In democrat strongholds, so I guess the democrat platform isn't keeping people safe like we thought. Amazing, as much of a redneck Republican state Texas is, the mass shooting still had to be carried out in a democrat dominant and controlled area!

[quote=heart84;55844462]The Left will not "let a good crisis go to waste" and will continue to lump more whites as "white nationalists" and "domestic terrorists" for disagreeing with their talking points. It is will go into full overdrive mode. These are the types of games they play.

Don't fall for their agenda and always be ready to cite stats. The Left will never touch the topics like the daily mass shootings in Chicago and Baltimore. Let's just take Chicago as an example of what the media won't touch:

Murders between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 561
2017: 660
2016: 777

Shooting victims between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 2,948
2017: 3,463
2016: 4,351[/quote
I'd rather hear from the left what they think, rather than from the right, such as you, who thinks they know all about what the left thinks about the issues, including guns.

No but if I remember correctly the left wanted to work with the right about the dangerous tone in political rhetoric at the time. For some time it worked, then Charlottesville happened...

Unless we as the human race have become too irrational to deal with the pressures of modern living, why not consider everybody and anyboduy evil who would shoot down innocent people?

The left never wanted to do anything about "the tone." They said the same thing in the wake of the Tucson shootings and it lasted about five seconds.

No way. It's the other way around. Most gun supporters strongly demand fewer regulations. For instance, in Oklahoma starting this fall you won't need a license or training to buy a gun.

So every time there is a minority shooter, demonizing is simply "non PC straight talk" but if the shooters are white, it is wrong and divisive to bring it up?

The fact that you play defense for the El Paso shooter, who WROTE A WHITE SUPREMACIST MANIFESTO, probably suggests where your own personal sympathies lie.

White supremacists are sick people, especially when they act out violently. So are black gang memb two in Chicago or wherever else. Did you know that two things can be true at the same time, and one does not need to be denied for sake of the other?

But your quick sweeping under the rug of an obvious white supremacist agenda at play tells us something about your motivations.

But he didnít shoot conservative economists or polluters. He expressed his opinion with his AK-47.
