So where do the Stars and Stripes come into play?

Always double check the work of a DoSomethinger. They rarely know what they're talking about.

Ah you’re right! Sorry, you’d only be eliminating the 2A for about 20% of the active military. Much less nefarious!

We've been over this Pilates. Not selling beer to high schoolers isn't prohibition.

Age-based restrictions on rights are longstanding and well precedented. Even in firearms.

Suffice it to say if you think my approval of anything related to firearms regulation has anything to do with what the NRA thinks, you haven't read me very well.

Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee

Quote:
In early 2016, I began paying attention to reports about the incredible number of unarmed black people being killed by the police. The posts on social media deeply disturbed me, but one in particular brought me to tears: the killing of Alton Sterling in my hometown Baton Rouge, La. This could have happened to any of my family members who still live in the area. I felt furious, hurt and hopeless. I wanted to do something, but didn’t know what or how to do it. All I knew for sure is that I wanted it to be as respectful as possible.
Where was Steps to tell these guys that accountability for those police actions started and ended within the 4 walls of that local police station? How did he stand by while all these people made the leap from that premise to one where America in toto was responsible?

I said nothing about where accountability ends you clown. I said it begins with cops and police departments.

In point of fact, I just noted the criminal actions of your dictator, actions calculated to magnify the misery of black communities.

You'll do anything to avoid a discussion about the actions of cops won't you?

Oh we see, Steps. Accountability begins with the cops. Leaps clean over any potential Democratic local pols in charge of discipline, hiring, and firing of those said cops, and lands on the nearest available state or national level Republican and/or all Republican flag-waiving types in aggregate.

Nobody can explain it. Just an unexplained mystery of The Faith.

Yes, I'm sure those responsible for "discipline, hiring, and firing cops"...in other words, OTHER COPS are obviously DEMS, as we all know police departments are chock-full of liberal activists fighting for the rights of black people.

Find someone else to bore. Your arguments are juvenile and lazy.

Sorry, Steps, you don't get off that easy. If a city's government has a ****ty, racist police department, it's incumbent upon that city's government to root it out and fix it.

Blaming America while giving that closest, most responsible layer a pass really tells us all we need to know about what you're trying to do here.

For clarity: are you saying you’re not an NRA member? GOA perhaps?
