    or, maybe we should be discussing shutting down all the mcdonalds. liberals say guns are being used to kill and theyd like to ban guns. mcdonalds kills thousands upon thousands each year and this democrat isnt worried about the detriment to society? its almost as if they dont care about american lives being lost for no reason and they only care about ban culture and pandering to the vocal minority. yes, raise minimum wage to $15 an hr, id love to pay $11.50 for a gallon of milk after everyone else raises their minimum wage……….. do people on the left ever bother to think?
