When President Clinton banned assault rifles in 1994, mass shootings dropped by 43%. After Republicans let the ban expire in 2004, they increased by 243% — please don’t tell me bans don’t work, because I don’t want to hear it.

Add: Registration fees and state insurance pools should be used to offset the societal costs of gun violence and accidents: 1st responders, medical services, funerals, criminal justice, mental health tx for survivors, family financial support, hiring new employees,

When Republicans say “Chicago” what they really mean is Black people

I understand some people are gun hobbyists. My hobby is jigsaw puzzles. If people started using jigsaw puzzles to murder 4th graders I'd find a new hobby.

CONFIRMED: The Texas school shooter used an AR-15 assault rifle. Sorry Republicans, but I’m pretty sure that when they wrote the 2nd amendment, the Founding Fathers were NOT referring to assault rifles that can shoot DOZENS of elementary school CHILDREN at once.

UPDATE: the Uvalde killer was engaged by law enforcement outside the school *BEFORE* he went inside. More cops at schools: not the answer. Arming teachers: not the answer.

Honestly, I want the elected officials to roll up on the GOPers and Manchin and Sinema and with some live cameras and invite them to write the bill tonight. Pass it this week. Come outside. Let’s work. I don’t want y’all’s tweets. Get bold.

“Why are you here?!" A furious Sen. Chris Murphy demands answers from senators following Texas school shooting. “Why do you spend all this time running for the United States Senate...if your answer, is as the slaughter increases, as our kids run for their lives—we do nothing?”

Remember Heller. Remember that the Roberts Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision--over a withering dissent by Stevens--threw out democratically passed gun control laws in 2008. They invented a new 2nd Amendment and a false banner to rally around to stop basic protection of children.

When people say don't "politicize" mass shootings by calling for stronger gun control, they are literally doing just that.

It's very disturbing that a party that is willing to let women suffer & die to ensure fetuses are carried to term won't protect actual living children by restricting gun ownership in sensible ways.

Imagine how many children wouldn’t be slaughtered in school if being pro-life was more than just a talking point for Republicans in Congress.

every time this happens I watch the conversation move toward the why. Mental health, race, class, domestic dispute etc. I kind of can’t stand that because all it does is protect the only constant in each case: a gun.

Politicians will do more to “protect” kids from learning an accurate version of US history than they’ll do to protect them from being killed in cold blood. Our country is painfully, irreparably broken.
