Eddie Glaude, Jr.: ‘Money Is Allowing These Folks to Allow Our Babies to Die, Period!’
GLAUDE JR.: "But, look, we’re not going to be able to address this. We’re not going to be able to do anything until we’re honest about the problem. This is not a right to bear arms issue. This is a right to sell arms. This is greed. This is pure unadulterated greed. Folks are making money off of selling these weapons and they don’t want to stop. They don’t want to undo their business model. They don’t care if an AR-15, Nicolle, is killing our children. They don’t care if it’s killing our first-graders, right? They want to make money. And until we admit that that’s what’s driving Paul Ryan, that’s what’s driving Donald Trump's silence, that’s — that drove Tom DeLay, right, in 2004 to let it expire, that it’s money. Money is allowing these folks to allow our babies to die, period."
