Upright: “At some point we’re going to be fatigued with everybody being a victim. … You always have to play the hand you’re dealt. If you’re dealt a bad hand, you still have to play it.” —Justice Clarence Thomas

Alpha Jackass, part I: “You’ve done worse than nothing. You like to say this is a mental health issue. One of your very first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of [the] mentally ill. You did that. Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health. So I agree, this is a mental illness issue, because if you don’t think we need to do something about it, you’re obviously mentally ill.” —Jimmy Kimmel, who’s factually wrong

Alpha Jackass, part II: “Tell these congressmen and lobbyists who infest that swamp you said you were going to drain, force these allegedly Christian men and women who stuff their pockets with money from the NRA year after year after year to do something. Now, not later. Now. And don’t you dare let anyone say it’s too soon to be talking about it, because you said it after Vegas, you said it after Sandy Hook, you say that after every one of these eight now fatal school shootings we had in this country this year. Children are being murdered.” —Jimmy Kimmel

Lack of self-awareness: “We cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with pride when our babies are being slaughtered.” —Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Abortion Supporter)

Non Compos Mentis: “Evidence collected over many years, obtained from many locations, indicates that the power of Prayer is insufficient to stop bullets from killing school children.” —Neil deGrasse Tyson

Zombie BIG Lie: “We have to end the absurdity of the gun show loophole. Forty percent of the guns in this country are sold without any background checks.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

And last… “Media most days: We should wait until young people’s brains fully develop — around age 25 — before criminal justice system treats them like adults. They aren’t responsible. But when kids say what MSM wants to hear on guns: LOWER VOTING AGE! BECAUSE SO MUCH WISDOM!” —Jonah Goldberg
