Most businesses do not scan their customers or search their customers.
I get it. Americans are beyond frustrated and angry with this crap. It’s sad though that we’ve taken a societal problem and turned it into a battle over political ideology that we engage in daily debate over, yet we still have these guys out there going loco and killing in huge numbers, with no end in sight.

Seems we argue about every facet of this issue BUT “wtf is causing young men in this country to lose their stuff like this?” Is it biological? Is it environmental? Is it societal? How do we identify and stop it?

It’s the Democratic Party, not the Democrat party. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demo...(United_States)

You can tell it’s a right-winger that wrote this.

Unfortunately mass shootings are here to stay. Gun control will never impact them - just like the war on drugs did not improve drug problems. Making schools gun free zones won’t work either. We need armed police officers in school. Luckily I’m in a district that has one. And we had a district meeting with the local
PD and they were very informative and made us feel better.

Every single parent should have to go through an unplanned lockdown drill to know how terrifying it is.
The problem is, the cure is worse than the disease.
If we are going to have armed guards at every school and institution then just admit we are a defacto police state. The innocent civilians and people carrying own their business do not want to be bothered with this.

I do not fly anymore because of the gestapo at airports.
I do not go to concerts, amusement parks or large gatherings anymore because they all have the gestapo there as well.

There are many other countries that are more free than the USA and take a different approach with better results.

99% of the time, the gestapo act as a cleanup crew rather than prevention from determined individuals that want to take lives.

The only ones that will be punished are law abiding freedom loving citizens.

I doubt this is mental illness, it is hate. If that is mental illness then at least 1 out of 10 Americans needs to be put in an asylum.

Actually, no it isn't. They are Democrats. Here is their website.

https://democrats.org/

If they want to change their name to the Democratics Party, they should do that and make it official.

Been saying it, going to keep saying it.

While the mouth breathers want to blame anything but that, some people are aware that you don't shoot massive amounts of innocent people unless you got something fricken wrong with your brain.
