We are reaching an inflection point, which is when they try to wave you away from the fight. She sounds like the white ppl who said stop marching after the Birmingham Church bombing that killed the 4 girls. “It’s not working.”Trying to make us responsible for their intransigence. https://t.co/HA9SH8dM3H— Sherrilyn Ifill (@SIfill_) May 7, 2023
Megyn Kelly does not question the wisdom of gun safety legislation, instead throwing up her arms and effectively arguing that opponents of murder throw up their arms in futility. Following last month's school shooting in Nashville, Kelly pulled out the "mental health" diversion. She remarked
There's something wrong with our society and I for one (apparent profanity deleted) am sick of the knee jerk "it's the guns, it's the guns." We have 330 million guns, maybe over 400 million by some accounts, in America. They're not going away. We could do an assault weapons ban tomorrow. They're not going away, alright?
We have to take a serious, honest look at what's wrong with us. And I for one think we need to take a really hard look at, yes, mental illness here and also institutionalization. Institutionalization. We need to make it easier to civilly commit people who are showing signs- red flags- that they may be the next school shooter.
