    Are you going to acknowledge that this is false?

    1)
    80% or MORE of all gun murders are caused by people who are already banned from owning guns.
    Of course there's no proof for that statement.

    But here's one that is proven: 2)
    Only five states have laws enabling family members, guardians or police to ask judges to temporarily strip gun rights from people who show warning signs of violence. Supporters of these measures, deemed “red flag laws” or gun-violence restraining orders, say they can save lives by stopping some shootings and suicides.
    Few States Let Courts Take Guns from People Deemed a Threat | Time

    Which of course makes the first assertion a lie.

    How come progressives want to blame the NRA instead of the people that ignored Cruz's earlier crimes, thus giving him the ability to buy the rifle used to kill 17?

    People blame the NRA because they're a bunch of lyin' douche bags that facilitate things like Cruz's massacre.

    So you are another progressive that wont address the policy that shielded this kid from facing the consequences of his previous criminal actions, that had the sheriff and school board did their job, would of prevented him buying that rifle?

The NRA felt that starting to talk about the potential dangers of guns in the home might start to spook customers and make them think a little more before stocking up their house an a munitions depot, so they banned doctors from being able to bring this up with the parents of their young patients.

    Doctors talk about how to store away the bottle of bleach and other dangerous chemicals with their patients as well. They talk about placing barriers on the electric outlets so little fingers do not go in there. It’s all part of childproofing the home for new, young parents. But apparently, there’s something very different about guns which becomes taboo to talk about. You must never mention the holy of holies by name.
    How does some doctor have special insight on how to store weapons. I surely know as much as any MD-probably more. The CDC doesn't have any specialized knowledge on that and why should medical doctors waste their time on that when medical mistakes kill over 100K people a year and they should be concentrating on that and antibiotic resistant pathogens that have been created by the careless overuse of stuff like Cipro and other drugs

    I have yet to hear doctors bragging how they are going to do to bleach what they did to tobacco. but CDC gun banners bragged about doing that to guns.

    The NRA is losing BIGLY! Do they have any advertisers left? Any discount services? Members?

    because almost all the gun banners are left-wingers and are livid over the NRA's effective support against socialist, marxist, progressive and liberal candidates

    This might be the most ignorant bit of nonsense that has come from our foreign gun banners. the NRA has increased its membership by a half million of late. Thanks mainly to the bannerrhoid yapping of politicians and the DNC fluffing media
