    GOP madness Unbound...

    He did, but he had an AR-15 type weapon with him. The problem is the easy access to weapons.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    When founded the NRA had the purpose of promoting hunting. Hence, the RIFLE in the name. It has only been in the last few decades that it has abandoned that concept and replaced it with promoting ZERO regulation of firearms of all kinds, or as close to it as it can get. The bulk of its money comes from the gun manufacturers and dealers, not "hunters." As for the good old days, I grew up then too. I had friends who hunted. Heck I even had a gun and hunted some. Our father's had to purchase the guns. NOBODY had automatic or semi-automatic weapons of mass destruction. That is what they have now. So let's don't drag the good ol' days into this because they are totally irrelevant. Not saying that there are not mental, behavior and family life issues that contribute. But end of the day, it is the easy access to weapons of mass destruction capability. IMO, any weapon that lets you kill more than one or two people in a single event is a weapon of mass destruction.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    How is that possible? Considering how many millions of people play these violent games, there should be mass shootings at every school in America every day. The ease with which they obtain the weapons and the ammunition and the types of weapons is directly responsible for how many people get shot.
  4. Not quite. A vigilante would have tried to enforce a law. This guy just wanted to show up, wave the US Flag, show he is for Trump and display his state approved firearm. Oh, and maybe shoot somebody if he gets a chance. But that is not enforcing a law.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    You don't understand. The NRA, the gun manufacturers, the GOP and their supporters have provided the means with which the individual can KILL in massive numbers or from a distance. The means is the gun.
  6. Wonder how he would have felt if some law enforcement officer shot him for being armed near the shootings?

    Primarily because the NRA, the gun industry and the Republicans and their supporters have made it OK to use weapons and violence to express yourself. They have also enabled them to obtain weapons of "mass" destruction very, very easily.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Great opinion piece. Very accurate. If you watch the latest political campaigns and ads by the GOPers, some are blatant, such as the ones cited here, but many others barely restrain themselves. Trump has permitted the majority of GOPers to reveal who they really are and what they have always believed.

    Also stars Phyllis Kirk who played Nora Charles in The Thin Man TV series with Peter Lawford. Probably one of few actresses buried in Arlington National Cemetery with her husband, Warren Bush.

    Why doesn't Trump just refuse his salary or take a dollar a year? Didn't Kennedy do that?

    2018 Elections

    We don't register in S.C. and the primaries are open. Anybody can vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary. Voting is in same voting places and "managed" by state and county election commissions. When you sign in you ask for a Dem or GOP "ballot." Poll worker inserts it into the voting machine and appropriate party ballot comes up on screen. Always vote in GOP primary because there is zero chance of a Dem winning at county, state or federal level in my area. So I want to try to get the best candidate possible nominated. Not very successful, but I keep trying. Been getting mailings and requests for money for years. What got me was that it was a request for a Utah representative.

    Who was Kyle Kersten by the way???

    Been wondering the same thing. What gets me is that every time I go to login, if I do not place the pointer precisely in the box, I get the little "billboard" Remembering Kyle Kersten. No offense, but shouldn't this automatic notification be removed? It isn't done for anybody else, not even Robert Osborne.

    2018 Elections

    Received a mail packet today from "Trey Gowdy" with information and request that I send money to him at a PO Box in Washington DC to support Rep Mia Love (R), Utah. Already has my name and address on the return address of the envelope. Trey Gowdy is retiring from the House and is not my representative. My representative has no opponent in primary and will get between 65% and 75% of vote in Nov. He also has a large campaign war chest. Naturally there are remarks about how the liberal Dems, Nancy Pelosi, etc. are going to ruin the country. I searched the internet. Love is a two term "conservative" Republican from Utah. Her parents emigrated from Haiti and she was born in NY. Due to her birth in US, parents were able to become US citizens and bring their other two children over from Haiti. Chain migration? Since I never send money to GOP, I was surprised that they would ask me to support a candidate in Utah. I'm sure it has nothing to do with her being a black woman. Does make one wonder about what tactics the GOP will use this year to keep their control of governments.
