Blood Soaked NRA Silent on Florida School Shooting - But Twitter is F-ing Furious

Blood Soaked NRA Silent on Florida School Shooting – But Twitter is F-ing Furious

There was another school shooting Wednesday, this time at a Florida high school. At last update, two people are dead for sure, and there are “multiple fatalities”, with at least 14 casualties, and the 18-year old shooter is in custody.

There it is. Two sentences. That is how routine school shootings have become in America. In fact, they are now so routine I was able to recycle most of that text. Indeed this is the 12th such shooting so far in this year. That’s how day-to-day normal this has become, and it definitely should not be.

And as has become the routine, the NRA has been silent about the shooting. Just as they usually are. They have blood on their hands, and nothing to say.

As of now, here’s the latest post on the NRA’s Twitter:

And on Facebook:

See that? Conservative politics. That’s what they’re talking about. Because that’s what they really are. Are they out there tweeting and posting and appearing on TV saying anything about solving this problem? Are they talking about gun safety? No… they’ve got nothing to say at all.

And when they do speak up, if they follow their pattern, it’ll be to play the blame game, to deflect, to say it’s perpetually too soon to talk solutions, to offer empty “thoughts and prayers”….

But Twitter has a lot to say…

First, the scene…

Senator Marco Rubio Says…

…but not a day you legislate for if you sold your soul to the NRA.

The master of horror… horrified.

Over your cold, dead…

Do something BESIDES think and pray…

The last guy called it…

Celebrity parents are in this with the rest of us…

And lots of heartbreak and damnation…
