17 people– a dozen of them kids– are dead in another school shooting.
No one has called it a Valentine’s Day Massacre yet, but it is.
Since the Columbine shooting (in 1999), 150,000 students have experienced a shooting at their school (according to @jaketapper @CNN.)
WE LET THAT HAPPEN BY ALLOWING
@NRA TO HIJACK OUR DEMOCRACY AND BUY-OFF LAWMAKERS. — tweeted Igor Volsky

I’m not here to politicize today’s event, as some Twits are already claiming online. This is a bipartisan issue, and needs a bipartisan solution. Shootings affect everyone. #AllShootingsMatter maybe that’s our tag.
We must get money out of politics. Stop making excuses and stop being so damn greedy! Corruption is rampant in Congress and Washington. Before Bernie (Senator Sanders) preached this, Dylan Ratigan was leading this charge on CNBC. He’s still preaching the gospel of decentralizing money (his current video and new endeavors.)
The time is now. Not for more talking or praying, we need action. As honored, multiple-medal recipient former CIA agent Phil Mudd cried out on CNN this afternoon, “A child of God is dead. Can we acknowledge in this country that we cannot accept this?”
