Does The NRA Have A Copy Of The Pee Tape?.....

Is that why Trump tweeted he's had a good (great) meeting with the NRA?

Nothing is going to happen with respect to gun reform - is it?

The Repugs Have A Perfect Opportunity To Get Out From Under The NRA's....

hold on their Party. They can work under the cover of Trump. There is power in numbers. If all the Repugs banded together and went with real gun reform - the NRA wouldn't be able to afford to primary all of them.

They should think about this as this could be a crushing blow to the NRA.

With All The Change By Dicks, Wal-Mart & Kroger And Possibly Other....

stores that sell guns and ammo doing the same - and change in the right direction - things will be made more difficult to purchase guns going forward.

That might mean that some of the less visible ways to make these purchases will start seeing more business because - people being as they are - will look for ways around these new initiatives.

So - Congress is going to have to do something about things like - closing the gun show loophole and other loopholes of gun purchase.

So Tomorrow Is Friday.....

What will be the breaking news story(s). Who will resign, get fired or get indicted?

Tune in tomorrow and find out.

I'm kinda thinking it will be a big news day.

When I See David Hogg Now I Think Of A Young John Kerry As He......

joined the Vietnam Veterans Against the War organization in which he served as a nationally recognized spokesman and as an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War. I remember watching him as he appeared in the Fulbright Hearings before the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs where he deemed United States war policy in Vietnam to be the cause of war crimes.

I'll be 70 y/o this year so I probably won't be around to see it - but I see great things for David in politics. I can see him following in the footsteps of a John Kerry to have an outstanding career and future as a spokesperson for this country.

It's Up To The MSM To Keep Alive The Story Of The Surviving Parkland.....

students to help the students keep the pressure on the legislators and the NRA.

The MSM must not let their story die because of losing interest in the news cycle.

I'm sure the students will keep pushing but I worry that the MSM will move on to another - what they think is a - more interesting story.

Regarding Arming Teachers In School - Here Is My Concern.....

how many police shootings have we experienced in the past year where police officers when seeing a gun or a person looking like they are reaching for a gun or a police officer in the heat of the moment - even if they didn't see a weapon - shooting the person and killing them. We've seen this countless times and even innocent people have been killed in the heat of the moment.

Picture a teacher now with a gun in hand protecting his/her students - and law enforcement officers rushing into a classroom - seeing a weapon in the teacher's hand. They don't know that that person is a teacher - and in the heat of the moment - without verifying - just shooting that teacher that had a gun in hand.

That is my fear - if we arm teachers. This is a very plausible outcome.

Watching Stephanie Rhuel This A.M. She Compared (I Believe) AR-15 To Single Shot...

pistols I think. But she did this just by talking through both weapons. Saying the velocity of the bullets and damage done. I'm happy she was able to describe that - but I think what would be more effective is if they actually filmed a demonstration of the weapons.

Maybe fire into a watermelon or a side of beef - to illustrate what each weapon does to its target.
Show the entry point and the exit point. Listen to the sound of the weapon going off, etc.

It's one thing to learn a bit about these weapons - but a picture (in this case a video) is worth a 1000 words.

So my suggestion here is to put a video presentation together - firing different types of weapons to illustrate the noise generated by the weapon and the resulting damage.

We Live In A Country Where 18y/o's Can Buy Automatic Weapons But.....

Gays can't buy a 'wedding cake'. Goi Figure!!!!!

I Was Listening To MSNBC On Sirius XM Radio In The Car.....

some RW woman - don't know who it was - said something to the effect that the NRA spent $500 mil on the 2016 election but the unions spent $1.6 billion. I found that union number hard to believe. Did they spend so much?
