    Yeah!

    As if some wealthy public figure ever hired a rent boy while his wife was away. Would never happen.

    Well that's too bad we can't make the world safe for everyone by passing a million laws that affect the rest of us that know how to control ourselves...

    did I say we could, all I said is people like her should not choose to carry guns, you seem to disagree?

    we all have a choice to make when it comes to having guns, I am just saying people that can't control their temper\emotions, should not choose not to carry one

    this is about personal responsibility, not government choosing for you

    Yet they have no problem discussing the miniscule amount of white on black crime compared to the other way around.... And it's always racist anytime a white person victimizes a black but if you report on black people victimizing white people it's because racism...

    People like her? Because you think she's mentally ill, or because you feel she has a criminal history that would preclude ownership? Or is it because you don't think Black citizens should be alowed to own guns?

    One can glean nothing from the "news", the reporting dried up at "unstable", "said she needed help". Go look, there is nothing being reported on Corlunda Mcginister's history of either mental health concerns or criminal activity.

    Cheers,
    Labour

    because she pulled a gun on someone in Walmart and took them hostage, had she not of had the gun, she may be sleeping in her own bed tonight

    remember, hindsight is 20\20 - I am saying she should have chosen not to carry a gun, it did her no favors in life

    I did not say she should be denied a gun, I said she should have chosen not to carry one

    True, but let us not ascribe the reason to insanity just yet. We don't know. Criminals pull guns on people all the time, it is crazy activity for sure, but it doesn't make 'em less criminal. Let's find out, shouldn't we?

    uh.... how? Unless you're just going to shoot through the hostage then I don't see how having a gun helps much at all. Even if the hostage holder just has a knife at the neck they still seem to have the advantage.

    Now the major thing I think a gun wielder should do is to point out that once the hostage is dead the hostage holder needs to consider just how excruciating some gunshot wounds can honestly be (I will leave which ones as an exercise for the reader)

    "we all have a choice to make when it comes to having guns, I am just saying people that can't control their temper\emotions, should choose to not carry one"

    Because people tend to get very scared and intimidated when they see someone has a gun with them and they don't, and no one wants to risk being shot either.

    But wasn't the argument about why one should always HAVE a gun themselves?

    I think there's pretty substantial evidence that he had at least some leftist political views.

    Was it? Anyway, always having a gun means you generally have the advantage in any situation and people would be stupid to try and mess with you, but the problem is everyone else having a gun means everyone is likely thinking the same thing.

    I carry a gun at all times, nobody knows it; gives me an edge on most attackers, even the armed ones.
    It is better than getting beat to death, killed by a rock or a sharp stick. If I am going into a "battle zone" I carry a bigger gun, (also concealed) with a lot of magazines.

    Everything is always racist all the time. See: Kyle Rittenhouse, who only shot white dudes. He's either the most inept racist of all time, or a self-hating White Devil®. If it's the latter, he'd best be on suicide watch.

    Although, I've been reliably informed that the Holocaust wasn't racist. Maybe the same is true for Rittenhouse.

    Amazing Whoopie still has a job. If a Republican said that, they'd label him a Nazi and he'd be unemployed yesterday;)
