    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    THe NRA should give that kids Dad a medal for teaching his youngsters about guns at an early age.

    You blame teachers for the failings of students?

    Update: After Texas school shooting, many questions loom - Yahoo! News

    Sad, seemed like a pretty good kid. I suspect the killing was justified, but his actions are mystifying.

    I'm not sure pistols even existed when the constitution was written, but I'm certain nothing like what we think of as an elementary school ground did.

    For nearly three centuries; they were invented in the 1490s. By the time of the Revolution, they were a gentleman's weapon for resolving duels.

    I believe from the framers articles that they were extremely familiar with history and life of firearms. More so, they wanted us to have them under any circumstances.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
