Re: Politics

My logic? You hold onto some fantasy where this could have been stopped because of a random anonymous tip and then question my logic? The FBI probably gets thousands of these tips a year. You lament the rights of gun owners and then complain the government didn't round up someone who made a non spec...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I conceptually agree with you. But, I disagree that our freedom necessitates the availability of military grade weapons that have no purpose other than death. They are not accurate enough for hunting and that issue makes them a bad choice for home protection. I'm not a gun person but I get some peop...

Re: Politics

Lama Prior to him pulling the trigger, what law was broken? There is a lot of focus on what law enforcement did not do. I think the focus should be on what they could not do. Until a law was broken, no one could stop him from buying a gun. And, the family that he was living with did not see a kid on...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

You may wish to do a little research on the NRA and the history of the background checks. They proposed instant background checks in the early 90s when Bill Clinton was pushing for 7 day wait periods in his proposed assault rifle ban. They pushed hard for something that the existing technology could...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

NRA slams gun-background system flaws it helped create Like I've been saying: any problems with background checks for gun purchases is a feature and not a bug. I was not aware that it was considered to be unconstitutional to require the states to provide information to the NICS. I think the next st...

Re: Politics

My immediate reaction is "typical". As in, these are the typical kinds of people who become cops in the suburbs. The odds that every cop in the country is brave enough to run into a school with an active shooter except the ones hired in his area are zero. The issue isn't that these 4 cops ...

Re: Politics

That cop who sat outside for 4 minutes while the shooting was going on? Well, turns out he had company. There were three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies hanging outside the school when the rest of the cops showed up. They had their guns drawn and were behind their cars. These are trained pol...

Re: Politics

Let's get real about this, can we? This is a 2016 article from the website Bearing Arms . It's a pro-gun site with links to the NRA webpage. They are not, under any definition, an anti-gun group. Per this link, trained police officers are pretty lousy shots and their probability of shooting anyone b...

Re: Politics

Just to be clear: I'm not saying it's ok this cop hung outside for 4 minutes while students were being shot. It's not ok. My point is only that when you rely on human beings, you sometimes get things like a cop who doesn't run into the building. My other point was I thought saying you hope he kills ...
