Thank you for this, Steven. Your article was the appropriate handling of this heart-breaking topic, and your middle finger was also pointed appropriately at the complicit politicians. Until they lose one of their own, they won’t get it.

Then, Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott pointed his finger at FBI Director Christopher Wray for the Valentine’s Day shooting of 17 students and staff at a Parkland, Florida high school and had the gall to call for his resignation.

Rick Scott is this guy: He’s championed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), with an “A+ rating.” In 2014, the NRA’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) praised Scott, stating “Rick has signed more pro-gun bills into law in one term than any other governor in Florida history.”
