Former Senator Rick Santorum thinks CPR has a better chance of saving gun shot victims than responsible gun laws

CNN held their “State of the Union” program per usual on Sunday and one of the guests was the former Senator of Pennsylvania — attorney, author, and complete twat — Rick Santorum. It was on this very public platform that Santorum decided to give us a piece of his mind by suggesting students marching in the March For Our Lives events nationwide would be better served taking CPR classes to save their dying classmates than lobbying for gun control.

It’s impossible to conceptualize. And yet, here is video proof of his complete idiocy:

“How about kids instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations that when there is a violent shooter that you can actually respond to that,” Santorum told CNN.

If that weren’t enough, he decided to double down, blaming kids in high school for being too busy trying to graduate and shit to take down active shooters during study hall. “They took action to ask someone to pass a law,” Santorum continued. “They didn’t take action to say, ‘How do I, as an individual, deal with this problem? How am I going to do something about stopping bullying within my own community? What am I going to do to actually help respond to a shooter?'”

Well, bless his heart, that’s a lot to unpack. For starters, our students aren’t lawmakers, they’re students. They shouldn’t be thinking about how to protect themselves because that’s not their job. Their job is to study and work hard and try to become a productive member of society. It’s not their responsibility to save their fellow classmates from dying.

As for the CPR class bullshit, people with actual medical degrees had something to say:

Of course this amazing future leader had to weigh in, too:

And because he just couldn’t stop himself, Santorum continued, “Those are the kind of things where you can take it internally, and say, ‘Here’s how I’m going to deal with this. Here’s how I’m going to help the situation,’ instead of going and protesting and saying, ‘Oh, someone else needs to pass a law to protect me.'”

Tell that to the Tea Party, Martin Luther King, Jr., March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation, the Million Man March, and the hundreds of other protests that led to actual change in this country.

Go home, Rick. You’re drunk.
