Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 14, 2019

In the years since Sandy Hook, 21 state legislatures have expanded background check requirements on various types of gun sales. Seventeen states, mostly those controlled by Democrats, have passed red flag laws that allow law enforcement to take guns away from someone who may pose a danger to themselves or others. And 28 states have enacted laws requiring those convicted of domestic abuse to give up their firearms.

It has been cemented that the NRA owns the GOP through the bribery money provided through Russia.
In other words: nothing changed.

You are right, nothing has changed.

Liberals still refuse to understand that an inanimate object cannot kill someone. It's the person behind the trigger.

Taking my right to own a weapon is not the answer.

Fact still stands..

You will NOT get my right to own a weapon.

Period.

Full stop.

Not a single thing enacted would have stopped the Sandy Hook shooter. What would have, no guns in homes with white males under the age of 21. 95% of school shootings stopped, anything else is ineffective and only makes disarming Americans easier.

Step 2: adjust accordingly. The only way you can ban guns or seriously limit them is changing the Constitution. So get to work changing hearts and minds, if you want it the above.

So far your patronizing lecturing and your persuasions haven't been nearly as effective as the Constitution's plain reading. Step to it, tyrants and misguided humanists.

So you're saying America is awash in irresponsible gun owners.

And you're also saying the Second Amendment gives irresponsible people the right to bear arms.

Democrat cities are the problem. If we could just make all the black democrat run cities go away, maybe send them back to Africa, gun violence wouldn't be so much of a problem for America.

I have. The Second Amendment conditions the right to own firearms on some nexus to a well-regulated militia, and was interpreted that way by our courts for eons until the early 2000s.
