It seems to me that the Dems have attempted to use the Uvalde shooting to their political advantage.

My sense is that the President was unbecomingly partisan in his speech on Thursday night.

Clearly, Dems attempted to use the tragedy to launch an attack against the Second Amendment. America, apparently, doesn't see this being about guns.

Honestly, I'm shocked.

More than half of Americans think that school shootings are caused by issues related to mental health rather than gun-related problems, according to a new study.

The Economist/YouGov poll, which surveyed 1,500 American adults between May 28 and 31, found that 51 percent agree with the statement that "school shootings are a mental health problem, not a guns problem." Meanwhile, 41 percent said they disagree with that view and 9 percent said they are unsure.

The survey findings come over a week after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where 18-year-old Salvador Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers using two AR-15 style rifles that he legally purchased a few days before the incident.

Relatedly, a poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group between May 25 and May 29 showed that 57.5 percent of likely general election voters believe that schools are somewhat more or much more dangerous when properly trained teachers and school staff are prevented from carrying a firearm.
