Re: “The Usual Suspects

It's mostly native born Americans trying to break into your house, as in my neighborhood. It's at most 5% of the population who wants to be armed to the teeth vs the rest. Many other nations do let in immigrants.

You can't even accept that a person experiencing a current health care crisis shouldn't have their weapon taken away? Who's the extremist here?

Re: “"Enough is Enough"

So we have to deal with mental health AND guns. Aren't we capable of walking at the same time that we chew gum?

Re: “New Signs, Same Heartbreak

"Monument ave and the statues carry their own weight with tourism dollars."

I don't think so. Most who may want to do that will find other things to do. And do we really want a bunch of people down here channeling their inner CSA II persona? That seems so 1956.

Your Maggie Walker comment is the final proof that you're a far-right, Breitbart conservative. You earlier repeated the conspiracy theory that the Democratic Party is racist when it is the most racist ones that have become Republicans.

I have however learned a bit here about how to present the argument.

Re: “"Enough is Enough"

Pappy: How do any of the four proposals of the special session take away your rights or your guns? Unless you fall under say the red flag provision they won't, unless there's something very specific that we're all missing here. My extremely pro-gun brother is fine with the red flag provision in his state, which he enforces as a policeman.

The electorate was gaslighted by the KKK thing and came to see that. Guns are different from everything else. I've already explained elsewhere that all reforms fall if there are too many guns or if it's too easy for the wrong people to get them. Gun laws work. You don't have the shoot or intimidate anyone else in a civilized society.

The reverse is true as well. If all we do is deal with guns the problem of violence won't abate because people will choose other weapons.

This is not an either/or proposition. All must be done.

In any case it's likely there will be a majority in the General Assembly to pass thr governor's recommendations in January.

Re: “New Signs, Same Heartbreak

Richmondman -- I'm with Eddie. Do you support huge billboards that describe exactly why the statues are there? How the history they celebrate is false, and wad wholly invented? If so, then the tourists would learn something.

As for Lincoln he was more conservative than his party through virtually the entire Civil War but came around to emancipation and a fairly respectful view of blacks by 1865. The whites on the Losers' Lane statues never did. I'm tired of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep that going.

Liberal -- perhaps I might suggest you move to Hanover or some other place with the yellow signs on wooden supports next to the highway. The statues should come down if most people want them down. I think most do here, though there is a significant minority that doesn't.

How do you feel about the Boulevard name change?

Re: “City Council Passes Mayor’s Gun Ban

If gun free zones are such a joke, why is NRA headquarters a gun free zone?
