1. Concealed carry for every law abiding, willing, able, sane American citizen, 21 years of age or older...anywhere, anytime.

2. Institutionalize / lock up the nutjobs.

>>2. Institutionalize / lock up the nutjobs.

Be careful what you wish for. That means all your sons who get diagnosed with ADD/ADHD/Autism or whatever Big Education uses these days to drug our boys so they behave like girls in the classroom.

Bring back mandatory PE and coaches who yell at you. Let boys fight. End helicopter parenting. Marry before sex and stay married after children. All this will go away in a generation. There’s nothing we can do for the Millennials-except to put them down humanely.

“Agree, disagree, or agree to disagree. But on this one point, most Americans should find common ground. Chris Mintz deserves every bit of financial support we can give him.

He deserves it because he sacrificed himself for the good of others. He deserves it because he was injured in ways mentally and physically that are likely to follow him around the rest of his life as a result of this incident. He deserves it because he reminds us all not to be afraid in the face of evil, but to confront it head-on. He deserves it because he has reminded us, at a critical time in our history, that it’s still possible to favor life and honor and respect and dignity over whatever it is that divides us.”

IS there ANY REPUBLICAN who is standing up right now to call out POTUS on his lies??? Any Republican standing up right now who will push for National Right to Conceal Carry???

Why is it that Republicans allow the left to just spew out their propaganda after this kind of tragedy, but they do NOTHING to educate voters about our RIGHTS???

Why let OBAMA just go unanswered?? CMON for F’s sake GOP

Wasn’t implying that he didn’t deserve the reward just that as students the medical costs would be overwhelming for most if not all of the victims.

He deserves as much as a greatful nation can raise

That wasn’t directed at you. You just happened to be who I replied to..and yes, I hope all of them have insurance.

Or that the college has some kind of liability insurance that covers it.
