Together the signs, which are displayed on the sides of three trucks, read: “Slaughtered in school ... and still no gun control? The signs echo a key plot element in the movie “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The billboards in the film, rented by a mother played by Frances McDormand, pose the same kind of question to the local sheriff concerning the unsolved murder of her daughter. Rubio has received $3.3 million in campaign contributions from the National Rifle Association.
The grieving mother of a Florida school shooting victim has invoked Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron, as she called on the President to protect American school children by introducing proper gun control laws. Lori Alhadeff’s emotionally charged outburst will add to the pressure on a President who has so far avoided all mention of gun control after 17 people died in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

In a tweet on Saturday night, Trump questioned why Democratic lawmakers had not passed “gun control legislation when they had both the House & Senate” during Barack Obama’s presidential tenure. Just like they don’t want to solve the DACA problem, why didn’t the Democrats pass gun control legislation when they had both the House & Senate during the Obama Administration.
