elected official: It’s time for action. We can do more. We must do more.
