NRA pulls Valentine's Day gun tweet after Florida school shooting

It’s time for real action in America to stop the killing Students attend a prayer service Thursday at Parkridge Church in Coral Springs Fla

Again, though, past history suggests that any bump in public opinion in favor of gun control will not hold.

If the debate rings hollow, it's because both sides are immutable.

They argue that no law can prevent deranged individuals and criminals from obtaining a weapon, nor from opening fire in a school. The US government has an obligation to protect its citizens, granting us the fundamental rights of "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness".

"We need to make sure that when people see signs, they have every ability to do something about getting guns out of the hands of mentally ill and risky people", Ting told The Associated Press. But by turning normal-American NRA members into some kind of demonic monster to be defeated, histrionic gun-controllers calcify opposition against any kind of even moderate reform.

A letter in the February 16 Californian screams for the government suppression, of what the letter writer calls a terrorist organization ("Political efforts badly needed to suppress NRA"). Among gun owners, 30% said they could vote only for someone who shared their viewpoint.

Feds Probe If Manafort Promised Banker WH Job for Loans
Trump appointed Calk to his council of economic advisers in August 2016, but the banker never got a coveted Cabinet position . The indictment contained a total of 12 criminal counts, including money laundering and conspiracy against the United States .

On Thursday, Trump delivered a televised address to declare the United Sates a country in mourning - but avoided all mention of guns. Today the National Rifle Association's origin as a sportsman's hunting and target shooting group is a tertiary interest, replaced by a well financed effort to promote fear of crime to keep gun sales booming. Outside of having a black president, mass shootings are the biggest drivers of gun sales in this country - or rather the "response" to mass shootings.

"Every nation is home to disturbed teenagers who have been expelled from school". I don't care to hear the love songs about how you grew up with guns, how you hunted with your daddy and forged "an unbreakable bond", how your granddaddy passed down the family tradition, or that you simply love the architecture and beauty of guns. We know it's only a matter of time before another murderer lets loose on innocent civilians, but we can't pinpoint exactly when it will transpire. This does not include mass shooting in Las Vegas at a rock concert that left 58 dead and 851 injured.

The risk of dying by gunshot in America is 300 times higher than in Japan. The U.S. stands alone in the amount of gun deaths per year, and all for the sake of "freedom". Note that approximately 97% of the recipients of blood-on-their-hands gun lobby largess are Republicans, including fine folks like: the House and Senate Republican caucuses; the Republican Party of Virginia; Sen. He and Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio called for prayers. Since 1996, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been barred from using federal funds to research the causes of the country's high incidence of gun violence, similar to how the agency made cars safer decades earlier.

Even celebrity intervention is likely to fall on deaf ears.
