    There are now so many hundreds of shootings every day, it's getting increasingly difficult for Trump and Republican Congressmen to find enough time during their busy workdays to offer "thoughts and prayers" for all the victims.

    Two boys, 11 and 14, shot dead while sitting in a van at an elementary school parking lot in Union City

    Another shooting at a Navy base – and Trump has already tweeted that his "thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families." In reality, Trump's thoughts are with the NRA, which donates huge amounts of money to his campaigns and which opposes any and all gun legislation. Trump and Republican Congressmen are completely in the thrall of the NRA and do the NRA's bidding. So......."thoughts and prayers," nothing more.

    Emperor Trump refused to hold Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman accountable for ordering the brutal 2018 murder of American journalist Jamal Khashoggi. After a Saudi national killed three and wounded eight at a Florida naval base, Trump was quick to assure bin Salman that the US-Saudi relationship would remain strong. Trump admires powerful dictators such as Kim, Duterte, Erdogan, Putin and bin Salman – because that is how he sees himself.

    For Trump, instinct after Florida killings is simple: Protect Saudis

    I can answer Chief Acevedo's question: Republican Congressmen care about guns and the NRA. Republicans and the NRA persuaded the Supreme Court to re-interpret the Second Amendment so instead of a "well-regulated militia," everybody in America is free to own an unlimited number of guns and high-capacity ammo magazines. Shooting victims and their families get nothing but empty, meaningless "thoughts and prayers" from the Republicans who are puppets of the NRA and do the NRA's bidding. That means no limits and no restrictions on anyone's right to own lots of lovely, beautiful, precious guns.

    Houston police chief criticizes McConnell and Senate Republicans over guns: 'Whose side are you on?'
    Chandelis Duster, CNN, Dec 9 2019 4:13 PM

    Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo today criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican lawmakers for not reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act and taking action against gun violence, asking them in emotional remarks to choose between the nation's foremost gun lobby and "the children that are getting gunned down in this country every single day."

    Acevedo made his remarks to reporters as the Houston Police Department prepared to escort the body of Sgt. Chris Brewster, an officer who died in the line of duty, to a funeral home. The 32-year-old was shot and killed while responding to a call with a team on Saturday. "I don't want to hear about how much they support law enforcement," Acevedo said. "I don't want to hear about how much they care about lives and the sanctity of lives. We all know in law enforcement that one of the biggest reasons that the Senate and Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn and Ted Cruz and others are not getting into a room and having a conference committee with the House and getting the Violence Against Women's Act passed is because the NRA doesn't like the fact that we want to take firearms out of the hands of boyfriends that abuse their girlfriends. And who killed our sergeant? A boyfriend abusing his girlfriend. So you're either here for women and children and our daughters and our sisters and our aunts or you're here for the National Rifle Association."

    He continued: "So I don't want to see their little smug faces talking about how much they care about law enforcement when I'm burying a sergeant because they don't want to piss off the NRA. Make up your minds, whose side are you on? Gun manufacturers, the gun lobby or the children that are getting gunned down in this country every single day?"
