That’s fair, but I think it’s reasonably safe to say that 22s - and even BB guns - are what the right would likely call gateway guns if they weren’t in the pockets of the NRA. And really, that also speaks to a huge part of the problem, which is that so many of us (including me) grew up with BB guns. Our culture is so…
NASCAR is waaaaaaaay down from where it was. I went to Dover a couple of years back and it was less than half full. But I don’t think it’s really their fault. They rode a wave of popularity that was simply not going to last. At the end of the day it is no longer the latest thing and they are seeing what is a new…
Absolutely! But that’s for another forum. Right now we’re focusing on how and why the lobbying apparatus of the nation’s gun manufacturers are able to set up indoctrination programs in our high schools.
American expats shouldn’t have any voice in American politics...that should just go without saying.
mass-shooting gun enthusiasts like to use the Why-not-ban-cars? strawman, but kids can’t drive because they would be a danger to public safety. And yet, putting implements of death in children’s hands is perfectly fine - and moreover, sanctioned by the government - in the fucked-up society we’ve created, where…
This is laughable and beyond useless. A child could easily circumvent this “protection.”
Love to brag about being a racist
Don’t play dumb. It’s not a good look.
Yes, when “basketball” is a stand-in for “you are black and therefore you should not be playing hockey.” It’s clearly intended to reference a racial stereotype, and deploying it to taunt and unsettle a black man makes it obviously racist as hell.
Are you kidding?
homeland security adviser Sebastian Gorka told a television interviewer that the focus on white supremacist violence was “overblown.”
Maybe he forgets that one of his first acts in office was to dismantle the federal task force to investigate White Supremacist terrorists. Maybe there would have been a more thorough investigation if Trump and Kelly were actually monitoring and investigating White Supremacist groups!
I think you certainly have to take a good hard look at anyone who wants to spend too much time with other peoples prepubescent or pubescent children. I think it happens in EVERY youth sport to some degree or another. I’ve been in speedskating for 44 years, and the just regular abuse that was gossiped about and not…
Sue gun manufacturers out of existence with frivolous lawsuits.
Sandusky, Hastert, Nassar, and countless swim coaches. I now have to wonder if anyone that looks to coach children is or desires to be a child predator. It’s a wonder any parent ever feels comfortable with letting their children out of their sight.
Yup, interesting anecdote about this kind of stuff that happened to me just today. Went to see Black Panther (pretty darn good, btw) and mentioned I was going to an older acquaintance who I know is at the very least Republican (not even a die hard Trump supporter). They said “Oh yeah? Well I sure hope you don’t get…
Imagine surviving a mass shooting and then inviting the shit storm this student is inviting. That’s some brave shit.
I hope this generation, these students, get the change they demand and that we all deserve. What I wonder is, if somehow laws were changed to ban AR-15 sales to anyone under 21... are they satisfied? I hope not.
This generation is going to burn down the NRA and they are going to do it with Social Media.
Hey, look at that, there are still people on the internet who are unfamiliar with sarcasm.
