    There’s a lot of blame to be shared. We don’t have a gun issue, we have a mental health issue.

    It’s. Good smith and wesson is calling out the far extreme woke left

    Military style weapons? The military uses bolt action rifles, pump action shotguns and semiauto handguns. Are those military style weapons okay or are they going to be banned too? If they are ok how is the military style weapon argument a valid argument?

  14. Emmanuel Manzo on May 7, 2023 at 4:47 am

    Well then, lets see your security not have a gun when protecting you.

    18 years old is an adult.
    The CEO was correct in every single word he said.
    Just like how the policies of these babylonians cause inflation, they also cause inflating crime numbers.

  16. Mugzy B on May 7, 2023 at 4:53 am

    Did they ever figure why they waited 70 minutes before entering to protect the students?

  17. Joe Bicycle on May 7, 2023 at 4:55 am

    Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Ford, etc. should blame politicians for motor vehicle deaths *which cause more deaths than gun violence every year.*

  18. Joe Russell on May 7, 2023 at 4:56 am

    You have an incorrect statement at the end of your news broadcast and you should amend it. Per capita, cities with the strictest gun laws do not have the worst crime rates involving guns. This is absolutely 100% not true and you should delete that part of your news coverage.

  20. David Taylor on May 7, 2023 at 5:04 am
