In the wake of the latest school massacre, the NRA has announced a new initiative designed to reduce or eliminate school shootings.
In a press release issued in the pre-dawn hours following the Florida Valentines Day Massacre, the NRA announced it will spend over $20 million in an ad campaign to lobby Congress to close public schools. The promo trailer for the ad features video footage from school shooting from Columbine to Sandy Hook to Parkland, while a narrator speaks “The solution is simple. School shooting happen at schools. If there are no schools, there will be no more school shootings.”
Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Secretary of Education, has already endorsed the NRA’s message, introducing a new round of initiatives to support in-home conservative christian schooling, supported by tax deductible vouchers and in-kind credits.
