You know, except for everything.

In 2018, at least 26 students have died in five school shootings in America. Two of those deaths came in a shooting at Marshall County High School in Kentucky.
On Tuesday, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he doesn’t think Congress can do much to address the issue.
“I don’t think at the federal level there’s much that we can do other than appropriate funds,” McConnell told a group of community leaders in Danville Tuesday.
McConnell’s comments come in the wake of a national push to strengthen gun safety laws in America, and in the midst of a proposed property tax increase by Fayette County schools to boost school safety measures in the district.
What Mitch McConnell was really trying to say is that there is not much that the federal government is WILLING to do about school shootings as long as he is in charge.
But there is, in fact, plenty that the federal government can do, including money for increased mental health screenings, more comprehensive background checks, and making it illegal to sell certain weapons to the public without a special permit and purpose for owning such a weapon.
But none of that will happen with Mitch McConnell in charge of the Senate because he is a wholly owned subsidiary of the NRA.
Oh, and he is also a fucking POS.
