    My mom has severe depression issues that I been trying to convince her to go get help. She lives 1,000 miles away from me in some small town in Mexico. Reading that note sent chills down my body man. I am guilty of sometimes wanting to throw in the towel because her issues take a toll on my mental health, but I've stuck with her for the most part. I was raised by my grandmother and uncle from when I was 2 years old, but I kept my relationship with my birth mother over the years solid, even though I don't feel that same type of love I had for my grandmother (may she RIP). It's tough what she deals with though and there is no way I can think of that I can help her conquer her demons besides being there for her and providing some financial support for her to get help.

    Damn, that note ruined my day.

    The executive announcement was pretty much a nothing burger.


    Gun kits being treated as guns and being put on the back round checks

    An annual report on guns

    Classifying modified pistols with stabilizing braces as rifles

    Making it easier for states to CHOOSE to adopt red-flag laws

    Nominating an ATF director

    Then a number of things he's "encouraging" the senate to do, and things he just supports.

    If any of these sets your hair on fire, you're probably just an idiot just looking to get mad anytime Biden mentions something about guns.

    Ugh, sorry to hear about that situation. Parents or kids are a big part of life, and when they have troubles, those troubles become a big part of our lives.

    In other news, The Legion of Doom is "concerned" with the nomination of Superman to the Justice League of America. Spokesman Lex Luthor called into question hazy aspects of his history, and called him out as an illegal alien living off the largesse of the American people. Member Bizarro filed a lawsuit for his use of "blue kryptonite", an untested and unapproved chemical weapon to gain victory in their battles in direct violation of Bizarro's civil rights.

    I can see why he'd end up with a hedonistic worldview when his support network couldn't handle his issues that even drugs and crisis counseling couldn't resolve.

    I guess my lesson on this is to show more empathy with pain. Don't need people to be dripping pools of blood to react

    Not only Abbot its all of the Republicans, it's almost embarrassing to watch.

    His poll numbers must not be very good.

    This is the biggest mush I have seen in sometime.

    That really is the best criticism they can come up with? What about Hunter Biden.... and then Governor Power Grid throwing out slogans that mean nothing.

    He's a worthless Governor. I hope he gets voted out. It's like triple jeopardy for Texans with Abbott, Cruz and Paxton.

    Apparently all the infrastructure and vaccinations are going well enough in TX that he has time to rail about all these other things.

    I follow Abbott on Facebook, so I guess that's why I've seen more of his horseshit than anyone else. I also follow Rafael Cruz and Dan Crenshaw and even those guys are not bitching nearly as much (although they still are) as Abbott.

    Bad move on Biden in my opinion asking for a ban on types of firearms. That's going to create a lot of division.

    I'm all in on mandatory background checks for private sales though.

    man, I wouldn’t even know what to do if I was friends with someone suffering from depression as severe as those 2 kids

    I had a friend who committed suicide and it was a shock...never saw it coming

    Serious restrictions are a start. You can get a grenade launcher but you have to jump through insane hoops and waiting periods (my friend has one and told me it was a massive pita to get it). Why can’t we have that sort of strict review with assault rifles and semi automatic guns? I’m not against guns but you’d damn well better be qualified mentally.
