    Yup, we should create a gun with a Control-Z function, so if you shoot an intruder and then realize it was a relative you can undo the action and backup in time a few minutes.

    By this rationale driving cars should be banned. You do get that right?

    Nevermind...I should know better than to ask.

    With pretty bad results thus far. I was pretty certain you would be unable to understand the fallacy of your comparison. Rarely surprised by liberal thought.

    I once thought automated cars were a terrible idea but this generation of drivers has changed my mind. Based on the number of people on their phones while they’re driving, it’s like they already think their car is automated. Really stupid.

    I responded with a joke cause I figured you were joking but I guess not.

    I can't be bothered to type out an argument against this so why don't you google "ban cars gun control argument" or something like that and educate yourself

    Here's Why You Should Think Twice Before Posting Pictures of Your Firearms on Social Media
    > Google and Facebook are keeping tabs on gun owners' firearms. According to The Firearms Blog (TFB), the two tech giants are scanning users' pictures to look for serial numbers. They're then creating an index of every person's firearms based on the image scans. If you've posted a picture of your firearm on a social networking site and didn't smear out the serial number, chances are it's indexed on Google images. Simply type in the serial number in quotes and search images.
    >If you're going to share pictures of your firearms, suppressors or anything with a serial number, take the extra 30 seconds and blur out the serial number. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Interesting side flank by the Sandy Hook families. I'm shocked the Supreme Court didn't dismiss the lawsuit outright. They are suing for deceptive marketing practices, not for wrongful death, of which gun manufacturers are immune due to previous laws. (Imagine Ford being sued because a drunk driver hit someone with his Ford.) But nobody bought the weapons that were used in the Sandy Hook shooting for the purposes of shooting up the school. The shooter stole the weapons he used. Not sure how this lawsuit isn't just dead on arrival. How can a gun manufacturer be liable for someone stealing their guns. Imagine if a guy robbed a bank using a stolen Ford, and the family of the victims sued Ford because a Ford was stolen and used in that crime. Makes no sense.

    This ruling is mind boggling. Extend this logic out and any car manufacturer who advertises sports car speed and handling etc. are liable in any sports car related death. SCOTUS apparently does not believe in personal accountability anymore.

    Not really......the SCOTUS has a habit of letting things play out in the lower courts.......letting the process take its course instead of jumping in. It will eventually end up back in front of the SC. In the mena time...lawyers make a killing.

    Did they send it back to the lower courts? I thought they made a decision.

    OK, I re-read the article now, and they did send it back by not acting on it.

    Usually the SC does not set into theses cases until it has completed the process. Only when it goes against a previous SC decision will they stop it in its tracks.

    Gun control standoff heats up in Virginia as 'sanctuaries' grow, big votes loom
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/gun-control-virginia-sanctuaries

    > On a more positive note
    According to a new poll of 625 registered Virginia voters, former Vice President Joe Biden is the only Democrat hopeful outperforming President Donald Trump in the Old Dominion, and not by much.

    The poll, conducted by Mason Dixon Polling & Strategy, pitted the President against four Democrats seen as the party’s most formidable front runners: US Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and of course former Vice President Joe Biden.

    According to the polling data, President Trump is leading Warren 48-44, Sanders 51-45, and Buttigieg 47-45. While Trump trails Biden 49-45, it would seem the President has gained extremely significant ground, as previous polls have reflected as much as a double-digit deficit for Trump when the two candidates are presented head to head.

    Here is the lying liar AOC stating that there were confederate flags flying everywhere and no police presence. I can't find one single confederate flag in any videos of the protest. Richmond reports there were several hundred police officers assigned to this event. In fact, The Virginia State Police, the Virginia Capitol Police and the Richmond Police all had a massive presence, limiting access to Capitol Square to only one entrance and requiring those who entered to go through a security screening first.

    What a lying liar she is, and a race baiter.
