High gas prices are a global problem. This issue would be here if Trump, Biden, or anyone else would be in office. Is Biden doing great? Hell no. But his policies have no bearing of gad prices in Canada, Australia, or anywhere else. It still sucks either way

Honestly every advanced economy in the world currently is facing increased prices and inflation and I generally lean toward this being a global issue. Do I think the government could do better though? Absolutely but this is a situation that I do not think the blame can fall singularly on.

It’s singularly Bidens fault. Closing the pipeline caused speculators to purchase oil at a rate that outpaced demand. Now there is a supply issue. FJB and his family.

It absolutely can and does fall singularly on one person. That would be the fraudulent "president," #FJB. So you are miserably wrong.

Biden just ended gas and oil leases inside of the USA Today....

Zaos I still disagree with the pipeline due to its construction time, type of oil, and that it was more for export than import. On the cancelation though I concede the point cause I just saw the headline myself.

Justin just because I think differently than you does not mean I have no common sense the same way I could argue you don't have any for always blaming a singular person for your life's woes. Adults are able disagree on things. Going straight to calling someone dumb or senseless is childish

Biden cancelled the pipelines his first day. FJB and his whole family.

The pipeline itself would have had little to no impact on the price of gas due to not only the type of oil being pumped but also due to the fact that the oil was mostly slated for export and not domestic use. The pipeline would not even have been completed until at least next year at the best rate.

JH, you are incorrect. Let me put it to you simply, hopefully so you'll understand. Pipeline = more movement of oil that ends up at refineries. More oil at refineries = more supply of the gas you buy. More supply = lower prices. Get it?

JH
JH

Justin you seem to be skipping over A. the oil was mainly for export, B. the pipeline again at best wouldn't be done until sometime next year leaving prices now unchanged, and C. that the oil sands oil is more difficult to create into gas so it would mostly go to other sectors.

JH fails again, not understanding how incentives are a big driver of the free market. Let's try to tell JH another way. "What? #FJB stopped the pipeline? Forget investing the billions of $'s our company was going to spend on oil exploration. Bye bye, new jobs, greater supply and lower prices!"

JH

Ah yes Justin a singular pipeline while beneficial is going to make oil companies stop spending their money. Its not like they are already posting record breaking profits. Will closing it have influence yes but they are not going to stop everything they are doing.

Do you even need to ask? #FJB is responsible for the all-time high gas prices. People are PISSED at him!

Biden closing the pipeline caused speculators to purchase oil, depletion the supply while there was high demand. This is 100% Joe bidens fault. Singularly. FJB and his family.

The government is the problem. They printed trillions during COVID and disrupted the economy in their panic to "do something" when the best approach was to do very little. Luckily Nancy Pelosi has a solution for high gas prices - price controls. That will work. ROFLMAO at liberals. FJB.

This was created with Bidenomics and many other bad policies. Our current administration reminds me of The Scream by Edvard Munch.

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.

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.

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.

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.
