There are second amendment remedies available to cure this epidemic, but the liberals would rather bend over and be victims. It’s what they do. Luckily, President Trump has put together a Supreme Court that will restore our right to defend ourselves.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
A shooting happens "Give everyone guns", motorists killing pedestrians and cyclists almost daily "Cyclists and pedestrians should be more careful". That's the level if idiocy in fake Henry's garbled logic.
