Anti-white rhetoric from the likes of Don Lemon and even some on city data appears to be taking a toll

Be proud!

The country IS closer together. We know that we don't want Central American migrants entering OUR country illegally and not learning ENGLISH. Liberals are the ones trying to dilute our country with these millions of Spanish speaking, unskilled, under-educated, over-breeding parasites. It's the liberals who are destroying our country.

His performance reminded me alot of how Robbie Parker was acting just before his press release. He too was laughing, joking and carrying on before getting his composure and emotions in check to have his speech.

He's IMO a good example of ADHD and probably medicated his whole life.

Also the generation and from his previous photos and background who's done MDMA Ecstasy in his teens and 20's Band and club days.

But I'm no expert just an experienced observer of others who have.

Well, it certainly won't be solved by continued "thoughts and prayers" and pledges to fix people. That's all we ever hear from Republicans, including Trump, and they're just not gonna get away with deflection much longer. If they don't wake up and begin to get ahead of this, it could hurt them badly at the polls as soon as 2020.

We know what the solution is and there's no searching required. We must get these weapons out of the hands of those who should never get near them. And that encompasses nearly everyone. It's long past time to act. Inaction puts us ALL in grave danger whatever we do, wherever we go.

If Trump is smart, his last use of 2nd Amendment Rights as a campaign rally selling point is in his rear view mirror.

Have decades of laws against illegal narcotics kept them off the street?

It's not Trump's fault. The left would like to make it that way so that way they can shut him up. But he wont be silent. The truth is the truth. Also I am watching the news this morning the Democrats are trying for more gun control. Again I hope Trump and the other Republicans resist any attempt to restrict gun owners rights!!

Absolutely--not a doubt.

He incites violence. He emboldens moronic white nationalists that are easily influenced due to ignorance and bigotry. He holds Nazi rallies that promote and incite people to violence. He is a dangerous man--not only due to his own ignorance, but due to his encouragement of bigotry, xenophobia and plain old hate. His family and Congressional enablers are complicit.

Trump owns this, and when he goes out and talks the same trash next week, while the mindless chant and laugh at his disgusting words, there will be some moron listening who will start writing a manifesto, load up his gun, and plan to hunt people in public places.

A majority of Americans support the 2nd amendment so your assertion isn't based in political science.

If you had your way, people would have no option to have a gun for self defense, making them easy prey for criminals who do have guns.

There have been numerous mass shootings that were ended by a citizen with a gun.
