    The state, and the gun manufacturers owe these families all the money in the world.

    No, this country is what it has always been, multicultural. Now we see each other and realize we have nothing in common.

    I disagree with him, but I agree to the general principle. Let's be honest, democrats aren't the answers to everything. We need checks and balances.


    Maybe we vote in some free thinking conservatives that want to keep the guns out of bad people's hands, like the Democrats.

    The Democrats get fought at every turn by the GOP on stricter gun laws.

    Lol. Those don’t exist. They’re called Rinos if they don’t do everything Trump and OANN tell them to do.

    What is the purpose of permitless carry? Seriously, why?

    I still remember when Texas banned all concealed carry. Texas had previously banned concealed carry in the 1870s. The ban stood for over 120 years before the legislature repealed it in 1995. 25 years later Texas allows anyone to just walk around with a concealed weapon. Its amazing that the US is the one developed country that has basically rolled all of its gun laws backwards over time.

    We do not have a gun problem, we have a mental health problem! This is devastating! My prayers go out to all the families involved!

    * To signal how Republican the sponsors are and obtain power.
    * To intimidate and harass and murder, if necessary, the opposition and ensure they can never lose another election

    So cops engaged him before he even got into the school but couldn’t do anything because he was wearing body armor?

    Good guy with a gun theory in shambles.

    Good guy with a rocket launcher maybe?

    Or simply turning off his cable TV -- better option economically!

    Asked this before and considered making a poll but it would go nowhere. Mainly because people wouldn’t answer the question. They will either say it would never happen or other measures should be enacted. Basically schools run like prisons with that type of fencing and guards.

    Well let’s try anyway…

    As a handgun or assault rifle owner how many school shootings would you tolerate before you would voluntarily give up your guns and agree to an Australia type gun control?

    Monthly incidents like this? Weekly? Daily?

    Let’s say we had incidents like this every week. Would that be enough?
