Dear Florida Gun Fighters. Prepare for the NRA Hammer!
These people know that you are angry and upset so they will let you “vent” your feelings. They will express their deepest sympathy and offer sincere thoughts and prayers for your dead classmates and teachers. They will look like they are listening to you. They are not. They will be waiting to talk. They will answer you in a way that will slow you down and appease you, but not upset the powerful gun lobby and their followers. The politicians won’t deny your requests right away. They might set up a commission to look into the problem, they might even ask you to be on it! They will have “solutions” such as:
- Raising the age of people who can get rifles and 3 day waiting periods for rifles
- More funding for mental health services
Then they will talk about the only answer that the NRA, and their passionate voting base, deem acceptable; more guns.
