WE CALL BS
~Parkland School Shooting~
By now we all should be aware of the senseless mass shooting that took place at a Parkland, Florida high school.
Here’s John’s take.
“We basically automatically already know how each side will play out,” said Oliver, laying out the script that we’ve sadly gotten used to seeing.
“Thoughts and prayers. Fuck your thoughts and prayers. It’s a mental health problem, but it’s also a gun problem, and then someone says, ‘Now’s not the time to talk about gun control’, and everyone moves on until it inevitably happens again.”
“But this time felt slightly different,” says the host. “Because when the ‘Now’s not the time’ argument came out, the kids from that school said, ‘You know what?
Yes it fucking is.’”

It’s nothing short of amazing that amidst their grief and anger, they’re fighting so other students can feels safe in schools. It’s nothing short of infuriating that their bravery is being dismissed by those who refuse to listen.
Oliver pointed to how in response to the question of whether or not Republicans would take notice of On the March For Our Lives next month, CNN analyst Andre Bauer seemed prepared to blame literally anything except gun laws: rap music, television, Tide pods, etc.
