    And I’m for people no matter what ideological leaning they are to have to go through comprehensive background checks including mental health screenings from possessing firearms.

    So a portion of it was leaked while the court case continued on whether it should be released. As for the reason why it hasn't been released (if it ever will be), you know, perhaps you should read about it from something other than a tweet from your echo chamber.

    FOX 17 News reported in May that several Covenant parents did not want the manifesto to be released, citing the risk it could encourage copycat attacks and traumatize survivors.

    “The parents seek to shield their children from further harm and trauma, including pain that would fester for the rest of their lives if the shooter, their assailant, is allowed to haunt them from beyond the grave," an attorney for the parents wrote in a legal brief.

    Funny they always name Chicago, but not Memphis, TN, which has a higher murder rate per capita. Probably because TN is full of MAGAs.

    New Orleans had the highest homicide rate in the nation in 2022 with 74.3 homicides per 100,000 people.

    Guys like Trump and the rest never bring that up. He's always talking about NYC and Chicago. The bloodshed happens daily in those red states though.

    you have not been to Memphis lately. all the MAGA types moved out east. Memphis itself, where the murders happen, is Biden country.

    In a Red State, where the right to arm up is valued more than the over 13.6% living in poverty, affordable healthcare, and education.

    it's just black folks killing each other. same in Chicago, or Oakland. no one actually cares, least of all libs, unless white folks are killing blacks, or gays, or children.

    black children killing black children on the streets of Memphrica? liberals don't give a ****.

    Raw numbers wouldn't be a comparison since Chicago's population is so much larger. That's why comparisons are per 100,000. I know you already know that but you are determined to argue no matter how wrong you are. So keep on... we need the laughs.

    I care. I hate violence. I don't care what race, gender, or political party the victim is.

    Chicago does not have a greater population than Missouri.

    Do you think the gun violence problem is in The Woodlands? Or in the 5th Ward? Statistics have proven where the problem is. It's among Democrat voters. If we want to see progress, the Democrats should step up and ban themselves from owning guns. The overwhelming majority of gun crimes are committed by people who vote with Democrats. Be a leader! Disarm your people and set an example for others to follow. If not, then sit down.
