    I still havent heard a half decent argument here why people need to own AR-15's and similar forms of weapons?

    Unsung has posted so many fake pics it's unreal... why the hell do you keep swallowing obvious garbage?

    Interesting tidbit from the Russian social media campaign... if you believe in such things... they use fake pics and memes because it's been found humans process pictures differently and tend to assume it's real so its more effective 

    I have $20 that's a fake pic

    So. Who cares?

    Do you have to know the specifications to understand they are a problem? Really... you only need a third of a functioning brain.
    I do think when protesting you should proofread your signs in order to not look like a fool.  Imagine how the credibility of the civil rights movement would be impacted if they marched around with signs that read "fredome now!" or "End Jimm Crowe!"

    Fair enough.

    I gotta be honest... I feel the idiot disbursement is weighted disproportionately to one side.

    Unfortunately it's real. They messed up. Not like that makes a difference on whether gun violence is a problem, but lets deflect because it's fun to do that instead of address a problem.

    As a gun owner and 2nd amendment supporter, I'll be honest with you... There isn't a need to own any semi-auto rifle. They're fun to shoot at the range, but there's no need for them.

    I was merely talking from a general public standpoint. I'm fine with law enforcement carrying them

    Went to the hospital today... didn't see any armed nurses or doctors... but I did see trained constables that were armed... sort if reminded me of our school debate

    Should we allow nurses and general hospital staff to carry firearms?

    No, and they wouldn't want to. Talk about dangerous, especially in the ER. Not to mention immoral, really. The psychological effect of armed nurses and doctors on patients would be pretty harmful IMO. Plus it would prevent anyone worried about law enforcement from visiting hospitals when they need to. Lots of horrible consequences would come out of this idea.

    We just had about 800 out of 1200 students protest nonviolently in memory of the 17 people who lost their lives in the recent attack.  I would say the vast majority sat there in silence, pretty cool stuff.

    Yeah, no shit.
    Trump's current plan is just more pandering to the NRA for fuck's sake. I mean, the NRA must be licking their chops over this one - it's like a dream come true for them.
