26. How did we get on this Disgracefully slender limb

-Firstly the purposeful misinterpretation of the 2nd Amendment allows anyone sane or troubled to own firearms (Zimmerman life is bizarre: https://www.newsweek.com/george-zimmerman-timeline-trayvon-martin-459300 )

-Florida's “Stand Your Ground'' law basically says you can use deadly force – such as shooting someone – to defend yourself if you fear for their life, or are afraid of serious bodily injury. In Florida, there is no duty to retreat before using deadly force. Regardless the actual threat.

-Leniency and loose application of the "Stand Your Ground" claims by defendants are often accepted by courts

-When people of color are involved it is most likely their side loses in court.

30. How did we get here? Reagan era repeal of the fairness doctrine.

That led in turn to hate radio - venomous lies spewed daily on thousands of AM radio shows - Fox News, etc.

Plus the NRA laundering money for arms traffickers, and lately, Putin.

31. I voted for Reagan

Can you imagine my later rage upon enlightenment finding "The Gripper" was the head of the snake we know fight!? Dutch aided and abetted the sociopathy (or psychopathy) currently gripping Cons. Our struggles today stem from Ronnie's addled mind and his tacit allowance of Conservative vices then which today endangers America under Trumpism. I vow to do my best to make amends.

32. You know what else detracts from his "message"? His lack of an apology to Nancy Pelosi...

You know what else detracts from his "message"? His lack of an apology to Nancy Pelosi for the awful things he said about her.

He's had plenty of time to "grow up" and to understand and accept his mistake. It's easy to be a complete jerk when you're "just a kid" (so I'm told) but now that he's had a chance to reflect on the past, hopefully he's mature enough to accept personal responsibility.

Where's the apology, David?

16. He and other RW agitators went there to intimidate BLM protesters,

ie people fighting for racial justice.

It just so happened (by chance) he killed whites but his RW/racist intent remains the same.

11. You got that right!

And he is being celebrated by some! It sounds like the divider in Chief still plans on visiting even though the only ones who want him there are the KKK.

The joke is on the shooter. Decent white people got in his way so he didn't even get his intended targets. What puzzles me is how he could walk past all of the law enforcement with a long gun in his hand and someone else had one at the rally the other night and it was immediately taken from them. The excuses they didn't know he was the shooter. Someone is shot and killed and someone is walking around with a gun and you don't even stop to question him? Yeah. That's intelligent.

Thank you, David Hogg.....Keep speaking out and making these white supremacists, including DJT accountable. We all need your voice. Stay safe and keep your foot on the gas pedal. Keep America safe for everyone. You've been there and your voice can change this horrible situation. STAY SAFE!!!

Actually, this is the logo of an intramural basketball team formed at the University of Northern Colorado in 2002 and named in response to the Native American mascot controversy.
