      Somebody yells, "Second Amendment rights" and we  piss our pants!

      Huh?

      ..............too bad if it's not "politically convenient" for democrats to do what needs to be done.
      It had better become "politically convenient."

      Literally----lives hang in the balance.

      We're not asking for a miracle---here----all we're asking for is what they supposedly do best.:

      Legislation.

      How can our legislators even look people in the eye in this country?

      A huge---powerful country like this and we cannot control public shooting massacres?

      Ludicrous-----and shameful.

        by thinking that more people like them with more guns can prevent gun massacres from happening if only they had been able to be at the perfect place at the perfect time to stop the shooter with a perfectly placed shot from their perfectly aimed gun from their perfect situation awareness and their perfect training.

        I understand wanting to serve, I understanding wanting to be a hero. What I don't understand is wanting to be and thinking they can be a superhero. But, they're more afraid of government than random wackaloons hell bent on homicide.

          Great point-

          ..............thinking that more people like them with more guns can prevent gun massacres from happening if only they had been able to be at the perfect place at the perfect time to stop the shooter with a perfectly placed shot from their perfectly aimed gun from their perfect situation awareness and their perfect training.
          This is fantasy-thinking----but being shot and killed is not a fantasy for the victims.

          Dead is dead----and dead is forever.
