Joaquin’s First School Shooting

This children’s book is one of the most biting commentary on school shootings I’ve ever seen.

Patricia Oliver lost her son, 17-year-old Joaquin Oliver, in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in 2018. Since then, Oliver has committed herself to the cause of gun reform in America — and her latest effort involves this adorably horrific children’s book that depicts the events of the day in cartoonishly gruesome detail.

I love the idea of sending a hard copy of the book to your representatives to drive the point home, but I know where it will end up when most Republicans get it.
