Republicans Responsible for Mass Shootings

Trump signed law to help Mentally Ill Get Guns

Rachel Maddow points out the irony of Donald Trump’s remarks that the Las Vegas shooter was “sick and demented” when one of Trump’s first legislative accomplishments was a law to make it easier for the mentally ill to get guns.


Texas Loosening Gun Laws Weeks After Mass Shooting

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott defended new gun laws that ease restrictions on gun owners in that state, hours after the laws went into effect and hours after a gunman shot at least 21 people, killing seven, in and around Odessa, Texas.

The new laws loosen restrictions on gun ownership and use in schools, foster homes, apartment buildings, and houses of worship.


The only way to get tougher Gun Laws passed is to Vote Republicans Out of Office


As shown, Republican congressmen are bought & paid for by the NRA.

The reason Republicans are responsible for mass shootings and deaths since 2004 is because under George W. Bush as President, they let the Assault Weapons Ban expire in 2004 and 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 and most recently the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida in which 17 students died.

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.

The NRA is also responsible because they also do not want any restrictions on the sale / purchase of assault weapons and have used their lobbying power to make sure Republicans don’t support assault weapons bans.

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
