The debate is dominated by hysterics from the right.
Mass shootings like Nashville ,which could be largely mitigated by universal health care and gun licensing at least the level of that for automobiles , become rants about gun-grabbing and leftists.
Looks like more people in red states are cool with lethal violence. Who knew?
The other comparable nations have mental illness, violent films and video games, gangs, single-parent families, dogma, doors in schools, gun ownership. And much less gun violence.
They don't have the Second Amendment. Repeal that (I know - snowball's chance) and then you might see some meaningful change. What's the point of making bills if they'll just be overturned by a panel of lifelong, politically appointed judges who simply vote along ideological lines anyway?
This nibbling round the edges; change an age limit here, extend a waiting period by a day or two there, isn't going to do it.
”… by universal health care”? How? Do you mean that gender dysphoria is back in the psychiatry/psychology handbook where it belonged?
I’m cool with a murderress (sic) of small children being shot to death by the police. No sympathy for her. She deserves none. I understand that she sought “suicide by cop”.
Meanwhile, the far left extremists take their eyes off the ball on issues that are more lethal than the rare shooting.
Kind of like trying to swat a fly while a swarm of bees buzzes around one's head.
The sad truth is that too many Americans love their guns more than other people's children.
It’s not a truth, sad or otherwise. It’s just a thoughtless and inflamatory statement.
When it comes to mass shootings, the US is a very sick country.
Look over there!
Good analogy. The fly is the rare violence from the extreme left, and the swarm of bees are the 20,000 violent gun deaths every year.
The reason gun control cannot be introduced is the pushback from gun lovers on both sides of the political divide. I'm sure they feel sorrow for the dead kids but not enough to give up their big boy toys.
The US had 647 mass shootings in 2022
125 mass shootings so far in 2023.
Americans need their guns for protection.
The state needs to be challenged and resisted
Trump people say we need more fortification like bullet proof windows and doors in schools and armed guards with heavy weaponry patrolling the school. Also metal detectors and the latest scanning technology like what you see airports. Ok! Sure! Now who is going to pay for that? Does this security fortification grow on trees?
