Sometimes Republicans say such ridiculous things that you wonder if they are kidding or not. Usually, though, they are deadly serious, and often put forth proposed solutions to our problems that are nothing short of preposterous.
Fred Guttenberg, father of Jaime Guttenberg who was murdered in the Parkland school shooting on February 14th, begged people not to forget so easily and to make this election a single issue election.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is trying to con the American people into believing that Trump may do something about guns.
Trump supporters have long lost the right to criticize anybody – comedians or otherwise – for rhetoric they deem untasteful or incendiary.
Vice President Pence will be delivering a speech at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting this Friday, and because law dictates that his life is apparently more important than everyone else’s, the association has banned members from bringing firearms, knives, and all sorts of other weapons to his speaking engagement.
Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) showed up at a meeting with constituents and placed a loaded gun on the table in front of him in what was a clear intimidation tactic designed to silence those who are calling for gun law reform.
The Trump administration set forth his plan to combat school shootings. Unfortunately it contains one of the dumbest ideas ever proposed in Washington, D.C.: he wants the federal government to help states pay for gun training for teachers.
Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg told Trump to forget destroying the economy with a tariff, but to place a tax on gun purchases.
Hey @realDonaldTrump how about instead of destroying our economy through tariffs on steel and aluminum you place a tax on firearm sales that is used to harden schools, create new manufacturing jobs and save lives? #guntax
The White House has announced that Trump will be publicly meeting with video game manufacturers on the issue on the issue of gun violence, not the NRA,

But something that we’re going to continue to be engaged in and continue to look for the best way possible to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect schools across the country.”

If Republicans want to hold onto their jobs, they need to act on gun violence. If not, voters will act accordingly.
Dozens of U.S. colleges and universities, including at least three Ivy League schools, have said their application processes will not consider disciplinary action taken against high school students who protest last week's massacre at a Florida school.
Arming everyone used to be a joke concept. It was a concept that TV racist know-nothing Archie Bunker pushed to great laughter. Trump’s plan to arm teachers to stop school shootings sounds exactly like Archie Bunker's plan to stop airplane hijacking by arming all passengers.
The president should stop listening to the NRA and start listening to those directly impacted by this violence – students and teachers. They don't want more guns in their classrooms; they want fewer.
NBC’s Chuck Todd showed how the NRA is going to desperate lengths and throwing out every conservative buzzword that they can think of to distract from guns.
