Andy Parker, the father of slain WDBJ journalist Alison Parker, is demanding that politicians restrict access to firearms, saying he will personally become a crusader for this issue if need be.
"If I have to be the John Walsh of gun control and -- look, I'm for the Second Amendment, but there has to be a way to force politicians that are cowards and in the pockets of the NRA to come to grips and make sense -- have sensible laws so that crazy people can't get guns. It can't be that hard," said Parker in an interview with CNN's "New Day."
What generally happens after mass shootings is that politicians offer their condolences but wave off any calls for gun control or other legislative measures. They say it's too soon and not the right time. But with mass shootings happening nearly every week, this sort of response essentially puts the issue off indefinitely.
Yes Georgie has been convicted, can't leave the country without going to jail.
In what is the first ever conviction of its kind anywhere in the world, the former US President and seven key members of his administration were... found guilty of war crimes. Bush, #$%$ Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo were tried in absentia in Malaysia...At the end of the week-long hearing, the five-panel tribunal unanimously delivered guilty verdicts against Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and their key legal advisors who were all convicted as war criminals for torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment. Full transcripts of the charges, witness statements and other relevant material will now be sent to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as the United Nations and the Security Council.
Think the GOP has lost it's mind, they can't believe Trump is the poll leader. There is no way they would ever vote DNC but a lot of them aren't going to vote if a wacko Bird get's the nomination.
“There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.”
I hear the little kid crying Wolf for the thousandth time, "Martha where did you put my pitch fork?"
yeah, even the police say the right wing terrorist are the biggest danger to the U.S.
In a survey we conducted with the Police Executive Research Forum last year of 382 law enforcement agencies, 74 percent reported anti-government extremism as one of the top three terrorist threats in their jurisdiction; 39 percent listed extremism connected with Al Qaeda or like-minded terrorist organizations. And only 3 percent identified the threat from Muslim extremists as severe, compared with 7 percent for anti-government and other forms of extremism.
The self-proclaimed Islamic State’s efforts to radicalize American Muslims, which began just after the survey ended, may have increased threat perceptions somewhat, but not by much, as we found in follow-up interviews over the past year with counterterrorism specialists at 19 law enforcement agencies. These officers, selected from urban and rural areas around the country, said that radicalization from the Middle East was a concern, but not as dangerous as radicalization among right-wing extremists.
An officer from a large metropolitan area said that “militias, neo-Nazis and sovereign citizens” are the biggest threat we face in regard to extremism. One officer explained that he ranked the right-wing threat higher because “it is an emerging threat that we don’t have as good of a grip on, even with our intelligence unit, as we do with the Al Shabab/Al Qaeda issue, which we have been dealing with for some time.” An officer on the West Coast explained that the “sovereign citizen” anti-government threat has “really taken off,” whereas terrorism by American Muslim is something “we just haven’t experienced yet.”
LOL, let's hope so, he will make Goldwater look like a winner
Nearly twice as many Americans have been killed by right-wing extremists since 9/11 as have died at the hands of radical Muslims on US soil, a new report found. There have also been nearly three times as many deadly right-wing attacks as jihadist ones.
In almost a decade-and-a-half, 48 Americans have died in the US in 19 attacks by white supremacists, so-called “sovereign citizens” and other non-Muslim extremists, while 26 have died in seven jihadist attacks on US soil during that same time period, research center New America found as it compiled a new database on deadly attacks in the US since 9/11.
well virtually all the mass shootings have been done by far right religious conservatives, you know in the real world
Hillary landslide likely
I am not a Trump supporter.
However if Jeb, Graham, Kasich or the rest of the RINO bunch that is running is elected than I consider that to be almost as bad as Clinton or whatever democrat is running.
I am not voting next year instead I am writing on my ballot that as long Boehner and McConnel are in the leadership I will not vote for ANY republicans.
I wrote the texas state RNC and told them this. They sent me back an email that said "Well you know we need enough republicans in Senate to override Obama's vetos our hands are tied"
REALLY?? REALLY? I guess they take me for an idiot. .Please name the last time republicans got 66 senators elected. Hell instead of supporting conservative senators and house members the "leadership" primaried them. The GOP establishment has shown that they do not want my vote and I say #$%$ them I am not going to give it to them because they are only slightly better than the dems.
I am sick and tired of the #$%$ RINOs and the lies from the GOP establishment.
I held my nose and voted for McCain
I held my nose and gagged and voted for Romney.
To the GOP establishment I say #$%$" never again.

"That's a signal to the boys, and even to Dad, that they should nonchalantly drop their eyes and look down at their shoes as we walk past her," they wrote.
Says the Duggar family source: "They say it, and all the boys look straight down to the floor every time. It's like an automatic military thing. Things like that blow my mind."

Donald Trump has resumed his war of words against Megyn Kelly. And it looks like Fox News isn't going to stay silent about it.
Trump is "totally out of control" and his Twitter attacks are "totally unwarranted," Kelly's colleague Brian Kilmeade said on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning.
A total of 10 Fox hosts, reporters and commentators have rebuked Trump online. Jedediah Bila, a rotating host of the 12 p.m. talk show "Outnumbered," called Trump's comments about Kelly "childish and in poor taste."
the S&P has to go down another 80% in the next year and a half, from today's levels
there you go with facts again,
BOSTON — Donald Trump on Friday denounced a violent attack against a homeless Hispanic man in Boston whose attacker told police he was inspired, in part, by Trump's rhetoric that people in the country illegally should be deported. It was a change in tone for the Republican presidential candidate, who's known for his incendiary remarks.
"Boston incident is terrible. We need energy and passion, but we must treat each other with respect," Trump tweeted after coming under criticism for failing to condemn the attack more strongly. "I would never condone violence."
cause the haters just gotta hate
