America’s relationship with guns is ridiculously unhealthy.

America is not a war zone, and we shouldn’t expect our citizens to live like it is.

The scene outside of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on the morning 10/27/2018. 11 people were killed and 6 more were wounded (including 4 police officers) by a domestic terrorist who had announced his intent to kill on social media before attacking the synagogue. Witnesses reported hearing him say “All Jews must die!” before he opened fire. Trump’s solution? Blame the victims for not taking deadly weapons to their place of holy worship.
