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:

If the children aren’t going to be protected with armed response teams in school and fortified security, don’t come crying to me when this happens, because I no longer care.
I am all out of give a damn.
London outlawed firearms and have now outlawed knives. Taking firearms, knives or anything that can be used as a weapon from citizens is like and kind for the reason those who are incarcerated are not allowed to possess weapons, its all about controlling the masses who may be a threat to the ruling elites plan of complete and absolute control. I hope we the people never allow them to succeed.
In the Democrat civil war it is The Crazies vs The Insanes. Events like the Texas murders smoke out the Crazies and embolden them. We want The Crazies to win and keep nominating Crazies. The Insanes want to lie to us to trick us into electing them.The Crazies don’t care about lying to voters.They hate Trump and believe everyone else does so why lie? When you only watch CNN and only read the New York Times what else could you believe?
Blah, blah, blah, guns, blah, blah, blah. Never ending.
Since the enactment of the gun free school zone legislation nearly 30 years ago, school shootings have increased THREE FOLD.
And do what? It has all been done, over and over. Just follow the laws, rules and regulations already in place. Quit spending time and money for nothing.
Thnkin’ at least one of the 20,000 laws on the books might have worked. Guess not.
One answer is to secure our schools as secure as Congress. I dare one a-hole politician to outright say no to that. There are about 100,000 public schools in America and we as taxpayers pay over 650 BILLION ($12,000 per student average) on schools. It can't be done or they don't want it done?
Seems like all these school shooters were already subjects of government public schools so why aren’t they blaming themselves?
I agree. Action should be taken. All democrats should be either given a laser frontal lobotomy or deported from these United States which they have divided and created such hostility in.
Okay; get it done congress critters. We can use those in the first group to take care of the menial labor needs of the country.
Childrens blood is on their hands: Obama’s hands off policies
For the rule of law to ever mean anything again, these traitors have got to be tried and sentenced. If not, we’re done. Hannity and Levin have said the same thing as well as Rush.
And, each of us has a responsibility to demand that justice be served. We all have a stake in this and our children’s futures depend on us vocally demanding these agencies and members of Congress and whomever is implicated be exposed and tried for their crimes against “our” country.
Instead of saying they will get away with their crimes, start writing and saying that they “MUST” be tried for their crimes.
McEachin should put his money where is mouth is. Burn a copy of the Constitution on the House floor.
Put up or shut up.
I agree with the ‘RATS. Shut down the NEA, fire ALL school officials and close down the public schools until the children are taught to behave themselves. I can’t take a two inch pocket knife into a hockey game but Spanky Snowflake can take a shotgun, pistol and bombs into a school. Somebody is screwing the pooch somewhere and it’s not in Congress.
I know you're a low I.Q. DemocRAT but the way to "protect our kids" is to make it illegal for them to carry weapons and bombs into the public schools to kill their classmates. Try thinking things through before you make stupid statements like this, moron.
Increase public awareness of mental illness and provide help for those who suffer from it. (Not just a Pill)
Fix the Public Schools or go private.
Remove the brainwashing from Primary and Secondary education and from TV.
Restore the teaching of “real” history in schools.
Create education systems to speed up transition from youth to adult employment, teach independence.
Take violent programming off of TV and remove violence from internet/computer games.
Take ComDem agitation off of TV.
Educate young people in safe handling of firearms.
Vote out the Godless Leftist ComDem destroyers of common morality in the U.S.
I’m going to go out on a limb, here, and predict that NONE of your ideas, while sounding pretty good to me, are on the democrat’s list. Just a wild guess, though... ;-p
I never said the JackAsses wanted any of them, but those suggestions would put a hole in the problem.
I quite frankly don’t care anymore what the ComDems want.
