How dare they take away my god given right to carry an Ar-15 in Texas!!!

How Dare the Gun Grabber in Chief speak at an NRA Event.

All Gun People Protest the NRA FOR SUPPORTING THIS POLICY OF TAKING AWAY OUR RIGHT TO CARRY GIANT PENII.

They have to- Trump's Secret Service detail won't let armed people around VIPs like a former president.

Open season on the little people.  (Literally)
 
2022-05-25 9:22:02 AM  
Won't there be enough "good guys with guns" to negate any possible "bad guys with guns" at an NRA event? If not, why not? He shouldn't even need Secret Service protection at the convention.

No one has to take Secret Service detail. If he was so sure he would be safe around all the good guys with guns he could wave it there.

we spend more on police and law enforcement than any other nation on the planet, yet we are less safe than most industrialized nations.

we have the highest per-capita, incineration rate in the world.  we have had over 200 mass shootings this year alone.

the old way is not working, so its time to try new things.    the GQP needs to get out of the way.

what if a bad guy with a gun shows up and there are no armed teachers to stop him?

NewportBarGuy: When do we ban the NRA?


Never, we can't match their bribes.
 
2022-05-25 9:28:20 AM  
I have been to the derposphere!

The deplorables tell themselves the reason mass shootings happen, the ONLY reason, is because the places they happen ban guns. Since guns are banned there the place becomes a target.


So the NRA is making a big mistake by banning guns.  According to their own logic banning guns at the event makes it extremely likely that a gun toting maniac will show up and start shooting.

Chessmatic, libs.

If the massacre yesterday had occurred at an expensive private school in DC favored by the political elite (eg. St Albans, Sidwell), gun legislation would be passed and signed into law by lunchtime today

Sandy Hook is an affluent majority-white school district, and that didn't move the needle.

I'm literally planning my exit from this country. I can't take it any more. It's not just the violence, it's the absolute lack of will to do anything about ANYTHING, and the fact that most of it is calculated by Republicans to 'own the libs' in any way possible.

It's stunning how childish and selfish this nation has become, how bought and sold our politicians are. The white supremacists are right about one thing: this is NOT the America I grew up in. It may have been cancerous before, but now it's a tumor the size of Florida.
 
2022-05-25 9:36:05 AM  
Wait, hold on. If "guns don't kill people, people kill people" and you can identify those people that shouldn't have a gun through psychology (science) what does the NRA need with a gun ban at an NRA event?

The Buffalo shooter was shot by a security guard, but he was wearing body armor and shot the good guy with the gun.

No, you're looking at the wrong measures of success. Lots of republicans are rich, and getting richer. By that standard, one of the most successful nations on earth. Just china and maybe russia have more obscenely wealthy, objectively evil leaders. USA! USA! USA!
 
2022-05-25 9:42:38 AM  
They're actually going through with it? Even though they don't give a shiat, you'd think for optics' sake, they'd at least pretend to give a shiat and cancel it. Farking vermin. All of them. Soulless, craven vermin.

damned autocorrect hates me.

since 1994 the only federal laws passed regarding fire arms have been to protect gun manufacturers and retailers, never the victims.

2nd amendment rights have been the only rights that the GQP has advocated for this century.

they have lost their way and the only thing they can offer are empty platitudes.

I would like a memorial across the street from the NRA's love fest, with photos, names of every child killed by a gun in the last 20 years. With their relatives-standing there, quietly. Invite every press outfit from all over the world to film this. Quietly. No need to rant, no need to rave. Crying, sobbing, yes. But, don't feed into the right wing rage. Of course this being Texas-never going to happen.
I can't look at the coverage of the carnage anymore. I am not numb to it, it is awful beyond words. I feel helpless in trying to rein in the mindset of the gun nutters. I grew up with guns, father, sister, brother went skeet/trap shooting. I lived in Philly for a long time and saw what gun violence did when yet another 15 year old in a wheel chair went into the exam room for a post op visit and it was obvious they were part of a gang-lucky to be alive, unlucky to never walk again.
I see the stickers on the local cars and trucks, proudly proclaiming in the usual verbiage of "my guns, my rights" of their pride in potential carnage. Stickers that would never, ever be used in Philly, NYC, LA.....
It's a shame the pride of the ignorance, fear, loathing, hate this group has clung to with a fierceness of not having much else in their world view of any worth.

Too many people think politics works on a "A Time to Kill" speech, ala "...now imagine she was white."

That may have worked a few decades ago, but right wingers are on self stigginit mode at this point.

Why?  The past two weeks have been a huge success for them.  They know they'll sell tons more guns based around "THE LIBS ARE COMING TO TAKE YOUR GUNS BECAUSE OF FLASE FLAG SOROS SHOOTINGS!" and that no actual restrictions on guns will be passed.

A few years ago the local cop union organized a cruise to nowhere for their members.  On the top of the FIY list it said:  "DO NOT BRING FIREARMS ON THE SHIP."

Not surprising.

All the 'Pro-Second Amendment' stance and flexing from the NRA vanishes in a flash when confronted with 'scary' situations and the 'wrong' people having access to guns.

California's gun control laws really started when the Black Panther Party began calling for the residents of Oakland to arm themselves and police their own streets in the face of the racism endemic to the OPD at the time. Talk started up in the State Legislature of trying to restrict open carry in the State. The BPP went to Sacramento to protest at the capitol, with rifles, as permitted under California law then. The sight of a few dozen armed Black men at the Capitol steps, not even in the Capitol building itself, accelerated the bill, and the Mulford Act was passed with the blessings of the NRA and Saint Regan. Thus beginning California's 'legacy of gun grabbing'.

I mean, to be fair they didn't have a choice but it is funny as shiat they had to be told.
