There has been a lot of discussion about the NRA’s role in the mass shooting that took place in Parkland, Florida killing 17. Like every other mass shooting in recent history, people inevitably accuse politicians of accepting the NRA’s blood money. It’s not irrelevant: the fact is that the NRA pays a tremendous amount of money to own pocket politicians.
Chelsea Handler, an open critic of anything GOP, had this in mind when she addressed a tweet to the NRA. She inquired if they could possibly take a loss in sales to prevent the deaths of innocent people. She also mentioned that their thoughts and prayers are not helpful.
The tweet was meant to call attention to the fact that a product touted for personal protection has been killing our children.
.@NRA you guys can’t forego a few million dollars in sales a year? How can you offer prayers and support without taking any action? You want to sell guns to protect people? Our children are dying in schools. Not once. Not twice. All the time. Have you no shame? When is it enough?

The brainwashed who believe all the garbage the NRA spews immediately pounced. The Handler Hatred™ is just too strong for many of her critics. Some of these tweets seriously make us reevaluate the belief that everyone has usefulness.
By the way, criminals or crazy people will always find a way to get a gun. Illegally or smash and grab or by theft. Now Chelsea try and prevent that!!!

People do things illegally all the time. It doesn’t mean that laws don’t matter. Nothing is 100 percent fool-proof.
The overwhelming majority of “gun violence” is a result of the War on Drugs and inner city gang violence. 90% of their guns are obtained outside of legal channels.

OK, great. We aren’t discussing the War on Drugs or inner cities. We are discussing kids in regular, suburban areas getting shot up while they are trying to get an education.
The entertainment world poisons these kids mind with vilolent movies, video games and music. When they try and recreate what they see and hear it is always blamed on the guns.

People watch movies and play video games every day of the year. None of the people I know have gone out on shooting sprees. This guy needs to get off his sanctimonious high horse and address the actual problem.
I have taken action, my gun is right beside me. You come into my house ready for sh*t your gonna find it. If the school had been prepared for him, one teacher could have ended it before it got it got mean. Parenting could have avoided this from the get go. Democrat parenting NOT

We are tired of the good guys with guns argument. It’s bullshit. The thing is the shooter is already prepared. Those guards will be dead before they get a chance to pull their holstered, safety-locked guns. These people accuse gun-control proponents of not using common sense, but their logic is flawed, at best.
We always save the
best most disgusting tweet for last:

This. It’s always this. Maybe we should try calling schools uteruses so these assholes will be concerned about the children inside.
Handler has a valid point. The NRA is responsible for all the anti-gun propaganda they perpetuate to keep their members paranoid. They are also responsible for the millions of dollars they sink into campaigns, effectively buying our lawmakers. Some gun owners will never see the problem clearly because when it comes down to it, their rights are the only ones that matter.
