How to prevent murders and shootings? 1) arm up the citizenry: an armed society is a polite society, and thugs don’t want to attack armed folks: 2) arrest and jail criminals. Not release them. Not no-bail policies. Not failure to prosecute. Not emptying prisons for the flu.


Good ideas but never going to fly here in deep blue Washington state. But thanks for playing.

Why? A lot of Washington is Red. I lived in the Colville area and it was very red.

Bring back the State Militias so we can all be armed up with M4 rifles.


You left out 3) arrest and convict rogue prosecutors who let dirtballs go and oppress everyone else.

No public input but yet the NRA will be there to decide on what rights people will give up without a fight.


What is needed is someone with a little common sense intelligence and energy to lay bare the fallacies of “gun control.” Gun crime: Make the legislature aware of who did it, and there be no hiding ethnicity, race, and affiliations. Detail why the shooting or gun crime was done – gang, robbery, domestic dispute, etc. And, of course, where did the gun come from – straw purchase, stolen, imported by gangs. Taxing and/or punishing law abiding gun owners: these people are not the criminal committing crime so why are they being taxed! Get the answer straight from the legislator’s mouth.… Read more »


A do nothing senate taking on a non-existent issue, what so noteworthy about this?

There is no such thing as “gun violence”, just as there is no such thing as “chair violence” or “rock violence”, even if somebody hits you with a chair or throws rocks at you. Those would be cases of PEOPLE committing violent assault, and there are causes like poverty and gang violence and such that can be addressed to discover how it is that PEOPLE are driven to become violent offenders, but there is simply no such thing as inanimate object violence. To insist otherwise is to push a silly fantasy rather than to look at actual real world causes.… Read more »


Gun Violence, is created by violent criminals, not Law abiding Constitutional Citizens… When Will These Lefty/Communists understand this?


Any time the gov’t gets together to ‘discuss’ gun stuff, it’s time to be worried.

We’d all be a lot better off if the gov’t would just STFU and leave the Constitution to work as designed.

Actually preventing gun violence is easy. Lock your guns in a safe or somewhere that they can’t escape from and go out and shoot innocent bystanders. I tried a test once and left my shotgun out of the safe for about 5 years and either it’s a very friendly shotgun or else it might be handicapped because not once did it go out and commit violence. Someone needs to get their heads out of their behinds. It isn’t “gun violence” it is PEOPLE VIOLENCE. And some use guns to commit their violence. More use hammers and feet or a bat.… Read more »
