Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump to convene both parties to discuss “some rational laws on gun safety” after a gunman in Las Vegas carried out the country’s worst mass shooting.
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) both said now is not the time to address gun legislation and made it clear their top legislative priority is the Republican tax plan and budget legislation.
Well then, when the fuck is the right time? Seriously, tell us. We’ll make ourselves available.

From THINK PROGRESS:
Republican Allen West was just elected to the House of Representatives in Florida’s 22nd district, defeating two-term Democratic Rep. Ron Klein. His first move since being elected is rather strange: he has hired a conservative talk radio host, Joyce Kaufman, to be his congressional chief of staff.

From JON RALSTON at the LAS VEGAS SUN:

That’s what Sharron Angle, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate, said in an April 21 interview with TruNews Christian Radio’s Rick Wiles.

A new Suffolk University poll released Thursday shows GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle surging to the front of the pack in a close race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in the Silver State’s GOP primary.
“The ‘Tea Party Express’ endorsement of Angle has energized her effort to rise from relative political obscurity to flat-out front-runner,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center.
