    You are going hard on this propaganda.

    I am all for removing The drug Ritalin from the school system. How about conducting an investigation on how many kids are drugged by their parents and committees heinous act.

    Horror that is the GOP

    You don’t know what a real slap to the face is. All you people do is create a society of victimhood.

    The Bleakly amusing part of all this, is the NRA has almost zero impact on the gunrights/gun debate anymore. They are almost completely toothless in the political arena. Other gun rights organizations are the ones that are winning the fights in the courts and lobbying Congress. The NRA is half bankrupt and corrupt. Yet the Democrats and media continue to use them as a mythic bogy man.

    Root cause analysis!
    The guns ARE the problem!!!



  10. German Shepherd on August 25, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    That is funny that guns will be banned for at least a portion of the NRA conference



  11. SaveGoodLivesSlayAllEvilForTruth&Humanity on August 25, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    i dont think its a coincidence that a mass shooting happened days before an NRA convention (which is scheduled long ahead of time)

    Republicans cannot do a single thing about gun violence but they’ll trample all over a woman’s rights to protect a six week fetus.



  13. Glory B on August 25, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    No slap in our faces. The crazy killed the kids. No NWO. Americans are not slaves. Fake News! Speak for your country.



  14. Rusty Cracker on August 25, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    What does the NRA have to do with the school shooting?



  15. John 1:1 on August 25, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Fake news 🐕



  16. Janie K Carney on August 25, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    I’m sure no one else got drunk during the two year lockdown!!



  17. JogBird on August 25, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    In times like these, it is more important than ever to stand up for our Constitutional Rights



  18. Liberty Construction on August 25, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    God bless you President Trump!!!



  19. Janie K Carney on August 25, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    The school officers have to carry the same weapons that the shooter has. And protective vests.



  20. tcam on August 25, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    NRA conference this weekend has gun control. No guns there…what?! Ted Cruz and Donald Trump should welcome all their people and their guns, shouldn’t they? Hmmm
