(from bookwormroom.com)
It’s incredible that with every shooting, the Left, from politicians to sycophantic “news reporters,” start clamoring for “gun control”. The dead victims are not yet in their graves and those who survived have not even exited the operating rooms.

Guns!! Guns!! [sic]”, wrote Le...
