That is the loophole that needs to be plugged first.

That's not a loophole, it's a private sale....

As far as "taking over the national gun conversation," here's the BIG mistake the left is making on this issue... Tens of millions of American law-abiding citizens own guns, of all sorts. They're not only GOP voters, they're Dem and Ind voters, as well. If the left keeps pushing eliminating 2A Rights, they'll lose some Dem voters and many more Ind voters. How does that look in Federal elections?
I didn't say he convinced everybody. I said he (and Emma) is the ones controlling the conversation. That includes the one we are having.

If 3% of the population owns most of the guns, and over 60% are in favor of stronger gun controls, I'd say the odds favor getting some action on guns following the next couple of election cycles.

If they are an imminent danger to themselves or others 100% yes. If committing people to get them the help that they need so they can be a functioning productive member of society is the only way and last resort 100% yes! It must be done. Only in the last resort. I can't stress that enough.

I have lost ALL respect for Ingraham for 'apologizing' (wasn't a real apology but anyways) to Hogg. Trump would NEVER have apologized to a hypocritical snob like Hogg. This guy has narcissism and arrogance written all over him and I forsee more news from him in the future as he tries to extend his 15 minutes of fame.
The difference is, he was effective, she was not. He won. Deal with it.

And Hogg, like a typical thin skinned snowflake, uses the time honored liberal tradition of calling to boycott someone who is critical of him by stating TRUE facts...Hogg is the posterboy for useful idiots everywhere

No. All her apology amounted to was a whining session because he had managed to run off her sponsors.

All we can say to her is, "Suck it up, buttercup. Pick on somebody you can handle next time."

Period

If he doesn't learn that lesson now, he'll learn it soon enough and quite the hard way I have no doubt.
A target for what reason? Because he and his classmates witnessed the slaughter of other classmates? Or because some of them had to crawl under the dead bodies to save themselves?
