Trump to headline gun celebration

Day after tomorrow.

Former president Donald Trump will headline a forum at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Houston this Friday — about a four-hour drive from where a shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Tex., killed at least 19 children and two teachers on Tuesday.

Trump said Wednesday he would keep the appearance, in a post on his Truth Social platform.

Yeah he’s a tough guy, he’s not gonna let other people’s agony stop him dancing on the graves of a bunch of kids.

The Memorial Day weekend event is the year’s largest for the gun lobby meeting after cancellations due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s set to take place over three days and “showcase over 14 acres of the latest guns and gear,” according to its official website.

What are guns as consumer items for? They’re not primarily for shooting game, so what are they for? What do people need assault rifles for?

Overthrowing the government, I guess – that would be one item. “Self-defense” – like blowing away that guy jogging through the neighborhood because hey it’s a white neighborhood and he’s not white so he must be there to steal your stuff.

The forum is also slated to include Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, South Dakota Gov. Kristi L. Noem, and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson — all Republicans. The next night, “American Pie” singer Don McLean is due to perform.

Cruz tweeted Tuesday that he was “fervently lifting up in prayer the children and families in the horrific shooting in Uvalde.”

Yeah see that does no good. That’s worthless. Fuck that. Nobody wants your fervent lifting up in prayer bullshit. What we need is for you and the rest of those ruthless bloodthirsty fucks to stop blocking gun control laws. That’s it. Just your job.
