That is alleged to have been found in a country outside the U$A. As such, the NRA/GOP must call it as they see it, a pack of filthy foreign lies.

And sadly, it's not children in school who are the highest percentage of those being shot..

Most people killed by gun violence don't die in mass shootings

In 2020, 45,222 people died from gun-related injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — about 124 people each day.

124 per day.

Does it begin with something like "don't live in America"

Don't live in Amerikkka and don't die in Amerikkka.

Secret: First we'll need to eliminate the GOP's infatuation with the NRA.

You must know that the infatuation is based on money, I assume?

@Robecology Well, the price of a human life is less than $442 for Ted Cruz.

@anglophone And yet he continues to be elected...why?

@Robecology Too much lead in his voters' drinking water.

@anglophone Ted Cruz receives more than $1000 daily for his loyalty to the gun lobby.

Remember when a bunch of armed farmers defeated the most powerful military in the world?

BD66 Level 8 May 25, 2022

Must have missed the part where the red coats were storming the school

@bookofmorons Murder rates have been going down for 30 years. Stop being manipulated by network news.

@BD66 [sandyhookpromise.org]

Being shot is the leading cause of death in children in the USA. Shameful.

Most utterly irrelevant comment ever.

@Druvius Most relevant comment ever.

Having an armed population is why our country was the first one to throw off the British Empire and gain independence.

Having an armed population is why our country has never had a dictator like Hitler or Stalin in power.

Want to see what happens to countries with disarmed populations:

  1. 61,911,000 Murdered: The Soviet Gulag State
  2. 35,236,000 Murdered: The Communist Chinese Ant Hill
  3. 20,946,000 Murdered: The Nazi Genocide State
  4. 10,214,000 Murdered: The Depraved Nationalist Regime
  5. 5,964,000 Murdered: Japan's Savage Military
  6. 2,035,000 Murdered: The Khmer Rouge Hell State
  7. 1,883,000 Murdered: Turkey's Genocidal Purges
  8. 1,670,000 Murdered: The Vietnamese War State
  9. 1,585,000 Murdered: Poland's Ethnic Cleansing

@BD66 When you're in a hole, stop digging. none of this has ANY relevance to the topic. (Also, it's complete BS.)

@Druvius It has everything to do with the topic. An unarmed population is at the mercy of its own government and other foreign governments who choose to invade. Disarming the population might save people from gun deaths by the hundreds or thousands, but it puts the population at risk of suffering deaths by the millions. Our founding fathers were a bunch of bright guys. They knew what they were doing when they wrote the 2nd Amendment.

If that's your position, you must accept the fact that dead children are part of the cost of guns on demand. You cannot have the latter without the former.

@ChestRockfield How many dead children were among the ones killed in these unarmed countries?

61,911,000 Murdered: The Soviet Gulag State
35,236,000 Murdered: The Communist Chinese Ant Hill
20,946,000 Murdered: The Nazi Genocide State
10,214,000 Murdered: The Depraved Nationalist Regime
5,964,000 Murdered: Japan's Savage Military
2,035,000 Murdered: The Khmer Rouge Hell State
1,883,000 Murdered: Turkey's Genocidal Purges
1,670,000 Murdered: The Vietnamese War State
1,585,000 Murdered: Poland's Ethnic Cleansing

@BD66 If that were necessarily true for every country where citizens didn't have unfettered access to all firearms, you may have a point. But it's not necessarily true. So you have to be fine with a massive loss of children's lives because you think both that our government is going to try slaughter its citizenry AND that those citizens will be able to stop them because they have firearms. Regardless, you are okay with children DEFINITELY dying in their classrooms.

@BD66 Seems your list is rather selective. Maybe you should add the estimated 10 million Native americans or the millions of enslaved africans

@bookofmorons Agreed. They were not adequately armed to defend themselves from foreign invaders.

@BD66 Proud boys v US army. A bunch of fat middle aged men with semi automatic rifles against the most powerful force in the world.
You are either totally deluded or being totally ingenious

@Moravian The fat middle aged men won:

@BD66 Great to see the small guy win and hey, no guns involved in either case. How about that. Unlike this one, which didn't turn out to well

A well regulated militia. Today they are called the national guard. This is not the 18th century. Wake up and join the 21st century. An assault weapon will not keep our government at bay. They have tanks and war planes. What's next will you claim thst we have the right to own a tank.

@noworry28 Look up the thread 3 and 4 replies. I have shown you two examples where armed citizens had confrontations with the US Government. The US Government back down, and in the case of Randy Weaver, the US Government had to pay Weaver and his family $3,100,000,000 for the actions it took against his family.
