    Default 'Why are we willing to live with this carnage?"

    Biden is one hundred percent correct, why? Why is America stuck in the 19th Century when it comes to guns

    "Here is a list of the 27 school shootings that have taken place this year"
    https://thehill.com/changing-america...ace-this-year/

    The Texas massacre of Fourth Graders yesterday marked the 213th mass shooting in the U.S. since the start of 2022. We had 27 school shootings and 213 mass shootings and it is not even June yet

    The answer is obvious, cause a vocal minority in this country have swallowed all the masqueraded propaganda put out by the gun manufactures and we are burdened with gutless politicians whose only interest is in getting reelected

    I dont know why we are willing to live with the carnage. It happens EVERY single weekend in Chicago and every other major city in the USA, every other day of the week too,......and NOBODY SAYS A FUCKING THING.

    Exactly, anyone, the kid pissed at his grandmother or the gangster wannabe can get a gun, easily, thanks for proving my point, and if those Chicago killings weren't noticed you wouldn't known about them to post about them

    So the kid yesterday was a criminal right up until he pulled the trigger? Stephen Paddock was a criminal before he opened fire? Majority of those mass shooters were people who didn't break the law right up to the second they opened fire

    America prides itself on its military and being able to invade any country it wants. This is blowback.

    Gun Regulation in France

    -French people must undergo a psychological test before getting gun licence

    -To own a gun, you first need to acquire a hunting or sporting licence, and this has to be regularly renewed and requires a psychological evaluation.

    -Applicants with any criminal record are automatically refused.

    -There is also a blacklist of around 18,000 people who are banned from owning a gun.

    French gun ownership among highest in the world France is in 12th place in the world in the rankings of gun ownership, according to the Small Arms Survey.

    Hunters own most of the legal weapons in France. Millions of these weapons are owned by hunters, who number around one million and make France the biggest hunting country in Europe.

    Ain't happening in the United States, the gun manufacturers would never allow it, consequently, the gun huggers wouldn't buy it

    Not true- Plenty of people speaking up about the gun violence every day- BUT ALL YOU GUNTARDS HAVE TO SAY IS, "LOOK AT CHICAGO AND LOOK AT BIG CITIES"!

    in other words, distract away from the real problems, and shift people's attention over to blaming Democrats for everything!

    How do you sleep with yourself every night dude?
