    Ten dead in Houston suburb school shooting

    So I just show you a recent poll saying over 80% of dems want to eliminate semi-auto firearms and you think gun owners are paranoid? Wow.
  2. Close the loophole of China sending goods to Mexico and Canada then having them trucked into the US is a huge issue that needs to be fixed.

    You're asking the wrong question. It's not about the rights I've had to give up as a gun owner. It's about the rights I'm not prepared to lose. https://d25d2506sfb94s.cloudfront.net/cumulus_uploads/document/h8n9gvrqyj/econTabReport.pdf This is a poll done by YouGov in February 2018 asking if people were in favor of banning semi-automatic weapons. That question includes all semi-auto weapons including handguns. So 82% of dems want to ban all semi-auto weapons including handguns. More and more people on the left are being honest and saying they want a repeal of the 2A. But you think gun owners are paranoid that the left would like to restrict or ban gun ownership. Ok.
  4. Because it's another win for Trump that the left can't spin.

    Fair enough. I took you as putting some of the blame on responsible gun owners. If I was mistaken, my bad. As for your team comment my team is responsible gun owners. As one of those, I'm not prepared to give up my rights for other people to feel better and not have any real results. I'm cool with studies on gun violence. I'm for hardening schools. I'm for actually treating mental health seriously and getting people help. I'm for less drugs and more treatment facilities. There are plenty of things we could do if we really want to help lessen the risk of these shootings.

    According to CNN 26 of the 27 deadliest mass shootings in the US were carried out by someone who grew up without a father in the Home. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markmeckler/2018/02/27-deadliest-mass-shooters-26-one-thing-common/ But I’m sure your right it’s the guns fault. God forbid we look at any other factor in society.

    You’re not responsible for initiating discussion but you can be honest about it. Guns aren’t more prevalent now than they were years ago. What has changed is society. More kids are on meds. Social media has changed how they interact and increased disillusionment. There are far more households with no father and a mother working too hard and too much to be able to do the job of two parents. Those are all factors that go into this. But instead of being rational about it and actually trying to find a cause you and others like you blame the guns and then demonize responsible gun owners.

    Ever notice that the amount of black kids killed in inner city violence dwarfs school shooting victims and CNN has yet to do a town hall on that? One reason school shootings don’t happen in inner city schools is because they are better secured. They search for weapons upon entry.

    I don’t consider you absolutely racist. But I’ve never seen a 10 plus page thread on this board about violence in Chicago. I’ve never seen a 10 plus page thread about violence in the black community and the black genocide occurring. If you cared as much about gun violence as you seem to be saying it’s fair to ask the question of why are school shootings worse than the violence in inner cities in the minds of leftists like yourself?

    Why ruin the surprise for you?
  11. I don't understand this. IMO, prostitution should be legal everywhere. It regulates it, provides a much safer environment for the women to work, and takes much of the human trafficking out of it.

    Hell, that doesn't matter. If you did that you'd be a legend, maybe even be called "The Lion of the Senate", and serve until you died.

    Likely? You haven't been following that very carefully I see.

    Conspiracy theory huh? With little fanfare, he has been conducting a sprawling probe of the FBI’s handling of the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. His full report, which could set off shockwaves, is expected by the early spring. http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/372457-ig-poised-to-reignite-war-over-fbis-clinton-case

    That's not exactly the truth. Albano was appalled that, later that same year, Mueller was appointed FBI director, because it was Mueller, first as an assistant US attorney then as the acting US attorney in Boston, who wrote letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the four men framed by FBI lies. Of course, Mueller was also in that position while Whitey Bulger was helping the FBI cart off his criminal competitors even as he buried bodies in shallow graves along the Neponset. “Before he gets that extension,’’ Mike Albano said, “somebody in the Senate or House needs to ask him why the US Attorney’s office he led let the FBI protect Whitey Bulger.’’ I called FBI headquarters in Washington and tried to do just that. The nice lady who answered suggested I talk to one of the FBI’s “public affairs specialists.’’ But my call was not returned. https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/1970/01/19/one-lingering-question-for-fbi-director-robert-mueller/613uW0MR7czurRn7M4BG2J/story.html Even HuffPo says he has abused his power. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/conflicts-of-interest-and-ethics-robert-mueller-and_us_5936a148e4b033940169cdc8 Long before he became FBI Director, serious questions existed about Mueller’s role as Acting U.S. Attorney in Boston in effectively enabling decades of corruption and covering up of the FBI’s illicit deals with mobster Whitey Bulger and other “top echelon” informants who committed numerous murders and crimes. When the truth was finally uncovered through intrepid investigative reporting and persistent, honest judges, U.S. taxpayers footed a $100 million court award to the four men framed for murders committed by (the FBI operated) Bulger gang.
