NRA posts mocking tweet in response to National School Walkout Day

NRA posts mocking tweet in response to National School Walkout Day

The US has an epidemic of gun crime.

It's a fiercely debated idea amid requests for stricter gun laws from student survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting.

Beyond the psychological trauma such attacks inflict, these shootings have a profound effect on academic success rates. The failure of Congress to correct even the most obvious and egregious flaw in USA gun regulation, the background-check loophole that enables pretty much anyone who wants to evade a background check to do so, has been the high-water mark of cynicism since even before the 2012 massacre of schoolchildren and teachers in Newtown, Connecticut.

It turns out some member of Congress might not be the only ones in Washington who are "petrified" of the National Rifle Association.

Yes, once again Trump's courageous words prove to be meaningless as the White House unveils exactly what Trump wants to do about guns.

In the piece, the three also pledge to support companies that have cut ties with the NRA or changed their gun-sale policies, a growing list in the weeks since the Florida shooting. A breathtaking 2012 series by the Tampa Bay Times on the state's Stand Your Ground law depicted dozens of shootings in which the killer went free merely by claiming, in full accord with the law, that he felt "threatened" in some way before opening fire. They announced Sunday night they would help train schoolteachers to carry guns, a proposal plucked straight from the NRA, and they'd endorse a Republican-led bill that reinforces the background check system but doesn't expand it. You can't talk when the other side is totally unspooled.

But murdered kids are political. Pat Toomey on the bill he pushed after the Sandy Hook tragedy five years ago. In a matter of minutes, the school joined "a club that no one wants to be part of", Hanlon says.

The divide over how to respond has left young people like Alexia Medero wondering if change will ever come.

In a series of tweets published Monday morning, the USA president has raised several reasons for this flip-flop, strongly criticized by many elected Democrats and advocates for better gun control. The package of measures is aimed at making schools safer after a string of deadly shootings, it said. Last year, he appeared at the N.R.A.'s national convention and reaffirmed his support for the group's twisted reading of the Second Amendment.

Since then, the one major piece of gun legislation in the United States, in spite of the national rise in mass and school shootings, has been an act created to protect gun manufacturers in 2005. If a G.O.P. -controlled Congress refused to do anything in 2013, after twenty first graders were shot in Newtown, Connecticut, why, in 2018, would a G.O.P. -controlled Congress act any differently in response to the Parkland massacre?

With midterm elections quickly approaching, these statements and the upcoming marches in support of gun control are all disconcerting for pro-gun rights politicians with N.R.A. affiliations. He added that an effort to bar bump stock devices was coming and that "Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to hide carry, subject to State Law".

With the 51-49 Republican majority in the U.S. Senate, the powerful congressional influence of the N.R.A., and simply our country's own history surrounding gun-related issues - the odds still seem fairly stacked against the recent public outcry for gun control action.

Walmart expands home grocery delivery service
The company added that it was gaining more new customers who might otherwise not have had any access to a Walmart previously. The retailer employs more than 18,000 personal shoppers that power the program with thousands more being added this year.

Additionally, is this conducive to a successful school environment?

To make a long story short, I got out of the NRA because I could see where they were headed.

Whether these efforts are successful or not will depend largely on whether they are sustained.

Again, the gun lobby has put up barriers to real action.

"Could the NRA be more despicable?" actress Mia Farrow tweeted out.

However, the gun lobby has not faced a political force like this before.

Team officials said Irving, who had seven points in 16 minutes against in , had left knee soreness and was not returning. Letting the injury heal naturally would likely take a month or so, while surgery would involve a three-month timetable.

Without strong advocacy from the White House, an ambitious gun package was unlikely to even get off the ground, given most Republicans' opposition to any new restrictions.
