Today, YouTube’s HQ outside of San Fransisco, California became the latest host to a devastating mass shooting.
Delaney Tarr, one of the student activists to rise from the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, just seized the opportunity to continue the country’s long-awaited conversation on gun violence and hit speaker Paul Ryan right where it hurts.
Hey, @SpeakerRyan, over 90% of American people support universal background checks. Sounds pretty simple to me. When are you bringing it to the floor?

“Hey, @Speaker Ryan, over 90% of American people support universal background checks,” she writes, before offering a challenge. “When are you bringing it to the floor?”
The party in control of all three branches of government stayed true to their NRA donors and have either ignored the calls of the terrified teens or gone the Laura Ingraham route and mocked the survivors – typically resulting in their tumultuous demise.
Paul Ryan, in typical spineless fashion, has offered only “thoughts and prayers” since the Parkland shooting and, as of the publication of this article, has avoided the topic of the YouTube attack all together.
Meanwhile, he has backed a bill banning the transportation of animals in overhead bins mere hours after a flight attendant made a poor choice on a United flight leaving a French bulldog dead as a result.
Of course, one can have that level of political flexibility when they aren’t on the NRA’s payroll.
Your move, Ryan.
