    You disgust me if you say I defend racism. I defend against racists. I defend against people stereotyping out of hate.

    I don't agree with homophobic politics, hate groups, or politicians who speak at their rallies or try to suppress gays and minorities in any way. I don't agree with politicians using the bible thumping righteous act to deflect their own hate or bigotry towards gays. I don't believe in stereotyping poor people as lazy and uneducated people, and I don't agree with anyone who says if the poor can't afford healthcare it's their problem. I get disgusted when politicians stereotype gays or people who accept them as equals as child groomers or pedophiles.
    I don't believe in stereotyping people who stand up against bigotry or hate as wokesters.

    I don't defend liars, sexual abusers, or violent people, regardless of their skin color. I don't defend racists of any color. I believe in equality and treating everyone with respect as long as they aren't hurting anyone else with their lifestyle. You just got your panties in a wad because you didn't want to hear the truth. The fact is that out of 123 mass shootings 98% were male shooters. The fact is that in 53% of all mass shootings the shooter was white. I just took an educated guess.

    Tell me. Do you believe all people should be treated equal, regardless of their skin color, gender, or sexual orientation? Do you believe calling BLM thugs and looters is stereotyping? Do you believe ANTIFA are leftist Democrats? Do you think politicians should speak at White Supremasist rallies? Do you think the KKK and Proud Boys and hate groups should be labeled domestic terrorists? Do you agree that domestic terrorists are more of a threat here than international terrorists? Muslims seems to be the big stereotypical fear.

    Do you believe it's ok for civilians to purchase semi-automatic weapons? Do you think it's smart that Americans can purchase a gun, carry around a loaded gun without any type of training, such as a written exam on gun safety and a practical test to show they know how to safely use a weapon designed to kill?

    • The majority of domestic violence is committed by men, while the majority of victims are female.
    • In an average month, at least 52 American women are shot and killed by an intimate partner, and many more survive with injuries.

    Either way, I’m out of this section.
    Some extremes on both sides of the aisles down here.
    Back to sports.

    I do wish there was a solution for these occurrences.

    The mayor seemed to really not have trouble answering this question:

    Prayers are important but I absolutely agree with your comment in the latter part of your sentence

    Fine to pray - what I mean is it is not enough and cannot serve as a substitute for taking action that finally protects our children better.

    What is most shocking to me about this event is the behavior of the police. Their response should be massive scandal that should form a part of every conversation that we have on this topic. Cops simply cannot be relied on to protect students. Maybe nothing less than the US Army is capable of doing the job - are they going to support that, too?

    Yep. This isn’t nearly as big of an issue as a football player kneeling to the anthem or anything. Republicans never politicize events.

    Some do, but its on a whole other lvl here... Just this thread turned into a stupid "take their guns" argument instead of being respectful towards this tragedy. It should never happen.... Its sad that it did.

    What's your alternative? Continue to do absolutely nothing like the repubs? More thoughts and prayers? The tragedy happened...again. Should Democrats just be like dumbass NRA money taking republicans and do squat? What is your suggestion or alternative? Do you have anything of substance to add to this discussion at all or just more whiny bulls*** because one side is screaming to do something and the other is just preparing to speak at the NRA conference?

    Lol. That dumb story was in the news for years. This will be forgotten by the next mass shooting in the next few days.

    Do what? They aren't taking $hit away.. They can push as hard as they want and take advantage of tragedies but its not that simple. Should we take away cars as well? Because a criminal sick demented &uck ran into a Christimas parade less than 12 months ago killing 5 and causing injury to many more... If someone wants to harm others they will find a way, guns or no guns..... Difference is Criminals will always find ways to have guns, the people who legally and responsibly own guns wont.
