A clever way to shame NRA-backed GOP
Kudos to screenwriter Bess Kalab, who is replying to “thoughts and prayers” tweets of US politicians with close ties to the gun lobby, by simply listing the the amount they have received from the National Rifle Association. GOP Senator Thom Tillis received this reply to his tweet:
Follow Bess on Twitter, and retweet her work to get the message across. There is absolutely no reason why any teenager, or adult for that matter, should be able to buy an AR-15, an assault weapon used in several mass shootings over the last year, including in the most recent high school massacre in Parkland, Florida. The GOP, and yes, even some Democrats, have blood on their hands, given that they let the assault weapons ban expire fourteen years ago, which covered the AR-15.
