David Brooks in 1964 after the Civil Rights Act passed. “Please show respect to segregationists in the south during this difficult time”. “We all need to allow them to adjust to the removal of the “Whites only” and “Colored only” signs”.
Let’s be real. You are NOT going to “protect yourself”. That’s a fucking fantasy. You’re more likely to shoot yourself in the goddamn foot. Peddle that NRA horseshit somewhere else. “Defensive gun use” is a myth and the data proves it.
Right!? If you perform a racist action for selfish motives, your motives don’t matter. You have done something racist. Doing racist things makes you a racist regardless of what you may feel in your heart.
> The people who defend gun rights believe that snobbish elites look down on their morals and want to destroy their culture. [...] It’s necessary to let people from Red America lead the way [...].

Your nine-year-old has a moron for a parent, and I’m sorry that’s the case. Mentally ill people on their own never killed multiple people barehanded. They always have help, and it should always be noted that mentally ill people are more likely to be victims of violence than anybody else.
“Not supporting Trump here, but let’s be honest... If he’d lost “Hillary Clinton” would have completed this paragraph just fine.”
It’s absurd to compare Trump’s long history of financial trickery and unethical behavior to Clinton. Despite all the noise, there’s not been anything found that was substantively shown to be corruption or graft from Hillary.
Trump: “It’s a mental health and school safety issue!”
Cruz, as with most mass shooters, obtained his guns legally.
