I have a right to not get shot by a nut-case with a gun. That is not in conflict with your right to own a gun unless you are a nut case.

Do you think a nut case has a right to own a gun?

No, do you think a nut case has a right to own a car, knife or anything else dangerous?

Wait for it, Wait for it...install cricket sound here


No common sense, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.


Good thing Plastic Straws did not come up

How do you recognize someone as a nutcase (before they have done anything violent)?

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.

Liberals offer sound bites and pander to fear, hatred, racism, sexism, and intolerance. They're not even ashamed of it.


Democrats don't want to pass legislation regarding guns, illegal immigration, or anything of else. They'll do anything to hinder any actual change. Unfortunately, the sheeple fall for this nonsense: resolutions, proclamations, etc. All of which mean absolutely nothing. If the Dems really cared about the issues they yap about constantly, they would do something about. They don't, and any reasonable voter knows why: they know they'd be unceremoniously booted out of office or they'd actually have to figure out a way to pay for silliness like The New Green Deal, Medicare for all, reparations. Dems pander to the uneducated and uninformed. They know that this crowd will believe their BS.

Oh, please. You need to live in an actual war zone before spewing such tripe. The only places in America that resemble actual war zones are liberal controlled cities with strict gun laws.

Have involuntary commitment to asylums. Liberals got rid of it. Look what liberalism gets us; whack jobs running around killing people.

Demonize the shooter, not the tool.

We heard Hillary say her truth..

Just about every Semi Automatic rifle is a "Weapon of War".

That's why we don't trust you and what you offer is not a solution.

Yep and we can stop all drunk driving by stopping everyone from owning cars also.

I won't give up my rights.
