Sarah Huckabee Sanders is trying to con the American people into believing that Trump may do something about guns.
At a time when Congress is trying to work out a deal for Dreamers and address other issues regarding our nation’s immigration system, this was especially offensive and ludicrous.
The NRA-owned president and Congress may not want to talk about guns in the aftermath of yet another mass shooting, but those in Parkland, Florida are demanding immediate action from lawmakers.
"If I thought he was going to offer something that was real, actual consolation, I'd be willing to hear more. I'm not sure what's that we would get."
"This one is the 18th school shooting just this year ... Congress has been complicit. Congress bears responsibility."
After a national tragedy, the president should speak to the American people and try to bring the country together. That's what leaders do during such moments. Not Trump.
"Since Columbine in 1999, there have been 25 fatal, active school shooting incidents at elementary and high schools in America," the Fox Host told his viewers.
As gun violence continues to rear its ugly head all across this country, the American people want to see real change, not more extremist, guns-everywhere rhetoric from the NRA.
The grieving people of Sutherland Springs were treated to the same old rhetoric that blames everything – laws, bureaucracy, and mental health – other than guns.
We can’t pray this problem away. We can’t continue to have moments of silence for thoughts and prayers and then claim to be shocked the next time tragedy strikes asking ourselves how could this have happened.
"Political survival – what? Who cares? We’re talking about the lives of the American people."
"The time is always right to do what is right. We waited too long. How many more people will die?"
Tonight, dozens of people who were alive 24 hours ago no longer are, and many of the leaders who offer their condolences will likely do nothing to prevent the next American massacre.
"This silence has become unintentional endorsement. It's become a kind of sick complicity."
Nugent said – with a straight face – that he is "100% against any harm to any human beings."
"We are a country that has a huge amount of gun violence, an internationally unparalleled level of gun violence and an internationally unparalleled frequency of multiple victim, mass shooting events."
While partisans on both sides of the aisle have been using the opportunity to point fingers and blame their political opponents for today's shooting, Clinton's message struck exactly the right tone at exactly the right time.
While Donald Trump was celebrating how easy it is for criminals to get guns at the NRA convention, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted out the names and pictures of 11 people under age 30 who died because of gun violence.
If Trump is serious about reducing violence, he should consider tightening the nation's gun laws.
