I can still get it even though I've had the vaccine. I personally don't care if I get it, but I'd be damned if I spread it to someone and they spread it to one of their elderly family members or young child!

I’d rather be extra cautious than sick. We are vaccinated but as we learned, you can still get COVID when you are vaxxed but won’t end up in the hospital. It still is a horrible experience

Just look at our hospitals. Do you want them to be there if you need them? Or, should they be full of people that had a 99.7% chance of not being there by getting a free shot. It simply speaks for the fact that our education systems fail to teach us to think for ourselves.

All of you anti vaxxers and anti maskers, you feel the same way about seatbelts?

As a front line caregiver I remain astounded by the ability of this virus to outwit us at every turn. Despite abysmal national leadership from the get go, we did a stellar job in Oregon in keeping it at bay, but allowing it to spread nationally created the far less forgiving variants.

Done all I can do, got the shots, avoid prolonged close contact with the public and if I happen to get it, I just get it. It is just another of the growing number of deadly threats one collects as we get older. And as a 70+ I have a lot of them, but worrying about them isn't one of them.

Does anyone want to explain how they know that the Delta variant is more contagious when they only have one generic test that test for covid or no covid. They aren't testing for different strands. Someone explain this.

I assume the tests are not free to anyone. I assume only those who have been exposed are being tested. Of those only 4.1% are positive so in other words 95.9 percent of those exposed become infected and some of those have been vaccinated. So what the heck is all the clamor to get vaccinated about?

Its just a gimmick. Like using the term new and improved to relabel a product. People are fed up with hearing about COVID and are starting to tern a deaf ear to it. This "Delta" is just a gimmick to try and get them to listen again. But people are not buying it.

I am not concerned about the Delta variant. How many variants have we had now? There have been 11 so far. I am worried about the future variant that becomes far more deadly than any so far. Will those responsible for the death of millions be held accountable?

75% of the time we stay in our part of town. We do go downtown since we have a wider selection there but it is not as convenient.

Assault Rifles are already banned . . . as they should be! Or at least they should require special (stamp) permits at federal and state levels, as it already is. Now if you're asking if semi-auto sporting rifles should be banned, the answer is NO!

Armed forces should be the only ones allowed to have assault rifles. They are for one thing only: to kill humans. Hunters don't use them, and they are not needed for self protection unless you are in the middle of a war where there are several people that want to take your life.

There is absolutely no reason for assault rifles to be as readily available as they are. I support our rights as a gun owner myself, but this type of weapon is simply unnecessary. In light of the violence in our country, they should only be accessible in a controlled environment.

Why should anyone besides law enforcement need to own or have them? They can not be used for hunting purposes or any thing else. Why use them to kill children and anyone for that matter!! What has this world came too?

Certain types of guns have no purpose other than the mass killing of other human beings. You don't need an assault rifle to kill deer or protect your property. I don't think all guns should be banned as they can be used for hunting or protecting your property. But we do need more mental healthcare

The 2nd Amendment was not about hunting, it was specifically to keep any despotic power in check... to protect the rights of American citizens against enemies foreign and domestic. See Australian COVID lockdowns from last year, that is why we need semi-auto rifles (they are not assault rifles)

Guns don't kill people? By that logic, neither do nuclear weapons. Maybe one will randomly fall from the sky in the general vicinity of Congress so the new congress might FINALLY do something

Of course, you could always be attacked by a vicious herd of deer. And what else could the biggest cowards hide behind? Maybe the deaths of the innocents is less important than fear of the emasculated.

I just do not see the need to own a assault rifle. I’m all for self defense and hunting but those automatic weapons are for military use. Imo.

1st of all, an ignorant titled thread. These are not "assault rifles", these are semi-auto sporting rifles. 2nd, after the BLM/Floyd riots, and Australian COVID lockdowns, the need for full 2nd Amendment protection has never been so important.

Deaths by all rifles are a tiny % of firearm-related deaths in this country, and mass shootings account for .5% of homicides. I'm opposed to stripping away gun ownership rights of law-abiding citizens, while turning a blind eye to the thousands who die in Democrat-run cities from their policies.
