The NRA spent a record-breaking $30.3 million to get Trump elected

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said in a statement Monday morning that it's "time for Congress to get off its ass and do something" about gun control.

Clinton said laws should be changed to make gun makers liable for crimes committed. You do know that I'm a member of the NRA.

Jason Aldean wrote Monday night "the world is becoming a place I'm afraid to raise my kids in" and now is the time "to come together and stop the hate". "But unlike years past, this will not be an opportunity to say, you better buy guns because the president is going to confiscate them".

The massacre comes following shootings in Orlando, Florida previous year, where 49 people were killed and 58 were wounded. There is absolutely no reason for someone to have multiple weapons created to do nothing more than inflict the most harm possible. And you don't understand why it is that nobody wants to be around you, that nobody will listen to you, that nobody will vote for you. Those who don't see it as a rallying cry for real legislative attempts to prevent this from happening have already started saying it's too soon after the tragedy to talk about such a thing, which is nonsense for several reasons, including that the USA averages one mass shooting per day, with a "major" one about every two months. We have a serious problem.

She told reporters: 'Look, this is an unspeakable tragedy, today is a today for consoling the survivors and mourning those we lost. "And if that's what happens, I guess the courts will have to discern what's truly constitutional under our Second Amendment". The Brady Bill actually kept two million guns out of the hands of people who weren't supposed to have them.

Politics aside? OK Hillary. It is no longer enough to separate yourself quietly. We must learn to truly care for our fellow man, not just by lip service, but by making sure everyone has a chance to live.

Diaz-Balart has accepted $26,450 from the NRA, which has actively helped stoke the rise of white nationalism and ignored the plight of legal black gun owners like Philando Castile who are killed by police. And would they back a ban on bump-fire stocks - also called bump stocks - which retail for a few hundred bucks at the local sporting goods store? The bill would allow a person who could legally carry a handgun concealed in one state to carry it concealed in any other - effectively reducing handgun regulation to that of the state with the most lax of rules.
