My 4-year-old just FaceTimed to ask what I’m doing to “help the people in Buffalo” and “why did the bad man do this?” Absolutely gutting. This cannot be his normal. It’s time to BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS. #EndGunViolence

“Assault weapons” are already banned in New York. New York has every gun law you could possibly want, including a “red flag” law.
Do you have a more serious suggestion than “It’s time to ban things that are already banned”?
BTW, the replies to this dubious tweet are hilarious. A couple examples:
In the middle of enjoying her after-dinner all-natural watermelon fruit bar popsicle, my 5-year-old leaned back in her chair, looked me dead in the eye and asked, “What will we ever do to escape this inflationary spiral in which this country currently finds itself.” I’m shook AF.

My 2 year old just asked me how we can afford to give Ukraine $40 billion when we have countless citizens suffering here. I’m still trying to regain my composure,it’s just crushing to hear them talk like this.
