    They could definitely teach Trump a thing or two. Not only the words to a song Trump only pretends to know but to basic decent behavior... the road to leadership starts with a single line leader.

    Yes, we both took part in D-Day operations, didn't we?

    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.

    Trump has his cheat sheet ready for the next time he has to sing America the Beautiful:

    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.....

    Barbarian

    How does that support the idea that the NRA supports arming the mentally ill? There are many other ramifications of the bill to be considered.

    They would have been protected if mentally-ill people weren't allowed to have guns. That's the point....

    What's stopping them from being killed by non mentally I'll people?

    Not the NRA's fault.

    And a libertarian wouldn't suggest giving guns to anyone. They should be purchased. Libertarians are mostly against any sort of government handout.

    What I was thinking, when I posted this:

    Quote Originally Posted by annabenedetti View Post

    But after posting that I followed series of links until I found his website and this video (which I posted but it was lost in the data error crash), and it seems he's trying to crowdfund the money, not use taxpayer money (at least not at this time).

    What bothers me in the video: Ellison's seems to me to be circumventing the law although he claims otherwise. He videos the man in the gun store being turned down because he can't provide the proper documentation to purchase the gun - so they go outside and Ellison proceeds to give one to the man.
