As a result, law enforcement must have military defensive capabilities like armored vehicles to combat it. Also, this weaponry has rendered the average citizenís right to self defense OBSOLETE as we witnessed in Sandy Hook, Orlando, Las Vegas and Texas.

The pharmaceutical industry is pumping out opoiods far in excess of any ethical need because their is an incredible amount of money to be had doing so. As a result, 200,000 Americans are dying every year. That represents 70 times the deaths realized on 9-11. I could go on stating further examples of capitalism spiraling out of control in other major areas.

CONCLUSION: An out of control capitalistic system where the monied interests control policy is rotting this country from the inside and will lead to our society imploding in on itself. The Muslim vs. Atheism nonsense is merely the distraction of assholes. The End.

What then do you propose comrade? This hatred is nothing more than coveting on steroids, and the left pushes coveting with their socialist views of you deserve everything the other guy has, whether you worked for it or not. In fact here let the government force them to give it to you!

"You can't legislate hatred out of people" S #57
Government only controls emotion at dystopian extremes.

In our democratic republic, we legislate rules of conduct.
Hate whomever you wish.
But common sense requires you to accord them the same degree of courtesy they have a right to expect from you, and you from them.

"Your understanding" of something is irrelevant. Do you have any credible evidence that is a fact?

He was also a white male, how about not allowing white males to own firearms.
No LESS stupid than your comment.

Langendorff said he first spotted the shooter shortly after 11:20 a.m. when he drove by the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on his way to his girlfriendís house. The bystander witnessed two men exchanging gunfire outside the house of worship. One was 26-year-old shooter Devin Kelley, and the other was an unidentified Good Samaritan who was trying to take him down, Langendorff said.

The schisms that exist are all imposed on us through the political process. "Deplorables", "Mexican's are rapists", "Trumps a Nazi", "Pelosi is a Socialist". It's all just a game to them.

You know I capitalized the word EXACTLY for a reason.
You're "answer" was complete gibberish.
WE are somehow REQUIRED, we are FORCED, to take to heart and believe every piece of bullshit we come across in the media?
We have no free will, no common sense, no capacity for reason or logic anymore, no capacity for independent thought or action.

Your comment is that of the hopeless, hapless, powerless victim.
