    Varvel’s gotten really good at illustrating “thoughts and prayers” hasn’t he. Too bad we can’t get his lords and masters to address all this as an actual problem instead of thinking of it all as a series of “oh, that’s too bad”.

    I’d like to test a theory as to whether or not a person can be beaten senseless by their own thoughts and prayers.

    I just can’t seem to run the experiment, because the only people I can find in the “thoughts and prayers” category are already senseless.

    Gary, stuff the thoughts and prayers, until one of theirs gets killed, the gun activists don’t give a rip. Even if one of theirs would get it, (Scalise) they still don’t care!

    “WE NEED EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS!” Except that the FedEx shooter somehow slipped through existing background checks. “WE NEED AN ASSAULT WEAPON BAN!” Except that the Georgia cop ambusher had an actual assault weapon, an AK-47, which requires a special background check and permit.

    The government could have taken his shotgun and locked him up us a kook. Then grabbed Tucker and tossed him in too. Dang legal system.

    To Shod: Nutjobs and ordinary criminals DON’T obey the ‘gun control’ laws on the books NOW! Chicago has very strict gun laws NOW; They don’t prevent criminals from shooting each other and innocent bystanders all the time. MURDER is illegal everywhere in the USA, THAT doesn’t stop nutjobs and criminals either! Democrats want ‘gun control’ to take guns from LAW-ABIDING U. S. citizens. They are AFRAID of armed Republicans. They say it was an ‘armed insurrection’ January 6th, even though NO guns were found on ANY protestors arrested. The ONLY gunfire was a security guard shooting and killing an UNARMED VETERAN! Ice Cream Queen Speaker Nancy STILL insisted on National Guard and fences for HER protection! [Nancy’s HR-1 would make legal ALL the illegal voting crap so successful for Dementia Joe in 2020. Such as: Amnesty, automatic voter registration and NO voter ID, would mean all the adult citizens of OTHER countries who crash the USA border, WILL be allowed to vote for Democrats to reward Dementia Joe for inviting them to surge the border!] To anyone who DID own a small business before the health ‘experts’ convinced the government to shut SMALL businesses down, and tell healthy people to stay home; Especially in Democrat-run cities who allowed BLM and Antifa to burn YOUR businesses down; Will you feel safe without your OWN gun? You can see these Democrat ‘leaders’ are GUARDED BY ARMED MEN! These same Democrat ‘leaders’ ALSO want the police to be defunded. Stop the insanity: vote Republican in 2022!

    Oddly enough, MoanTuna Bull appears to be completely unaware of Gun Show purchases, which require no background checks, just a valid debit card.

    Six people got blood clots out of millions and they halted the J&J trial. 8 people were killed by a gunman at FedEx and crickets from the GQP.

    Not only have our politicians failed miserably in the gun control issue, they’ve failed to address mental health issues, too. When they started shutting down mental hospitals because they were considered to be inhumane, they were supposed to set up a network of halfway houses for the mentally ill. By and large, that never happened. So, a huge number of those patients became homeless. Middle and low-income families who have mentally ill relatives, have very few resources to help them, and so often, a tragedy of some sort occurs. Why hasn’t more been done to address this problem? For one thing, the mentally ill and their families don’t have powerful lobbyists who can bribe the legislators into doing something productive.

    The crocodile tears of the left over cherry picked gun incidents are unbelievable. They could care less about these deaths except that it serves their political agenda. There was 585 black homicides in Chicago over the last year and 155 murders since January 1st. Where’s the outcry over that? Oh, right, doesn’t fit the narrative. But hey, defund the police in an already crime ridden area.

    Yeah, yeah. You care so much about the victims that you’ll do absolutely nothing about gun control.

    Wow, this was Indianapolis, I wonder if the next one will be Varvels mega church, or the Walmart he shops at. Guns Guns Guns, I think that someone like Varvel or any of the “2nd amendment” people would greatly benefit from experiencing a real live active shooter massacre, then they’d stop with the “thoughts and prayers”, and stupid, idiotic vapid cartoons like the one above, and we’d have real change.

    @Shod – Crazies do not abide by ANY gun control laws….ANY! We have common sense gun control laws now! No reports on how the shooters got those weapons. And withoutcommon sense you blame the Republicans. That is dumb!

    Varvel and other gun violence advocates sometimes like to pretend they give a sh!t about the victims.

    AS IF.
