The White House just took action to cover up how Trump enabled yesterday’s shooter

In the aftermath of yesterday’s Florida school shooting that killed 17, the White House refused media requests for a February 2017 photo of Trump signing a bill overturning H.J. Resolution 40, an Obama-era regulation restricting mentally ill people from buying guns.

Trump blamed “neighbors and classmates” for not reporting the shooter, even though teachers in fact banned him from carrying a backpack

Missouri third-graders sell AR-15 raffle tickets after Florida students are gunned down with similar weapon

A group of third graders in Missouri has been asked to sell raffle tickets for an AR-15 military-style assault weapon after a similar gun was used in a mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Community baseball team coach Levi Patterson told The Kansas City Star that the decision to sell raffle tickets was made before the shooting that killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The weapon was reportedly donated by the co-founder of Black Rain Ordnance Inc., who is the father of one of the players.

Patterson told the paper that he initially considered raffling a different item after the mass shooting, but he changed his mind after receiving criticism from what he called a “hate group” on Facebook. After that, Patterson said that he decided to turn the AR-15 raffle “into a positive thing.”

Republican Rigging Part 26: Citizenship Suppression

Courtesy Exit.al

Written by Robert Warden

There is something that many of us may have never even considered, but I think it is part of the long-term Republican strategy of tilting the system in their favor. Not only do they not want nonwhite citizens to vote: They don’t want them to become citizens in the first place.

Last week, my stepdaughter’s fiance, who is from mainland China and has legal residency status, was called in to do an interview to determine whether he can continue to be a U.S. resident. This was all rather sudden and has caused a lot of problems. He wanted to get married right away, before the interview to ensure that he could stay, but Isabella wasn’t ready and there was no planning, so she told him to wait. Meanwhile, advisors said that a sudden marriage before an interview would invoke suspicion. Steven was never bothered about his residency status when Obama was president. (Steven still does not know the results of the interview, as the process may take several weeks.) Such actions are apparently part of a larger plan to limit immigration, legal or otherwise, by wutzizname’s administration and the Republican Party. Of course, it could just be a coincidence that Steven had to justify his presence in the United States so recently, and it could also be a coincidence that our healthcare plan was cancelled shortly after wutzizname became president and we were forced to buy more expensive insurance, but I doubt it.

Want to See Gun Control Enacted? Support a Movement to Arm Black Folks En Masse

The only greater certainty than another mass shooting in this country is the likelihood that it will be met with inaction. Since the 2012 massacre of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, there have been a staggering 1,607 mass shootings across the U.S., nearly 240 in schools. Each has been met with useless thoughts and prayers from craven conservative politicians, all of whom insist there’s never a right time to discuss gun control. The fatigue incurred from the whole circular spectacle makes it feel like it might just be easier to start labeling lawmakers either “pro-child murder” or “anti-child murder.”
