Some schools in America do have firearms teams that compete. I offer evidence:http://youtu.be/L_-N9_tnWBo
She blew them away with common sense.
Yeah, no she doesn't.
"Achieving stricter gun control laws would obliterate any opportunity I could've had to go to a decent college on a shooting scholarship."
Probably not actually, given that she's probably legally entitled (by virtue of not being a criminal) to own just about any weapon she can afford and that tacking on a background check, waiting period, DNA registration, and/or Oath of Fidelity to the Immortal God-Emperor would at most cost her additional time and registration fees.
"...the issue with gun violence around the nation: guns are not the problem."
Because people are actually shooting each other with those cake batter thingers and everyone's dying of deliciousness
Anyone who can't have life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness without a firearm is a coward
Chicago has strict gun control laws undermined by over-the-border weapons sales. This implication that weapons purchases occur within exclusive, discreet political boundaries is pathetically naive.
Chicago also has a population density that makes Afghanistan look like the backwater shithole it is and the Taliban don't stand-up fights any more.
And anyone who thinks Afghanistan is a model of modern gun control is fucking hallucinating
Most of Afghanistan doesn't have potable water or sewer systems
, never mind meaningful arms control legislation or even competent police for it's enforcement.
Yes, far more people are killed with handguns then rifles -and good fucking luck getting pistol control measures passed, but rifles are predominantly used in the mass shootings that so horrify everyone not dressed up clean and white for a prepared speech.
Ha ha, she doesn't know what Straw Sales are -but she's made it clear that her scholarship's riding on whether I can buy an AR-15 dammit!
Hey. How many people died in Chenpeng Village Primary School stabbing? Oh right -zero
Obligatory race-baiting, check. Carry on.
On one hand we get "poor people shoot each other," and on the other "so they need guns to protect themselves."Logic
Also didn't we just hear that guns aren't the problem? How can all those inner-city death statistics be at all accurate if they're using everyone's favorite violence placebo the harmless firearm? I bet they're hitting
each other with them.
Invocation of "of The People, By The People, For The People" while pointedly ignoring the power of firearms lobbies, check.
"Taking away the people's right to bear arms is taking away the people's power in government."
Ah, there it is. The reminder that if We don't have guns We can't control Our government.
My reactions: Coda; please, oh please
let's have our next Cliven Bundy soon. I'm well passed sick of hearing chicken-hawk cocksuckers talk about how badass they're gonna be when it's time to Fight The White House.
And is she going to enlist? Take that pretty face and those impressive shooting skills out to fight for those 2nd Amendment Rights she's so sure she can't live without?
Odds are 99/100 that she won't.
Edit: funny part is I don't oppose high schools having sport shooting for their students.
Can they do it safe? Yeah?
Coolio, go right ahead -it's a free country ...for now
