    Casting himself as ”the best friend gun owners have ever had in the White House,” Trump pledged to continue to protect gun owners’ rights, even as the country grapples with a crisis of gun violence and mass shootings that have left more than 3,000 dead since 2006.

    Trump Tells NRA Members 'No One Will Lay a Finger on Your Firearms' if He Returns to the White House

    Former President Donald Trump told thousands of members of the National Rifle Association that “no one will lay a finger on your firearms” if he returns to the White House, and bragged that during his time as president he “did nothing” to curb guns

    Paid for by the NRA, and ego stroked by Putin, like a good little puppet.

    I noted this in the Hangout thread but the shooting at Lakewood church didn’t seem to make national news.

    In a related note I was at a Super Bowl party with a reporter for the largest newspaper in Minnesota. He said that just gunfire or even finding a dead body no longer makes the news. Shootings has become so routine in this country it takes multiple or a prominent victim to make even local news.

    I stand corrected as CBS News is reporting on it.

    That's because the shooting was a woke minority woman

    @ROXRAN
    @CrixusTheUndefeatedGaul

    oh, she's been arrested multiple times before.. SHOCKER



    @basso
    @SuraGotMadHops
    @El_Conquistador

    Can someone tell woke people to take a mandatory GEOGRAPHY AND RELIGIOUS HISTORY Course?

    1. Houston Texas , and Lakewood Church are for Christians who live in Houston and enjoy a basketball arena experience
    2. There are NO JEWS at the Lakewood Church
    3. Palestine ain't located off 59 and especially in the arena that Vernon Maxwell built

    Woman with a history of mental health issues and previous weapons charges. But somehow was able to legally purchase an AR-15?

    Sounds like a mentally ill person who was influenced by stuff they saw on the news.

    Also someone who shouldn’t have been able to get this type of weapon.

    Sickening isn't it? I'm sure Greg Abbott will have some excuse for his loose gun laws, and find ways to pass the blame as usual while kissing the hands of the NRA who feed his pockets. Same with Cruz and the rest. When is enough enough? Why do Texans keep voting for these pigs who don't give a damn about making gun laws stricter and smarter? Democrats just want smarter gun laws. Wake up!

    I'm just wondering who shot the little boy in the head. Was it his sick mom or some bad shot by that off duty cop or other agent who had a gun? That shouldn't have happened. That poor child.

    The person was not the boy's "mom".

    Don’t know all the facts yet but it sounds like the child might’ve been shot in the cross fire.

    Noting how some seem more concerned about the shooters gender than that a person with a history of mental illness was able to get these weapons.

    What can go wrong with loose gun laws, open carry, and AR-15's sold to nutjobs? I'm so sick of Republicans and their NRA blood money being more important than common sense gun laws.

    At least 1 killed, multiple injured in shooting during Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl rally
    At least three people are in critical condition after shots were fired near Union Station at the end of the parade, officials said.
