Republicans Don’t Care About Kids Murdered in Schools

Featured Video Play Icon

By REFUSING to outlaw assault weapons, HEARTLESS Republicans proved they don’t care about kids being murdered in schools like Sandy Hook and Stoneman Douglas High School.

Since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, there have been 200 school shootings. But on Capitol Hill and in many state legislatures, Republican lawmakers have blocked efforts to enact gun control. Wednesday’s shooting in Florida comes just days after President Trump released his budget, which proposes cutting millions of dollars from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. We speak to Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in which 20 children were massacred with a semi-automatic weapon demonstrates the need for legislation restricting such weapons.

Republican Florida lawmakers refuse to consider assault weapons ban despite call for tougher gun control laws

 

Republicans have put receiving DONATIONS and keeping their JOBS above protecting children’s lives!

 

Republicans are responsible for mass shootings and deaths since 2004 because President George W. Bush let the Assault Weapons Ban expire in 2004. Republicans have refused since then to allow it to be renewed.

Under the 1994 Clinton Administration Assault Weapons Ban, the maximum capacity of a magazine was set at 10 rounds. AR-15s were one of 18 semiautomatic weapons banned under the 1994 law that expired in 2004 despite broad public support and a drop in gun fatalities.

Since then, killers have used semiautomatics to target victims en masse at Virginia Tech in 2007; the Fort Hood military base in 2009; the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado in 2012; a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012; Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, CT in 2012, the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando in 2016, the 2017 Las Vegas shooting which left 58 people dead, the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fl in which 17 students died and mass shooting on March 22, 2021 at a King Soopers supermarket in Boulder, CO in which 10 people were killed.

Since Republicans have consistently refused to make assault weapons illegal, they are responsible for ALL mass shootings in the United States in which assault weapons were used.

How A Handgun Is Different To An AR-15

Stephanie Ruhle takes a look at what teachers would be up against, if they were armed with a handgun and confronted with an AR-15. MSNBC Terrorism Analyst Malcolm Nance explains just how outgunned these teachers would be.

 

Proof That AR-15s Are Weapons Of War

The death toll from the shooting in Colorado may be unusual in most countries, but it’s common in the U.S. because the alleged killer used an “AR-15 style rifle,” a weapon explicitly meant for going on offense and not defense. In this special report, MSNBC’s Ari Melber traces the origins of the weapon and its intended use, how civilians came about using it in increasing numbers, and what makes it so deadly. This is an excerpt from a longer special report. Aired on 03/23/2021.

 

Two days before the deadly riots at the Capitol, the NRA sent a letter to its members claiming that under the Biden administration, armed government agents would “storm your house, take your guns and haul you to prison.”

When the 2nd amendment was written, muskets were the “arms” the writers of the constitution were referring to, not semi-automatic weapons with a hundred rounds of ammunition

86 Percent of Americans support background checks on people purchasing guns and limiting access to semi-automatic assault weapons, but the NRA is doing everything possible to thwart the will of the American people. The NRA don’t give a DAMN what the American people wants.

The LIE that the NRA and Republicans continue to peddle that… “Democrats want to take your guns away is TOTAL BS!

They use this ridiculous lie to make sure low-information people ALWAYS vote for Republicans, who want to take away their Healthcare, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security while giving Tax Breaks to the Rich.

Amazing how almost half of the people in this country are so stupid that they consistently vote for Republicans… who consistently do NOTHING for them.

Kids chanting “The NRA has Got to Go”

The Aurora Shooting and the Snake Oil Peddlers of the NRA

In an era when we have hundreds of documented cases of discrimination against people for their sex, religion, or sexual preference, and live in a society where the difference between the haves and have-nots is becoming more pronounced with the passing of each day, the Missouri House of Representatives actually considered a bill to stop discrimination against the most aggrieved group of all — gun owners.
