The NRA Doesn’t Care About School Safety (CARTOON)
Matt | On 02, Apr 2013
This cartoon aptly describes where we are with the gun violence debate in Congress right about now.
Since the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting on December 14, lawmakers had pushed for a tough assault weapons ban. However, the powerful lobby of the National Rifle Association (NRA) was able to derail that progress as much as possible by weakening the proposed ban. What they have left is a trail of excuses and overlooking the mass murder of 20 children and countless others since the shooting.
In Congress, money and power talk. Our children have been pimped in the name of votes and “freedom with guns.” Go figure. *sigh*
