Student Chris Grady asks Senator Marco Rubio, “Would you agree that there is no place in our society for large capacity magazines?”

“I traditionally have not su...pported re-looking at magazine clip size, and after this and some of the details I learned about it, I am reconsidering that position,” the Florida Republican says.

Rick Scott was to be a headline speaker at this year’s NRA's 2018 Leadership Forum in Dallas. As of 2/19, days after the deadly Parkland shooting, Rick’s ugly mug was still featured on the site as a speaker. I suppose he had a sudden realization that...

This is your movement ... Don't let the 'adults' and politicians get in your way. We, as adults, have dropped the ball. You can be the change ... You can do it!

A Wonkette Public Service Announcement for the teens of America!

"Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action" will air live on Wednesday, February 21 at 9 p.m., ET.

The school shooting in Florida this week has sparked a renewed call for lawmakers to take action, and some of the loudest voices demanding change are not even old enough to vote.

I believe there should be a 'Never Again' chapter in every state and in every high school. We need to support the young people who are leading this movement. The NRA gun lobby is powerful, but if all young people and their parents and grandparents support 'Never Again', they will change the country so there will be no more mass shootings. We all have the right to LIVE. I also support the second amendment, but enough is enough!

Run by survivors of the Stoneman Douglas shooting. We are sick of the Florida lawmakers choosing money from the NRA over our safety. #NeverAgain

Former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) has joined a growing far-right smear campaign against the students who survived last week’s massacre in a Parkland, Florida high school.

The GOP and the NRA should go suck on a gun.

I see the problem ... just fix it ...

While Florida has a three-day waiting period for handgun purchases, anyone with a clean record can buy military-style semiautomatic rifles in a matter of minutes.

Thank You!

"It was not a progressive tax bill, it was a regressive tax bill," Gates said of the GOP tax plan.
The NRA is more concerned about keeping gun lobby and Russian money flowing in, rather than protecting our rights, and our children's lives.

They are coming after the disabled on all fronts and I don't see many posts from my progressive friends. Seems everybody just scrolls right by, kind of like looking at the disabled in public.

It is the sign of how civilized a people are by how they treat those weaker than themselves. Americans are falling way short and Christians...don't get me started.

You all are one illness or accident or gun shot away from being disabled yourself.

It was one of the world's largest mandatory gun buybacks — and it was a smashing success.

AR15's are military weapons of mass destruction ...

Tim Alden commented on a link.

There have always been angry young men who have been expelled by their high schools (think of Fonzi in Happy Days). The difference now is these troubled people ...have easy access to military style weapons that were only invented to kill as many people as possible in a short period of time. Ultimately, the US Congress is responsible for ignoring these more and more frequent massacres. Those that take money from the NRA have blood on their hands, again, this morning. The very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Stop the insanity; do something different. Ban those weapons from civilian use! Limit magazine capacity! Yes, this means you might have to give up some cherished freedom, but the balence has been too lopsidded for too long. Just as we're not allow to own machine guns, hand grenades, or RPG rockets, we should not have access to assault weapons. Period.

REPUGS and the NRA should feel proud ... NOT!

This interactive shows the locations and stories of these tragic events.

One year ago, after only five weeks in Power, President Trump signed legislation to allow persons being treated for mental illness, to purchase firearms. February 28, 2017.

The new law nullifies an Obama-backed rule that added people with mental illnesses to the national background check database.
