  • Gun violence
  • As I've said before I have an on going argument with a cousin who happens to be a die hard liberal. After many back and forth with her, this was my final response to her. Obviously it started with the tragic events in Florida. She wants sticker gun laws and revision or elimination of the 2nd amendment.

    Here we go again, there are untold countless laws relating to fire arm purchases, usage and transportation of said fire arms on the books already. Hours of classes followed by back ground checks that take hours or days to complete, permitting, finger printing, letters from responsible citizens showing just cause why the new permittee should be allowed to own a fire arm. As a safe owner of fire arms, I feel the problem does not start with me, rather with the criminals that black market or steal a fire arm. Criminals will NEVER follow the laws. Look at Chicago. It has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, yet there are thousands of fatalities each and every year there. Offer gun reciprocity, allowing all 50 state gun transportation without fear of prosecution. Open or concealed carry should be the law of the land, eliminate gun safe zones. Gun safe zones invite criminals to do their hellish deeds. This school was a safe gun zone as have other high mortality gun shooting sires, what has that proved? Some members of Congress have been practicing their gun law speeches, waiting for the next catastrophic event to happen. I have two of these representing me (bad use of representing) Murphy and Blumenthal, they were disliked by the right in CT and that dislike still remains. There's not a camera either of them can pass by without preaching to the common folk about gun laws. Don't talk to me about additional gun laws or changing 2nd amendment, you'll never convince me otherwise.

  • Guns are not the problem, mental illness and poor parenting are. Keep guns away fromthose that are mentally ill andteach the children to have respect for one another.

  • You mean morality? Are you sure? It's easier to let TV, schools and video games raise kids and then complain about the results.

  • Add Hollyweird and the liberal media as well, plus the red flags had been already flying on this one yet still slipped by. The school system figured once they expelled the punk their hands were clean of it. GUN FREE ZONE doesn't cut it. Train and arm the educators. Why is the left so afraid to give it a try?

  • I personally believe that the information available to a certain agency did not "slip" by but in fact was controlled by a small segment of the "deep state" established by Obama and his ilk to create fear and havoc, hate and distrust. JMHO

  • As Rush said on his show on Friday, and President Trump said on Twitter on Saturday, and then again Rush reiterated on FOX NEWS SUNDAY with Chris Wallace yesterday, if the FBI had been doing their job instead of chasing shadows with their liberal-led Russian election collusion and alleged sexual escapades BS then maybe, just maybe this could have been prevented. FBI Director Lasky now admits they should have passed on the information about the perp to the regional Miami office. Sure. It's like when someone is caught doing something bad or illegal, they always say they are sorry. What they are really sorry for is that they got caught, not for whatever act they committed. The kids from the Florida high school have now planned a 'sit-in' as we use to call them, calling for no politics involved, no more guns, no more NRA. Well, the kid speaking made it political when he brought the NRA into it. Rush began his talk that the next shooter is already out there, already has the gun, and is already planning the execution. The dems on the panel disagreed, because they can't accept the reality of it all, still. I know it is very difficult for liberals to see logically, all that pot smoking clouds the brain you know, but think about if say, a half dozen or so people in that school were trained in firearm safety and usage by the NRA and local law enforcement agencies, and were armed or at least had access to their own weapons, how far that kid would have gotten? Ditto for Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, Las Vegas, Columbine...yep, arm the staff and employees, that is the pro-active gun control we need. End of editorial.

  • Kids generally live what they learn.
    Put your kids in front of those video games and train them better. Any interactive game that fine tunes the and desensitizes the ability to hone in on a live human target.
    Come on people. Another step in the direction is take them out of church. Haven't you heard? God is dead. satan said so.
    Got a link below for you. Teach those kids real good.
    Me? I live far away from your children. I remember a few years ago, there were no mass shootings to speak of. Huh. What changed?
    Duck sucka.

  • Young people know more than we give them credit of knowing and are more observant than we think on some subjects like: recreation drugs and sanctuary cities and states.

  • Re: Gun violence for parents.
  • Haven't heard of too many Muslims shooting up schools etc. Did have a local Muslim try to blow up the tree lighting ceremony downtown though. School shootings seem to be reserved for the younger generation. Why is that?

  • Re: Gun violence for parents.
  • Shooter games.
    Fixation on guns.
    Failures who hate success.
    People who blane everybody else for their problems.
    Weak parents who pay no attention to their kids and never talk to them.
    The idea that everyone deserve success without having to work for it.
    Hollywood and TV glorifying shooting gunfights war retaliation.
