Over a 100 students from Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have traveled to the state capitol of Tallahasse to protest the legislature’s failure to pass gun safety/control. Prior to their arrival, the Florida legislature killed a proposed measure to ban “assault” weapons as a handful of survivors from Parkland’s Douglas High watched.

Republican shills know they have no answer to the committed Douglas High kids. So they’ve trotted out rapists to malign the kids:

Meanwhile, an aide to a Florida Republican legislator told a reporter the children were “actors that travel to various crisis when they happen”. This is an outright conspiracy theory, the aide has been fired.

But the asshole of the moment award goes to Dinesh D’Souza who decided to post a series of tweets disparaging the kids and gleefully celebrating the assault weapons ban being voted down:

Thankfully, Bill O’Reilly, Fox News, Dinesh D’Souza and all the other pro-massacre talking heads the GOP has trotted out today are receiving well-deserved smackdowns from Douglas High kids and kids all over the country.

Buzzfeed has a nice article about how Douglas High survivors are sparking a revolution by working together from a couple of living rooms.

As a reminder, there are several major protests being planned over the next few weeks:

The NRA and the mass-murder enablers in the GOP are counting on Americans’s dismay at the last three terrible mass shooting just as others have. But this feels different. Perhaps it’s because a bunch of teenagers who can speak for themselves are the survivors this time, and not 6 and 7 year old kids at a school in Connecticut. Whatever it is, you can see it across the country:

And in case you thought this entire world has gone to shit, just remember this:

  1. The kids are no more emotional than all the Republicans who may be voted out before this year is out! At least the kids are working for a future.

  2. They can’t buy a beer but they can buy a gun. This is absolutely absurd. These young adults are to be praised not maligned. I am sick and tired of the GOP and their leader. The GOP and the leader are “the idiots following the idiot.”
