    Can we at least pass functional gun laws barring those with mental illness from owning guns, something the NRA is against?

    No surprise that Steve Kelley would look at another instance of mass genocidal firearm carnage, which we could easily remedy with simple solutions that have been proposed and which have been successful in EVERY OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED NATION IN THE WORLD and, instead of supporting common sense gun safety reforms, wants to POLITICIZE the tragic deaths of 19 school children, as he did ten years after Sandy Hook’s 20 school children and six educators, and make it an attack on public education.

    Yeah, home schooling is great for a tiny extreme minority. Those lucky enough to have parents who are trained educational professionals and can design high level curricula are among the most successful. The vast majority, of course, flounder in the ignorance of the superstition, and historical, scientific and even mathematical revisionism now being peddled by those who see an educated populace as the greatest threat to their plan to subvert democracy and replace it with their own brand of theocracy.

    How utterly predictable.

    SKelley, like all Trump Disciples, hates public education just like he and they hate anything that is public — public libraries, public health, anything public.

    ’Cause if people want their kids to be educated, they need to PAY for it, and not through taxes either. And anyway, taxes are immoral.

    If parents are afraid to send their kids to school, so much the better, to get rid of that socialistcommunistfascist artifact.

    Meanwhile, more worthless thoughts and prayers from all the NRA whores in Congress while more innocent children are slaughtered.

    Don’t go shopping (mall shootings). Don’t go on vacation (airport shootings). Don’t use public transportation (subway shootings). Don’t attend any public gatherings. Don’t go anywhere. That’s what we call freedom

    But still a ‘No’ on gun control, right Kelley?

    Guess that little girl just has to pay the price so you can pretend to feel safe.

    Gun nuts who have school-age children have never explained why they value their weapons over the safety of their own children. They have to realize their guns can’t protect their kids from someone else’s guns.

    Parents are pulling their kids out of public schools and sending them to private schools, doing home schooling or establishing learning pods in record numbers. That was before this latest tragedy. Our schools are failing our kids in so many ways.

    Great idea. It would minimalize the governments influence/intrusion/indoctrination on the children’s lives and give more responsibilities to the parents. As it should be.

    Not to worry kid.. the odds are in your favor that you will not get shot. And, in just a couple of days the media will find something else to focus on and this shooting thing will just be swept under the rug along with all the other shootings.

    Don’t blame him. He is going to a school with no prayer or civics classes. No learning on how to be a good citizen.

    There is no such thing as common sense gun safety reforms, since too many people think that these crimes are done by NRA members. Also, it is a crime to kill anyone, whether it’s with a gun or dynamite (school tragedy in 1927).

    The problem is that we have an increasing number of people in the country with no moral or ethical values. Human life means nothing to them. The Texas shooting is tragic, but equally so are the daily killings in our major cities. We’re worrying about micro aggressions and using the correct pronoun while ignoring the many signals being given about very sick and dangerous people. Focusing on the guns is a distraction from the underlying problem.

    Kelley is suggesting exactly the wrong solution. He was us to respond to a social problem by crawling into the cocoon of the family. Families are important, and everyone needs to grow up in a good family, but we also need to grown up in a good society—a society that promotes good families, by the way. Schools, good schools, are an important way to help children grow socially. We don’t give schools the resources they need to do the job. Home schooling is an individualist solution for a social problem. We need social solutions for social problems, and gun violence in the US is a social problem. I absolutely agree that we need better gun control laws, but I don’t think that’s enough. We need, as a whole society, to agree that violence is not the way to solve problems.

    Fox News’ Coverage of the Uvalde Shooting Was Sickening

    The reaction was especially egregious on Fox News, which decided to put bloviating pundits front and center as information about what happened became public, ignore even the most basic tenets of journalism in favor of reckless speculation, and bring on a steady procession of “experts” to offer harebrained solutions for the epidemic of people with guns killing people in schools. Media Matters put together of compilation of at least 50 of them.

    ‘Why only in America?’: Ted Cruz storms out of Texas school shooting interview

    The Texas senator became irritated after a journalist pressed about why mass shootings seem to happen so often in America

    Murderously stupid republicans have no answer for the mass murders they engender.

    I thought people like SKelley were against home schooling. Kids needed to be with their peers. being targets is just one of those things that come with a gun worshiping society…

    The fact R’s are unwilling to even have a discussion about stopping the gun violence tells you all you need to know about much they care about being “pro-life”. They certainly are pro-birth…but caring about people, kids, babies, does not enter in to their concerns. I think it is more an issue of controlling women and their decisions…

    Could that be what all of this is for? You have to wonder. Is this some kind of plot to close public schools? If the far right can’t stand the kids being educated, they call it being indoctrinated, then this would be a great way to get them to close. Also, every time one of these increasingly violent acts occurs, the sales of guns go up. Could someone be working behind the scenes? Maybe we’re looking the wrong place for the answers.

    There have been over 200 mass murder shootings this year and less than 150 days have passed.

    Republicans are murderously stupid, stop voting for them.
