Let's cut to the chase...the left just lost a huge amount of their momentum on gun control.

Right?



Not really. It was the security detail that mattered here, if there wasn't one, we would have a lot of dead congressmen. You could also flip this around and say that if we got the guns off the streets this wouldn't have happened.


Yeah this wouldn't have happened, he would've either acquired a gun illegally or he would've used another method, like running everybody down with his van. And they'd have still been defenseless if Scalise didn't happen to be in attendance, because the others didn't have security details.

Ok let me know when you're done trolling for stars and want to have a reasonable conversation without your constant putting words into peoples mouths just that you can feel better about yourself.


At that point I will be willing to open conversation with you.






Do you condemn this attack or not?


I'm not even sure I want to answer you as it seems you already make up your mind what argument youre going to forward to someone before they've even responded or before you've even made a rudimentary attempt to draw context from it.

If the shooters motives were merely because he thought all GOP policies suck, then fry him. (albeit unnecessary as he is already dead)
If the shooters wife or daughter was raped by one or any of the GOP baseball practitioners then no I don't condemn it.
If the shooter was mentally incapacitated, then no I don't condemn him, I condemn whomever it was that was far too irresponsible by allowing him to have firearms.

I just refuse to be pigeon-holed into one way of thinking when there are multiple reasons that sometimes good people do evil things.

Do not feed the trolls.

(thunderwherever)


I'd like to know why none of the Trump supporters here ever denounce the obvious Russian trolls when they show up here. And they deny that Russia helped Trump. And they deny that Trump's whole admin was in constant secret meetings with Russia. Hang everyone in the white house for treason.


Really? You are so convinced of the Russia interference theory .


It's pretty obvious.

Reading the replies here, reading Pelosi's remarks, reading editorials online. . .

It's going to happen again.

It's going to continue.

Might as well put up a huge sign and say, "Kill people! There will be enough people to defend you!"

And how did you cope when Obama went to the UK and told them they would have to get in the back of the queue on trade agreements if they voted for Brexit? Or when, as a senator, he went to Kenya and rallied for Odinga's election?

Did you want him to face execution, too?

Are you our next Jared Loughner?

If I have said it once, I have said it a dozen times. The far left is teetering on the brink.

Mass psychosis taking hold and their violence is palpable. Hang everyone in the WH? Really? We have some sick sick individuals believing some really hyped up $hi+ right now.

That is an important point. The fact that there were some there who had guns kept a tragedy from turning into a massacre.

But I'm curious: how do you propose we get rid of all the guns on the streets?

No it is not. Get your head out of Rachel Maddow's butt and read and research! You are teetering, my friend. You are drinking gallons of the left-wing Kool-aid and trust me....it is not healthy.

And as predicted, the media's coverage of the gun has been wrong on pretty much all fronts.
SKS Rifle, not an AR or AK variant

Of course its going to happen again. The problem is systemic, it's not cured by a few nice words one day from all media outlets, from the senators/representatives.


The hate and divide has been a long time coming and anyone who didn't see that has been asleep at the wheel. But the aforementioned niceties in a 24 hour period isn't going to fix what decades of fostering this divide have now wrought.

We would never be able to get all the guns of the street. Not only is it our constitutional right to bear arms, it would take a massive draconian effort that would invade the privacy of each and every home to even come close to pulling it off.

If this is how you go through life, then surely you can never make any decisions.

For example, none of us can see into the mind of any serial killer, so we don't know if we can condemn them.

It ends up in nihilism.

How can you condemn the person who sells a mentally ill person firearms? How do you know what that seller was thinking? Perhaps they were suffering from mental illness? Perhaps their wife was raped and the seller thought the person he was selling the gun to was going to kill his wifes raper?

Why are you willing to judge that person?

I guess this is off topic so whatever. But I guess we will not see you casting any judgements on any people, including politicians in the future, because you have no idea why they are taking the actions they are taking.

AND...so were Obama's statements and actions that were clearly intended to interfere in foreign elections.

WTH?

Is the only difference *partisan* in your mind?

I noticed you deleted your comment about hanging everyone in the White House for treason. But I took a screenshot because I honestly found it alarming...AS AN INDEPENDENT.

Get a grip SZ, before you act on stupid, partisan, knee-jerk feelings.

Nancy Pelosi is one of the most hateful angry women I have ever seen. Her partisan hatred has penetrated to her very core and become a part of what she is. She has taken on a dark dark persona. Wish she would retire.

Well, I keep hearing that all we have to do is get the guns off the streets. I'll give the benefit of the doubt to finally get an answer... assuming no 2nd Amendment issues, can anyone suggest how we can get the guns off the streets?

Which foreign election did Obama interfere in that you take issue with.
