And Another One...
There was yet another school shooting yesterday. It took place at Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and one child was killed, while eight others were wounded. The school is seven miles Columbine High School.
This is the 35th school shooting this year. Yesterday was Day 128 in 2019. That means we have had an average of one school shooting less than every four days.
And the best we get from concerned Republican politicians is "hopes and prayers." The worst we get is silence -- as is the case here with Trump, who's spent his Twitter Time posting pictures of his sycophants cheering him at a rally. Worse too is when the gun corporation-owned NRA fringe terrorist group dismisses all these shootings and tries to find blame for them other than guns.
The only positive here is that the NRA is so inundated with its own problems -- its former president resigning, its top lawyer being suspended, two internal investigations into financial fraud, it's new president saying that a U.S. congresswoman only won election because she was a woman and black, a federal investigation into NRA money laundering for Russia, and the New York state Attorney General investigation the NRA's tax exempt status -- that they haven't had the chance to be as reprehensibly public as usual about this latest school shooting.
