Ghetto retards with no chance of ever becoming useful to society. I’ve been in North Philly and Chester numerous times. These “people” are never going to change and are complete trash.
Almost everyone in our small town owns guns, no “gun violence” here. I think urban cultures real problem is “gang violence.”
Those guns now have artificial intelligence and figure out how to kill—who knew?
But..but...that's why we need to give up OUR guns
50,000,000 dead children in America. Killing kids has become socially acceptable and women led us here.
I see your point.
You are correct. :)
Amazing how inanimate objects can cause havoc and misery all by their lonely selves.
there's a diffence between what most of us consider "children" and the "children" involved in these shootings..
not that's its right, but its the truth....
Nobody talks about gang violence anymore. It’s all caused by the guns now.
"Is there anything we're overlooking?"
Isn’t that that the truth. Hardcore teenage rapster gangbangers shooting each other with guns owned illegally and they blame it on your average law abiding gun owner. No “teens” around here shooting anyone. Just playing football and fishing for trout.
Fighting back with what? Guns? They are wild and no compass in life. They should be forced into military service to get some direction...and free guns.
They’re not killed by “violence” — they’re killed by people with no self control and a huge sense of entitlement. Usually raised by single mothers. They are one reason why conservatives need their guns.
The funny thing is - there’s zero need for anyone to get involved in any kind of social or political movement. All they have to do is provide information to the cops. Shootings in black areas go unpunished because nobody saw anything, even though they occur in busy urban environments.
Does the article ever actually say what has "become socially acceptable?"
The excerpt posted here doesn't give a clue.
Gun violence. Like guns are violent. The left is retarded
N Phila is rough. We used to like manayunk and south street
