Gun Violence

Not Cool, Matt Gaetz

Manuel Oliver lost his son, Joaquin, in the Parkland, Florida school shooting. On Wednesday, he attended the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing on gun violence with Frank Guttenberg, who also lost his daughter Jamie that day.

Garbage Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-1) decided this hearing was a good time to start word vomiting about border walls. In response, Manuel Oliver began yelling at him, which we think was pretty human and relatable. Gaetz then asked committee Chairman Jerry Nadler if Guttenberg and Oliver could be removed. Nadler declined.

When you find yourself at odds with a grieving parent, you may be on the wrong side of an issue.

Your DGB for this weekend is to give Gaetz hell using the contact information found below.

This Again.

Your DGB for today is to see this Grab and this Grab and this one and this one and also this one. Oh, and this one and this one and this one and also this one.

Yet again, there has been another mass shooting. Use the resources linked in the above Grabs or just buy a Moms Demand shirt here. We find it’s a good conversation-starter.

See Something, Say Something

Your DGB for today is to be vigilant.

It’s a scary world out there. People are mailing bombs and there’s the ever-looming threat of another mass shooting. No one wants to live in fear, but the times call for extra caution. If you see someone saying hateful things on social media, don’t dismiss it as all talk. Report to the platform and perhaps law enforcement if the threats are targeted.
