Re: Florida High School Shooting and Gun Control

I've seen and heard nothing that suggests to me that any of the politicians are in any way going to do anything substantive to change the situation. What was Trump's best effort? "Possibly ban devices which turn rifles into automatics? Worthless. Rubio? " Thinking about changing my positio...

Politicians told so many lies over so many years that the US public turned against them and voted for a guy who said he'd "drain the swamp".
