    Show me one time where I have said something complimentary about the Presidents character. Trump is no different than many leftist gun owners. They will say and do anything in an attempt to appease the other side. They are the same ****ing morons that will look at people like Feinstein proposing bans on literally hundreds of weapons and then say Yeah...but they arent banning ALL guns so they arent banning guns.

    And why cant you just deal with the substance of the comment instead of run and hide behind Trump? Or maybe YOU can answer how it is possible that guns that were bought and purchased following the laws...even federal laws...STILL somehow manage to be used in violent crimes? And KNOWING that is happening, then maybe you could answer how you think it makes ANY sense to impose MORE laws...FEDERAL laws...that are ALREADY PROVEN to not stop violent crimes.

    We had good legislation in 1994. Remember the assault weapons ban. How did that get enacted despite the second amendment?

    We need fathers back in the homes, but of course the liberals that brought us contraception and no fault divorce and tell women to put their kids in daycare to go to a job they hate donít want to talk about this.

    You might be right. I don't know how many of these shooters had their fathers in the home. I'm interested in finding out.

    The fact is not all states require a background check to purchase a firearm. This is absolutely a disgrace. A damn background check! We are not talking about an FBI investigation or you to lists all your roommates that past 10 years.

    And please, let's put an end to a couple of myths:

    1. More guns make us safer.

    Complete hogwash. Weak laws + so many firearms easily available is a recipe for gun violence. The number of civilian-owned guns is at historic highs in the United States. Far more than any other country in the world.

    2. This is a mental health issue/video games/hate crime/White supremacy issue

    EVERY country has people suffering from mental health. Every country has extremists. Every country has violence.

    This problem requires legislation and enforcement. Gun supporters need to stop with the lies.
    Question for you. We have laws against murdering someone. You seem to be saying the current laws are ineffective. So how will adding more laws stop someone from carrying out an act of murder?

    Has the passing of "hate crime" laws reduced the amount of assaults?

    Maybe we should concentrate on enforcing current laws.

    Current laws are ineffective so we need better laws that are more effective.


    Name the large city or country with lax gun laws and low gun deaths thru great enforcement.


    It cant be done
