Ever since seventeen children were tragically killed and another sixteen injured last month in yet another school shooting at Marjorie Stoneman-Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the nation has been embroiled in a national debate which has been amplified by the survivors of that tragic event.
A new NBC poll released Thursday morning should be a wakeup call to the NRA and its supporters in Washington, including President Trump. Most people think that putting more guns in schools is a really bad idea.

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.

A satisfied gun lobby that keeps raking in the dough means GOP campaign coffers remain full going into next year's midterm elections. Apparently, everything else is irrelevant.
