    Jon Stewart owns that clown. Jon Stewart took him out to the woodshed and beat him senseless.

    You try to put the bull5h!t past Jon Stewart and he simply grabs it and forces it right down your throat. That was a superb takedown. I don't think he could have done any better if it was scripted like that.

    MAGA, GQP, republicans, whatever you wanna call them, they WANT this, people. They want mass shootings. They want people to go into a school and kill a dozen kids. They WANT THIS. If they didn't they too would be calling for the same reasonable things 99% of democrats are willing to do. They are evil. They are a cancer on civilization.

    According to this specimen, the AR-15 should be the national gun of America.

    I get the feeling Republicans would designate an AR-15 as the Great Seal. And put assault rifles on our money instead of dead presidents.

    and having worked with DV/SA survivors, can confirm that law enforcement is useless when it comes to enforcing orders where the abuser is no longer allowed to have a gun.
    Didn't SCOTUS just specifically rule the right to murder your family is more fundamental than the privilege of not bring murdered by your abusive husband, and there's nothing anybody can do about it, because it's right there in the Bible?

    I don't mock people who actually do something, even if it's just the tiniest thing. What I mock are politicians who pass laws that aren't going to have any meaningful impact, and then stand around clapping themselves on the back like they did something to solve the problem.

    You watch. The D's control the governor's office and the legislature here in Minnesota this session. They're going for a pretty liberal agenda. What are they going to do for guns? It'll be something like stronger "red flag" laws and background checks.

    I guaranty you that at some point during or after this session, the D leadership will hold a press conference at which point in time they will congratulate themselves on taking real and meaningful steps to eliminate the gun crisis here in Minnesota.

    Will that be a claim with which you agree?

    If they want to do something, I have an idea. Pass a law that makes it a felony, with mandatory prison time, for carrying a gun in a car where the gun is not secured with both a trigger lock and contained within a locked case.

    Make it a felony if you own a gun and you don't keep it locked in a secure fashion and a minor comes into possession of it and commits a crime. Or, if you really want to have fun, how about this. Pass a law that says that if you are carrying a gun, it is automatically considered self defense if someone else shoots you.

    I’d be fine with 95% of privately owned guns vanishing in plain sight by noon today. Anything, including the two bills moving through the extremely tight Democratic majorities in the Minnesota House/Senate, are a step in that direction. The quintessential infinitesimal act, voting, put just enough Democratic politicians in place to hopefully make it happen. I personally don’t give a f-ck if politicians dance for the cameras afterwards. That’s the role for some of them. Would you find the governmental route less appalling and abhorrent if both political parties didn’t openly gyrate on television after passing a potentially infinitesimal impact law?
    I still don’t own a gun. I’m doing my part. My neighbors don’t give a f-ck what I say about guns, and frankly, it’s none of my f-cking business what they be up to, as long as they leave my family alone. But the kids I take care of at work have learned about gun violence and gun safety from me during scheduled groups. Some of them already have gun-related charges. If I could get even one of those kids’ peers listening to make better decisions with firearms, I’m doing my infinitesimal part. If I stop one kid from going home and committing suicide with a firearm because my care played a role on his/her/their road to recovery, I’ve done my infinitesimal part.
    Your “swing for the fences or you’ve done nothing” application to only government but not individual people is strange. I think I’d end up in a hospital contorting myself like that.
