Amid a national outcry for stricter gun safety measures to stop America’s plague of mass shootings, pro-gun politicians, who refuse to take action, are pitching an insane alternative. Instead of getting rid of guns, they want to get rid of doors.

This should be blindingly obvious to anyone with clear eyes and conscience, but America has more mass shootings than any peer nation in the world because we have more guns than any other peer nation in the world.

These aren’t serious ideas. They’re pathetic excuses from the most depraved people in our politics who would rather do the bidding of powerful forces like the NRA than do anything to stop these massacres from happening. In fact, Cruz and Donald Trump, among others, still attended to address an…
