After the worst mass shooting by one individual in US history, the fake president trump had an opportunity to protect American lives. The shooter had a semi-auto AR-15 that he converted to full auto and in less than 10 minutes murdered 59 people and wounded almost 1,000. But even that wanton slaughter was not enough to move the psychopath who now sits in the White House.

It took someone murdering 17 people at a school, most of them children for the psychopath trump to make even a step towards saving lives in America.

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he has directed his attorney general to propose changes that would ban bump fire stocks, which make it easier to fire rounds more quickly. The move adds his voice to a process that began in December, two months after a gunman used the device in a shooting that left scores dead at a concert in Las Vegas.

“Just a few moments ago I signed a memo directing the attorney general to propose regulations that ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns,” Trump said at a Medal of Valor event at the White House, addressing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“I expect these regulations to be finalized, Jeff, very soon,” Trump said.

Instead of a “president” who acts like Public Enemy #1 constantly at war with the G-men, America needs a real leader. It also needs real representatives in Congress, not paid lobbyists for wealthy corporations like those who sell millions of guns to Americans every year with full knowledge their products will kill tens of thousands every year, many of them children.

Here’s a breakdown of what the gun industry in America makes by selling the means to mass murder Americans.

Before a gun can be used to hunt, for protection, or in a mass school shooting like Thursday’s tragic killing at Umpqua Community College that left 10 dead, it must be bought. That one sale is a single dot in a multibillion-dollar industry, one that is coming under new scrutiny during the post-massacre gun control debate. Here’s a by the numbers breakdown.

Estimated overall economic impact of the firearms and ammo industry in the U.S. (NSSF)
20,968,273

Number of firearm background checks initiated in 2014. Because a background check is required before a gun is bought, this numbers gives insight into gun sale trends. However, just because a background check was initiated doesn’t mean a gun was purchased. (FBI)
9,138,123

Number of firearm background checks in 1999.

It’s time for America to take back its government and start regulating corporations who clearly place their own profits completely above the lives of Americans.

To be clear, I’m referring to trump as a psychopath because that is what mental health professionals are saying about him.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-psychopath-psychosis-mental-health-danger-us-president-goldwater-rule-psychiatrist-a8084726.html

Donald Trump is suffering from psychopathy and has a mental state that poses an “enormous present danger”, a clinical psychiatrist has said.

The US President has psychosis and is “a very sick man”, said Dr Lance Dodes, a former assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at Harvard Medical School who now works for the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.

It comes after Mr Trump provoked fury by retweeting three Islamophobic videos posted by the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First.

It made a great photo op though, didn’t it?  The horses are out of the stables and grazing all over the countryside, but darn it, it’s time to Take Action!  I have just sent a memo to the Attorney General to see about painting that barn door.

That’s a real stupid approach. It lets him off the hook…he couldn’t help it, he’s got a disease. That’s BS. He’s just the most current conservative Republican idiot in the WH. The problem is conservatives and their horrible ideology. Don’t let them off the hook like that.

That’s not letting him off the hook, it’s making clear that trump is a clear and present danger to everyone around him.

It’s stating that not only should he be out of office and prevented from ever holding any public office again, but that he should never be in a position of power and trust… ever.

We lock up people permanently who do far less damage and present a much lower danger to us all than trump.

This mental health expert is warning us that if we don’t take trump’s highly abnormal psychology seriously and do something about it now he could get us all killed.

That is not letting him off the hook.

trump is clearly insane when you look at his response to the Las Vegas shooting where 59 people were murdered and 850 wounded.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiFtJ2pg_94

President Trump said Tuesday that the quick response of law enforcement during the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history was “in many ways, a miracle.”

“Look, we have a tragedy. What happened is, in many ways, a miracle,” Trump said as he departed the White House for a trip to Puerto Rico on Tuesday morning. “The police department, they’ve done such an incredible job. And we’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes on. But I do have to say, how quickly the police department was able to get in was really very much of a miracle. They’ve done an amazing job.”

Then he did fuck all about it for months until another mass shooting this time of children occurred which he then immediately tried to use for his own political gain.

trump is a psychopath and anyone who is enabling him - which now includes the entire republican party - in tearing America apart.
