Repeal the 2nd ammendment. The US has the 2nd highest gun death total in the world. Ban ALL semi and fully automatic weapons. Nobody needs them. Minimum age should be 28. Have 1 pistol and 1 gun for hunting. More guns = more deaths and more violence.

Check Wikipedia, actually we are 16th, but you have never been correct or honest before.

Ok ok...Wikipedia. The trusted internet source. Highest gun related deaths in high income countries. The US is by far the highest rated https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_rate

Switzerland, UK, Australia, and Canada have enacted gun reforms of some sort. Since then, the firearm death rate in the US was 4 times higher than Switzerland, 5 times higher than Canada, 10 times higher than Australia, and 35 times higher than the UK.

You do realize that if you file down the firing pin a certain amount, that you can turn any semi automatic weapon into an automatic? You can repel the 2nd Admin., but you will never get rid of guns in this country. Besides, you can buy one in any City for pennies on the dollar, any day of the year.

I agree sir who needs more than one gun and one rifle for hunting?

If you know someone has guns and is making threats on social media etc., then they should have their weapons taken away for the safety of everyone.

Would this apply to other items that could be used as a weapon, like cars, knives, axes, poison, or matches?

There are already existing laws that address the scenario you describe. So, your reasoning for passing additional laws is flawed. Come on, be better than that.

No, because then anyone could lie and make up a reason to get someone's guns taken away from them.

No. Enforce existing common-sense laws first, instead of creating new ones. Liberals love to pass stupid laws that do nothing to make life better for the public, only suppress freedom. Screw #FJB, his fraudulent administration and any narrow-minded idiot who voted for him.

Although the Constitution of the United States does not cite it explicitly, presumption of innocence is widely held to follow from the Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments.

This violates the Constitution.

Because you can buy a gun in just about any city for pennies on the dollar if you know where to look. No matter what law you pass, guns for evil will always be available. That is the only "Red Flag" that will always exist.

The democrats are milking a dry cow on this event. They are pushing away more people with this Schiff Show, than they are pulling in.

Religious freedom is a foundational principle for the USA. Constitutional interpretation of that right of freedom of expression is monumental. Tebow was condemned for yrs for praying on the field, lost QB opps for that reason. Christian religious persecution is rampant & . SCOTUS defended. Awesome!

Your point about Christian prosecution by the left and their minions is absolutely true. It needs to be called out and defended against at every opportunity. The silent majority can be silent no longer. Good people have been silent and done nothing for far too long. We need to fight back now.

I'm glad this man stood up and won his case. He wasn't demanding or even asking his students/players to join him. He wasn't pushing his religious beliefs down anyone's throats.

It not only should be allowed. The SCOTUS just ruled it was protected. So yes, it IS allowed. Case closed.

If they allow this, they will soon allow Drag Queen Story Time for K through grade 3. There used to be be 26 letters in the alphabet, now there are 62 genders in the alphabet. That is just another religion.

As long as players and staff are not expected to take part if they don't want to. Religious freedom works both ways. If anyone is forced to 'pray' there's a problem.

Prayer should not be coerced. If one or more people want to join someone in praying, that's their right.

No one said coerced, just being allowed, so I am sure you’re allowed not to if you choose.

This is a constitution defended right. He is not establishing a religion for the school nor forcing participation. That is simply the free exercise guaranteed by the constitution. It's insane that this wasn't a unanimous decision! Free exercise is being trampled on, crazy it went this far!

Silent prayer at school is different than the government establishing religion. Libs sure are losing in court a lot these days: RvW, NY gun laws, NY City vote for illegal aliens, and now prayer in school. Trump packing the courts with conservative judges will bear fruit for decades to come. FJB

I can't wait to start my satanic worship group at the next school sponsored sporting event. Prayer ain't just for Christians you know? While we're at it, let's give space to our Muslim brothers and sisters for their prayer. This is great!

In a public school, there are various religious groups in one building. If there was a teacher or coach praying in front of their student there is a major possibility that that teacher or coach will shove their religious beliefs down another students throat. It’s fine to pray on their own time.

Incorrect. That is an obtuse assumption.
