I think the general problem at the end of this mess for these political folks...is that fifty percent of all Democrats own guns as well. You can’t be a Democrat, live in Detroit, and not own a gun....that’s a simple fact. The same is likely true in East St Louis, Memphis, and New Orleans.

At some point, there will be some realization of Democrats falling against the pattern, and this will all quiet down quickly.

And I would add this little comment....if you said universal background checks were such a good idea, then they ought to be done when you open bank accounts, ask for new credit cards, and register to vote as well....then things would get quiet and it’d stop real quick.
