The Columbine school shooting shocked America. As of today, it is no longer one of the 10 deadliest shootings in modern US history.
Retweeted by Aaron MarksRecall FDR, one of whose Four Freedoms was "freedom from fear" https://t.co/lYG78RMsxx https://t.co/I42K1Bu9yea more religious America (which they seem to), the "thoughts and prayers" rhetoric is counter-productiveNot saying this as a "Republican legislators should enact gun control" (though I think they should), but to say that to the extent they wantSee, e.g. "If prayers did anything" https://t.co/sTJJxkjbjmPols' reliance on "prayers" post-shootings is actually anti-religious: it creates disdain for prayer by inciting prayers-don't-work rhetoricMore dead than at Columbine. As deadly as Newtown. Will this receive as urgent a response? It's up to us. https://t.co/XSEG3x5IQBSo I broke down my tax bill under Trump's "Cut Cut Cut" proposal. My taxes won't be cut. My tax bill will quadruple.
