How many of your state representatives received campaign funds from the NRA in return for more lenient gun regulations? Do you have children? Will you continue to let this be their norm? Or only when it happens to someone you know will you finally realize that something needs to change? 💔
Americans make up about 4.4 percent of the global population but own 42 percent of the world’s guns. From 1966 to 2012, 31 percent of the gunmen in mass shootings worldwide were American according to a 2015 study by Adam Lankford a professor at the University of Alabama. In the rest of the world there have been 18 mass shootings in the last 20 years, in the USA, there have been 18 school shootings since January 1, 2018. This is madness. There may be plenty blame to go around, but right now I am focusing on voting out the #NRA bought politicians by any means necessary. #MarcoRubio took $3,303,355.00 from the NRA. Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed more pro-gun bills into law in one term than any other governor in Florida history- NRA gives him an A+ rating. The AR-15 recovered in this shooting is almost identical to what American troops carry in combat. Why the hell does a civilian have access to this weapon-LEGALLY? The shooter bought this killing machine legally!The AR-15 can be obtained in Florida more easily than a handgun. The NRA has corrupted the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment and the GOP are allowing mass shootings to be normalized. The United States has 270 Million guns and has 90 mass shooters from 1996-2012. No other country has more than 46 Million guns or 18 mass shooters (Source, NYTimes via Adam Lankford, The University of Alabama and Small Arms Survey) PLEASE register to VOTE! Make your voice heard.
