    Teen in the UK gets 16 years for buying a gun online

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2...h-mass-shootings-jailed-for-buying-gun-online

    Thank goodness they did not have to rely on a “good guy with a gun” (who can only stop a mass shooting after people have died).

    Apparently he was in possession of thousands of pages of material on mass shootings

    Give us a number.

    Kamala Harris threatened to murder Trump and Pence in an elevator. And your response is?

    Did she have a gun?

    Did she have thousands of pages about mass murder?

    No she didn't. You made that up. :bored:

    She DIDN'T "Threaten" anyone.

    It was a JOKE on the Ellen Show:

    “If you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” DeGeneres asked Harris during a series of random, mostly cheery questions she read from cards.

    Harris made a displeased face and asked Ellen, “Does one of us have to come out alive?”

    ___________

    Why does the RW feel it necessary to constantly MISCHARACTERIZE Events? :bored:

    Oh, all is forgiven, as long as you treat homicide like a joke...

    Are you really defending a racist murderous comment from a murderous racist? Why does she want to murder white people?

    He was obviously seen as a serious threat

    What else are you going to do - let him back out on the streets?

    Sounds like she considered suicide when faced with the thought of being trapped in an elevator with any of them.

    Really? Nothing in the linked article suggests as much. They allude to depression and autism, but then throw the book at him. This is what judicial activism looks like.

    You must be confused about who you were quoting. How do you feel about the hypocrite toting a gun? You 'forgot' to address that point.

    It seems that some folks have serious problems with freedom of the press.

    In Australia he could have joined a club and legally got a handgun, like any Australian citizen without a criminal record.

    Our system of controlled access, but access nonetheless, works.

    Exactly how many mass shootings with handguns have we had post-Port Arthur? About as many as the USA has had with licensed NFA weapons, including fully automatic machine guns and heavy artillery over the same period.

    He went before a court

    Don’t YOUR courts allow for defence?
