    Many of the homeless are mentally-ill. I'm kinda surprised that a libertarian would support the NRA position of arming mentally-ill people.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    I'm not. They have no conscience ... and just want to push their product.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

    It is, and isn't it a clear illustration of how much/most of his base see him as a divinely-appointed political messiah? It boggles the mind.

    Cool, from now on, I'll let you tell me what Lon means whenever he posts. Then I won't need to even read his posts.

    FAKE NEWS. The NRA does not support arming the mentally ill. Nor do they support arming the homeless. This is why you libs can't ever get your facts straight.

    Well that, but the real issue is the glorification of youth. The admiration of the youth-culture. Such as it is, those who follow this thought have trouble with maturity. They never grow up. Anyone who advocates arming homeless people with shot guns thinks like a child.

    Most homeless persons have mental illness and that is why they are homeless. They should not be allowed to carry guns, as such ideas comes with boyishness too much cowboy, old west thinking wrongly applied to a modern urban society.

    In essence the Senator is a child!

    That is what is wrong with Donald Trump, when anyone speaks, "because I am smart" on being criticized over not paying taxes, then we should know that person is not mature. The mature pays the taxes, then tries to amend what he or she believes is wrong with the tax code. mature adults do not just avoid paying their taxes.

    So, we have an immature president who shows little restraint.

    Look out now, he is about to fall on his face and that means stocks will drop,so get you cash ready to buy low!
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Good job at explaining how to really help the homeless. My point above addresses why anyone would think arming such persons is improper and why we have such ideas passed around today.

    If Ike were around, he would find that man unbalanced,yet not get the youth culture glorification, as seeing is believing.
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Well, let's take a look...

    The National Rifle Association opposed a bill that could have taken suspected Waffle House shooter Travis Reinking's guns away, rather than leaving them with the man's father who returned them despite Reinking displaying signs of mental illness.

    Jeffrey Reinking, the father of the alleged shooter behind the deaths of four people in Antioch, Tenn., Sunday, may face charges after his son was able to regain his weapons, including an AR-15.

    Reinking, 29, faces murder charges for the slaughter that came after a history of incidents with authorities, including an arrest for crossing a barrier at the White House last summer that led Illinois State Police to ask for his firearms license to be revoked.
