So because of Republican inaction, our families have to live in a war zone which is everywhere America...movie theater's, night clubs, schools, Wal-Marts, garlic festivals, country music concerts, our playgrounds, our streets.
Shouldn't we restrict the movement of people in order to reduce violent crime?

Please tell me your solution isnt thoughts and prayers when we know that we can reduce crime with wide scale curfews and checkpoints that include stop and frisk.

Isn't reduced crime worth giving up your rights?

They're really good at making scapegoats and placing blame though. Second to none.

The Democrat solutions has led to their key demographic (blacks) committing a majority of the nations murders, rampant welfare, and massive homelessness...no thanks.

Your pea shooter isn't going to stop a drone or a highly trained sniper from 2,000+ yards away if the government wanted to go balls out on tyranny.

Then we have this overplayed criminal argue from the right. Your chances of having a break in during the night is pretty slim. They're going to break in during the day when most people are away from home, but this is assuming individuals have jobs and or school.

It's pretty ****ing great having the right say the left is based on fear. The right has major issues with projection, paranoia, and fear based on racism.

A flimsy wild "idea" isn't a solution. It's a flimsy wild idea.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.
Calling everyone who differs from you liberal is, firstly, not an understanding of the issue. I'm not one and never have been one.

No side has a solution to the problems both sides have created. All they've got now is pointing back and forth, craving whatever the next social habit will be, compensating themselves and their madness with more stuff.

The OP clearly said ".... prevent mentally ill people from getting guns". Good people won't be prevented from having guns.

Are you in favor of mentally ill people owning guns?
