@afisher - Who said I believed him? . . . just pointing out what the man said. Voters never hold the  GOP accountable, no reason to think that will change.

 

Maybe you should try smoking something, it might calm you down. Cat Wink

Oh, you bet, Dan Patrick came loaded with ideas to protect schools.

 

His first rattle out of the box, immediately following the tragedy was parents must keep their guns and ammo locked up so that their kids or others cannot get to them. Well duh . . . 

 

So c'mon Dan, what else ya got . . . Schools have too many entrances and exits to cover. Yes Dan, some of the campuses are very large and spread out among several buildings. I get it, you want everyone to check in through a main entrance. And how do we do that?  Schools should stagger arrival / departure times of students. Bet parents will like that notion. 

 

And of course, the ever popular . . . Let's arm those teachers.

 

Seriously, perhaps there is a way to more carefully screen arrivals on campus with the proper funding, equipment, and personnel. This will have to be a major budget hurdle since Texas has been extremely stingy with money for funding education, much less school security. 

 

Gov Abbott is set to convene a round table this week to address school safety. He actually mentioned addressing mental health issues, keeping guns from those who shouldn't have them, and stronger background checks. So will he follow through? Will the state of Texas hold him and others accountable? They haven't in the past.

Well of course "moronic GOP platitudes" - that's the best those top of the cesspool GOPers have ever had the capacity to utter...

 

It's GOP liars "splaining it" to the not-too-bright trump foolowers that faithfully believe trump, their bots, and GOP liars...

Yes isn't it sad the kids are taking to the streets to defend themselves because they feel the adults aren't doing enough, esp. the Government.
Our Government , Country should be so ashamed to see these kids taking to the streets to defend themselves. These images go around the World and they DO NOT care, $$ speaks louder than words and now louder than pictures or video. Shame on them.

Parents Of School Shooting Victims Decry ‘Moronic’ GOP Platitudes

 

“For [Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick] to be making those moronic comments? Unacceptable.”

 

Two parents who lost children to campus gun violence had strong words of criticism on Sunday for the GOP’s continued dismissal of responding with tougher firearm control measures and more emphasis on preventing shootings.  

 

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Parkland, Florida, in February, joined Nicole Hockley, whose son Dylan was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012, to speak with host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

 

Both parents voiced their disappointment with Republican politicians for ignoring the topic of gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, on Friday in which 10 people died. 

Guttenberg and Hockley spoke shortly after Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) appeared on the talk show and blamed the most recent school shooting on American culture, saying that “we have devalued life.” 

 

“I think those are the most idiotic comments I’ve ever heard regarding gun safety,” Guttenberg said in response to Patrick.

 

 

Looks like the blame abortion and violent video games line didn't work, how about if we blame Ritlian, no that won't work, maybe we didn't hope and pray enough, maybe more thoughts for the victims?

 

I have an idea .......... how about if we start taking steps to do something about guns. if those steps don't work take bigger steps, go after the problem until we think we've done the best we can do to manage the problem.

 

Australia style gun control if that's what it takes.

 

Because no question about it, we have a problem that is killing our kids, now are we adults, are we going to protect the children, or is it up to children to protect themselves?
