It seems some politicians are more concerned about getting an “A” from the National Rifle Association than protecting innocent people. My question for them is: “What kind of grade do you think God is going to give you when you die?”
Just as some leaders in the Catholic Church were more concerned about protecting the Church and their position than protecting children from sexual abuse, many politicians are more concerned about keeping their jobs with the money they receive from the NRA than protecting our children from gun violence.
The NRA doesn’t really care about the 2nd Amendment. They take advantage of the 2nd Amendment to profit themselves. They have blood on their hands, but one day they’re going to be accountable to God.
Life should always be the supreme value, not money. Many politicians against sensible gun legislation call themselves pro-life. It’s immoral to abort a baby, but it’s perfectly fine to shoot him once he is born.
President Trump said that mass shooters are “cowards.” Politicians who don’t stand up to the NRA for political convenience are cowards, too.
