President is already using this to push his agenda for gun control. Speaking now.

And POTUS didn't waste any time injecting gun control politics into it. :nono:

Please, those of you with strong enough stomachs to listen to the treasonous anti-American oligarch puppet in the White House...what did he say about guns?

Supposedly reloaded 5 times. Probably with standard 45 mags. Guess 7 and 8 round mags are "high capacity" now.

Per Allen West (Written by Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief )
According to a 2013 Pew Research study, 37 percent of households had an adult who owned a gun — 24 percent said they owned a gun, and 13 percent said someone else in their household did.

There are about 319 million people in the United States, so that means there are about 118 milion gun owners in this nation. Mother Jones reports there have been 69 mass shootings in the last 30 years. The Washington Post says, A Congressional Research Service report published in 2013 counted 78 incidents over roughly the same period, in which 547 were killed.

That means, out of 118 million gun owners, 78 or .00007 percent of the gun owning population are potential mass murderers (using a 30-year total).

When arrested before the shooting he had in his possession suboxone a drug to help you get off opiates.

Apparently all the recent mass shootings have involved people on prescription or withdrawal from drugs. The types of drugs have been withheld as the government was afraid releasing the names would cause people to stop taking their medications.

Antidepressants use or discontinuance are a common thread in every one of these "mass" shootings.

My prayers for the families and victims. Evil is alive and well it seems.

You can thank Shannon Watts for this.

I thought about posting a response, so I read the comments. I see no way to have a rational discussion with the posters. Proverbs 26:4

I've not been exposed to such foul language since I retired from the Army. My soldiers were much better behaved.

Still, I do not regret that I spent my life defending their right to express themselves.

Look at the bright side. Charles is reaching an audience that would never visit this forum or consider his positions in other venues. While many will be offended, because they don't think, some will consider his words and possibly even change their minds.

The only thing we have to do is ensure that they don't misrepresent what he says. Meanwhile, logic is winning the argument over emotion, and the left is getting more and more frustrated.

Wow. Those people are just sick. The language and what they say. I try to have a rational discussion but they are in full on meltdown mode. Feel like I need to take a shower... (SHUDDER)
