    Colorado has a lot of problems with mass shootings. They should study that.

    Probably not, due to some liberal judge letting him off.

    That is pure speculation at the moment then. False accusations happen a lot.

    From what I read, he punched a guy who had been calling him names. Not sure about Colorado, but here in Kentucky he likely wouldn’t even be charged and if he was, it’d likely be 4th degree assault which is just a misdemeanor and not a felony. The incident sounded like nothing more that what happens in schools a hundred times a day. Speculation on my part for sure though.

    The key to not looking like an idiot in these situations is to wait until the facts are actually known...not something the Democrats are good at...after all, why allow facts to muddy the water of their policies...and the DC variety comes off looking like idiots so much no one pays much attention...and it is not like MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC or NBC, the NYT or the Washington Post will push them on it...

    NYT and AP have apparently released that he purchased the weapon (identity still remains in question--AR15 and a handgun or an AR platform handgun) six days ago but either cannot or will not identify the vendor...was a 4473 even filed? Has anyone heard if the sale was commercial or private? Any possibility of another ATF/Fast and Furious oops (might not want that to come out)...

    It seems the family, former teachers and peers all knew he was not stable (talking to himself and imaginary friends, major paranoia, etc) lots of RED flags...was a mental health referral not a realistic possibility (it is more difficult than many would imagine to get an appointment with a REAL psychologist and amazingly difficult to get an appointment with a psychiatrist)? Was this inability to seek help related to the pandemic and hospital shutdowns? Could these statements simply be the opening salvo to an insanity defense?

    Apparently, a media source has revealed that he was an Obama/Syrian refugee with ISIS leanings...does this equate to a terrorism event?

    Somehow it doesn't add up for the demacrat's ,. If cops would've killed him then they could of said anything they wanted but from what is being told it's bout to backfire on them, but they'll continue to tell what they want and there supporters just follow along like nothing is wrong

    I guess I couldn't remember because our President didn't blame the gun but the shooter like it should be!

    We have never been more prepared to fight for our country as we are now!
    If we allow this to happen then shame on us!
  11. One thing I would add is that while the DEM's play on the emotions of the voters, they are NOT stupid. They have a clear and consistent agenda: Disarm the general public. This is a requirement for the further institution of their socialist, progressive agenda of regulating and controlling every facet of our lives. Now, in order to soften up public opinion for these changes to gun laws, they must first have an event or series of events which galvanize public opinion against the free ownership of weapons. Now I am not much on idle conspiracy theory and I have no evidence to support this but every time I see a news report about another mass shooting I wonder... Who is behind this? I ask why? and I think what if...

    What if a ruthless government that believes that the ends justify the means to reach its goal of socialist domination of the USA is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. And assigns a clandestine operator from a black ops private contractor (ala: former Blackwater now Constellis Holdings) to send in a trained assassin into a grocery store, theatre, concert, ballgame (pick one) armed with the classic AR15 style rifle/weapon to kill as many people as possible then appear to be shot by cops or commit suicide or in some cases be captured. Real innocent people die and are wounded and real violent chaos is rained down upon our peaceful society. The operator is carried away often never to be seen or heard from again but the news media goes crazy with the drumbeat of: "We must do something about gun violence!!!!!" The elected leaders chant in unison: "We must ban all assault weapons!!!! Assault weapons are BAD" The sheeple chant: "Baa Baa, we are scared, please save us from the big baad Wolf!!!!" A few more soccer moms are convinced that the world is a bad place and they must save their children by making the world safer by removing bad guns from citizen's hands. They were taught in school that guns are bad anyway. Bad guns today are black and scary looking. They must be evil since they are black and scary. It will be OK to just ban those scary bad guns. After all, Dad's old shotgun will still be OK to use to go bunny hunting. The old brown guns are still good,... Right?

    The machine goes to work, cranking out a bill to ban the "Bad Guns" but there are still citizens out there who studied in history class and understand that the 2nd amendment was not to protect bunny hunters or even to allow homesteaders on the frontier to protect themselves from injuns. It was included in our Constitution to enable all citizens to protect ourselves from an over reaching, overzealous tyrannical government. That the Brown Bess Musket of 1776 was the assault weapon of its time and is no different than the M16 and M4 of today. So, the bill fails due to too many woke citizens aware that gun control does nothing to protect us from criminal acts by evil men. So, the gub-ment stops teaching American history in public schools or at least the version that we knew and soon there will be fewer voters who know the truth and more soccer moms who are scared of bad guns and more sheeple willing to sacrifice liberty for the illusion of safety and to be led down the ramp to the slaughter house later, fat, dumb and happy.

    What if a ruthless gub-ment continues to slowly and progressively move us, inch by inch toward their Socialist Utopia where we all wear flowers in our hair and violence is a thing of the past? Soon we won't need Cops to keep the peace and we can stand in a circle and sing Kum-Bah-Ya. What if many of the mass shootings are staged events meant to "Wag-The-Dog" and win the war of public opinion. Maybe some official in the CIA, FBI, NSA, HLS weighed the cost and said, "We may have to sacrifice a few people in order to achieve our goals. But, the ends justify the means." Real? I hope not. Even if not, the opportunistic Democrat officials are all too willing to take advantage of a evil event to portray it as a crisis and a call to action. Inch by inch we lose a little more of the liberty that our founders fought and bled and died for. The citizens who won WWII understood what this was all about but sadly most of them are gone now. But they are the generation who raised me, taught me in school and mentored me with their example of patriotism and sacrifice. It is the same for many of you. Their effort to tear that down has been ongoing since the 1960's. That is 60 years of progressive socialist programs and propaganda. Do not allow them to take away our country.

    I don't think that is really happening, but the Dam Rats are surely not Too Good to do just that.
    They would do just that scenario if it became necessary to further their Agenda of disarming the public.

    Maybe that person that planted the pipe bombs on January 6 was a military, black ops. Strange how they have pics of them coming and going to plant bombs and disappears like a fart in the wind. Very suspicious.
