Havenít read all of the discussion, sorry no time. But hereís one very important point. There are LOTS of restrictive gun laws and regulations on the books in the US. What the NRA and their bought and paid for politicians have taken to doing is getting loopholes passed that basically nullify most of those regulations.
Hereís a GREAT video example. https://nowthisnews....heck-in-america

Before you question whether this is true or not, let me tell you a fact: last year for what amounts to a job purpose I looked into purchasing a gun in the US, PA to be specific. I am a non citizen with no background check. I did not buy one, but it was on the table and I could have walked out with it. That, to me, is insane.

Best quote coming out of parkland? ĎThey should change the name of the AR-15 to ĎMarco Rubioí because itís so easy to buy.

Under 30, everyone is a liberal.
Over 30, everyone is a conservative.

People change.

Yeah, I think this is mostly a generational thing. As in, it was true for a specific generation or two, but going forward I think how and where you grew up is going to be a lot more predictive than age.

Iím also over 30 and pretty liberal.

I also bristle at anyone calling themselves a conservative these days, just because even for the many people who have reasonably voted conservative in the past, itís hard to find any delineation between being conservative and aligning with the American Republican Party these days, and thatís a party that was steeply anti-democratic even before Trump and Iíve run out of adjectives to describe them once the Trump era

I missed that comment by Arp and I would disagree. Almost all my friends and myself to a certain extent all were Republicans in our first forays into being able to vote but all turned into Democrats as we got older. Overall I think the statement is wrong no matter how you arrange it. It's probably more where you live and how your parents voted.

today's Republican party is a reactionary revolutionary party that has nothing in common with the party of Eisenhower. It's the Democrats who are the party of traditional main stream American values today.

Feel like this is fair. I agree with Arp that people generally get more conservative as they get older. But thereís such a huge gap between the reasonable conservative positions of 20 years ago and what passes for a Republican (and to a much lesser extent, Canadaís PC party) today. The same extremes who wanted an extreme thing but didnít want to think to hard about all the reasons it would not work or make sense were idealist liberals before and alt-righters now

There's whole meme that when you are young and idealistic you are liberal and when you are old and wise you are conservative.

But I think it's also b/c people are looking at their own best interest ... young people rely on government for education, etc when setting out and middle aged people are comfortable and need less assistance. Meanwhile the elderly are raking in tons of government help in the form of medical treatment but still think the government is out to rob them blind. [just as generic stereotypes]

I have not made a political post for this reason. Why must you mention my name for no reason? I appreciate you stop from referring and using my name and just basically be a troll.

WASHINGTON -- The president's divorce lawyer says the president's personal lawyer, whose home was raided by the FBI, might rat out the president to the special counsel who has charged four members of the president's campaign, because he is afraid of being raped by black men.

Thanks a lot, Bob! I was waiting for the movie.
