Trump blames democrats for not passing gun control laws

Donald Trump took to Twitter to blame democrats amid demands from survivors and parents for gun control reform following the high school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that took 17 lives on Feb. 14.

"Just like they don’t want to solve the DACA problem, why didn’t the Democrats pass gun control legislation when they had both the House & Senate during the Obama Administration. Because they didn’t want to, and now they just talk!" Trump tweeted on Saturday evening.

Trump casting blame on democrats is insensitive and inappropriate, considering he has yet to address his own responsibility in the matter. Indeed, in February 2017 Trump signed an executive order to reverse an Obama-era regulation which would have required the Social Security Administration to submit quarterly documentation of those with mental disorders to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System which is the database used to determine if someone can buy a firearm. The ACLU did oppose this regulation, but not because it wanted more guns in America, but because the organization believed “adding more innocent Americans to the National Instant Criminal Background database because of a mental disability is a disturbing trend.”

My post from another thread...

Utter bullshit, just more vapid whataboutism, there is a clear history of who has blocked every effort to rein in gun violence, and the GOP is on the wrong side every fucking time.

you'd think that would be the most next logical thing on Trump's twitter rant. But, he just left us all hangin.

Supporting gun control legislation would be a losing proposition for many Democrats as well as Republicans. If our congressional representatives don't even come close to supporting the majority position among their constituents, then they'll be voted out of office.

That being said, the GOP is obviously the favorite political party of the NRA.

Republicans have had the house, senate and executive branch for over a year now. Does the POS not know how government works? That was a rhetorical question. Of course he doesn't.
