Paul Ryan kicked out two gun control activists from a fundraiser in Florida this weekend:

Two protesters chanting “no more guns” were removed from a Republican fundraiser in Key Biscayne Friday night after confronting Speaker of the House Paul Ryan about the mass shooting that happened days earlier and miles up the road. […]

Thorne said she found Ryan in the middle of the room — “I shook his hand and everything,” she said — and introduced herself as a teacher and Key Biscayner.

“Nice,” the Republican congressman replied.

“Nice?” Thorne said. “You’re here celebrating the death of 17 children.”

At that, Thorne said, Ryan told her he “didn’t want to talk politics” or argue. When Thorne tried to continue, security escorted her out. She chanted “No more guns!” on her way out the door, she said. —…

This is not a surprise. Paul Ryan is likely trying to figure out how much money he can raise from the deaths of 17 people (14 of them children) in Parkland. The pro-massacre NRA is probably good for a few million.

Randy Bryce (IronStache) is running against Ryan and deserves your support.

Meanwhile, Trump did his best to outdo Ryan in his callousness, hosting a disco party in Florida three days after one of the ten deadliest mass shootings in US history.

Three of the ten deadliest mass shootings in US history have occurred in the past 5 months.

The pro-massacre Republican party has killed virtually every effort at rational gun control for several decades. It has been aided and abetted in this task by the nation’s premier pro-mass-murder organization, the NRA.

But the tide is turning. A major Republican donor announced this week that he would not donate to any candidate who does not support an assault weapons ban.

Survivors and family are leading the charge in calling Republican politicians to task and keeping the issue front and center.

Three major protests have been organized for the next few weeks.

If you’re looking for something simple to do, here’s a simple option:

Reversing decades of perversions the NRA has introduced into our judicial system by pressuring judges will be difficult, but we can start this Tuesday with a judicial election in Wisconsin on Feb 20.

In 2013, 40 senators voted for S.150, Diane Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban. Today, many of those senators are pushing for solutions to the epidemic of shooting massacres.
