How clever!

Get gun owners to run around shooting people, to advance the agenda of the gun grabbers.

Gun grabbers are the dumbest people alive.

US v. Miller
May 15, 1939
MR. JUSTICE McREYNOLDS opinion
"The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. "A body of citizens enrolled for military discipline." And further, that ordinarily, when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time."
The word "ordinarily" infers "not always".

Housing Segregation
The practice of informally segregating and discriminating based on race has always existed. However, in 1934 the practice of redlining neighborhoods came into existence through the National Housing Act of 1934.

When, in history, have Conservatives ever been right about anything?

The very aim of Conservatives is to block change!

Conservatives opposed the American Revolution. They opposed the US Constitution. They supported slavery. They opposed women's suffrage. They opposed unions. They opposed child labor laws. They opposed workplace safety laws. They opposed Social Security. They opposed World War II. They opposed integration. They opposed civil rights. They opposed inter-racial marriage. They opposed Medicare. They opposed federal expenditures on education. They opposed voting rights. Now, they oppose gay rights and animal rights. They have delayed, but not prevented, social progress.

My favorite one, hands down, when conservatives tried to install General Washington as the “King of the New World”

Democrats have not always been liberals, nor have Republicans always been conservatives. The Republican Party was born as the liberal opposition to conservative Democrats. We Democrats have only been the liberal party since Woodrow Wilson, and Democrats in our Southern states were the conservatives there until Jimmy Carter was elected. The Democratic Party grew out of Thomas Jefferson's Democratic Republicans. With the election of Andrew Jackson, the Democrats became the conservative alternative to the liberal Whigs. Democrats supported slavery and were opposed by the liberal Republican Party, an outgrowth of the old Whig Party. The last liberal Republican president was Teddy Roosevelt. When William Howard Taft proved to be a conservative, Roosevelt ran against him as a Progressive, assuring the election of Woodrow Wilson.

Our country's history is one of an ongoing struggle between liberals and conservatives: those fighting for more rights and freedoms and those fighting to restrict them. Liberals have always sought more freedoms and Conservatives have always opposed changing the status quo.

They are not so stupid as to suggest these mass murders by gun owners is a conspiracy by people wanting to make gun owners look bad.

The word "ordinary" means "common".

No inference there.

As in;

"- bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time."

The firearm most commonly used at this time is the AK47.

It is ridiculously obvious to anyone who isn't a dumb gun grabber that the media is making instant celebrities of mentally unstable people who commit copycat mass murders.

Thus encouraging other mentally unstable people to become instant celebrities by committing more copycat mass murders.

All to further their political agenda.

Tell us more about this conspiracy to make gun owners look bad by using gun owners to commit gun crimes.

It seems to be working...

On this latest shooting,

Gun Free Zones are public shooting galleries that attract copycat mass murderers.

Copycat mass murderers know that if they manage to kill someone they will instantly become media celebrities.

On the other hand one of these latest shootings involved a place where the intended victims were armed (not a Gun Free Zone) and the would be media celebrity was dead before he could kill anyone.

Those who enable Gun Free Zones encourage copycat mass murder and they should face lawsuits for wrongful death.

Actually the post is a crock of leftist crap with no basis in reality. Opposing the leftist liberal degradation of our free society by attempting to grant omnipotence to Big Brother Government is not the same as preserving the "status quo". Nice try but that dog don't hunt. Try again.......

You can tell who the real vets are.

You might see a tattoo or an odd scar, and if you ask if they were military they say-

"Yeah"

Posers who sat in the rear with the gear are easy to spot too.

They run around screeching "I'm a vet! everybody look!!" and "You aren't a vet I'm better than you!!".

The ones who were really in the dooky know a loudmouth REMF a mile away - you can hear them that far off.

The guys who were in hell want to forget it.

The louder they talk the less they did.

Who was president?
Liberal MSNBC got it right

Lyndon Johnson was a civil rights hero. But also a racist.
