So then they’re driving illegally which in itself is a crime, how do they get around? They all have bikes? They all take the bus? In every major metropolitan city?

You’re assuming they drive, which was never claimed. Basically, you’re arguing with yourself.

If they didn’t, Democrats wouldn’t be opposed to IDs.

The good old false duality logic failure. You never fail to deliver, Bass.

Ok, he sent warships and then what? As if that’s going to intimidate the Russians.

What would you have Biden do? You seem to be advocating for a military strike. How do you reconcile that with you constantly pillorying Biden as a warmonger?

Yeah, Mueller and his 19 Democrat lawyers that had 500 subpoenas and 500 witnesses proved the opposite.

Incorrect. Mueller and his team proved their was no coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia; they never investigate Trump’s unhealthy pandering to, appeasement of, and capitulation to Putin. Please stop intentionally spreading misinformation.

Whoa, slow down and let’s wait first before giving Biden a prize.

But let’s continue to baselessly attack Biden as a warmonger in the meantime.

If he does this, that would be great and I would applaud him for that and pretty much most conservatives,

Sure you will.

but September is a long way off as well as 4 years, a lot can happen, but if he can pull this off, he’s got my respect.

If Trump had brought our trips home like he promised to do, Biden wouldn’t have to be cleaning up this mess.

I’m sure our rightwingers will continue to baselessly label Biden a warmonger and ask why Biden isn’t doing this more quickly.

Trump could have done this during his four years, but lacked the willpower. As commander-in-chief, Trump would have simply had to order the withdrawal and nobody could have stopped it.

That was the kid with the gun. And who did they call to take care of the problem? People with guns.

People properly trained in the use of firearms.

If the teachers had been armed they could have been able to talk the shooter down, or defend themselves and the other kids if they had to.

Speculation at best.

*It’s likely to make things worse if armed civilians intervene when shootings erupt in public places, says John Donohue, a Stanford Law School professor whose research has focused on gun violence and policy. “Unless you’re very well trained, you usually add more to the body count than you subtract,” Donohue says.*

https://www.google.com/amp/s/time.com/5644578/good-guys-with-guns-el-paso-dayton/%3famp=true

Properly handling a firearm is a degradable skill like speaking a second language: if you don’t constantly practice/use it, you lose it. I prefer teachers to hone their teaching skills instead of needing to acquire and maintain skills to properly handle firearms.

The NRA isn’t spending its time and money making sure that big city Democrats can shoot each other.

Kind of correct. The NRA is spending its time and money to ensure the free flow of firearms continues, compiling the most comprehensive list of private firearm ownership in the US, and on its executives’ wardrobes and fine dining.

I’m surprised you support the NRA given its fiscal irresponsibility as demonstrated by its bankruptcy.

In fact, for years and years I've been listening to the GOP say it's a mental health issue, yet I've yet to meet a conservative point to Republican sponsored legislation for mental health. Is it a real solution in their minds, or just a talking point to repeat for a few days until the most current shooting is out of the headlines?

Just a hollow talking point that allows them to feel good about themselves whilst cowering on the corner, hugging their firearms.

We know that gun bans work, 

No, they don’t, Chicago is a prime example.

Chicago is not an island and isn’t surrounded by a wall, so firearms flow in from gun nutter states like Indiana. A better example of how firearm control laws work extremely well is Hawaii.

Hawaii has strict firearms control laws and lower rates of firearm violence while other crime rates are relatively comparable to the mainland.

It is true.

No, it isn’t. Please refrain from spreading misinformation.

I have a question, besides trying to punish all of us law abiding citizens, why is this for the left an only one-sided approach?

First, the left isn’t trying to punish anyone. Second, it isn’t a a one-sided approach.

What motivates a person to want to pick up a gun or shoot people, let’s say there is no gun, we don’t have guns at all, someone will find other ways to kill people, so there is something deeper going on than guns ans the left doesn’t want to factor in other possible contributing factors as to what else could be the cause for someone to do this.

Incorrect.

We need not only to enforce the gun laws that are already in place, we also need to mentally screen a root out potential violent people from purchasing or getting their hands on firearms if they are determined to be mentally unstable, now you would be approaching this problem from various angles and might find a better solution, but the over-reactionary hyper-partisan war on guns won’t solve anything or better the nation and the safety of it if the left focuses on just the guns only.

There is no war on guns. It is funny that you accuse anyone of being hyperpartisan.

AKA: silencing right opposition or free speech altogether if it doesn’t adhere to liberal group think.

Nope, as in reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions. You playing the victim card is becoming trite.

Why not? Besides registering the serial number of the firearm, you don't really need anything else, except maybe a certification that you passed all mental evaluation tests.

You really don’t understand why your birthday shouldn’t be the only qualification for purchasing a firearm? Yikes.

Proof of training regarding how to properly handle firearms should be a requirement for purchasing firearms. Especially for people who think a weapons capacity (number of rounds the weapon is capable of holding) and firing mechanism (bolt action, semi-auto) don’t affect its lethality.

As i keep saying the USA is out of control. Fuuny that press loves to talk about Japanese school rules while at the same time the chools in the west are war zones.

Is the US out of control or is it the West?

The Western media doesn’t care about Japanese school rules.

When will America culture turn away from the sick Leftism that is destroying families and the Cultural Marxism that is dividing people on every fault line possible? 

What are they talking about? The tale varies in the telling, but the theory of cultural Marxism is integral to the fantasy life of the contemporary right. It depends on a crazy-mirror history, which glancingly reflects things that really happened, only to distort them in the most bizarre ways.

It likely was Israel. Ironic that one of the world’s leading state sponsors of terrorism (Israel) has attacked another of the world’s leading state sponsors of terrorism.

Tragic.

Further evidence that the US has a severe firearms issue and needs stricter firearms control laws.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Liberal and crushing the second amendment. The only problem with this analysis is it simply isn’t true.

Just like speech can be regulated, so can firearms. Your birthday shouldn’t be the only qualification allowing you to purchase firearms.

P. Smith; no problem. We may not always see eye to eye, but it is important to get all the relevant facts before rushing to judgement. It may turn out that this shooting was entirely wrong and the officers punished. At this point, it is too soon to tell. 

Agreed.

What IS a problem is the sudden rush to violence on the part of "protesters". This behavior has been tacitly accepted for far too long.

Disagreed. I don’t think violent behavior has been accepted in any way by anyone but extremists. This goes for violent behavior on both sides of the political divide.
