Brown guy kills 8 with a truck: "WALLS! BANS! BARRICADES!"

White guy kills 59 with guns: "well what can you do"

No guilt.

"You only criticize and hate in other people what you do not like about your own character."

The most profound tweet i have read to that was in response to a piece of paper that said: "It's okay to be white".

The profound tweets were calling it "racism" and ripping them down and saying "get the f#$% outa here".

I did not make any ad hominem attacks. What are you talking about?

even "bump stocks" can't get outlawed by this impotent republican congress. but, tax breaks for the wealthy, no problem.....how many decades need to pass before voters finally get it? they don't give a s**t about poor people, they want them to just go away and die.

nothing personal... it just struck me as ironic..... no offence intended. I have to say though , no matter who's presenting this set of comments, they are indistinguishable as nothing but racist baiting. White's are attacked daily 24/7, were to the point it's just blather.

I don't think the issue was about it being okay to be white. I think the tweet is more a commentary about people's reactions to certain events with different circumstances.

There may be truth to how people react crimes. It wasn't that long ago when we had Jim Crow laws not allowing black people to participate in jury duty. It may be racial. But regardless, the idea you can't do anything about guns is something to think about.

I guess the best racial strategy is not to participate.

So why weren't "bump stocks" outlawed by Obongo's impotent Dimocrat congress?

If you think bumpstocks or any firearm, or any other firearm mod is the issue then you need to sit down and rethink your whole outlook on life. Guns arent the issue, the people behind them are the issue.

Are we going to call for a ban on automobiles? All vehicles must be fully autonomous? Lets arrest all persons in possession with non-autonomous vehicles. Modifying vehicles is now a felony punishable by up to life in prison. All knives, objects with sharp edges, anything that's made from a substance harder than that of NERF foam shall be outlawed.

What is it with people blaming guns for everything? Is it just an irrational fear? Are people scared that firearms wake up in the middle of the night and go on rampages?

The biggest issue with firearms, for those who own them, and especially for those who oppose them, is the lack of education about them. Banning, restricting, or otherwise inhibiting the ownership of a firearm is unconstitutional at best, and does nothing except make criminals out of law abiding citizens. The ones who obtain firearms and use them in nefarious ways, will do so whether you strip legal gun owners of their rights or not. The ONLY people punished by banning/restricting firearms are the legal law abiding owners, period.

Lots of money in bumpstocks. Let freedom reign!

They should make bazookas, 50-caliber machines guns, and stinger missiles legal too. The 2nd Amendment rights are more important than any other right. Guns are worth dying for.

Yeah. Deep. That's real real 'profound'.

"Brown guy".....lmao.

A better tweet might have been :

"Dude looks like any other brown-eyed white guy with a mangled, nasty beard , but let's toss race into this...and hope no one realizes "islamic" isn't a racial classification"

People have very strong discriminating views about the circumstances of death. I don't think the comment was a racist statement or anti-white. Just an observation about how people in react to different circumstances. I think it's a commentary on values.

Lack of education?

So...gun classes will SOMEHOW make people not want to murder others?

do you think walls, bans and barricades will reduce terrorism?

the white nationalist who mowed down people - do you consider them terrorists.. or, very fine people?
