I think what we have here is failure to communicate
Frustrated onlookers urged police officers to charge into the Texas elementary school where a gunman’s rampage killed 19 children and two teachers, witnesses said Wednesday, as investigators worked to track the massacre that lasted upwards of 40 minutes and ended when the 18-year-old shooter was killed by a Border Patrol team.



The Parkland Cops ran away. The Buffalo Cop was killed instantly. The 3 Cops at Uvalde were overpowered, then waited 40 min to enter the school.

Veteran Cops repeatedly failed—but we’re supposed to expect Lunch Lady Doris & School Nurse Betty to stop a terrorist with an AR-15. - Qasim Rashid tweet

The World Is A Safer Place Without Republicans

The Senate must consider an exception to the filibuster to curb gun violence.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told colleagues on the Senate floor Wednesday that he will not immediately bring gun-control measures to the floor in the wake of two mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas, because he doesn’t expect them to muster enough Republican votes to pass. 


It’s just sick that gun manufacturers have spent two decades aggressively marketing assault weapons which make them some of the biggest profits. 

For God’s sake, let’s have the courage to stand up to the industry. - President Biden tweet
