The More Things Change . . . .



It's "lets talk about gun laws" today after what happened in Parkland, Florida, and it reminded me of this Time magazine photo spread which came out in 1998. (You can see all the photos here.)

I love the guy in the mullet especially because he had on a "Young Country" t-shirt. That was the name of the leading Dallas country and western station at the time.

That pic is so stupid and misleading. Time sought to paint a caricature of all gun owners by running that. It backfired on them spectacularly because of the hundreds of millions of us out here that do not resemble that. Hence, we dug in!!!

Barry you bleeding heart liberal! What is your point. You are and always have been asinine.

It's only "lets talk about gun laws" today to left wingnuts. If anyone had the least amount of compassion and care to the families they would at least wait until the bodies cooled off before politicizing this. It's not the people you care about. It's your agenda. Be sure and don't waste a good crisis. You people make me want to puke.

Last September, FBI was sent a screenshot of a comment by nikolas cruz:

"I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”

Unfortunately, the FBI was busy running down Clinton campaign leads about a nonexistent Russian conspiracy with Trump.

There's a reason why townies in the Old Testament would take the crazy folks out into the desert and tell 'em not to come back to town.

so if someone runs over another person with a car do we band the car?

Trying to ID the pistol. It looks heavy and bulky. Guns are better now.

2:16 pm , ok fair enough, lets not talk about the Florida shooting just yet, too soon, I get it. Would you mind discussing Las Vegas or maybe Sandy Hook? Still too soon? Ok how about Columbine that's been 19 years ago, so how bout that?

2:16 will be the next loon to do a mass shooting. He'll probably target a Democratic poling place like the good little Nazi he is.

3:37 O.K., i'll bite; what sort of reforms are you looking for? There are so many things that kill more people each year than guns, and yet none of those things are instruments of destruction that our government trains soldiers to use. Tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists said for several years the Obama would declare Marshall Law and hold over as President and it didn't happen. It looks like Trump is looney enough to try the same thing. In either event, i'd like to be armed if the military is going to support a President who want to ignore/skip the whole voting thing. So what's your solution?

And what in my comment leads you to the conclusion that I would do that? I'm simply tired of the politicization by loons like you who want to turn us into a communist country. How's that, Pinko?

Was that the same year that Time had a cover story about how we all lie, so Bill Clinton really didn’t do anything wrong?

That includes Trump too 631. Nothing wrong. Trump and Bill are two peas in a pod.

There was a guy named Marshall who had a Plan. But the guy who had the law was martial (small m). He wasn't even a guy, funny enough.

Interesting factoid.

And as for my solution? You sound deranged, but a better bet would be alcohol? So can we just start with an interlock device on your keyboard? You'll thank me for this in the future.

Maybe the solution to all of our nations problems is to rescind the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens. That is what some of you are advocating. This is much easier than addressing the core issues of why these events occur,
