Mass Shootings Keep Happening Under Trump

The gunman who killed at least 17 students at a school in Florida on Wednesday committed one of three of the deadliest mass shootings in modern history that have come in the past five months, placing the spotlight on President Donald Trump and the Republican controlled Congress to enact some serious gun legislation. But chances are, if history is any indication, politicians won’t act.

The shooter, 19 year old Nikolas Cruz, has been identified and arrested.

Aside from how many people were killed at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Wednesday’s shooting was the 18th in a year in which only 46 days have elapsed.

It’s unclear how the president will react, but aside from a lone tweet he’s been silent, which is a troubling sign considering how  his response to the Las Vegas massacre fell short, its likely he’ll do much more than he already has.

“The list has not been made public, but the sources said it included Reginald V. Graham, who in 2007 arrested the rapper Meek Mill, whose jailing for violating probation on those gun and drug charges has stirred widespread debate about the fairness of the criminal-justice system,” Philly.com wrote. “Appellate  lawyers for Mill were never told of the list or that Graham was on it, prosecutors acknowledged.”
