How come liberals don't want to talk about mental health in relation to school shootings?

How should we react to the people sending death threats to Stormy and Hogg? Should they be allowed to have the means to carry out their threats?

Sounds like Hogg could use a firearm.

Good times!

I have been looking..not an easy # to come up with..what I have found out is a fatherless home is a significant thing in relation to childhood problems, suicide, runaways, behaviour disorders
thefatherlessgeneration.wordpress.com...

As for Canada, a graph shows roughly 550,000 fatherless homes..out of a population of roughly 35,000,000.
www.statcan.gc.ca...

I will continue to investigate.

Research shows the same thing here.

Our rate of fatherlessness in certain demographics approaches 70% and it's rising sharply in others.

Do you ever try and start the conversation with them instead of waiting for them to bring it up?

My friends whether liberals or conservatives have never had a problem discussing any topic that I can think of.

Maybe you need new friends.


I do and of course I have some liberal friends that will discuss, but mostly if I bring it up, they say, "Yes we need to look into that, but let's talk about guns first."

Come on liberals. Where's the mental health aspect? Not mental health background checks.

But anti bullying, more school councelors, early intervention to at risk youth, more mental health resources to schools, Public service announcements about mental health, Anything? I hear crickets.


Those are all first class requirements. Also anyone that brags on social media about how tough and well armed they are needs to be checked out by the authorities. Prevention is always preferable to a funeral....


you mean like this:





But to show my confidence, I gave my lady a sweet little Glock 43 for valentines day...Just a hopeless romantic I guess.




She's the tough one and very dangerous...but she doesn't need to brag about it.


Anyway this thread was more about trashing liberals than seeking solutions to a very serious problem.

and fishing for flags and stars....anti libs is alway a good tactic for baiting the hook....


Well you're wrong there, this thread is not about fishing for stars and flags. It's a valid issue I have and see. Again, I'm pretty liberal on most issues. This thread is an attempt to talk about the real issues here and they all revolve around mental health.

Good points. Keep in mind that Bullying and it's implications and results as in shootings, IS a mental health issue.

You do realize that both your statements default to it all being a matter of education?

It's interesting that you would see it that way.

I think Death threats should be handled immediately and harshly. Take them seriously...either a very hard repercussion and consequence or intense mental health intervention.

I'm not sure liberals are as loud as the million dollar plus companies out there controlling all media with a chatbot army of communists trying to influence them.

It's probably 4d reelection chess insurance.

Anyway...

They just changed the Webster dictionary definition of assault rifle to include semi auto.

All right, but what classifies as a death threat?

Do we go zero tolerance on this one?

What about the little kid who gets angry and yells, "I'm gonna kill you!" as little kids do? What about the little kid who yells it in play at recess as little kids do?

Remember the little kid who got suspended for chewing his pop-tart in the shape of a gun?

I can't find anything by demographic..but I bet in some..such as Aboriginals, it could be significantly higher than the norm.

That probably gets a pass. We know that people say things like that, but when someone takes the time to type out and send a death thread, that's different.

Put Stormy and Hogg in a baseball practice match and let loose the dogs of war, then once they are both shot, we can ignore them and the shooter and move on to next weeks issue......

I think death threats would be the response, if not the intention to putting a dumb, punchable faced, mini nazi in front of the media.

I mean, you would have to be stupid to think that some people don't like the idea of being able to protect their families.

But only a real scumbag would threaten a kid who's still in high school. That's beyond terrible and really childish. An adult would be threatened by a high school kid? Here we are back on the mental health discussino again. That adult needs to be admitted asap!

To be fair, none of my conservative friends want to talk about any kind of background checks or age restrictions or Gun policy etc


But that isn't being fair, because those things already exist. Despite the second amendment, there are several key peices of legislation in place both covering background checks and setting age limits (18/21).

And to be equally blunt, the left isn't talking about either of those things. They're talking about ineffective "bans" which are wholly unconstitutional and very unpopular. Some of the more fringe elements of their "movement" are calling for outright repeal of the second amendment.

You'd think someone intentionally was trying to start a civil war or fracture this country in two. A bunch of short-sighted loonies if you ask me. They ignore the simple fact that laws will never stop crime simply because criminals will always ignore laws and find workarounds (3D printing guns, smuggling, theft from LE/MIL, zip guns, other deadly weapons, etc).

A whole particular group of adults are clearly quite threatened by Hogg and Gonzalez.

Agreed, the threats are ridiculous. Despite Hogg's cowardly avoidance of every single debate challenge, threats are never called for.

If they can't refute his BS statements with facts and logic then I don't know what to say!
