Trump Finally Addresses a Lack of Gun Control After the Florida Massacre

Trump Finally Addresses a Lack of Gun Control After the Florida Massacre”

The president had three things to say on Twitter about the Parkland school shooting in the 18 hours after it occurred.

According to Everytown for Gun Safety, 34 percent of the mass shootings that occurred between January 2009 and December 2016 were committed by those considered to be "prohibited possessors" - or people who are unable to purchase guns due to their age, criminal conviction (s), history of addiction, a domestic abuse conviction or a person who has been "adjudicated as a mental defective" or been admitted to a mental institution.

But you really need to take a look at yourself as a country, as a government with a gung-ho approach to how you deal with the world, and your own people because nothing lasts forever. "We must reverse these trends". And not one damn thing will be done about it. A secretive, Russian technology company, the Internet Research Agency, sought to "sow discord in the United States political system". We need to use social media to expose them. This line of thought is outdated, dangerous, and covers up the overwhelming resistance to gun control measures under the Trump administration.

Gun control advocates disagree, calling for legislation that would prevent potential mass murderers from getting their hands on firearms built to kill.

In the 2017 Pew data, for example, there was a 25 percentage point gap between the Democrats (16%) who owned guns and the Republicans (41%) who did. But they won't give you any more political power, just because they're nothing but an insult to the people you need to swing to your side: rural voters who grew up around guns and still use them, but who could be persuaded to think it's insane for madmen to be able to buy assault rifles.

CNN's Harry Enten wrote Wednesday that you shouldn't expect much from Congress in the wake of this (or any) shooting since the issue of guns is one of the most polarizing and misunderstood. If someone has chose to commit an act of terrorism, they'll find a way to do it.

Democrats will press for greater funding for psychological services through public and private insurance programmes. NY magazine documented the ways in which they believe the Trump administration and Congress have actually tried to make it easier for certain groups to buy guns over the past year.

In addition, more than $61 million in NRA money has gone to back current members of Congress, most of which benefited Republicans. Then you'll see most Republican lawmakers vote against expanded gun control measures.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, a Republican turned Democrat, suggested state and federal legislation that would allow law enforcement to submit individuals suspected of violent tendancies to mandatory mental evaluation and possible involuntary confinement.

Danielle McLaughlin: The vast majority of Americans support stricter gun control laws, including universal background checks and restrictions based on mental health.

For the most part, the GOP has sought to take advantage of having an ally in the White House, attempting to loosen gun laws at a breakneck pace over the past 12 months.

Although Mr Trump's speech, heavy on platitudes, leaned into his role as consoler-in-chief, he did promise one concrete action. Schools must be a safe space for all students & teachers, not the scenes of tragedy.

What could come of this meeting is anyone's guess, of course. "Why can you enter a school with one?"

Now if you support gun control, such memes might make you feel good. "Simply a matter of will". The Virginia Tech massacre was just two years old when Democrats assumed power in 2009, which also happened to be the 10th anniversary of the Columbine shootings. And when police arrived at the scene, they had to clear the building classroom by classroom. Men are more likely to own guns than women.

After announcing his plan for a meeting, Mr Trump issued a challenge. "We must actually make that difference". It is the 18th U.S. school shooting of 2018. The question, then, is whether this time will be different.
