Action on guns and immigration screeches to a halt in Congress

Legislating on Capitol Hill is quickly screeching to a halt, despite loud calls for action on guns and immigration.

Even as student survivors of last month’s mass shooting at a Florida high school clamor for action on gun control and young “Dreamers” converge on Congress to protest their possible deportation, Republicans in the House are pivoting to messaging bills and away from the hot-button issues that have dominated the first two months of the year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled that his chamber would not take up gun reform this week. Instead, the Senate will take up a banking reform bill, even after President Trump challenged lawmakers to pass a sweeping background checks bill in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

On immigration, a federal court order blocking Trump’s effort to end an Obama-era program protecting Dreamers, immigrants brought into the country illegally as children, has taken the pressure off Congress to act.

    I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A RETIRED VET AT EACH CORNER OF EVERY SCHOOL HOUSE WITH AN AR 15 WITH A 30 ROUND CLIP WITH ONE EXTRA CLIP TO KEEP SOMEONE FROM ENTERING OUR SCHOOLS AND POSSIBLY SHOOTING KIDS LOADING AND UNLOADING BUSES, ALSO TEACHERS TRAINED INSIDE THE SHOOL WITH HAND GUNS.

    NOW REMOVE ALL BACKS, WHERE EXPLOSIVES CAN BE BROUGHT IN AND DOWN LOAD ALL LESSONS ON A JUMP DRIVE. MOST KIDS KNOW HOW TO USE A COMPUTOR. NOW YOU HAVE A SAFE SCHOOL. START A VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS, BET YOU HAVE ENOUGH VETS TO GET THE JOB DONE AT HARDLY NO COST.

    IF YOU WANT BLOOD SHED IN THIS COUNTRY THAT HAS NOT BEEN SEEN SINCE THE CIVIL WAR, TRY AND TAKE ALL GUNS. THE SLIENT MAJORITY WILL RISE UP AND ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE.

    CUT OUT ALL AID TO THESE PEOPLE AND WATCH THEM LEAVE ON THEIR OWN. IF THEY CANNOT SUPPORT THEIR SELF, I SURE DO NOT WANT MY TAX MONEY GOING TO THEM.

    If daca was issued by EO why can’t be ended by EO? What is good for the goose should be good for the gander. Those that blocked it are leftover from the previous administration who are still afraid to cross those no longer in authority but still own them

    Democratic officials in Broward County and FBI Deep State Traitors have an anti-2nd amendment, anti-Trump agenda that transcends patriotism, the rule of law and national security.

    The “DEEP STATE” FBI and Broward County Democrats ignored scores of actionable tips about the shooter and allowed the FALSE FLAG to happen.

    The body count to achieve their anti-2nd amendment, anti-Trump agenda is necessary collateral damage.

    Let’s discuss the Florida shooting, hypothetically.

    “Let’s say there is a CRAZY person on one side, and a SANE person on the other side and the local Sheriff and FBI, taking tips about possible threats, is sitting across from you.”

    Lay a gun in the middle on the table with a copy of the US Constitution.

    Ask this question?

    “What is most dangerous here?”

    1) The inanimate object?
    2) The US Constitution?
    3) The CRAZY person?
    4) The SANE person?

    In this case the the answer is none of the above.

    The most dangerous presence is the local Sheriff Dept. and FBI taking dozens of valid tips about the CRAZY person from the SANE person and ignoring them.
