    It's a useless change in the law that will accomplish nothing. It's security theater and nothing more.

    The kid could not have purchased the weapon without his care takers' knowing. And children shouldnt' be buying guns in the first place. If parents or guardians want them to have them to use, fine.

    You're right there, Bro!
    What we need is Federal laws that bring some sanity to the scene, as Australia has done.

    It IS a factor in getting purchased guns into killing hands. The facts support that. I'm not a fan of depriving rights. BUT when one group -- like HS school students DEMAND disarmament -- they need to be the FIRST to give up that right.

    Later on in life -- they'll kick themselves for demanding that and fix it right..

    How are you conservatives going to feel about Trump when he raises the age for buying a gun to 21, and bans the sales of bump stocks?

    And, if he does, the NRA is going to go against him. They gave him 300,000,000 for his presidential campaign.

    Trump endorses raising minimum age for more weapons

    Trump said on Twitter, "I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks!" The president did not immediately offer more details.


    Trump's focus on gun violence came as leaders of the National Rifle Association offered a vigorous defense of gun rights during the Conservative Political Action Conference, urging enhanced — and armed — security at schools. An armed Broward County sheriff's deputy, the regular school resource officer, was on the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, at the time of the shooting.

    Agreed. Offer to accept so long as the voting age is raised along with it, and watch that proposal die a quick death.

    The psych industry is ABUSING kids with diagnoses no better than guesses and unmonitored medications. Not likely THAT is gonna solve HS shooter problem. It's not ADULTS shooting up schools. So it's a reasoned focused thing to suggest. Drastic -- but probably effective. And again -- THEY should be the first to sign off on THEIR rights to "solve the problem"...

    I suggest they all sign a petition to deny long gun purchases to themselves..

    Get busy... You leftists go give them medals of the Proletariat for their heroism... :19:
