The Ultimate Flip Flop!

The Ultimate Flip Flop!

We all watched in horror the aftermath of the Parkland, FL high school shooting. We continued watching with pride when those brave young adults marched, protested and spoke up for gun control. We further gazed in amazement at the poise those same young adults showed while making their case at the White House.

We watched with bated breath all the press conferences and meetings Trump held with the victim’s parents and the surviving students who lost their friends, teachers and coaches. We saw Trump’s sympathy and vow to fix things like increase the age of those who can purchase rifles.

And then it happened. Trump, yes, the ultimate flip flop occurred. Trump had a meeting with the NRA, his cash cow. He then reversed everything that he said. He chose to side with the NRA and promote their agenda. I can’t say that I’m surprised and I hope none of you were either.

My question is this, what kind of person are you that you would put campaign contributions over the lives of innocent children? What kind of monster doesn’t care about children? Is this what our country - America – is all about? Is greed, money and power all that people care about today?

Don’t get me wrong, I do believe Americans should have the right to bear arms but they don’t have the right to use those arms to kill innocent people. Children, just like anything else in our country, should be restricted. No body under the age of 18 should be able to buy a gun. Hell, they can’t drink at 18 but they can shoot someone at 18? Does that make good sense?

Trump, get it together. Stop punking out. Govern and defend the people of this country. This country is made up of more than just white rich men. You are the president of all Americans. We all count!!!

Until next time, enjoy the journey!
