Periodic reminder that St Louis has more than twice the murder rate of Chicago, but NRA types ignore that because the fact that Missouri has no gun control goes against their narrative.

The GOP cut funding to address mental illness, law enforcement doesn't really want any more people with guns in schools and the students (many too young to vote) are getting more engaged in trying to protect themselves than those elected and paid to take care of them.

Maybe we should just turn our entire country into a live battlefield, with every citizen prepared to kill and die at all times. Perhaps we’ll have actual warlords who control swaths of territory with mini arsenals like a Mad Max movie. Maybe then the gun lobby will be satisfied.

Let me guess....we're going to defund the school music program and discontinue the hot breakfasts to pay for the teachers' guns.

You know why right wing conspiracists are attacking these kids? Because they are E-F-F-E-C-T-I-V-E. Not political hacks. Not paid shills. Not indoctrinated. Not character actors. They are young people of character compelled into action by a horrible crime that cost 17 lives.

The same GOP that says we’re too broke to give teachers funding for school supplies wants to pay to train them to carry guns, return fire under duress (insanely difficult), AND act as first responders. All to combat a problem they could easily solve with common sense legislation.

Last time I checked the Las Vegas and Florida shooters were Trump supporters.

It is interesting to note the difference in support for the kids in FL versus the kids in Black Lives Matter. I say that with full admiration for the kids in FL, to survive such a trauma and fight for everyone to be safer. But that’s also what was happening in Ferguson and beyond

I started to think about this after George Clooney’s announcement. And it isn’t divisive to observe the difference in support from the media, from celebrities, etc. I think the FL kids are fucking awesome but so are the kids in Ferguson and Baltimore and Chicago and more.

Arming everyone is the obvious solution for kids. This is why war zones are famed for their safety.

A reminder that in our history, students who were fed up with things have accomplished some pretty big things.

This is the angriest I’ve ever been on Twitter. I cannot fathom how people are willing to ignore human loss, the murder of innocent children, and pretend it’s conspiracy. You should all be f-ing ashamed of your evil selves. Does it have to happen to your own kid for it to count?!

Right now in America there are Republicans who received millions of dollars from the NRA accusing CHILDREN who survived a massacre of being PAID to speak out on guns.

I am a gun control advocate but child poverty, economic & educational disparity are much higher priorities for me. There are 1000’s of Black & poor people dying a slow painful death each day in this country from diseases & other things cause by being poor.

Poverty is the parent of crime. Neither Candy or anything else the police do will reduce crime. As long as most of the economic development projects are concentrated in the central corridor to benefit white rich people, crime will flourish.
