To the surprise of absolutely no one, in the wake yesterday’s shooting of five people at a GOP Congressional baseball practice, we’re now been treated to a feeding frenzy of navel-gazing opinion pieces on the urgent need to do something about America’s alleged gun problem. Never let a crisis (or attempted murder by a crazed violent leftist) go to waste. In any case, it seems that it’s time one again for a national conversation. Or something.

Along those lines . . . After Congressional Baseball Shooting, We Need To Talk About Gun Control 

Before his death last year, Scalia was the Supreme Court’s conservative brain, devoted to interpreting the founding document with what he saw as the intent of its drafters. Those founding fathers famously quill-penned the Second Amendment: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” So it will pop the bubble wrap in extremists’ minds to hear that in not allowing restrictions on firearms, they’ve been genuflecting to a myth.

That’s because they’ve skated over inconvenient words from both the men who wrote the Constitution and Scalia, their medium.

Here’s a good question . . . Why would we ever talk about gun control after another mass shooting?

Let’s not politicize this.

Let’s not use the occasion of a shooter targeting congressmen on an Alexandria ball field — one of two mass shootings before lunch on Wednesday — to talk about guns, and whether this country’s blind absolutism on the Second Amendment merits reconsideration.

Speaking of such things now would be opportunistic. It would disrespect the victims, not to mention millions of law-abiding gun owners. It would be un-American.

And as night follows day . . . Gun control talk quickly follows shooting of congressman

A congressional hearing to debate gun legislation was even supposed to take place on Wednesday, but it was canceled.

“This is not what today is about, but we have too many guns on the street,” Gov. Terry McAuliffe, D-Virginia, said of the shooting in his state. “I talk about this every single day. This is a very serious issue.”

Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Georgia, was on the field during the attack and said afterward that “if this had happened in Georgia” the shooter “wouldn’t have gotten too far.” He said that’s because his staff member who was in a car near the field is typically armed in the representative’s home state and would have had a “clear shot at him.”

Uh oh…someone didn’t get the memo . . . Sen. Tim Kaine On Alexandria Shooting: Not A Time To Discuss Gun Control

In the wake of a shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine told reporters Wednesday that it was not the right time to talk about gun control.

Calling the incident outrageous, the 2016 vice presidential Democratic nominee told reporters he hopes for a quick recovery of Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise and praised first responders for their actions on the scene.

When asked if he believed it was a good time to talk gun control politics, he replied, “No, because we don’t know the facts. We need to know the facts rather than speculate. We just need to know the facts.”

And he calls himself a Democrat.

Veering back to the narrative of the day . . . So… Who’s Ready to Talk About Gun Control?

The shooting of Scalise and his colleagues is a tragedy, like all mass shootings in America are tragedies. Regardless of party affiliation or political belief, the attack was a despicable one. That said, Scalise has an A+ rating with the NRA, which you don’t achieve without allowing things like the loosening of restrictions on interstate gun purchases, which make the procurement of firearms easier for someone potentially looking to cause harm.

Could that policy have affected the events of today? Absolutely. Even if it wasn’t a factor in this particular incident, shouldn’t the GOP be alarmed by what happened and be willing to at least engage in conversations about this policy and policies like it? Absolutely.

Because wanting to exercise your right to defend yourself is clearly insane . . . Republicans, the Second Amendment and gun violence: Will the GOP ever return to sanity?

As with most of these mass shootings, we can practically recite the details by memory, as if reading from a script. Thoughts and prayers. Calls for legislative action. Finger-pointing. Even a few wild conspiracy theories tossed in to underscore the digital democratization of journalism. We all have our pet issues and our own ways of dealing with catastrophes like this, even me, and other than the knee-jerk, loony conspiracy theories, there’s nothing wrong with acknowledging the tragedy then moving on to considering how best to prevent another one from happening.

As David Frum wrote in the wake of the Alexandria shooting: There was a massive apartment fire in London yesterday, but is it too soon to talk about fire prevention and safety? Nope. Having lived through two house fires myself (long story), I assure you, it’s never too soon.

Finally, someone has an answer . . . Your ‘thoughts and prayers’ are meaningless. To stop mass shootings we need to do this

In the face of endless, pointless violence, we are all cowards unless we raise our voices against violence and the root of violence: the proliferation of guns in America.

We are all cowards if we draw false conclusions about the motives and backgrounds of shooting suspects and use this misinformation to smear people whose political views we oppose.

We are all cowards if we care more about the race, identity or political affiliation of the shooters than anything else.

We are all cowards if we use each shooting to prop up our personal biases and politics.

We are all cowards if all we can think to say after each senseless shooting is: “Thoughts and prayers.”

Not to be left out of the conversation . . . Gabby Giffords: America Needs To Acknowledge It Has A Gun Violence Problem

“[W]e must acknowledge that a deadly problem like this brings a responsibility to find solutions,” Giffords wrote. “And that’s where we, as a nation, will need courage in abundance, as my former colleagues find the strength to recover from their wounds — and the bravery to try to make shootings like this one less likely in the future.”

And because more laws are always the answer to any societal problem . . . Let’s hope baseball shooting brings us new national gun laws to make us safer

The best way forward is legislation that requires universal background checks; mandatory training in use of force, rules of engagement and tactical techniques; and an upgrade to the system that maintains gun registration around the nation. And once the whole nation is on the same page, it becomes very easy to require one standard for concealed-carry permits.

I’m all for good guys with guns, so long as they are both background-checked and well-trained. I know from my time in the Navy that an untrained good guy with a gun can be as bad as a bad guy with one.

It’s up to us to call our representatives. Our lives are at risk, and so are theirs. Hopefully, after Republicans and Democrats play their congressional baseball game Thursday, they will leave their partisanship on the field and come back to work ready to fight for the safety of our families and our children.

Nothing Really Changed on that Ballfield Yesterday

Civility means more than cooling down what we say to each other. It also means treating our fellow citizens with dignity and respect in the policies through which we govern ourselves. The everyday violence of poverty is no less destructive to our national character than are our now-predictable mass shootings, over 150 of them this year.

Until then, all the emotional distress that echoed through the halls of the Capitol on Wednesday is as empty and hollow in history as it was after Gabby Giffords was shot, or as it was after Adam Lanza showed up to the school that day. In fact, to quote a T-shirt that was all the rage back in 2016, and which, as far as I know, not a single Republican or conservative ever has disavowed…

Fuck Your Feelings.

Get back to work.

And finally there’s this:

  1. Tim Kaine isn’t taking the chance to go after guns?

    Virginia 2018 must be more at risk than the DNC is letting on.

    • Maybe he can’t right now:

      Kaine:

      Democrats Have to ‘Fight in the Streets’ Against Trump

    • “Let’s not politicize this.”

      “Un-American when we do not get our way”

      Leftists losing and going ape shit, blaming us for their actions and getting upset we do not cave..

  2. Man I’m sick of seeing stuff about shooting unless they decide the hearing protection act I don’t care anymore. The most interesting thing is ruger’ new 10mm 1911 they just released!!!!!

  3. “Fuck your feelings. Get back to work.” I like that. All these snowflakes need to hear such things more often. My personal favorite is, “Nobody cares. Work harder.”

  4. I for one welcome the gun debate though the timing may be inappropriate.

    It’s just another chance to demonstrate how out of touch with reality antis are. Nothing, not one damn thing they propose would actually accomplish anything. So, maybe with time they’ll get beat over the head enough to actually address the issues at their root.

    Seriously curbing violence isn’t hard. They just don’t want to discuss actual solutions. The hard part is getting people to admit to reality.

      • When it comes to the higher ups I tend to agree.

        When it comes to run of the mill folks I honestly think from having talked to quite a few that many can be won over (at least to the point of not supporting gun control) if you’re willing to have a calm one on one with them. They expect an “extremist” response and they’re surprisingly pliable if you don’t give them that.

        Generally you know if they’re hardcore or casual gun control supporters in the first minute or so.

        And hey, I’ll take a “I support your right to own it but I don’t want one” over an ignorant person who actively supports gun control any day of the week.

        • Agreed Strych9. Once rapport has been established, it is difficult for another person to dismiss you or your concerns out of hand.
          I’ve learned that often after a couple of nutty sounding, illogical or untrue regurgitated statements, people have a deep curiosity about guns, their operation, accoutrements, acquisition, laws regarding them, and the people who own and bear them.
          I say in this way it is like being disabled or gay: some people have poor social skills or are unsure how to approach the elephant in the room. Deep down they are curious but simultaneously put off because they don’t understand the social rules and are afraid of appearing naive or rude. However, if you accept that it’s up to you to limp others past their awkwardness, and persist in being a person they would otherwise accept or admire, they eventually come around.

      • I acknowledge the right to debate, everyone in this country has a voice and right to raise the issues they think is important.

        However the democrats aren’t calling for a debate, they are trying to give us a good ole talkin to. They want to tell us what laws are going to be passed to “fix the problem” and that’s the end of the discussion

        If you try to debate the democrats they just go to the reports and claim you stonewall the discussions and are despicable for doing so

        • That’s not the problem.

          1. When you debate terrorist groups, you grant them a legitimacy they are not entitled to.
          2. Some subjects are simply not open for debate. Would you be as open to a “debate” on repealing the 13th amendment?
          3. Once your side crosses the line from political speech to political violence, you lose the right to any forther consideration of your arguments.

        • Oh pwrswerge, who decides which idea or belief is “open for debate”?

          The regressives already have placed most ideas that are a counter to thier propaganda as “hate speech” because their beliefs about how the universe works is “not open for debate”. Some of the leftists want to outlaw those that want to “deny” human caused global warming (climate change). You either have free speech, or you don’t. The whole idea of free speech is that it specifically protects speech and ideas that are reprehensible to a large segment of any society..

          So sure, why not debate someone that wants to reinstate slavery? I enjoy tearing a new A -hole, figuratively speaking, of people with reprehensible ideas.

      • Trump has the proverbial ‘bully pulpit’. Let’s have the House leadership introduce a kids don’t touch guns bill and FORCE the Leftists into a public debate on this.

        What are they gonna say? That they want dead kids?

        Let’s use their terror tactics on *them* for once… 🙂

        • 1. The feds have no business in education.

          2. They still won’t debate us. The media won’t cover it or will just lie about it.

          I do agree that children should be taught gun safety in school (along with basic finance, first aid, and other actual life skills).

          Outside of math and science, I basically only had four years of school. English was the same thing every year. its wear eye learnt too talk good, History was American, Texan, World, Geography repeated on three or four year cycle. I read several books repeatedly because they were repeatedly assigned. Just about every class had an arts and crafts portion for reasons that still remain a mystery to me. PE class didn’t actually teach me anything about how to stay physically fit.

          Teach you to mention school to me? I don’t really think I had much of a point there other than school is mostly a waste of time.

    • Stopping violence is easy, it’s about self control, respect for your fellow man and having some common decency

      But the Democrats can’t address that issue because they are not a party that tells you to have respect, improve your own well being or be accountable for your actions. They thrive on telling people be themselves and the government will pick up the slack.

      Dems addressing the real issue would alienate at least 1/3 to 1/2 of their voting base

  5. This incident is not about guns, it’s about a die-hard communist who wanted to overthrow the Constitutional Republic by any means necessary. The gun didn’t make him do it, “his” ideas did.

    The corporate/establishment media don’t want to talk about Antifa, BAMN and other communists who find violence to be the acceptable course of action to institute their totalitarian society because corporations and corrupt government workers want the same thing. So focusing on the gun/tool and championing removing human rights accomplishes their goals without the inconvenience of exposing the truth. Hence the “don’t talk about the shooters motivations” and the “don’t politicize this unless you are using it to remove human rights.”

    @2m15s

  6. 32,000 ‘gun murders’ every year in this country? I thought there was another word for that thing where people murder themselves…

      • Bullshit. Murder is the unlawful taking of a human life, and I’m pretty sure suicide is illegal. So, yeah, it is entirely possible to murder yourself

        • Murder is the unlawful killing of ANOTHER person with malice aforethought, ecpressed or implied.

          Unless the person who kills themselves is somehow also another person, they cannot kill themselves and that be killing another person.

        • Also manslaughter is also the unlawful killing of another person, but is not murder.

        • If you’ve managed to successfully commit suicide, how are they going to prosecute you for murder?

          No, suicide is not illegal, but in some (most?) states, attempting to commit suicide is, and assisting someone else to commit suicide is also usually a crime. The genesis of these crimes is ancient Christian tradition arising from the suicide of Judas. Judas being a great sinner for having betrayed Jesus, his hanging himself must have been a great sin also, and so suicides were denied burial in hallowed ground. Seems we cannot rid ourselves of such nonsense. In the states, we adopted the tradition from the British common law.

          Moreover, the classic definition of murder is the unlawful killing of one human being by another.

        • Suicide is illegal in all but 2 states. But it’s no longer a crime Federally.

          Go figure…

    • That can’t be right! cuz the Va. Gov. stated 93,000,000 are killed every year. BTW he’ll be running for Pres. 2020 no doubt.

        • Not only that, the dummy said it TWICE, and only realized it when a member of the media repeatedly called him on it.

          The leftists just ~love~ to tack on a “million” as a emotional amplifier. “Million Moms” etc.

  7. Many of these stories talk about mass shootings. There were no mass shootings yesterday (that I heard about). A mass shooting requires four victim fatalities, a public place, and either be “indiscriminate” (Congressional Research Service) or unconnected to other criminal activity (FBI).

    Words have meanings.

  8. So… the lefties want to use an attack by one of their rabbid terrorists to prevent people from being able to defend themselves against the next commie or aloha snack bar nutjob who decides to mow down innocent people in the name of “progress”? Yeah… not going to happen. The commies crossed a line. They had one of their own attack innocent people preparing for a charity event. I, for one, refuse to acknowledge them as having any legitimate place in any discussion on any topic.

    This country doesn’t listen to or negotiate with terrorists. Every bill before Congress should be passed in a simple majority vote with no DNC politician being granted floor time on any issue. DNC members who don’t show up for committee meetings should be ignored for quorum purposes. Etc. there have to be devastating political consequences for this kind of outrage. Quite frankly, I would be fine with every single DNC affiliated politician being refused the right to take their seat in the House or Senate due to their overt association with a terrorist organization.

    Ultimately, there need to be consequences for this kind of outrage. The next ANTIFA black mob needs to be teargasssed, black bagged, and sent to GITMO for the rest of their miserable lives. Their political supporters should be sent to join them.

    • “This country doesn’t listen to or negotiate with terrorists. Every bill before Congress should be passed in a simple majority vote with no DNC politician being granted floor time on any issue.

      My good Pwrserge, if I knew of a way to convey to you how RIGHT. FORK. ING. ON. you are from that paragraph, in a manner that was personally NOT awkward let alone socially acceptable I would theoretically give you a fist bump and a pat on the back, hell I’d go so far as to buy you a cheeseburger and an ice cold strawberry shake. This is most definitely the best and most reasoned response that should be implemented RIGHT NOW.

      But,

      Obama negotiated with terrorists, and employed them for regime change in the ME, but to your point exactly, we SHOULDN’T, but under different leadership (haha) we do.

    • As a baseball fan, I’m just glad this didn’t happen at a little league practice because basically nobody cares about congressmen.

    • After watching that game, I have to agree with you. Unless the best players were shot, the Republicans have no business playing baseball. With the exception of Costello at shortstop, it looked like GOP stands for Geriatric Overweight Players.
      Rand looked good, but didn’t produce. SWING THE BAT!
      Even the women on the Dem’s team got on base.
      That pitcher for them was a one man team. Ringer?

      • I believe he was a star pitcher in college. Also, Scalise was supposedly one of their better players.

  9. Typical Communist action!
    The democrats that hi-jacked the CPUSA’s political platform, way back in the 60’s, after following HRC and Saul Alinski’s Rules for Radicals for the past 40 plus years, now think that they are far enough along, that they can start using the standard tricks of their new organization!

    But Trump beat the lifelong Communist, HRC, for both the Electoral College AND the popular vote, once the illegal votes were subtracted! And he promised to “drain the swamp”!

    Which makes it crucial that they “take him down”!
    Remember back when HRC slipped up, and remarked that “If that SOB wins, we are ALL going to jail”! That is why they want him out of there so bad! He has mellowed out a bbit, wheather they have him a bit “cowed”, or he has become a little soft!

    If he ever gets fully pissed, he might just start draining, and they just cant allow that!

    I can just imagine, the Russia of 1917/18 and I dont think we are too far away from where they were! Keep your powder dry, it may well have just started yesterday!

    Socialism/Communism doesnt heasitate to kill for their idealogy!
    HRC already has a list a mile long!
    And Obutthole isnt far behind!

    • I will never acknowledge a communist as having any legitimate authority. Last time my family did that, my great grandfather was dragged out of his home in the middle of the night and executed for the “crime” of being “an enemy of the people”. I won’t even recount how many members of my extended family died due to communist genocide. If you want to know how much I hate communists, ask a Jew how much they hate Nazis. You’ll get something remotely approaching the correct amount of vitriol.

      As far as I am concerned, communists and socialists are vermin on the level of the 3rd division of the Waffen SS.

    • Given that Russia was under the grip of an increasingly unpopular monarchy during the Bolshevik revolution, and that the communists only came to power by filling a vaccume created by a laundry list of other revolutionary and anti-tzarist organizations, I’d have to say that the current landscape in the US is a long way from the October revolution.

      • Really Ardent? “The communists only came to power by filling a “”vacuum” by a laundry list of other anti Czarist groups a other revolutionaries”? That was because the “vacuum” was created by the Red communists purging/ mass murder/defeat of all those other “rival” groups.

        In the Februrary Revolution, the Czar was over thrown, there was a second communist revolution , the October revolution, that overthrew the provisional government by the Red communists murdered/purged the entire new governing body. Then there was another civil war between the Reds against all rival factions of Whites(counter-revolutionaries) independence movements(those groups fighting for local and ethnic control) and non-Bolshevik communists. In this civil war, the Reds were able to defeat all rival factions, assuming complete control of all of Russia, which then became the USSR.

        The marxist Weather Underground in the seventies stated they would need to murder 25 million Americans that would not be re-educate after their planned over throw of the American government.

        That same mentality that created a “vacuum” by murder of all rival groups in Russia is the same mentality of the much of current regressives, (birthed in communist doctrine) in this country. If the regressives could create a “vacuum” by committing mass murder of all rival factions, ie Republicans, conservatives and christians, you better believe they would not hesitate.

  10. Guns don’t really matter as a cause of murder.. California has the same murder rate as Texas even though it has far fewer gunshot caused deaths and much stricter gun control. Humans are violent critters and will use whatever means is available if they really want to kill. Better coconut control would help but not likely to happen.

  11. Seriously, f*ck the Democrats. They have the gall to try to disarm us while their media is in full throat support of violence towards Republicans. They did the same thing to black people back in the day, disarming them with Jim Crow laws while disavowing but secretly in favor of the militant wing of their party, the KKK.

  12. “Maybe today’s incident will finally wake up the GOP”

    That’s the recent theme. And they will *never* understand *why* even when one of own is shot, that we have *zero* interest in agreeing with them on gun control.

    Gun control, *not* ‘Gun safety’.

    We MUST reclaim the language of the debate. Anytime they bleat ‘Gun safety’, we must immediately and *loudly* correct them and say ” Gun control. Not ‘Gun safety’, GUN CONTROL. If you want real, actual gun safety, we can start by teaching young children not to pick up a gun they find. Ask them why they refuse to teach that in elementary school.

    We *must* have the House leadership introduce a law mandating teaching the gist of the Eddie Eagle program to young school kids. At first, that’s it.

    The House leadership MUST put a bill up for a vote SOON on this.

    It will box Left into a corner. They will have no logical reason to vote against it. If they indicate they will vote no, demand an explanation from the as to *why* they voted no for a law that teaches young kids not to touch a gun.

    John Bosch, can you talk to your DC contacts about having them draft a short, one-page bill called something like “The 2017 Child Gun Safety Act” ?

    What excuse will they have for voting no on it? Do they want dead kids?

  13. The NY Times-Union issued an editorial today, claiming that too many guns is the root of “gun violence” in the United States. in the same op-ed, however, the editor acknowledged that “Shootings may have any number of underlying causes — severe mental illness, religious extremism, racial hatred or other bigotry, personal grievances, to name a few of the more typical ones.” In short, guns are not the cause of gun violence, all of the foregoing is. Seems this point completely escaped the author, stuck as he is int he conceit that reducing the number of guns will somehow reduce violence. Nitwit.

  14. “In the face of endless, pointless violence, we are all cowards unless we raise our voices against violence and the root of violence: the proliferation of guns in America.”

    We’re not cowards, but we would have to be idiots to believe that “the root of violence” is “the proliferation of guns in America.” There are dozens of roots of violence, but they all require honesty and hard work to reduce them. Not a simple, but ineffective, fix like gun control.

    • With a declining murder rate amid an ever increasing and frequently record setting number of people carrying guns, in a country where right to carry, and constitutional carry are in ascendancy, the premise that the proliferation of guns is the root cause of violence is demonstrably and self-evidently false. In fact, it is so obviously and absurdly false that once having said that, the speaker can and likely should be ignored as either so misinformed as to be incapable of adding anything useful to the discussion, or else so dishonest as to be dismissed as a liar.

      Underling these concepts is a form of magical thinking in which inanimate objects imbue their possessors with motives and short circuit what is presumably the sort of common forbearance in the use of extreme violence by the vast majority of society.

      That anyone espousing such outrageous claims is taken seriously is the truly frightening part. The cognitive dissonance involved in dismissing such patently and obviously false statements because they serve to bolster preconceived notions about the subject is frightening. The realization that there are many who are so woefully misinformed, or so tragically impaired in their critical thinking that these sorts of statements aren’t widely mocked, from all quarters is frightening. If large portions of the electorate can be so easily mislead by such transparently false statements, there is little hope of successfully addressing the more complicated and nuanced problems facing the nation.

  15. In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

    In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States who later died from the wound.

    In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

    In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.

    In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

    In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

    In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

    In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

    In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria.

    In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

    In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

    In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

    In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

    In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

    In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the head thus wounding her for life.

    In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

    In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.

    In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school.

    As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

    In 2016 a registered Muslim Democrat murdered 49 people in an Orlando night club.

    One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not. Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns. Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in these shootings and murders.

    SOLUTION:
    It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns. Best idea I’ve heard to date.

    • That list should be nailed to the doors of the Capitol, the DNC, and every governor’s mansion in the country. Best summary I’ve ever seen.

  16. “As with most of these mass shootings, we can practically recite the details by memory, as if reading from a script”
    The irony…

  17. I too have changed my tune and demand Common Sense Gun Control:

    DEMOCRATS should NOT be allowed to own Firearms!

  18. Veering back to the narrative of the day . . . So… Who’s Ready to Talk About Gun Control?

    Who’s ready to talk about morals control??

    • “You can’t legislate morality!”

      What nonsense. All legislation is based on pushing an agenda based on moral belief system. Or lies that it is.

  19. “No, because we don’t know the facts. We need to know the facts rather than speculate. We just need to know the facts.”

    Fact is, this is a stupid POS mf evil (D) problem. Born, bred-by-prison-rape.

    BAN THE EVIL (D) ! and all sympathetic rinos –
    you’ll cut crime by 87%, “gun violence” by 97%, murder of the unborn by 90+%, School drop out rate by 88%, communism by 79%, taxes by 64%, support of islam by 85%, tolerance of globalism by 50%, global warming hoax money-grabbing by 68%. . .

  20. In the face of endless, pointless violence, we are all cowards unless we raise our voices against violence and the root of violence: the proliferation of guns in America.

    Gun ownership is the root cause of violence???? Please see a psychologist immediately.

    We are all cowards if we draw false conclusions about the motives and backgrounds of shooting suspects and use this misinformation to smear people whose political views we oppose.

    You mean like drawing the false conclusion that gun ownership is the root cause of violence??? Then using such misinformation to oppose others political views???

    Can’t make this stuff up.

  21. So an attack by one of the left’s own, repelled and defeated because guns were readily available, is supposed to serve as a reason for the left to crack down on the rest of us owning guns.

    Sounds perfectly reasonable, if you assume their intent is to further the ends of the shooter. What’s insane is that they seem to actually expect everyone else to agree.

  22. And because more laws are always the answer to any societal problem . . . Let’s hope baseball shooting brings us new national gun laws to make us safer

    If we banned baseball no one would ever die at a baseball game. This is about as logical a proposition as banning guns.
