Filed in National by on February 14, 2018

If the politicians we’ve elected really can’t do anything about gun violence, then we need new politicians. #guncontrolnow

    Gun control or gun regulation is a losing frame, like “welfare.”

    gun control gun safety or gun sanity

    NRA = soft on crime
    anti-assault weapons ban = pro mass killings

    Thanks I was typing out of anger

  3. mouse says:

    The irony is that guns makes us less safe and threaten our most basic freedoms and assumptions of safety while the feds spend another 90 billion a year on defense to defend us from what?

    puck, I hear you. But more children were slaughtered. I really don’t think better messaging is the issue.

  5. Jason330 says:

    The US is the only country where mass killings routinely occur. Any politician that accepts money from the gun lobby is pro-mass murder.

    Any politician that is a member of the NRA is pro-mass murder.

    Any politician that thinks we can’t do anything about gun violence is pro-mass murder.

    It is as simple as that.

    Cue the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young: “We have all been here before”, damned if we ain’t! A nation that did nothing after Sandy Hook will do nothing after another 17 kids are slain, the same people that sent the NRA money will do so again and pro gun politicians are dusting of an assortment of speeches about the 2nd amendment. Cowards like Coons, Carper and a great many others will say little and do less. The absolute only thing that gives me hope is that Big Tobacco as a lobby fell and was neutered to as large extent, and so same thing can happen to the NRA.

    So, Delaware has no requirement to purchase a permit or license to purchase a gun, no requirement to register or report a gun you own, we can open carry and there is no waiting period to purchase. With a Democratic majority, just where is the good sense at least among Democrats. Law enforcement wants gun safety protections and our Lege is full of former, retired or at least sympathetic to cops. Don’t blame all this carnage on the Feds. Get to work right here.

    Why isn’t anyone ever focusing on the fact that all of these shooters were on psychiatric drugs? While gun violence over all has been decreasing, school shootings have been increasing. What has changed? Maybe the massive amounts of brain altering pharmaceuticals we have been pumping into our children at young ages might have something to do with it. In 2017, big pharma spent $2.5 billion in the past decade while the NRA has spent $203 million since 1998. 27 international drug regulatory agencies warn about violence, but surprise, the FDA isn’t one of them.

    I know most of you just plain hate guns, but maybe we should focus on root causes instead of symptoms only. That type of thinking is the same as banning the internet because the Russians used it to tamper with our election process.

  9. Stan Merriman says:

    The latest shooter refused psych drugs and please validate this claim with evidence that any other mass shooter was on such drugs, including the Newtown killer. Many diagnosed mentally ill people, according to all the data, around half, stop taking their medications and can’t be forced to do so under the law, in some cases, unfortunately.

    “….maybe we should focus on root causes instead of symptoms only. That type of thinking is the same as banning the internet because the Russians used it to tamper with our election process.”

    More guns, more shootings and more deaths.

    Fewer guns, fewer shootings.

    The relationship is undeniable. That’s why the focus is now on guns where it belongs.

    The shit-for-brains crowd is out in force today. Must be scared their Russian overlords are going down.

    I look forward to using repurposing the detention centers built for immigrants to house Republicans while we process their treason convictions and prep them for the gallows.
