The totally needless killing of 19 school children and 2 teachers in the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas shows once again that we're a nation on the verge of total disaster. Republicans refuse to get on board with Democrats and enact essential gun reforms despite most Americans clamoring for them. Indeed, it seems schools will have to change their name to Uterus if Republicans will start regulating guns.
Never a stranger to controversy and nailing hypocritical Republicans, Jimmy Kimmel began his show without an audience on Wednesday and delivered a poignant monologue about the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Kimmel blasted feckless Republicans by saying most Americans support common-sense gun laws, but the legislation stalled “because our cowardly leaders just aren’t listening to us ― they’re listening to the NRA.”
“If your solution to children being massacred is armed guards, you haven’t been paying attention to what’s going on,” Kimmel said. “There was an armed guard in Buffalo. There was an armed guard in Parkland. There was an armed guard in Uvalde.”
