Among many other things, a 15 year old is not an adult.
A 15 year old is an American. Can we assume, since you refuse to answer the question, you have never reached out to a troubled teen?

Are you a racist too?

How did "hang[ing] blacks" stop occurring? Did the government ban ropes or force rope manufactures to shut down? Or did they find who did it and punish them?

I know you won't answer any of these questions... It's becoming clear critical thought isn't your thing.

Well said.
In so many words I believe the same,but,couldn't nail it the way you just did.
More legislation won't solve anything because gun control isn't the problem.
Peoples behavior has to change.
Thats a much harder row to hoe and this administration only sees what will advance their agenda in the here and now,not in the long term.

Are you saying a 15-year-old American is exempt from the Bill of Rights?

Or are you saying the government removing the rights of Americans will keep 15-year-olds from killing people?

Genius: so what about 14 year olds? 13? 9? 6?

Do 4 year olds have a right to handle a gun? or are they..."exempt"?

Minors property is considered their parents.

The parents are responsible for their kids, so what is wrong with taking your kids out shooting?

Those lynchings were done by the Ku Klux Klan, the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party. The first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention.

Three years after Appomattox, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting blacks citizenship in the United States, came before Congress: 94 percent of Republicans endorsed it.
The records of Congress reveal that not one Democrat – either in the House or the Senate – voted for the 14th Amendment. Matter of fact I don't think any Democrats were present,it was sheet washing Tuesday.
