    Any thought why we are allowing the narrative to be “crazy people”get their hands on guns and kill others? Seems like “pro choice” titling all over again.

    Should ideally be kept a gun issue and control that, rather than mental health.

    And what's that going to do when it comes to the knife and bomb sprees? UK's already demanding knives be dulled, not like a wonderful bar couldn't get around that... and then you have to be a certain age to buy a pressure cooker, never mind you can build a bomb from stuff you can buy in the gift shop in the secure section of an airport...

    Oh, the most recent killer? Actually admitted to the cops he was on the drugs that all non-Islamic mass killers are on, and had psychiatric issues where the pill pusher doctor just gave him them and said he was fine.

    What's so moronic about this narrative is that it's an impossible solution. And they pretend that they can actually achieve it, without even suggesting methods of implementing it in either an effective or lawful way.

    Given who started the thread with the title, moronic is an appropriate way to describe it.

    If course, the narrative also ignores that reasonable restrictions can be put in place on the 2nd, similar to restrictions to all of the rest of the amendments, but since they are just representing the gun industry, and very much not the Constitution, that will never happen. Kinda sad, but given how the gun side wants to take other rights away, I can't see any reason to defend their rights at all.

    @APSouthRegion: A Tennessee man accused of killing his former boss with a hatchet had tried to buy a gun but failed the background check. http://apne.ws/ttKDJW3

    Hey Flaggy, you nervous that you might get tied into Mueller's investigation?

    The Russians are accused of producing propaganda, posing as U.S. activists and posting political content on social media as so-called trolls to encourage strife in the U.S. The evidence includes between 1.5 and 2 terabytes of data and involves U.S. residents not charged with crimes who the government says were unwittingly recruited by Russians to engage in political activity, prosecutors wrote.

    They were inundated by gun trafficking from a region with amazingly weak gun laws?

    A 2013 study by the University of San Diego and the Igarape Institute in Brazil estimated that, on average, 212,887 firearms were bought in the US every year between 2010 and 2012, by purchasers who intended to traffic them. This represents some 580 weapons a day.

    Now an estimated 2,000 weapons illegally enter Mexico from the United States every day.

    The US will stop the gun trafficking once Mexico stops the drug trafficking.

    The problem is we pussed out in 1848. Should have annexed all of Mexico.
