Republican Politicians Want Kids Dead

[Content Note: Gun violence.]

That is the only reasonable conclusion I can reach when they flatly refuse to even entertain the possibility of meaningful gun reform, no matter how many children are slaughtered across this nation.

Here, for example, is Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick saying that today's shooting may have been caused by Texas schools having "too many entrances and too many exits," because their proffered solutions are becoming increasingly ridiculous as it has been made patently obvious the only thing that will stem this tide of wanton murder is reducing access to guns.

If Republican leaders don't want me to believe that they want kids dead, then they can withdraw their heads from the NRA's ass and start proposing rational solutions to this problem.
