The 18th School Shooting this year. The President offers prayers, Paul Rubio offers prayers. The fingers are being pointed at the FBI for failing to flag the suspect in custody. Rubio even said that people always want action but nothing will prevent these tragedies from happening. If a motivated person wants to kill then he will kill. I will agree to this statement if the killer hadn’t chosen to use an AR-15 Tactical Rifle that fires 45 Rounds per second. The Republican’s act as though this isn’t their fault. It is their fault. Since 2016, restriction and regulations have been removed. Mentally ill people can now purchase weapons. Military grade weapons. Ordinary citizens should not have access to these weapons.
We do not need a wall to protect us from Mexico. Why not take that money and just put it into more agents to do background checks? Perhaps have guidelines that if you have been investigated by the FBI or ATF that you can not purchase any weapon for a 30 day evaluation period. How about we freeze all military grade weapon sales? Nope…that’s not the problem according to Rubio and the Republicans.
Paul Rubio has accepted over $3 million in gun lobby monies to his campaign. That is blood money. Pat Toomey has accepted almost $1 million in campaign contributions. That is blood money. John McCain has accepted over $6 million from gun lobbyists. That is blood money.
The message from our leaders this day is…Deal with the fact that these deaths will never end as long as “evil” wants to destroy our children. I say…that’s a cop-out. These murders are being committed by males. Perhaps what we need are more women in government and fewer men.
It’s never fruitful that the message of peace comes from a man who advocates men who have sex with young girls or beat their wives. A man who wants a phallic military parade. Perhaps, it’s time to let the women run things.
God is watching. You won’t be saved in the end as long as you take the side of violence and aggression. Keep those prayers for you will truly need them.
