Father of Parkland Shooting Victim Slams Ted Cruz as 'Miserable Liar' After NRA Posts Video of Cruz Slandering Democrats
The National Rifle Association partnered with Republican Senator from Texas Ted Cruz at the start of this year to spew false and alarmist claims about Democrats.
The NRA shared a video of Cruz on Twitter falsely claiming that Democrats wanted to "take your freedom" for wanting assault weapons regulated differently than 18th century muskets.
Republican Senator Just Got Shouted Down at Her Own Town Hall for Saying Mass Shootings Are a 'Mental Health' Issue
It's been two weeks since two horrific mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas resulted in the deaths of 31 people, but Americans' calls for common sense gun reform haven't relented.
This is most recently evident at an Iowa town hall for Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA). Ernst, who is up for reelection in 2020, has an A-rating from the National Rifle Association and received a nearly $10 thousand donation during her 2014 senate campaign.
The United States continues to mourn in the wake of two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio that occurred 13 hours apart and resulted in a total of 31 deaths.
The shooter responsible for the 22 of those deaths at a shopping center in El Paso published a manifesto minutes before the shooting, featuring anti-immigrant sentiments similar to those of President Donald Trump and his supporters.
Mitch McConnell's Campaign Is Getting Called Out for Its Morbid Display of Gravestones With Political Foes' Names on Them
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) campaign is in hot water for tweeting a photo of tombstones featuring the names of McConnell's rivals only hours after a white supremacist murdered 22 people in El Paso, Texas.
The cardboard tombstones were erected at the 2019 Fancy Farm event, where McConnell made an appearance. They feature the names of McConnell's 2020 senate challenger Amy McGrath as well as Judge Merrick Garland, whom McConnell unconstitutionally stonewalled from ascending to the Supreme Court after former President Barack Obama appointed him to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
