Re: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise + 2 cops + aides (?) reportedly shot

The only thing we're really gonna learn from this is that even when Republican Congressmen are the personal targets of gun violence, they're not going to do a damn thing about it except take more money from the NRA to quash any possible legislation that might come up.

Which if you think about it, at this point the Republican commitment to nihilism is actually pretty impressive.

Yeah. They're willing to die to maintain their commitment to completely unfettered gun access. Sometimes we get cynical and pretend the Republicans have no principles but this is a great test for them. I have no doubt they will come through and insist not a single gun is ever grabbed.

I read "home inspection business" which I think is basically code for local tradesman who works in the gig economy.

Trump to make a statement momentarily. Let's see if he wants to arm the players like he wanted to arm the dancers at the Pulse.

Nothing you can do about these violent Bernie Bros folks. Although, the 2nd Amendment people - maybe there is I don't know.

This will be an easy push to treat mental illness once liberalism gets classified as such.

It's one of the better careers for guys who failed as contractors. Many others who fail just end up wearing an orange smock for $11.25/hr.

Is it really unfortunate that the guy is a Berniecrat? Gun violence can be perpetrated by anybody, and conservatives aren't any more bulletproof than the rest of us.



But seriously, there's a reason people generally don't advocate for gun control based on party affiliation, as opposed to universal controls for everyone. I'm sure Chicago and LA gangs aren't full of Christian white boys.

Semi-retired construction dudes do this all the time. You just become a consultant on construction projects etc. and pick up a few bucks here and there.
