This guy (Ben Shapiro) is such a clown. The shooter doesn’t seem to have violated ANY gun laws. There’s no law against people buying military assault weapons. There’s no law against 18-year-olds buying them. There’s no law requiring a background check. What gun laws?

An idea from Elon: send the assault weapons to places that have a lot of gang warfare.

Elon Musk told CNBC he is in favor of "limiting sales of assault weapons to people in special circumstances, like gun range owners, or people who live in a 'high risk location, like gang warfare.'" cnb.cx/3MMP84I

Don’t “politicize this tragedy” means don’t do anything. “How dare you politicize this” means, just look away, surrender. Politics isn’t a dirty word. Politics is how we come together to solve problems.

If we have to choose between getting rid of guns or getting rid of schools, the Federalist has no problem.

Watch and listen.

NEW: Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL) says gun control measures would likely not be taken up until after Senate Memorial Day recess

Ted Cruz’s “solution” is more armed guards at schools. We’re already wasting our education budgets on armed guards—and they still can’t stop an 18-year-old with a military assault weapon from massacring children.

The school district for Robb Elementary has its own police department with 5 cops and 1 security guard. The city of Uvalde's police department recieved just under 40% of the entire city's budget for the year and got a 500k grant from the state. Neither stopped today's massacre.

From now on, journalists, when you quote a politician offering “prayers” for the victims of gun violence, also say how much money they’ve taken from the gun makers to make that gun violence a part of our everyday reality.

That’s a rule.

Vote them out. That is all.

Never forget: Much of this is the result of deliberate political choices and could be remedied by political action. There are people responsible for what we are putting our children through. As long as America is still a democracy, vote them out. It doesn’t have to be this way! twitter.com/jaketapper/status/
