As shocking details come in about yesterday’s mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school where 17 were killed and 14 others injured, Donald Trump takes to twitter to blame the victims.

Trump’s cruel tweet is an obvious diversion from the fact that the 19 year old Parkland shooter was able to legally obtain the semi-automatic weapon used in the crime because Republicans have blocked sensible gun safety laws.

Bought and owned by the NRA, these cowardly Republicans have failed to take action to protect our children and citizens time and again.

As Parkland High School student David Hogg so powerfully stated:

 ‘Some of our policy makers need to look in the mirror and take some action…Without action, children die.’

You’re Damn Right I’m Going to Politicize This Tragedy. You Should Too.

The teenage, Parkland mass shooter was able to legally obtain a semi-automatic weapon despite the fact he had shown a propensity for violence and had fetishized weapons. He had been reported to the FBI for making violent threats and was expelled from the high school for posing a danger the year prior. Clearly, there are gaping holes in the system that allow these mass shootings to occur. And they are getting worse.

Mass Shootings are getting deadlier. And the latest ones all have something new in common: The AR-15

The nation’s mass-shooting problem seems to be getting worse. And the latest, most serious shootings all seem to have one new thing in common: the AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle.​​​​​​

You’re Damn Right I’m Going to Politicize This Tragedy. You Should Too.
