  1. Instead of arming teachers what about

    Cadet Bone Spurs is the last person who should be commenting on someone else's bravery or lack there of. Live fire is a world of difference from paper targets.
  2. Flip your argument. It isn't the cost of keeping them alive, but the cost to keep society safe. Like our military budget, police forces etc.
  3. Richard Allen Davis gives me pause but even then I say no. I also agree with whomever it was that was surprised by the vote.
  4. Has the Eunuch in Chief met his match?

    One school district in Texas has threatened 3 day suspensions to any student participating in a walk out.
  5. So this just went across my twitter...........

    And even this small ask for gun control, the bump stocks, isn't going to happen. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/21/trump-gun-control-house-republicans-419746 House conservatives will squash anything that doesn't also have their concealed carry law. The law which would negate any and all state regulations on concealed carry which makes it DOA in the senate. For a group that claims to want more local and less federal oversight, they certainly have very selective notions.

    The NRA has generally been extremely successful in using the 'slippery slope' argument to ANY kind of gun control. 97% of people want gun control yet our representatives remain firmly in the pockets of the NRA. Until we get new reps I don't see this changing. It's going to have to take a long haul effort for change in a short attention span society.
  7. If creeper is another term for sexist, then yes.
  8. Has the Eunuch in Chief met his match?

    Is it really necessary to make everything personal? Or is it just easier?
  9. Has the Eunuch in Chief met his match?

    Lack of control would go with that whole instant gratification and lack of patience mind set which seems to be increasingly evident.
  10. Has the Eunuch in Chief met his match?

    And add social media to the list. It offers notoriety and fame to those seeking it. Feelings of inadequacy, competition, lack of inclusion/respect combined with easy access to guns and fame on social media. Is our society really that toxic?

    Easy access to guns no doubt helps facilitate things, but what is the underlying issue in the person who decides to act?
  13. Has the Eunuch in Chief met his match?

    The overwhelming majority of people suffering from mental health issues are not a threat to others, just themselves. So no, I would not trade gun control for health. Both are needed. Being socially maladjusted, is that really mental health? Is lacking empathy mental health? I don't believe we understand the motivations and root cause for mass shootings yet. Certainly in some cases there have been red flags but many people have the same red flags without becoming mass murderers. I was reading how serial killers have actual changes in their brain scans with low activity in impulse control areas, high activity in emotional response areas. In individuals with this predisposition their early life environment was the determining factor on future actions like becoming a serial killer. Nurture AND nature play a role. Most mass killers are not captured alive, we don't know much in terms of the physiology.
  14. In seriousness, no I don't favor it. It isn't a deterrent, it is not justice it's simply vengeance. State sanctioned murder. And yes my view has changed over time. I used to be pro, but my opinion has changed. Dealing death as justice is not what I believe in.
  15. Well if Penn state didn't get if for enabling a pedophile I'm not sure anyone deserves it.
