  1. Its just a feint. I mean, even if teacher are so armed that shooters don't shoot up schools, there's no rule that says they can't shoot up some other place. The people who support this idea are responsible for the problem. They are in no position to solve it. They are beholden to the gun industry. They want everyone armed. They'll only make it worse.
  2. Respect, at least in this case, is, I think, pretty relative.
  3. Again, California was in the bag. Why bother? I'm just funnin' ya. I know you don't care.
  4. You kind of undermine your own point and highlight your own gullibility, as it would be pointless to cheat where it doesn't matter.
  5. If half of Johnson's votes and most of Stein's votes had gone to Clinton, she may well have won. And they are both kind of nutty. Kasich isn't. What's the difference between Biden and Clinton?
  6. "“When journalists can’t, or won’t, distinguish between allegations directed at the Trump Foundation and those directed at the Clinton Foundation, there’s something seriously amiss. And false equivalencies are developing on a grand scale as a result of relentlessly negative news. If everything and everyone is portrayed negatively, there’s a leveling effect that opens the door to charlatans,” wrote Thomas Patterson in the Shorenstein study." Link This is basically what you do, with the same unfortunate results.
  7. I think Rubio may run against Trump.
  8. As do your false equivalencies.
  9. He'll just take votes from moderate Republicans who would otherwise vote Democratic rather than vote for Trump.
  10. Oh,, cryptic cleverness. Now go wash the blood off your hands.
  11. The United States has far more gun violence than the rest of the western world. This country has a gun problem. You don't think the NRA has played a role in this? Their answer is always more guns. It should be clear to anyone with a brain between their ears that this contributing to the problem, not solving it.
  12. All the thoughts and prayers legislators have performed after each gun massacre should tell us what God thinks of us.
  13. It would ensure Trump's re-election.
  14. The Republicans have shown that they support this kind of thing, as long as it involves a man and a girl.
  15. Conservatives should be ashamed of these demagogues. But what else is new?
  16. You interpret the constitution in such a way that promotes mass murder and carnage. No one requires you to do that. It is not patriotic. It is a cop-out because you cannot defend your view on reasonable grounds and most certainly not on humanitatiansor even humanitarian grounds., "But for the 70 years or so before a supreme court decision in 2008, he said, “the supreme court and federal courts held that it only applied in the context of militias, the right of states to protect themselves from federal interference”. In 2008, the supreme court decided the District of Columbia v Heller, 5-4 , overturning a handgun ban in the city. The conservative justice Antonin Scalia wrote the opinion in narrow but unprecedented terms: for the first time in the country’s history, the supreme court explicitly affirmed an individual’s right to keep a weapon at home for self-defense. Justice John Paul Stevens dissented, saying the decision showed disrespect “for the well-settled views of all of our predecessors on the court, and for the rule of law itself”. Two years later, he dissented from another decision favoring gun rights, writing: Link You do not own the constitution. You are simply hiding behind it.
  17. There are quite a few variables, but one thing we know for sure - more guns means more gun violence.
  18. Slaughter as a reflection of patriotism. Good Lord, what a sordid sentiment.
  19. The policies you support have given us this. Own it.
  20. Yeah, thanks for helping ensure there are tens of millions of weapons in our country. You are the problem, And then you wrap yourself in your moral piety of pro-life. The hypocrisy is revolting, Guns are very sexy. They are symbolic extensions of the penis.
  21. Actually, its a rhetorical question because your question is absurd and typical of the paranoia of many gun advocates who thus earn the justifiable moniker of "gun nut".
