|Chuck Schumer-Nancy Pelosi-Completely out of touch|
"You and your candidate will be understandably outraged and upset, as will your community. However, DO NOT POLITICIZE IT TODAY. There will be time for politics and policy discussion, but any message today should be on offering thoughts/prayers for victims and their families, and thanking 1st responders who saved lives."Couldn't have been written any better by the National Rifle Assn., coming right from the mouth of Wayne LaPierre. My God, when is the time to talk about 58 innocent people who were shot by a maniac that shouldn't have had a gun, with a bump stock that shouldn't have ever been legalized in the first place. The wealthy Democrats who donate to the Party are afraid of going up against the 2nd Amendment. I say SCREW THE 2ND AMENDMENT! Should have been replaced long ago. Guns are not necessary, even for protection; I'm 85 years old and have never had the need for one.
The NRA has scared the wits out of most politicians with weak spines, which is the majority of this Congress, and the Democratic Party has followed suit with conservatives that prefer their gun rights over legislation that would prevent the vicious murder of children. To me it's a ridiculous choice: Take the guns off the street or allow 1,297 to die by a gun, 5,790 injured. To me it is a simple choice. It's up to the American public to make that choice, and if they don't do it soon, there will most certainly be a next time. And that number could be a hundred killed, maybe two-hundred. Pathetic!
