    We’re not banning auto mobiles, callus pharmaceutical companies, food deserts, lack of health care and a number of things that cause more childhood deaths each year than guns. None of those things protect you from the very people you’re begging and failing to protect you. The right to own guns ultimately exists to protect you from them. Freedom isn’t safe. It will never be. These risks, as horrible as they are, are the essence of freedom. If we don’t have the ability to resist those empowered to deprive of life and liberty, you are only free until they decide otherwise. Our government is designed with checks and balances and the bill of rights is the citizen’s check against those that govern them.

    The question of if this happens again, stopped decades ago, it is all about when this happens again. And when this happens again , I hope it is not at my kids school. I hope its not at my church, I hope I am not at the store when it happens, etc etc.. They say dont make it the norm. to late , it is norm in the USA

    It’s not “The powerful Forces behind [political leaders]”; it’s heavily financed special interest groups and lobbying firms. There’s really no need for the hyperbole as though it is some great, unknowable mystery; it’s a pretty commonly known fact…
    I understand your on a stage and projecting a Dramatis Persona but the entirety of that enterprise is reliant upon obfuscation and denialism… call it out, and call it what it is

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the leading causes of death for children is car accidents. A great number of these incidents can be prevented, however, according to the CDC. The proper use of car seats for infants reduces the risk of death by 71% and by 54% for toddlers. The use of booster seats for children aged 4-8, reduces the risk of serious injury by 45%, as compared with the use of a seat belt alone. And the use of seat belts for older children reduces the risk of serious injury and death by 50%.

    Sandy Hook has already proven that 2nd amendment a-holes don’t give a single damn who gets murdered or how old they are. The Texas shooting won’t change that.

  • KAY HIGGINSON 1 year ago

    Look at the Elephant in the room. Look there he is. How in the f@#k can an 18-year old not be able to buy beer or a handgun but in Texas can buy assault-style rifles?? DO NOT give me this BS about hunting. My Dad has a gun. Ditto my brothers and husband (who has deer hunted). NONE of them has a semi-automatic rifle! There is no purpose for that type of rifle but to kill as many people as quickly as possible. Period.

    The red, white, and blue elephant in the room, of course, is that gun ownership and membership in the NRA actually spikes after every mass shooting. So there’s an actual, vested financial interest in having children die in schools.

  • David Martin 1 year ago

    They are called assault rifles not defense rifles that means that they’re only design is to assault someone to hurt someone so we do not need them get your s*** together and f****** figure it out

    You know……….
    I really want gun control, but on the other hand they are trying to make people crimes again, and “Please” doesn’t work very well on kill squads and lynch mobs.

    ”I want a gun”
    ”Are you part of a well-regulated militia?”
    ”There are no well-regulated militias. When the Army was made permanent in 1789, the militias were dissolved”
    ”Then you can’t have a gun”

  • Levi Shackelton 1 year ago

    Why is it that the people who believe that our schools need more guns are also the people who believe that our schools need less learning.

    Thank you for the Foster’s bit. I hope this educates at least some other people around the world that we don’t drink that disgusting swill.
