ALERT ALL men in America. We've let our society down. We're failing our young men in this country & they're descending into madness. After recent shootings in California, Michigan, #Uvalde #Texas, young men of ALL races & backgrounds are lost. I blame us as men fathers & leaders

NRA: Constitutional opportunists who hide behind & exploit 2nd Amendment protections to avoid moral/legal culpability, & to maximize profits. In this political climate, it's literally a constitutionally protected profit machine that recirculates protection money back into the GOP

Some evidence for this statement? Doesn't seem like it'd be true, but happy to be proved wrong.
