    Well, here's the deal: The President will have to cave to Moderates at some point, or risk losing support in the 2020 elections. True enough, he is no friend to the 2nd Amendment, but at the same time, no current Democrat candidate is either. Quite the opposite, in fact. All (except Biden) have called for a reversal on the Second Amendment completely, all the while OPENLY advocating gun confiscation. This has never happened in the past...whatever Democrat candidate was running for office has always said that they're not coming for your guns. Yet this time, they are openly brazen about it. Why? Because they feel that they have the support of at least HALF of the country. The next year is gonna be a [email protected]# storm. I hope I am wrong.

    Wrong. Refusing to cave on gun rights will not lose him any support from the right or left.

    The left already hates him and the right will never waver after what they have seen the last 10 years. There are very few left in the middle with how polarized this country is and those who are in the middle care way more about the economy than gun rights.

    The only people who lose in all this "compromise" are the American people. The only people who win are the statists.

The only difference "class" brings is access to credit cards and learning to drive by the time you're 18.

    Of the top 25 world's worst mass shootings, two happened in America. Norway is first in deaths from mass shootings when measured by death rate per million of population. France has strict gun laws but is ahead of the U.S. in mass shootings.

    1. Norway 1.888
    2. Serbia .381
    3. France .347
    4. Macedonia .337
    5. Albania .206
    6. Slovakia
    7. Findland
    8. Belgium
    9. Czech Republic
    11. United States

    There were also 27% more casualties from 2009 to 2015 per mass shooting incident in the European Union than in America. Deaths from knives is five times higher than rifles in America.

    I will post this again as I have posted on here before about gun ownership in America. If there was a gun problem in America, you would know it.

    400 million civilian guns
    75 million in India - country with the second highest gun ownership
    1 million - guns owned by American cops
    4.5 million - guns owned by the U.S. military
    22.7 million - guns owned by cops worldwide
    In a 5 year time period Americans buy more guns than all militaries combined

    Facts are outweighed by fee-fees. Argument invalid.

    In a twisted way, the prolonged and extended 'childhood' idea (25 is the last year someone can be covered under a parent's insurance as a dependent. Can't rent a car until then too) is both perverse and a double standard. I find it interesting that there are people wanting the voting age dropped to 16 but long gun purchases increased to 21. The old cry of 'you can die for your country but you cant drink ' at 18 falls apart. Heh.. if anything, the military beating some discipline into the youth of America might not be such a bad thing. Unfortunately there are no ramps on the obstacle course so the mobility scooters have got to go... Into a pit before the first set of monkey bar rungs.

    We're living in some stupid dangerous times.

    I consider myself pretty conservative, basically, right of Attila the Hun. And quite contrary to your statement regarding the right never admitting the need for publicly funded mental health services, I fully support, and advocate taxpayer funded mental institutions where those in need may receive treatment, and where needed, mental institutionalization with long term care.

    Never happen. All of those services have been weened away. Hence, all of the mentally ill that wonder our streets, scare our children and shit in the street gutter for all to admire until it’s washed away...probably by a tax paid employee. You know if we start throwing money at a problem here at home we have less money for fighting someone else’s fight on foreign soil or water. I never understood why we don’t take care of our own before we run off to a foreign land to help people that openly despise us.

    If we had gov care for mental health on the scale needed, it would end up being manipulated to jail like facilities, where the people who need help end up being abused by government paid contractors.

    Not only that, but it would be way too easy for someone to go "lol I red flag u" and you get sent in front of some anti-2nd judge who goes " you like guns huh? I deem you insane! TO THE CRAZATORIUM!"

    Kind of old news by now. At least Texas is still being gun friendly. 8 gun regulations loosened starting September 1.

    While it's a good start I don't see taxes as being all that gun friendly, at least not more than any other "gun friendly" state.

    Disasters are rare and the amount of time, and the amount of adults, spends in school/church is nothing compared to how many people spend their time shopping and eating. Still have no gun signs and still can't carry into a restaurant that serves alcohol
