Not that he really wields any clout, but just two days ago, LGBTQ traitor Milo Yiannopoulos called on Trump supporters to “gun journalists down” in a wild call to silence the voices of those trying to hold Trump accountable for his heinous actions.
Since this is America, and guns have more rights than people, it seems some gun-loving “patriot” has heeded his word, as authorities are currently on-site in Annapolis, Maryland, responding to a shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom.

This particular piece of information will undoubtedly be pounced on by gun-lovers across the country, as the primary focus of gun reform advocates is the control of the manufacture and sale of military-style assault rifles, such as the AR-15 which ended 17 lives in Parkland, Florida, and countless others prior to the 2018 incident which sparked a nationwide movement for reform.
At this point, the nuance of what type of gun is not important. The fact of the matter is more people have died because of the unfettered access Americans have to guns, in spite of a mass-call to change our reality.
In spite of that call to action, the Republican-controlled Senate and Congress have remained mute on the issue. Survivors of the Parkland massacre have created the #MarchforOurLives and are currently on a cross-country bus trip registering people to vote by the thousands, hoping to oust NRA-backed politicians to get the conversation on gun reform moving forward and prevent days like today from happening again.
As the country waits for the November election, more lives have been lost thanks to the greed of the NRA – and while we don’t know for sure at this point, it’s likely that the President’s constant demonization of the “fake news media” as “enemies of the state” played a role in this horrible tragedy, and he must be held equally accountable.
This is a breaking news story that will be updated as new information emerges.
