19 children and 2 teachers are being buried in Uvalde, Texas this weekend; the innocent victims of another mass shooting. The National Rifle Association decided to hold their convention anyway, creating outrage and protests. Some of the entertainers cancelled out of respect for the families, others, like President Trump, spoke at the meeting. Was it right for the NRA to hold a gun convention following a mass murder of 19 children? Are they right, or evil? Do they really care about how these parents feel? Or should they have gone about business as usual? (which is what they did) Gun control is back in the news, and we’ve all heard the pundits weigh-in this week. I want to know what YOU think. I was one of the first people to go on MSNBC after the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 and debate gun control with David Corn (Mother Jones Magazine) and Michael Smerconish. (former MSNBC/current CNN host) After the show I recieved multiple death threats. Now, 10 years later, the problem is even worse. Watch this short (4-minute) video and please weigh-in on what you think is the answer. The politicians aren’t mature enough to engage in robust, respectful debate, but we certainly can. Its the only way we’re going to solve these serious issues.
