The problem with gun violence is the emphasis on ownership, instead of use.
Felony gun misuse is a problem because our jails are full of candy criminals. Dope offenders that need treatment, not jail.
As I’ve said before, in the case of gun violence, for the first offense, neuter the perp.
I’m not going to suggest that I have the cure for our wacked out justice system, but I do know that armed violence is repugnant. Terrible. Devistating, and worse when it’s a school shooting.
So, let the punishment be repugnant and horrible.
When a firearm is used in the commission of a crime, the covicted felon would best be neutered for the first offense. We don’t want to deny said offender possible rehabilitation, but we don’t want to let that freak breed. Let’s keep that shit out of the gene pool.
The inablers need harsh consequenses as well. “My kid took my gun” ain’t good enough.
Oh, and here in the city, police ought to take these gangbangers and teach ’em to shoot. The rash of unintended victims is appalling. Teach ’em to hit only the person they’re shooting at and there will be a dramatic decrease in shooting injuries and deaths.
De Joy. Slowing the mail to disrupt mail in voting to, supposedly, help Republicans win elections at the expense of all Americans.
A prime example of typical ‘gingrich’ republican dirty play.
Thank you Democrats for not stooping that low. We don’t need that kind of hero.
We’re not at war,this is politics. We’re all Americans.
Will Republicans ever drop the greed and join the fun of building a great nation?
What’s taking so long? He’s a cancer on the post office. He’s got to be removed!
I’ve heard of equal justice for all, and yet once again, White Collar Weisselberg is handled with kid gloves and goes scot-free, for now, with little inconvenience.
Where in the constitution does it state that people with white collars shall be treated with kid gloves rather than as criminals?
Is Donald Trump the leader of these white supremacist that are now being considered a domestic terrorist threat?
He certainly is an instigator. He’s hiding behind the 1st amendment. They follow his orders, so what’s not leadership about that?
Dear President Biden, please get over your pride and pass the infrastructure 2.2 trillion dollar bill.
The retrumplicans and the few Republicans aren’t going to play your game.
So please just get with the program, the one you outlined when you got elected. That’s what we want.
Honestly, we care more about taking advantage of this brief opportunity to to “build back better” a strong democracy of which the people of the United States of America can be proud.
You’re the only one that can bring this country back together and it’s not by playing footsy with the people trying to destroy it.
GET TOUGH, STAND TALL, and LEAD.
Biden needs to get his party in line. He needs to know that we want to spend as much time and resources as it takes to reveal all the criminal activity of the trump administration and prosecute the guilty parties to the fullest extent of the law.
We’re happy to move on only after we’ve cleaned up the last for years.
You can’t build a new administration on a turd pile.
The retrumplicans have turned the Republican party into a crazy mob of lunatics. Their belief in everything Trump says is true is ridiculous. We know it’s all a sham. Most of these people know they’re lying, they just have no moral center.
This is the evolution of the years of the Gingrich playbook. We should have seen it coming with the tea party, and some of us did.
What are these so called legislators doing in office? We continue to see their humiliating conduct ever since the 2020 election.
All those guilty of continuing the big lie, that the election was fraudulent, should at least be relieved of duty until they can be prosecuted for the insurrection of which they took part.
Since when do we compromise with crooks?
The Republican legislature is riddled with liars insurrectionist and crazy conspiracy theorists.
Who are you going to legislate with the Republican party is a sham.
The only bipartisan should possible is with the people not the Republican legislature. It’s about time we give the people what they want.
