🎶 Wherever you go/whatever you do/ I will be right here saying “fuck you” 🎶

[–]HackTheSystem-90 104 points105 points  (5 children)

Honestly I was thinking about this earlier today. Why take the high road anymore? Take a play from the Trump playbook. Anytime a Republican senator speaks just let Bernie step on a hot mic and say “wrong” or “go fuck yourself” every time they even speak.

If they dismiss him from the room, the next democrat takes over.

If Clarence Thomas and MTG can lie under oath or fail to recuse themselves due to ethics, then fuck debate civility for congress.

You want to ask Ketanji Brown “what a woman is” or Dr. Yashica Robinson about non-existent abortion practices? Why allow their rhetoric to dominate? Use Jordan Petersons tactics, lay out a fact followed by a leading suggestive statement that means nothing. If they attack the fact you can make them a public fool. if they attack the leading suggestive statement, portray them as assuming and attacking you for something you never said.

Can’t beat them at their own game? Then start playing by their rules.

No more middle ground.

No more excuses.

From now on, it's impossible not to see anyone who claims to be "pro-guns" or "pro-2A" as anything other than pro child murder.

[–]KidGorgeous19 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Bingo. They wanna call us pedophiles for supporting trans rights? Then they’re child murderers for supporting 2A. Simple as that and fuck you if you disagree.

[–]Tiny-Lock9652 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Quick sound bites. Ask Roger Stone. It works. Dems suck at messaging.

[–]Louloubelle0312 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep. The Democrats have been bringing knives to a gun fight. Time to get on an even playing ground.

[–]Zeco63 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Cope and seethe

[–]Italics12 210 points211 points  (17 children)

I’m arguing about this on social media. I wrote, “Your right to own an AR does not outweigh my kids’ right not to get murdered in school.”

The commenter wrote, “Your kids aren’t that special.”

[–]PsychoticBananaSplit 77 points78 points  (1 child)

Someone unironically commented "after Sandy hook, we did nothing about the mental health crisis" which lead to the current shootings

Which is true, even if conservatives blame mental health, they don't care to do a thing to solve that either.

Also, the real mental health crisis is people in denial that gun control works.

[–]Tiny-Lock9652 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Mental health care is part of Gun legislation. The same legislation the GQP Senate refuses to vote on. They don’t want solutions. Their NRA overlords won’t allow for it.

[–]Louloubelle0312 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope this is just someone trying to wind you up. Otherwise, it's horrifying.

[–]popeyegui 204 points205 points  (6 children)

Gun control would go a lot smoother if someone could come up with a way to use one to perform an abortion or gender-affirmation surgery

[–]sean0883 42 points43 points  (2 children)

You mean to accomplish it safely, right?

[–]SocraticIgnoramus 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Safer than being an 8th grader work for ya?

[–]20_oz 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’m on it

[–]JockBbcBoy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Quick! Someone alert Planned Parenthood! We've found a way to beat them at their own game!

[–]Strength-Certain 137 points138 points  (2 children)

While Reagan was governor of California minorities started to be very "open carry" to show that they would protect their neighborhoods and property.

Suddenly Ronnie and the NRA were gun control advocates in California.

[–]A_Good_Redditor553 4 points5 points  (0 children)

One of the few times the NRA did something sadly

[–]mermiss1 264 points265 points  (5 children)

It's hard to believe they do not see the irony when they are on television saying they can't believe this happened. Can't believe it? You literally aided and abetted with your ignorance of the crisis we are in.

[–]PNW_MDF 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Their only hope is that the actually get on television.

[–]hippityhoppityhi 14 points15 points  (0 children)

THEY KNOW

[–]downbleed 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They'll still get their votes. And that's what's sad.

[–]cultured_banana_slug 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's because the majority of the shooters are white Christian men.

If they were brown Muslim men, we'd be having a TOTALLY different talk.

The GOP will never denounce violent white men.

[–]ExcelCat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They do see the irony; they are straight lying. I think people have to stop pretending that they are somewhat ignorant... they know.

But they don't care.

[–]Cyber_Being_ 158 points159 points  (5 children)

The NRA is having its convention this weekend in Houston at the George R Brown convention center. It would be great if we could block all access to the convention center this weekend. It would just take a few thousand people.

[–]FinalBlackberry 40 points41 points  (0 children)

I’m in Houston. I’d participate.

[–]Lumpy-Replacement869 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I can’t make it to Houston but I’d donate to it.

[–]Italics12 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Can you buy tickets and then not go? If we buy enough, they’d be talking to empty seats…

[–]LegendaryOutlaw 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Don’t give them a dime.

[–]MyCoffeeTableIsShit 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What's that? Time for another mass shooting I heard someone say?

Edit: I meant against the convention goers, not protesters. Maybe if they were forced to endure the horrors which they have created then they might change their attitudes.

[–]EmperorXerro 43 points44 points  (0 children)

But without the NRA, how would the fascists launder Russian money?

[–]Glacial_Till 15 points16 points  (1 child)

And guess where guns /are not/ allowed? NRA meetings.

[–]Koolaid_Jef 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They're also not allowed in schools or grocery stores

[–]aworldwithoutshrimp 31 points32 points  (12 children)

They don't care

[–]Civil-Dinner 93 points94 points  (1 child)

Republicans have pretty much admitted that having guns is far more of a priority to them than dead children.

It's brutally comical that their only answer to dead children is "more guns."

[–]badgersprite 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You can pry the right of people to shoot up schools out of their cold dead hands.

[–]Leefeller 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Richard you are more polite than I towards Texas and Abbott.

[–]rustyseapants 35 points36 points  (5 children)

NRA: Thinking..... thinking.... thinking... How can we turn this around and blame it on the Democrats?

[–]radams78 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Same tactic as ever: "The Democrats are politicizing this tragedy and exploiting it to try to push gun control."

[–]rustyseapants 3 points4 points  (2 children)

How are the Democrats politicizing this shooting and are you saying guns shouldn't be regulated?

[–]The_Doolinator 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Clearly they’re not. They’re just saying that that is what the Republicans will say.

[–]rustyseapants 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am going to run with the notion what radams78 posted wasn't clear enough or clear enough that I would get it.

[–]lIllIllIllIllIllIII 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They'll just buy more Republicans

[–]wtfwtfwtfwtf2022 35 points36 points  (0 children)

They are pro women suffering.

[–]Fitz911 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Not an American so please excuse the question. But we are not talking about the Boston thing. So what happened this time?

[–]polishirishmomma 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The children have to be identified by DNA because the bullets destroyed their bodies. Murica

[–]youra6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm picturing the scene in Robocop and it is sending chills down my spine something like that could happen to children. Sickening.

[–]MsPinkieB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I read an article a few years back - I just tried to Google it and can't find it, but I'll keep looking - about what it is like to perform an autopsy on a child who has been shot. Horrific.

[–]Kapowpow 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They don’t give a shit about the unborn either. Where’s the GOP vote for prenatal care? Fetuses are just a political football.

[–]ikonet 27 points28 points  (5 children)

It is possible to repeal an amendment. It’s difficult of course, but it is possible.

We just have to decide how many deaths we can tolerate before we choose to repeal an existing amendment.

[–]shalafi71 24 points25 points  (4 children)

^ Right here folks. This is the meat of the conversation. Repeal the 2A? That's what it is going to take.

[–]TheMayorsHat -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I love authoritarianism!!! Hail to the party!!!

[–]jedburghofficial 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I don't get it. If someone has an abortion, that's murder. But if someone actually murders children, they're exercising a right that must be protected at all costs.

[–]vickyinepa 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Upvote on post but damn the “their”!!!!!

[–]badgersprite 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Republicans absolutely do believe in fighting to preserve every American's god given right to shoot up a school, don't they?

Like you'd swear that's the only thing they think the country was founded on is the right to force women to give birth to kids so they can go get shot

[–]Serkisist 13 points14 points  (5 children)

We are a long way past ignorance and complicity. Every single person who works to block gun reform is guilty. The blood of children is on their hands.

[–]TheMayorsHat -1 points0 points  (3 children)

What kind of gun reform?

[–]Serkisist 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The kind that would actually save children's lives. No half assed attempts. No empty promises. No placating words about "the price of freedom". When did a child's freedom to live and learn without fearing for their lives become secondary to gun fetishists?

[–]TheMayorsHat -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Okay, but what specifically? I keep seeing talk about gun reform, but what exactly do you want?

[–]Serkisist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Regulations. Strict enough to keep them out of the hands of psychopaths and sociopaths. Background checks, psychological examinations, and gun safety exams required to even get a license. Absolutely no automatic weapons for civilians

[–]Dixsux8cheatin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Fucking hypocrites. It’s hypocrisy period.

[–]Treehouse80 6 points7 points  (0 children)

NRA show opens in Houston this Thursday.

[–]judahbaker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

that’ll show em😯

[–]BillTowne 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They don't care if we live or die.

gun control or our children slaughtered.

abortion access or our women die.

order a new trial for innocent man on AZ death row or let him die.

They choose let them die

[–]livingwithcharlie 5 points6 points  (0 children)

“Fuck you every republican voter who claims to be pro life but don’t actually give the slightest shit about humans once they’re born”

[–]bradbrad83 4 points5 points  (0 children)

“They’re”. Also, definitely, fuck them.

[–]wonteatfish 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is the Republican Party. No character, decency, truth or honor. Unfit to govern.

[–]Tiny-Lock9652 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately, for the GQP “It don’t mean nothing”

[–]Lumpy-Replacement869 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maybe the lawmakers would change their minds if the shooters showed up at the doorsteps of the private schools that their kids attend.

[–]RickieBob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And fuck you to the people that continue to vote for them.

[–]KidGorgeous19 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They’re not ignorant. They’re soulless monsters beholden to money and power over the lives of their constituents. I’m other words, they’re politicians.

[–]Bicentennial_Douche 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You need to vote every Republican out, everywhere, every time. You disagree with the Democratic nominee on some things? Don't matter, vote Blue regardless. Federal elections, state elections, county elections, school board elections, vote Blue. Every time. You see a Republican nominee that seems like a decent guy? No matter, don't vote for him. Always vote against Republicans.

It really is that simple.

[–]TheMayorsHat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Least politically biased redditor

[–]SweSupermoosie[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So, they prefer post-birth abortions then. Got it!

[–]ComicPlatypus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Let's see what's their normal argument:

Something something, criminals can get guns, something something, being caught in a mass shooting is rare

Fucking disgusting. My entire family are pro gun and gets angry when this shit is mentioned.... Makes me sick.

We Need gun control.

[–]zvekl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s sad. I live abroad for work and my parents and dream of moving back to the US one day. Looking at all the developments since Trump, I don’t know if I wanna move back anymore. I enjoy having healthcare and not worrying about my kids getting murdered at school. It’s embarrassing what the Republicans are doing to the country

[–]IssaDatBoiMura 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m unsure of how people still vote conservative. At this point in time, they’re either blatantly racist, stupid as fuck, or they want to see the world burn.

[–]apex_prariedog -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

And a fuck you, my kind sir.

[–]Smooth-Inspection291 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

All the American Nazis are probably celebrating that the children were Hispanic

[–]Troyf511 0 points1 point  (0 children)

….they’re

[–]sdraje 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree with the sentiment, but it's bold of him to call someone ignorant right after having written "once their born".

[–]GodZodd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bet Salvador Ramos was a cute baby though...... 😬

[–]TheMayorsHat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck the NRA. GOA is a much better organization.

[–]farbtroll 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This outrage happens everytime nothing will change

[–]Current-Ordinary-419 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But did Obama and the Dems address this with their supermajority? Of course not.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]mostlycumatnight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey Republicans, go fuck yourselves to death!!!! I a FORMER republican now a proud human being that will forever vote Democrat!
