Posted on 05/19/2018 8:44:44 AM PDT by rktman
Following Fridays fatal school shooting in Texas numerous Democrat legislators called for Congress to take action.
Rep. Donald McEachin (VA), a self described Progressive Democrat, strongly condemned Republicans, tweeting that Childrens blood is on their hands:
When will this Republican controlled government allow us to act to protect our kids? Children's blood is on their hands.
Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy published a tweet that said: Lets call it like it is: the horrifying inaction of Congress, slaughter after slaughter, has become a green light to would-be shooters, who pervert silence into endorsement.
Some legislators mentioned the National Rifle Association (NRA). Texas Congressman Lloyd Doggett released a statement in which he referred to Congress as NRA-controlled:

Democrats should be more worried about the treason that is being exposed and they’re up to their necks in it.
They ain’t worried cause they got the doj/fbi in their back pocket. Or so it seems.
First reports of the shooting had the kid using an AR-15. Also, he possessed both guns illegally because of his age. Expect alot of vague accusations against the NRA. Gun laws failed again.
Euphemisms for the removal of arms from private citizen?
Stop with the mealy mouthed words, please, and state what you want done.
You're just as guilty of inaction as those you claim aren't taking action.
The RATS call for the burning of the Constitution after ANY EVENT. And always on the backs of the people....
These insane POS orchestrate these shootings thru their Deep State thugs to promote their anti-gun agenda. They all need to be arrested, tried, then taken out and hanged. These POSs have innocent blood all over their hands with their stupid “gun free” zones and hate rhetoric.
[[Lets call it like it is: the horrifying inaction of Congress,]]
Hmmm- the DO NOTHING congress is complaining that noone is doing anything? How about vote to arm teachers- Hire retired police as armed guards- get metal detectors into schools- cut down on the number of entrances and exits, provide safe rooms for kids to retreat to if possible-
Comeon Sen. Chris Murphy- Stop pretending you care while DOING NOTHING CONSTRUCTIVE yourself and DO SOMETHING- Your lousy rotten stinking faux outrage is both childish and unproductive! STOP trying to disarm law abiding citizens and vote for SENSIBLE SCHOOL POLICIES to prevent mass murders in your idiotic dangerous ‘gun free zones’- vote for policies that will actually make a difference!
destruction of the Democrat political machine that got 17 killed in florida must be the most important item on the agenda
The leftists have blood on their hands
Ah, standard message N from the never changing libs, where N is a large number.
Fascinating to see that they never look at the social sewer they’ve put us in as a cause. They only look at the perp’s choice of weapons.
Such is the curse of the progressive.
Democrat legislators called for Congress to take action.Will they want MS13 to protect the schools?.
Add to that a mandatory federal death penalty for every school shooter.
And then, once and for all, declare, "THERE, you leftist bastards! We DID something!"
They probably want to throw daddy in jail for negligence.
First action, designate ANTIFA a terrorist organization.
” Gun laws failed again.” That’s why they want ANTI GUN laws. Those never fail. Right?
The gated dreamworld that these people live in. They will disarm law abiding civilians but have their armed security and live in expensive, exclusive areas. They will send their kids to those sorts of schools but the rest will continue to be in the union shops that basically permit violent and angry discipline problems to carry on with their abhorrent behaviour until it is too late in those tragic instances.
My genius Senator.
So, this most recent "slaughter" was done with a shotgun and .38 revolver - so is he saying Congress is at fault for not banning shotguns and revolvers?
Is that what they want to run on this year? That and a pro-MS13 policy?
Any “action” by Congress would be Unconstitutional.
DIMs/LIBs are lunatics. Their mental illness continues to somewhat amuse me. What retards. What anti-Constitutional, worthless losers.
