Trump Just Blamed The Florida Massacre On The Russia Investigation
Fuck you, Donald Trump.
Fuck you, Donald Trump.
Thoughts and prayers do nothing to prevent the next gun massacre or end childhood poverty but the GOP has made it clear that's not a priority.
These are the kids that will take down the lawmakers who are doing nothing. These are the future voters coming for Congress and their inability to create change. These are the people who the NRA should fear. These kids have grown up with the terrifying reality that they may be killed in Math class. And they aren't going to stand for it anymore.
Through all this sorrow and anger and fear, with 17 kids murdered in an American school, Donald Trump puts the blame on the students and neighbors of the shooter. Can we have some thoughts and prayers for our President?
The King of the BernieBros and Donald Trump agree on this red herring argument regarding mass shooters and gun control.
After 17 children were slaughtered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, by former student Nikolas Cruz, parents in America must now take matters into their own hands.
Hey, everybody, let’s continue to be utterly baffled with each successive public slaughter!
This isn't about "freedom", it's about power and they don't care who pays the price.
Steve Scalise was a homophobic, NRA loving, white supremacist before gun violence nearly took his life, and apparently, he wants to die that way too.
A new program aimed at training children to survive a firefight is the NRA's answer to America's school shooting epidemic
For a "progressive," he sounds an awful lot like a Trumper.
Bereft of a black president to scare white Americans into buying more guns, the NRA has decided to incite violence against Black Lives Matter instead.
Right wing radio and TV host Dana Loesch hypocritically riles up the paranoia to make gun owners see liberals as their dangerous enemy
"Don't rock the boat" is not a responsible answer to a legitimate question about your child's safety.
Yes, how disgusting liberals are for demanding gun control so that mass shootings like the one today don't happen, and people -- regardless of their politics -- can play basketball safely without worrying about being shot to pieces by a mentally disturbed madman with a gun fetish.
The gun industry and the NRA have reached a whole new level of irresponsibility in the pursuit of blood-soaked profits.
The constitution is an important document, but not an immutable law for human societies. It can be rewritten (as it has been), and should be if Americans want to avoid the gruesome bloodshed no other civilized nation on earth suffers from.
Yes, because one should always go out clubbing armed to the teeth on the off chance a deranged mass murderer decides to go to the same venue.
He better invest in a good flak jacket.
Time for Republican leaders to put their own asses on the line for a change.
Wall Street deserves prosecution, but Bernie doesn't think the makers of the Sandy Hook weapon should be held accountable...
Well that was quick. After Obama bravely confronted the insane gun culture in America and showed raw emotion over the thousands of lives lost to gun violence in America, Sarah Palin has waded into the debate Hockey Mom style with the finesse of a drunken ballerina.
Finally, finally, finally.
Don'cha just hate it when people twist the scriptures to fit their own violent ideology?
The NRA released what can charitably be described as the dumbest video in history.
This gun violence will not stop unless massive political action is taken, and as sad as this is for me to say, I see no possibility that it can, or will happen. And for that reason, there will probably come a point when, out of fear, I will feel compelled to go back home.
Before you waste your time counting, it's 14 times. President Obama has stepped up to a podium 14 times to offer remarks and condolences following a firearm massacre. The Huffington Post compiled clips from all of those address, and it's heartbreaking.
It's important to underscore how truly difficult it is to say anything about guns and gun control that are more insane than CEO and president Wayne LaPierre whose previous job was scamming Martini, Harding and Taber at Black Jack just before medication time.
Still a hot topic in the news, conservative commentators have been coming out in droves to a) demand a war on all Muslims, b) blame Obama, c) argue for more guns everywhere. On Monday, Fox DC investigative reporter Emily Miller swung by the studio to claim that the terrorist attack in Paris was not prevented because instead of packing heat, French people carry iPhones. Yes, seriously.
The gun industry lobbyist group successfully convinced lawmakers to bury the legislation in the state house. Why? Because an amendment in the bill would have banned the cruel and gratuitous tradition of "pigeon shoots."
The NRA specifically argues in favor of a domestic abuser's right to retain illegal guns.
You might recall our coverage of Billy's previous NRA effort in which he explained how gun classes should be taught in schools.
America has collectively gone nuts. Garment-rending mobs are, among other things, blaming President Obama for almost literally everything, so given the context it's really not too shocking to see a brutally racist billboard in Cleveland calling for Obama's impeachment and featuring a gigantic pair of black, well, nuts.
Without any fanfare or explanation, the National Rifle Association removed from YouTube a video in which commentator Don Raso makes a case for allowing blind people to carry firearms in public.
Yes, the new video suggests that blind people should be allowed to own and use firearms. Clearly when the NRA titled its previous video "Everybody Gets A Gun," he meant it.
The NRA released a brand new YouTube video that literally makes no sense whatsoever -- on any level. In fact, it's so off-the-rails that it's difficult to imagine even the most loyal NRA automatons buying into what it says.
There's a new "gun safety" PSA featuring little kids sword-fighting with dildos that has captured the imagination of every blog that wants to get "dildo" into a headline (which is to say, all of them), but the seemingly benign message behind the deliberately provocative premise is a dangerous lie.
We always talk about how we can better educate The Children to prepare them -- and the country -- for a future in a globally competitive world. But how in the hell are we supposed to do that when we can't even protect them in the place they should feel the most safe outside of their own homes?
The gun rights group Open Carry Texas tweeted that the NRA — which you may remember as a 142-year-old, five-million-member pro-gun lobby — is a bunch of “gun control extremists.”
You may remember Open Carry Texas from their armed standoff against four moms whom they surmised probably wanted to be raped, but the group was back at it last week, filming themselves getting ejected from Chili's and Sonic.
Two months ago, the National Rifle Association (NRA) joined an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit over the National Security Agency's (NSA) phone metadata collection program, most recently published by Glenn Greenwald based on leaked documents from Edward Snowden. So why does the NRA support a national database of the mentally ill?
The National Rifle Association held its annual firearms fapfest this past weekend, and while Sarah Palin, was the featured speaker, the real star of the show was a big, fat Fox News lie.
During her "Stand And Fight" remarks, Palin treated the audience to a thumbnail of what she would do as President of the United States. "Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists."
