Florida Legislature's Knee-Jerk Reaction To School Shooting: Declares No Ban On Assault Weapons


That stuff in big print is what is known as a "headline."  The stuff in tiny print after is not.  Thus the "headline" not mentioning anything about porn is misleading.

dm2754 Well the recent suicides of numerous porn actresses certainly hasn't been a blessing.  One was bullied on line as she didn't want to work with someone who had shot gay porn.  There have been others.  The porn industry isn't all sunshine and lollypops.

Draculya It hasn't for me or anybody in my family...at least that I know of.  But if you want to be willfully obtuse and pretend that porn is good for kids or that some people don't consume porn to the detriment of their relationships with others then quite frankly go ahead.

Headline misleading = post fail.  Porn is bad for kids and teens.  Many adults view way too much porn and it is damaging.  Recent shootings don't change those facts.

barry9a Well perhaps local, state and federal government need to better prioritize what they actually do with tax dollars.  You know, like I have to with my money and you have to do with yours.  Just what the federal government manages to piss away in a month could easily put armed guards in the schools and provide money to train teachers (who would like/choose the training) in proper firearm procedures.  These are the same teachers already charged with the safety of students but fat lot of good they are when some nut job shows up with a gun!  Perhaps a program to help vets when they come home or get discharged.  They already have firearms training.  Perhaps they could really be able to help the school in their home town for a while as they transition back to civilian life in turn they know a job could be waiting for them.  There's plenty of money in this country to cover the important stuff.  I'd say keeping schools safe ranks higher than say, teaching people in China how to brew beer or the Dept of Agriculture blowing 10 million yearly on promoting sustainable forest management in other nations.  Let the Chinese figure how to brew their own beer and let other nations read a fucking book on trees.  See, I just freed up over 10 million in about 10 seconds.

Long guns can be owned and used by those under 18 in most states last I checked.  A dad can legally give his kid a .22 rifle for his 16th birthday.  But under federal law it is illegal to sell long guns to anybody under 18, private sale or not.  If the film's depiction of events is accurate, fat old dude should be in hot water.

holygod All semi-auto weapons can effectively kill large groups of people.  So your argument would be a complete ban on semi-auto weapons, yes?  If so fine.  I'm not trying to give you an opinion.

theman01 Of course the root cause of this type of behavior has nothing to do with guns but that kind of thought ain't going to fly around here.

daegog Oh yes...now I understand.  I keep forgetting that a huge number of people (especially Hollywood types) think that anybody who voted for Trump or sports a MAGA hat is a Nazi.  This notion is so void of any intellectual credence as to beggar belief but it IS out there.  I'll try to keep it in mind.  But the thought that so many Americans are so clueless that they would lose a battle of wits with a stuffed iguana does depress me so.

daegog It wasn't funny because there are only about 3 people on earth who think you can't make fun of Nazi's and none of them post here.  It also wasn't funny because the amount of true Nazi's out there are about .0000000001% of the population.  Termites are a bigger threat to society than Nazi's.

I just need to say that for all of you claiming the NRA has bought and paid for Trump and anybody else in DC...their contributions account too dick in the grand scheme of politics.  They put 25 million into the 2016 election cycle...they go heavy during presidential years as do all others.....but a billion was spent overall.

daegog  "Having more fathers around might help."   "Less fast food might help too.  Less violence in movies and media might help too. "

Yes, let us equate a father in the home with fast food and movies....do you even hear yourself when you speak?  

I'm not trying to stir up "internet bullshit"...I'm seriously trying to get you to think logically.  Do you seriously think that having a father or not makes no difference in the life of a child?

daegog Dude...black people commit murder at a rate much more vast than any other race in the country.  So they don't specialize in shooting up schools?  Well good for them there!  But a few more fathers around might fucking help in other areas...ya think?  You're the one with dog that don't hunt.

normalfreak2 I know.  He and his brother were adopted and those parents died when he was about 5.  I don't have a solution to "people die", nobody does but it doesn't negate the stats on kids without dads.

What needs to happen to help prevent this kind of thing?....three letters.   DAD.  The stats on crime, abuse, behavioral disorders, involvement with drug at an early age, HS dropout rates....all of these are staggeringly high for kids without fathers.  The stats on single motherhood rates have jumped since the 60's...20 to over 70 percent in the black community....5 to over 40 percent for whites.  Kids need dads and those who don't have one are the ones who grow up to do this kind of shit.  But yeah IAB...let's take the easy argument that it's the gun.

Never done Taco Bell and I intend to keep the streak alive.  I've also given up on my local KFC.  They gave a me a chicken sandwich that had a cold chicken patty.  Not just room temp but cold...like 42 degrees.  I mean if you're going to serve me left-over chicken could you at least do me the courtesy of heating it up again.

Just a thought...if the fed govt wasn't involved in education at any level there wouldn't be a "Trump's Education Department" to complain about.  And don't come back with any kind of we need a fed ed department nonsense.  If there was ever an issue that should be handled at the local level its education.  Prior to the 70's, if you wanted to fuck up every school in the country you actually had to visit every school in the country.  Now all you need to do is send some lawyers to DC.
