GOP chooses gun money over lives

Firearms, especially AR-style weapons, are the leading cause of death of children in our country.
I’ve heard people ask how many children have to die before we ban these kinds of weapons. I have had to come to the conclusion that Republican politicians don’t care. All they care about is the money that is flowing into their coffers from the gun lobby, the NRA and the gun manufacturers.
These politicians pretend they are upholding the Second Amendment in order to manipulate their “base,” or blame mental illness for the deaths, when it’s obvious that it’s really all about the blood money lining their pockets.
They try to make you believe that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” Sorry, but people with guns kill people.
No assault weapons allowed out in public, and no more assault weapons being sold, means much less of a chance of innocents being mowed down in a matter of seconds. Factual statistics are available. This is not rocket science.
The only thing that moral people can do is to vote these dangerous politicians out, and to vote people in who care about protecting children.
