This is the extremism that we are facing in Michigan.





These are the same people that decried the Taliban a few years ago. Yet they want to become the Christian version.

That freedom of speech absolutism will also disappear when they are in power too.

They have shown that several times. Remember Colin Kaepernick? It is fine until you say something that they don't like.

I just read that George P. Bush, last of the Bush dynasty in office, lost against an AG under active investigation by the FBI.

Apparently Fox News, CNN, MSNBC can't cover politics and dead kids

Remember how angry Republicans were about fake furry infiltrations of schools across the country? Vs watching that press conference in Texas where the Governor cant say he wont go to an NRA Conference and that maybe there were too many doors.

In the end, all they have to offer is empty platitudes, no solutions, no actions. This is the GOP response to mass shootings.

However, wouldn't it be possible for Biden to declare the occurrence of these shootings a national emergency, and take some action? Like Trump did when he declared a national emergency on the border (when there was none there) to get access to the instruments of emergency power.

I feel like the focus is being put on the wrong aspect.

Because yes, feel free to go on with a reduction of the honestly insane diffusion of firearms in the USA it will certainly do good; but that will not solve the main problem, which is the fact that so many teenagers or very young adults are suffering, hurting so much that they think destroying themselves along with some other random people is preferable to what their normal lives are.

What lack of meaning pushes them up to that point? That is the real problem to solve. Taking away guns is like putting a lower speed limit on a road full of grenade holes. Yes, it will have some effects, but the holes will remain.

Firearms are now the number one cause of death for children 0-19 in the United States.

Not everyone is being shot in mass shooting events by teens. The connection is access to guns.

Unconstitutional. Muted when you're out of office and the wall didn't work.

Americans electing more Democrats is the answer
