There's been 33 mass shootings in this country since Uvalde.

Raising the minimum age to purchase a semi-automatic rifle is a BABY STEP forward and does NOT work in a country where parents fear for the LIVES of their children.... going to school.

What's the cost of "freedom"? About $50 mil a year in political bribes from the NRA.

60 of 100 Senators... so not going to happen any time soon... not even a tiny national step, because a holy filibuster rule that keeps getting changed anyway, yeah, sure, that's why, it's a high principle, you must understand! Of course really it's a big industry with big profits and bought representatives in high places; buy American!

A move in the right direction, at least, rather than the usual inaction.

This bipartisan gun bill does absolutely nothing that gun control activists were calling for, and instead gives more money to cops. (Couldn't even raise the buying age to 21??)

Many want to spin this as PROGRESS... but with everything that's happened recently... it's really not.

That's what might barely get through 60% of the Senators but they're always saying they'll support something and then back out in a vote when it gets to one. A two party system with one of them pretty much knee-capped in terms of doing a realistic job of compromising, and where a small minority of one or two Senators from either party can wag the whole dog a lot of the time now.

So this Lauren Boebert mouthbreather is now saying Jesus didnít have
enough AR-15s to keep his government from killing him.



Another thing I totally donít get from Christians is their anger that he was
killed. Uh, thatís kinda the whole POINT of the religion. Without his death,
you got nothiní! Heís just another one of those Jews you love to hate.

One has to think that the Son of God would not need guns to
prevent his execution.

That would be like Superman wearing a bulletproof vest.

Dems in Congress need to BLOCK the bill to protect Supreme Court Judges UNTIL legislation is passed to protect children being slaughtered in schools. This is gut level "you want something? I need something." 

That's the deal. There will be no negotiation. End of discussion.
