All I see on here is whining about republicans and the NRA. Social media provides a unique platform for you guys to educate and rally those who are misinformed about this topic and all you do is blame republicans for not liking Obama. Why is it that in a gun control utopia like Chicago you can commit aggravated robbery (robbery with a deadly weapon like a gun) and get as little as 4 years with the possibility of parole. Take a plea deal and get even less. In Connecticut Adam Lanza murders 20 children and 6 adults and in that state the worst that would have happened to him is life in prison because the 8th amendment protects him from the punishment he deserves or he could hide behind his mental illness and not even get sent to jail. If you want common sense gun control pushed do your homework, get schooled up on the subject, and battle your right wing gun owning enemies with logic instead of emotion because we’re not moved by awful actions of a few evil drastically small percentage of individuals. Until then you will keep seeing the red wing stop crap laws that you openly admit might only save one life at the cost of treading on millions of pissed off gun owners who aren’t willing to compromise. By all means keep crying on tv keep crying on forums tears won’t save lives and it definitely won’t change laws.
Sadly, Americans have become fearful and paranoid for no good reason other than that certain media outlets pursue relentless fear mongering as a way to raise their ratings. No rational human being should be concerned that all individuals interested in purchasing a weapon should have a background check unless of course you are a felon, etc.
Present background checks prevent thousands of criminals from getting guns every year. Updating the system to include Internet and gun shows on a national basis will increase their effectiveness. Better screening of mental disturbed young men having access to assault weapons will stop many mass shootings. Maybe Rep would rather have us sell guns at 7-11 without any regulations?
Perhaps look at another example, Japan took away the right of Japanese citizen to openly carry their Samurai sword, which is a tradition. I don’t remember that fix any sword or knife violence in Japan. Gun laws or knife laws can help, but the real problem is people. Obama should also propose how to fix those peoples that will potentially use gun or knife to kill people.
We need out of country gun control get it right people yes wrong people are having guns but that’s still not going to stop them having guns there are like billions of guns out there not even registered and also hand made guns out there you’re not goingto stop it it is pathetic what he is doing he is trying to get the weapons from us so him and his buddies can attack us he is a secret bad man and none of you can see it
I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think why anyone would support this obviously racist, bigoted, low life of a man called “Donald Trump” then it came to me. These people are scared. They are not scared of Immigrants or Obama,
They are afraid of losing “it”. This former majority have now become the minority and they are scared. They don’t want to evolve with the times so they go on the offensive. They start buying more guns, deny climate change, burn down Black churches and Planned Parenthood offices, Increase the hate crimes and domestic terrorist attacks.
And for what? “Fear”. They are trying to hold on to the past and they see this as their “Last Stand” and Trump is their “General Custer” or “Great white hope”. Well, those of us who read know what happened to Custer. Hopefully this will be the last stand for open racism, bigotry and hate crimes. With any luck, if we join together against racism and hate and with the help of progressive, forward thinking people (from all political parties), we will force the racist and/or bigots to crawl back into the holes where they came from. And who knows? Maybe, just maybe, Some may even crawl out of their holes to see the light of peace & harmony with others..
