Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

Eddie, I think your thought is linked to this piece of news about scam calls increasing to become nearly half of all calls by next year. So much misinformation is out there. And now th3 scam callers want to lie to us just like the conservatives, Breitbartists, and Daily Caller readers -- This is Fox News in hopes that conservatives will click it http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/09/21/nea…

Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

Don Key -- your comment is an excellent example of pigeonholing a debate into either regulating guns or having good parenting, and choosing your favored good parenting as the winner.

Of course good parenting is important. If no one raises their kids well then there is chaos.

But even with good parenting, a deficient environment with, say, too many guns will result in suboptimal outcomes e.g. more fear and a higher murder rate than countries that have a handle on the number of guns in the land.

Each falls without the other.

Since my wife will come back soon from throwing out a deadbeat, we'll talk about the Constitution and the NRA's radically incorrect reading of it in other posts.

Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

Ajg 45 -- Welcome from Breitbart. This isn't the same place. Have you been to Canada? I have. Perhaps you can elaborate oon your ideas.

I meant to say 90 guns per 100 peoplehttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estimated_number_of_civilian_guns_per_capita_by_country

Canada has about 30 guns per 100 people.

Re: “Home Sweet Home

1Ronald -- I think Barbara would be very upset to see you say this -- Barbara can come into this forum and correct me if I'm wrong.

Housing, and other, discrimination was and still is to some extent real.

Your comment is an excellent example of a tactic used by conservatives and Breitbart commenters to try to pigeonhole a debate into an either/or choice and to set up the one you like as the winner.

Of course it's important for people like Mr. Wurtzel to expand the pie and provide jobs to people. I'm sure he was a nice man and an honorable person.

And that is why I'm nearly certain that he supported Barbara fiercely in her mission. Community and proper distribution of wealth and assets is important along with individual effort and pulling one's weight. Each falls without the other. The benefits of community, and opportunities for individuals, certainly should not be rationed by ethnicity.
