Yes. Heaven forbid the leader of the country with one of the (if not THE) worst gun violence problems on earth actually do something about it.  Someone might get their "freedom" hurt.
 
2017-10-03 10:13:35 AM  
Maybe it's time to end it.

Everything isn't so great, is this really a "better the devil you know" situation?

Well don't worry, toad, he won't.  Obama couldn't.  20 dead children didn't change anything.  50 dead night club revellers didn't change anything.  This won't either.

2 members of congress shot in public, didn't change anything.  And those guys are the ones that actually decide these things.

So is the military but you don't see Republicans hesitating to send them off to die in some miserable desert for no reason.  They love exploitable deaths.

The GOP is truly farked on this:  Do something or those people will turn against them.  For all the money the gun manufacturers give, they still count as one vote.

If you really really want Gun Control (TM) to happen, then liberals should start buying a ton of guns. Nothing like minorities open carrying to send these guys running to the Government for help.

As a politician you're a target. The kids in Connecticut were a one off tragedy and also east coast elites probably. Pulse was a gay club full of latins.

Now Joe Bob has can't take Bertha May to go see (I don't know any current country music acts) without worrying about catching a bullet.

Bannon - your dick probably stopped working years ago. It's dead & gone.
No amount of weaponry is ever going to compensate for its loss.
 
2017-10-03 10:50:43 AM  
Don't worry.  At the rate we're going more and more people will be so affected by gun violence that the public opinion will eventually shift, e.g. country singer Caleb Keeter, saying, ""I've been a proponent of the 2nd Amendment my entire life. Until the events of last night. I cannot express how wrong I was,"   Now the next shooter will be compelled to have a higher count than Las Vegas.

That's the NRA's narrative, though.

"Black and brown people are packing... I mean PACKING.  They have more guns and illegal ammo than they know what to do with, and they want YOUR home and YOUR women.  You'd better man up and get yourself some balls guns too, before you lose everything to Leroy and Juan."

At this point I want to know what sort of deal Bannon made with Death himself.  It must have been a hell of a deal, because Bannon looks like he died, was buried for 2-3 weeks, exhumed, and brought back to life with the dark arts.

Dick Cheney scoffs at you while he shops online for his next heart.

Only to find Henry Kissinger beat him to it.

Trump and his sons are also personally close with the NRA, some sources told Axios and Trump is reportedly friends with the NRA's top lobbyist.

Potter's not selling Congressmen, Potter's buying Congresmen.

In the first two quarters of of 2017, the National Rifle Association has already spent more on lobbying than it did in all of last year.

Actually, liberals started buying guns in greater numbers shortly after the election.

What are the odds that sometime soon a few Democrats sneak into the White House and have him propose a federal firearm registry and watch list for anyone who accumulates more than a few guns in a short period of time?

He's shown to be bitter and vindictive enough to go along with legislation against the GOP site's interests if it hurts Ryan and McConnell. Just show him how many approve of mandatory registration or universal background checks, get him hooked on how many will love him for it... Just not his rabid fanbase.
 
2017-10-03 12:45:08 PM  
So Trump has two major incidents happen within a week (Puerto Rico devastation, Las Vegas massacre) and I expect his response to Vegas will be as pathetic as his response to Puerto Rico.

The problem is there is a practical difference between a black man open carrying and a white man open carrying. I live in a state where open carry is the law. But if I tried to walk down the street with a gun on my hip I would be lucky to make it to point B alive, or at least not tackled to the sidewalk at gunpoint.

Republicans surely know the police would take care of any "minority second amendment movement" the only way they know how, regardless of the laws on the books.
 
2017-10-03 12:46:09 PM  
Well bless his heart.
 
2017-10-03 12:48:30 PM  
So; we're going for gun laws that unfairly impact minorities, women and the poor?
 
2017-10-03 12:48:37 PM  
So, make the guns he used triple dog illegal instead of just illegal?  That seems to work for drugs

I agree with this, but minorities open carrying is gonna result in a lot of minorities gunned down by cops and by panicky white people. I have trouble telling minorities to sign up to die to advance the cause.

"Guns have nothing to do with crime!  The crime rate's been dropping for 30 years!"
"Very true.  So why do you feel like you need so many guns?"
"Because of all the crime!"
 
2017-10-03 12:56:18 PM  
And the guntards are actually blaming this on the Democrats as a reason to take their guns.

Well, the ones they have left after Obama took them all anyway.

Hey Bannon - I thought you were against the Republican establishment?  Go up against the NRA if you want to gut the establishment.

Limit civilian arms to semi-auto (5 shots or less ONLY). Confiscate all known fully automatic weapons. Any modified weapon found would result in a firearm ban for x amount of years.

It's not perfect but it's a start.

Anyone suggested a Bannon hunt?  There's nothing more graceful than watching a fat, alcoholic, blotchy hedgefund anarchist running for life across the 9th hole fairway while hot dum-dums are whizzing overhead.

Gun control shouldn't mean an absence of guns, just guns put to better uses.
 
2017-10-03 01:24:14 PM  
It's looking more and more like this guy was either seriously mentally ill, OR, just a homicidal asshole.  A self-centered, entitled rich child who spent his time gambling and collecting guns.  The very definition of white male privilege.  So these people died and were horribly wounded to satisfy his desire for bloodlust.

I wonder how the GOP will spin this.
 
2017-10-03 01:24:58 PM  
This sucks.    I hate o Reilly but he was right yesterday.   This is the price we pay for freedom.   Crazy people can do damage.
