I'll just leave this here.

America's gun culture in 10 charts - BBC News
Well, that's a lie. And Cruz would have been red flagged if he'd had a record. Which did not happen because of Obama's policy.

All school shootings happen in gun free zones. So guns aren't able to keep anyone safe there.

So did Laura. I wonder who got hurt the worse...?

He really is, you know. What are you doing to change the world?

Emma was attacked for wearing a flag from a country that disarmed their citizens before slaughtering them, while calling for the disarming of US citizens.

She's not Cuban. She's American.

They aren't the "school shooting" generation. They're the American Idol generation. "I deserve to be a singing star, despite the fact that I'm tone deaf, because I work really hard, and want it really bad, and my family all says I'm a special little snowflake."

That. ^

And I've posted the info from Broward officials themselves, and a Broward official stating they were making schools more dangerous under such a policy:

These types of rational are the problem. Maybe you don't blowback yourself, but the expectation of a blowback means that people don't learn from history. It divides people.

As far as Hogg, he is just taking a page from the culture he is raised in. Somebody says or does something you don't like, take away resources from them, whether it be money or human connections. It's what is expected from people who do this.

Both sides use negative consequences on each other. If you change this reaction, you have a different culture. Forget lib vs. conservative as the main difference.

Any other completely uninformed people want to speak up?
Come to Columbia, South Carolina for the next gun show at the Fair Grounds, and I will show you people selling guns without any sort of identification, documentation, or paperwork. "Private Sellers" are not required to do anything special in this state. The last gun I bought at a gun show here was a .22 S&W Kit Gun. I pulled my driver's license out and offered it to the seller, and he looked like I had just landed a spaceship in front of his table. He had no idea why I was showing it to him.
