        As long as you’re a law-abiding citizen, no one wants your guns. Break any laws while possessing a gun then you’re no longer a law-abiding citizen and deserve your gun rights taken away. It’s simple, to be honest.

        Btw, what is “dair”? You mean “dare” don’t you?

          Nasty Nancy wants our guns, Biden does now days too, Shumer has said so also.
          Most of the Democrats have said they want our guns, “There needs to be back round checks.” Have been since 1986. “Assault weapons” DO NOT EXIST. if you want to call any civilian model gun an assault weapon, then let’s call bats, shoes, fist, feet, forks, knives, rocks, cars, ETC, they all were used at one time or another to assault someone.

          “We just want ‘common sense’ gun laws”, I sure don’t want to follow their lack of common sense.

          “AR 15’s kill people”, really, I, having owned one for close to 20 years, have yet to see my AR, jump up , run out the door and shoot at some one. Neither have I, in my 50+ years on this planet, ever heard of an AR doing that. “There should be a forced buy back”. I didn’t by any guns from the government, so how can they “buy them back”?

          Just what laws were the couple from St. Louis breaking? BLM/ANTIFA terrorists destroyed private property, and threatened them and their property. They armed themselves, guess who got arrested, not the terrorists. Yes, later, after the state attorney general stepped in, the charges were dropped.

            Again, no one wants to take away your stupid guns. And don’t go changing narrative to another story that has no bearing on this article. Karen & Ken, who used guns to threaten unarmed people walking by violated laws.

          What did Beto O’Rourke about forced buy back? What have Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein said?
          There are others.

      A prime example of, “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”. How many of the guns used in this shooting were registered or stolen. How many of the shooters were legal to carry.

        I have heard the right say for 50 years the Dems want your guns. I still have mine. Can I ask you snowflakes who are so afraid of not having a gun how many times you have used yours to protect yourself or your property? I have never had a need to use mine. Not even close.

          I have had 3 incidents where , once they found I was armed, the people trying to ruin my property, and attack me, decided to leave without doing their intended damage.

            You don’t have very good friends. Were they trying to steal your pot plants?
