What a joke. The people who complain about corporations ruining America are now siding with those same corporations to regulate guns sales and gun manufacturing.

The US Supreme Court has cited time and again that private companies cannot deny civil rights (i.e. a bakery can't deny a wedding cake to a gay couple), yet the "editorialist" thinks that those rules don't apply to banks or other corporations.

Age discrimination is still discrimination. Federal law allows persons 18 years and older to purchase rifles. It it not up to a company or a bank to gainsay those laws...it is, in fact, unconstitutional.

But the anti-gun crowd wants to punish companies that do support firearm manufacturers and sellers.

Most gun advocates have nothing to bring to the table with the out of control situation except their patriotic amendment recitation time and time again. We are stepping up to the plate to rectify so get out of our way. The GWD.

Anything we'd put on the table you Marxists would gladly take away.
Read these words carefully:

YOU WILL NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT.
WE WILL NEVER GIVE YOU WHAT YOU WANT.

Isn't it odd that "WE" fought a bloody war to not be like the British, and these libiots or so called progressives want to take us backwards.

So you won’t mind if someone came into your home to conduct a warrantless search of all of your property and possessions? Since you want to relinquish any and all of your rights if anything is found or deemed illegal all of your property will be forfeit for disposal, you and your family will be thrown out and sent to work camps.

This coming from people like yourself. People that know nothing about guns or even the Constitution, but still think that it somehow qualifies them to lecture others.

Is it "out of control?" Of course it is. Over 98.4% of these shooting have been carried out in "gun free" zones. And that number is likely to go higher. There are states where schools have armed staff. Those same schools also have signs stating to the effect that "it's your ass if you mess with our students!" I wonder why we don't see shootings at these schools? Better teaching or parenting, possibly. Or the fact that it's known that the schools arent "gun free" and that staff will defend their students. Overwhelmingly more likely.

If you really want to "step up," stop your parroting and work toward find real solutions. Making open-ended threats and advocating for violence does nothing to strengthen any of your posts.

What do the radical Democrat Leftists want to do now, confiscate all shotguns and revolvers? Important points one needs to know about this latest murdering scum is he was encouraged and trained to be any atheist by "progressives" and was bullied by others trained by "progressives."

Yes indeed...The weasel m. bloomburg is another liberal gun grabbing POS who thinks he's the one to decide if you can have a firearm all while the Rat bloomburg has 24/7 ARMED SECURITY.
I don't care who you know or how much money you have or what you say m. bloomburg you are a gutless deranged little man who makes the vast majority of Americans want to puke.

One MO for the Santa Fe school massacre seems to be a result of the 17 year old perp being bullied. According to police reports the perp allowed those who never bullied him to live with hopes his story would be told and ivory tower Americans would feel his pain and raise him to hero status.
Well that's all well and fine except for one HUGE problem...Wait till that biatch gets processed into a prison where the inmates will make those deceased snot-nosed school bullies look like milquetoast Tele-Tubbies.

It's time to cease talking to criminal coddling azzhats who held the doors open with insane, "Gun Free Zone Signs." And what's worse following each and every tragedy they zero in on The National Rifle Association and others who had NOTHING to do with the crime.
These liberal, marxist azzhats are good for one thing...GETTING MEN, WOMEN and CHILDREN KILLED.
It's waaaaaaaaaay past time to cease allowing incompetent people to run the show. It's the same bunch of guilty as sin rotten, uppity sleazebags who concocted an idiotic, slanderous story to begin a well worn investigation about Russian Collusion. Like Russia and President Donald J. Trump actually needed to collude to inform America about the sicko habits of the bubblehead hilliary clintoon and her pervert/rapist husband.
The guilty are the conspirators who concocted and perpetuated the witch-hunt. LOCK 'EM UP.

Proud to be an American are you? With your vulgar and mean language. I do not hear any constructive, or proactive plans from most gun advocates. Just the John Wayne's holding their sacred 2nd amendment bronze signs near to their hearts with a big beer in hand. Pathetic.

You talk a lot of shit for someone that has openly advocated violence against law abiding citizens as part of your little scheme. Hypocrisy at its finest...

We've suggested better, more constructive ideas than you ever will. Get over yourself.

Please refrain from suggesting that I would impose undue harm to anyone that conforms to our laws. I only would advocate restrictive force against a perpetrator. For example: Physically taking a subject down, and not injuring him while he is pointing a gun at you is not a violent act.

Then stop lying and acting like you haven't!

What if that "perpetrator" is doing nothing more than defending their home and protecting their families?
