The sheer gall of some politicians astounds me. Since the Senate failed to pass their precious gun control measures, the federal government should pay for the rebuilding of Sandy Hook elementary.
I don’t doubt that there is some “gimme some of that free fed money” involved in this. It wouldn’t work, however, without the cultural meme of the evil person salving their conscience with money.
That is how they see us. Our demand for our civil rights to be recognized is so immoral that of course we should give money out of a sense of guilt.
