I have been around the world in 2020 and have done some travel in 2021. The research about mask being affective agents viruses all state it is not ment to protect or used for reducing the infection of any viruses. It's also not right to treat kids/people as if they are sick when they are not. Period

Parents should make this decision, not school boards.

Since the mandate is not supported scientifically... CDC has never been able provide peer reviewed studies supporting their recommendation that haven't been soundly refuted by the medical community... then masking should entirely be a parental choice.

I feel that it infringes on our basic rights and is in direct violation of The American with Disabilities Act.

This is a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money and a slap in the face for all our hard working healthcare workers.

The Attorny General is on the wrong side of science and wants to unnecessarily expose children to disease. He is truly an embarrassment to the state.

I have a grandchild in school. I think masking helps keep her and others safer than no mask mandate, and it may help keep students in the classroom, learning in person rather than remotely.

The AG should be disbarred... playing politics with public health for his own selfish gains. Our Healthcare system struggling to keep up with covid and this jack ass doesn't care if a human being needs real Healthcare in an emergency like a car accident or a stroke, heart attack. What selfishness.

1. Quarantines will increase once the mask mandate goes away this was proven in summer school. 2.Entrapment lawsuits later for students not being in school. 3.Child endangerment. 4.Kids in school with good educators is the goal. 5.More leave=less resources=less quality=lower standards=NCLBA failed.

I believe all children should be vaccinated before going with no mask. This is a catastrophic disease and they should be protected by mask. Attorney general needs to stay out of all schools policy and let them decide whats best.

Each school district should be able to make decisions based on the best interests of their students and their community as they battle Covid-19 and the Delta variant. With things changing on a daily basis one blanket mandate for the entire state cannot be affective. Residents know best not the AG.

Any possible precaution to keep our children safe should be required. It's absolutely ridiculous what AG is doing.

I voted for this side due to the fact that way too many individuals are allowed to purchase/possess firearms when they have no legal right; nor ability; to do so.

People who have no legal right to possess firearms can not pass a background check. ATF Form 4473 - Firearms Transaction Record Revisions. Please educate yourself.

Schumer blocks Senate GOP school safety bill. Democrats don't want laws that work, they want death and mayhem.

That should have been done after the Sandy Hook tragedy. Also, limit the age when a person can buy a gun. No sales of assault weapons to anyone under 25 and then with a thorough background check. Stop the killing of innocent children.

There is no such thing as an assault weapon. Assault is a physical attack, performed by a person or an animal. A weapon used, is only a tool being used in the physical attack. That could even be a pillow used to smother someone. Do you have assault pillows in your home? Please educate yourself.

What a foolish, arbitrary thing to say, Bonnie. Age 25? Why 25? What makes that the magical age when someone is suddenly responsible enough to buy a particular type of firearm? Go back to bed, Bonnie.

I had already served six years in the U S Navy when I turned 25. Your reasoning is less than that of a child.

Assault weapons are already banned. These automatic weapons are for military use only.. Democrats want to ban semi-automatic weapons, but like to call them assault weapons because it sounds more deadly. In truth, they consider any weapon that will have an automatic reload to be an assault weapon.

Funny how quick they are to protect the lives of embryos because "life matters" yet 10 year olds get slaughtered by an 18 year old that can buy guns and it's political. Disgusting yet predictable hypocrisy among conservatives

Does anybody actually think this would stop the nightly shootings, by felons in Columbia using stolen forearms? No, I don't think so either. People who legally purchase firearms, are not the people committing crimes with firearms. Why not start holding the criminals responsible?

Hunter Biden purchased a firearm via background check, before promptly tossing in a dumpster near a public school. So....

I don't trust the people pushing for more gun control. They just want to take all guns away from citizens in an incremental approach, one tiny step at a time. They need to be stopped now so I am opposed to all control efforts. I vote and I donate money to Republican candidates who think like me.

This is nothing more than a political grandstand in an effort to win votes. The bill will do little to stem violence and is only for politicians to use at election time. The Democrats are taking a tragedy and using it to get their agenda passed without any proof the bill would make a difference.

Yes, the Dems are acting true to form, untrustworthy and immoral. The only change they make, is for the worse.
