President Trump floated a couple of ideas yesterday after calls to “do something” about school shootings have been made. Dem Rep. Brian Schatz wants something done, but not THAT kind of something:
Eliminating gun free school zones and arming teachers is literally insane and based on the NRA business model that the solution to gun violence is to sell more guns.

Forget the ridiculousness of the term “gun violence” for a moment (do they say “truck violence,” “knife violence” or “bomb violence” after non-gun related attacks?). When Dems say “do something” they’re only talking about one thing: Banning guns and ending the political influence of the NRA and its members (Read: THEY don’t deserve the right of free speech like Planned Parenthood does).
This is also completely backwards:
The NRA doesn’t work for gun owners. They work for gun sellers.

If he wants to know who’s helping sell guns in record numbers he should go look in the mirror. Between a run on guns and NRA memberships, firearm dealers and the NRA should be giving Democrats a sales commission.
Too bad the Dems’ goal in all this isn’t to actually solve any problem but to attempt to gain political advantage by painting millions of people as being complicit in mass murder. I don’t think they’re going to find that to be a winning argument in the midterms.
