Once again, President Trump has made a cowardly, cynical and monumentally stupid retreat on the issue of guns. No one should have expected otherwise.

Forget everything he said in the wake of the Parkland shooting about the urgent need for meaningful action. Trump now takes a position that will…

I would like to state my support for those high schoolers in Florida demanding stricter and safer gun control policies in this country.
