Make no mistake, the president is taking this long American epidemic of gun murder to heart. He argued that the legal age for buying an assault rifle should be raised from 18 to 21. He got a lot of flack from the NRA for this draconian proposal, but so far he hasn’t backed down. It’s been almost 24 hours.
I feel so much better now knowing that the president is fighting to keep American school children safe. Not sure I agree that more guns in the schools is the best answer to protecting kids from death by gunshot, a position the president shares with the NRA, but that’s what makes a democracy, I guess.
I also loved what the president said the other day: “you come into our schools, you’re gonna be dead, and it’s gonna be fast.”
