Yeah. I've seen my husband buy guns off Armslist and fill out paperwork for them. Some people act responsibly and some don't. I'm a Bernie supporter and I read off Bernie's suggestions to my NRA husband. He agreed with all of the recommendations (very similar to MN law). He also agreed we need to close the "gun show loophole" or person to person sale as you say because he's seen guns exchange hands with not even so much as a name.

here at least as long as the whites, and have done as much to build our country. The best solution to this
for now would be to divide America into a confederacy of territories with at least 1 territory for each
This physical separation would nearly eliminate race mixing and improve social unity by granting
each race self-determination within their respective territory(s). "
He said that? Geez, what’s wrong with young people today? I hear so many advocate for separation on both the far right and far left. What the hell was all the struggle for during the Civil Rights Era then? People need to advocate coming together, not separation. That’s already been done and it was a huge fail.

It's just a real black eye on this country as seen around the world. No civilized country should have to go through this time after time. Even Pope Francis offers his condolences Sunday to the victims of the multiple mass shooting in the US.

What? There were a lot of mass shootings while Obama was president. This doesn’t have anything to do with who is president. This is a sickness in society. The Internet is more to blame than whoever is president at the time.

Trump feels so much hate and venom that he is no longer a decent enough person to hold the highest office in the land. He fans the flames of hate with his rhetoric. He is an instrument of terrorism. He is a toxic, evil person. He is responsible for the death of each and every person who died in these two mass shootings this weekend.

No Trump “nice tweet,” no doubt written by his staff, can make up for the deep evil emanating from this man.

God help us all.

And Chuck Todd and every guest so far this morning on MTP has literally blamed Trump.

Cory Booker just said out of his own mouth that this lies at Trump's feet.

Completely nuts.

According to Gun violence Archive Database:
Of the twenty-five mass shootings in the Gun Violence Archive database for January 2019, 16 percent (four) of them were committed by white males; 4 percent (one) was committed by a Hispanic man; 64 percent (sixteen) were committed by African Americans; and in 16 percent, or four cases, the attacker’s race is unknown
This is only for one month, but still.
Yes YT men still commit over 50% of them. But your nonsense about them being all of one race and political persuasion was embarrassingly wrong.As much as you hate YT men and have an axe to grind with them, you're just plain wrong. Fact are facts, and your hatred of YT isn;t going to change that. Educate yourself, quit watching CNN and HuffPO and Vox and such, and read better sources.
you stated the recent mass shootings were done by ONE race ONE Gender and ONE political persuasion. Facts say otherwise
sorry Spanky;
You lose
Nice cherry picking on that one month of data lol, but I do have a question, what's a YT man, a yoga teacher?

If you’re genuinely concerned about your safety, one solution is to purchase a reliable weapon, train with it, and legally carry it with you. This way you’re not relying on politicians, law enforcement, or anyone else to keep you and your family safe. People need to stop acting like sheep and calling for others to protect them all the time.

Mass shooters are a disgusting scourge, but they’re not going away anytime soon. A little self-reliance and preparedness goes a long way in the world we live in today.

As useless a wish as winning the lottery but I wish there could be a ban,,,widely publicized...on any reporting of these shootings.
Who cares most what he wrote in his manifesto? The ones that do the shooting knowing 'he'll' get attention.
If they knew no one would ever hear about them, do you think they'd do it?
