    Someone needs to teach her how hold a gun. Right index finger extended to be prepared for shooting and extended when not shooting to prevent accidental contact firing the gun.

    You don't think a gun BAN would have stopped someone using a gun?
    Now run that by me again with a straight face.

    With a gun ban he may still have committed suicide but a dozen or so other people would still be alive.

    So what? It doesn't matter where the guns come from. The point is gun laws are stupid.

    Does the drug ban stop folks from using drugs?

    You still have to post anything logical, mate.
    In fact the more often these murders happen, the more illogical the defense becomes.

    There is no requirement to teach anyone anything, which is probably we have so many accidental firearm deaths.

    But.....she is not the governor of Virginia, - Youngkin is.

    What drug ban?
    When there is one, you can answer that yourself.
    Once again, an illogical defense of guns.

    The list is clearly racist towards blacks. When blacks shoot people it's just! AMIRITE?!! Can I get an "aye mon!"?

    Take a look over yonder towards Iran and tell me again why it would be a good thing to disarm the population.

    Does the USA support a revolutionary guard?
    I am surprised that you don't support your own military.
    After all they have sworn to protect the country in your name.

    I am no longer. That aside, the NRA is still a rip off.

    I went back to check how much rage you had for the University of Virginia football team mass shooting and low and behold, I could hardly find a whisper from the angry left. Selective anger at it's finest. While the UVA killings will fade into obscurity since if doesn't fit the proper narrative, the Club Q will be in the headlines for months with the liberal left showing their righteous faux anger as the "proper" narrative can be soaked for a few months.

    looks like hunting to me. Quite different from a Wal Mart employee with a handgun shooting folks and himself

    Random is the key word. If a killing is random it means anyone could die, even you. That puts it affecting the general population. A directed homicide is just that directed, not random.

    Liberals need to step up to the plate and repeal the 2nd Amendment. Stop talking and do it. People in States like VA need to feel and be safe like people are in sensible liberal controlled areas like NYC.

    Right. I wonder why so many people want to come to America.

    You must be one of those brits or aussies who limit self defense to a rape whistle. lol

    I bet those people in North Korea feel pretty safe, what with no gun ownership. Eh what?

    I do support my military. However when you watch other populations that are unarmed being oppressed is a great example as to why you should NEVER disarm the population.

    What you seem to be unable to grasp is the simple reality that criminals, including murderers, do not obey laws.

    If or when your dream of a gun free America comes true, determined killers will simply resort to crude WMDs that kill even more people.

    An example I have frequently cited proves you wrong (1).

    The determined killer in this instance couldn't find a gun to kill just one person, an ex-girlfriend, so he fabricates a crude WMD using only one dollar's worth of gasoline that killed his ex girlfriend and 86 additional people.

    There's a reason that there are over 60 countries in the world(2) that have the most draconian gun laws on this planet and have higher homicide rates than the US you hate so much.

    If draconian gun bans worked in reducing homicide rates, they would work everywhere, not just in the cherry picked "developed" countries that are nothing like the US.

    So, with or without the 2nd Amendment, determined killers will always find a way to kill.



    (1) "Happy Land fire"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Land_fire

    EXCERPT "González went to an Amoco gas station, then returned to the establishment with a plastic container with $1 worth of gasoline. He spread the fuel at the base of a staircase, the only access into the club, and then ignited the gasoline.

    Eighty-seven people died in the resulting fire."CONTINUED

    Liberals are free to attempt to amend the Constitution anytime they want to.

    Inadequate? Our healthcare system is great. I have great doctors, great insurance and can easily get doctor appointments. My health care is not rationed. Why do you suppose US healthcare is inadequate? It is the best in the World. Pretty sure you don't live here and have nt direct experience. But feel free to respond with your "facts."

    If the oil industry is buying politicians they are doing a poor job of it considering the war on oil being run by Biden and other libs.

    It is absure to call the Supreme court "nut jobs" for voting in alignment with the US Constitution. Feel free to tell us where in the US Constitution you think a right to an abortion is spelled out if that is what you are complaining about.

    Americans like our Constitution and if Europeans don't like it well go take a flying [deleted].

    So I have to ask. What country is your role model for government?

    They keep swarming into the WV panhandle from the DC area, but so far have not succeeded in gaining control. Libs that have the 2nd Amendment should move to MD, one of the most liberal States in the US.

    I read it was a store manager. Sounds like they promote great people. More reasons for democrats to attack the gun rather than the individual that committed the crime. It was also a pistol. Not said whether it’s a semi auto pistol or a revolver. They also have said that there was no past police history with this person. So what’s your solution other than thoughts and prayers. No past violent history, and used a pistol. What legislative agenda would have prevented this?

    If they didn’t feel safe I’m sure there would be enough support to change the second amendment or do away with it but there is not. That tells me that plenty feel safe.

    The French are the first to give up rights. And even handed their country to Hitler the second he was at their door step. We won’t ever take French advice on fear.

    that wasn't his intention with that comment. It is much broader in scope.

    Nonsense
    In every primary stable country the military defends the government . Unless the elected government tries to overturn the results of the election, there no need for the military to rise up against the people who elected it.
    IOW unless the government commands the military to support a coup, the military protects your elected government.

    This excuse to carry guns is utterly illogical. And a purely imaginary scare story.
