Sunday Funday: Parkland Memorial Edition

Very sad to remember that a year ago this coming Thursday it will be a year since the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Florida. One good thing this week is that Democrats in control of the House  have convened the first hearings on gun reform to take place in eight years. While many folks cite the statistic that over 30,000 Americans lose their lives to guns every year, don’t forget that over 100,000 are injured by guns yearly. These are people whose lives are often shattered. Many end up on medicaid and some kind of government aid through no fault of their own.

Below is a video of one of the biggest jerks in the congress – no the country – Matt Gaetz of Florida who tried to hijack the gun reform hearing to try to blame all of America’s ills on immigrants. In the audience were two of the parents of students of MSDHS who died a year ago. 

Even Dear Leader would have a hard time beating that jerkiness – whoops I forgot about his mockery of the disabled.
