    How about you stop selling firearms.

    Not exactly sure how an assault-rifle ban could be considered over-reacting, since it was the law of the land (and apparently worked) not that long ago.

    Somewhere in the past week I read a piece by a firearms owner who said that when he started, gun enthusiasts thought owning an AR-15 was very weird, but that after 9-11 they became standard for guys who owned multiple guns.

    If you remember the Bundys and the Oregon refuge takeover - the final takedown happened when the group was heading up the road to meet with this sheriff.

    On an unrelated front - I do think video games may have something to do with how young white men become so socially isolated they are able to contemplate one of these mass shootings, human interaction being such a foreign concept to them.

    Sorry, but no. That's not enough. They should also be testing if the person knows how to use it and how to store it properly.

    So one thing the “whataboutists “, trumpists, gop and “both sides” commentators and politicians need to realize when they note that some of these events may be perpetrated by liberals, etc.: either way it’s the president, Moscow Mitch and the gop members of Congress responsibility to do something because they are the ones in office now.
