White House doesn't want to talk about gun control today? Fuck the White House

You cowards: 

"I think it's important on a day like today to view this as I know the president, as a father does and I as a father and others who are parents certainly do, which is to feel enormous sympathy for families that are affected and to do everything we can to support state and local law enforcement and support those who are enduring what appears to be a very tragic event. There is, I'm sure, will be, rather, a day for discussion of the usual Washington policy debates but I don't think today is that day."

- White House spokseman Jay Carney, according to CNN

Oh, also: the NRA hostages d/b/a congressional Republicans? Fuck you, too.

Presidential crocodile tears aren't worth much today -- nor are our rage and our black-hole sadness. Unless they coalesce into action.

Demand A Plan to end gun violence. 

And if anyone in Boston is planning a rally in solidarity with this one in Washington this afternoon, let us know.
