Let's face facts: President Trump does not want the assault rifles banned, as he is in bed with the NRA. He has been bought and paid for. Our Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst is another senator bought and paid for by the NRA. As is our Chuck Grassley. The NRA owns their votes. So nothing will be done about outlawing these weapons of murder. Arm the teachers? That is not the answer. Why does he want to turn our schools into a war zone?

Why does he wish to add to the problem instead of fixing the obvious solution? Why? Because he is owned as is our congress by the NRA!.

When the next terrible slaughter occurs, and it will, it is the NRA who has blood of innocent victims dripping from their hands.
