Is it time to repeal the 2nd Amendment?


New York Times, 2-16-18

Bret Stephens:

" There’s a good case to be made for owning a handgun for self-defense, or a rifle for hunting. There is no remotely sane case for being allowed to purchase, as Paddock did, 33 firearms in the space of a year. But that change can’t happen without a constitutional fix. Anything less does little more than treat the symptoms of the disease.

I know what the objections to this argument will be. What about John Locke and Cesare Beccaria? What about the preservation of American liberties and the encroachments of bureaucratic liberal despotism?

Right. What about another 17 murdered souls, and their classmates and families, and the inability of today’s conservatives to offer anything except false bromides and empty prayers? "

Is President Trump playing politics with the slaughter of innocent American children?

Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!

about my self-deleted post

...I did what I thought was a humorous post on the Trumpy Bear...

...it dawned on me after I submitted the post, that righty would probably not see the humor in my post and would take the opportunity to hit me with a commercial spam 'hide'...you have to be so careful around here these days...

...sorry about wasting your time, but it was funny...

Will the gun-victim generation ever be able to vote Republican again?


What can we do?

What can our legislators do?

It's called gun violence...why don't we start with guns?

At rally, Parkland shooting survivors rail against gun laws, NRA and Trump

" David Hogg, a 17-year-old senior whose message to lawmakers went viral after the shooting, said he wanted the community to channel its pain and frustration into voting out the politicians who support gun laws.

“This fight is not going to be easy. This fight is not going to be short,” he said. “The people and the special interests who want to pass gun laws and make it easier for people to get guns are not going to stop — and we can’t either.” "

Did the Trump administration miss a golden opportunity to prevent the Parkland school shooting?


Vox, 2-16-18

" The FBI had a tip that Nikolas Cruz owned guns, wanted to kill people, and could be a future school shooter more than a month before Cruz killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday.

But the tip wasn’t passed on or properly investigated, the FBI admitted in a statement Friday. "

It looks like the Trump administration might have missed a golden opportunity to prevent the Parkland Florida school shooting.

A very big, sad, FAIL.

In your opinion, did the Trump administration miss a golden opportunity to prevent the Parkland Florida school shooting?

13 Russians Indicted as Mueller Reveals Effort to Aid Trump Campaign

" Russian operatives traveled across the United States to gather intelligence and foment political discord. They worked with an unidentified American who advised them to focus their efforts on what they viewed as “purple” election battleground states, including Colorado, Virginia and Florida, the indictment said.

In August 2016, prosecutors said, Russians posed as Americans and coordinated with Trump campaign staff to organize rallies in Florida. At one rally, an American demonstrator was asked to pose as Mrs. Clinton locked in a cage — unwittingly at the behest of the Russians, prosecutors said. "

I don't trust the Trump administration to secure the ballot. I don't trust the Republican Party to secure the ballot. I don't trust incompetent states to secure the ballot. It's only February and I already don't trust the 2018 election results.

Should President Trump 'do something' about gun violence?


Lori Alhadeff, mother of slain student, Alyssa Alhadeff:

"...I just spent the last two hours putting the burial arrangements for my daughters funeral, who's 14."





*************************

(CNN) — "President Trump, please do something! Do something. Action! We need it now! These kids need safety now!"

With tears rolling down her face, Lori Alhadeff screamed into a microphone, glared into a camera, and begged the President to address the nation's deadly gun epidemic.

Will gun-pushers on Wall Street, in the NRA and Republican Party, again profit from gun violence?


The Atlantic, 10-3-17

" In the hours after a mass shooting in America, there’s recently been a noticeable pattern: Gun companies’ stock prices go up. It happened after San Bernardino. It happened after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. And it happened again on Monday, after the massacre in Las Vegas. The spikes in share prices are now predictable enough that financiers bet on them happening again. "

How much will President Trump receive in 2020 for 'coming through' for the NRA?


New York Times, 2-15-18

President Trump:

" “We must also work together to create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life,” Mr. Trump said, “that creates deep and meaningful human connections, and that turns classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors.”

He made no mention of guns. "
...................

" As a presidential candidate, Mr. Trump enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with the National Rifle Association. The organization provided at least $30 million in support during his campaign. Receiving a hero’s welcome at the group’s annual convention last April, Mr. Trump said he would return the favor.

“Only one candidate in the general election came to speak to you, and that candidate is now the president of the United States, standing before you,” Mr. Trump said at the time. “You came through for me, and I am going to come through for you.” "

Is the Republican Party playing politics with gun control allowing deaths of innocent Americans?


Huffpost, today

" “The idea of gun policy in the Republican party is to try to get a speaking slot at the NRA and prove to that constituency that you are further right than generations past on guns,” Jolly said. "
