    It is time that we have a memorial built to remember all the victims of domestic terrorism and mass shootings, least we move all of our fallen too quickly to memory. The impact of such a memorial might move us as a country to reasonable action.

    All these white boys smile and put on a "mentally ill" look for the cameras. Isn't that what everyone is supposed to say? Oh, he was mentally ill, that's why he shot up Jews. Yea right. It's called premeditation and these white Nazis know precisely what they're doing.

    I would be fired if I worked at a gun shop. If a young man wanted to buy several high power military style weapons, plus unlimited ammunitions. Red flags would ring up all over my head, telling my boss I don't think we should sell this weapons to this guy. I can see my boss telling me, "it's not your job to question his motives, that's lost profit for our business". I tell him, "I'm refuse to sell it to him". He tells me, "Your fired".😒

      High powered military style weapons? You know that a hunting rifle can shoot larger bullets than most “military style weapons”, and also what makes a gun military style? Metal?

    Really? Look at this joker, this actor, smiling for his mug shot... who does that? He also looks possibly jewish. Does he know an "inside joke" we aren't supposed to know about? His duping delight smile indicates it. It's fake and staged. Who benefits from this? The corrupt, corporate government. They'll use this to justify "pre-crime" (thought-crime) legislation that will effectively destroy what's left of the first and second amendments.

      Go tell that to the jewish supremacists! We all know what happened in the Soviet Union... 60 million dead Russians, mostly White Russians. The jews ran the genocidal Soviet Empire. And now they have come here to try to do the same thing. Be careful what you wish for! You're probably on their death list too, unless you're a jew who follows the Talmud (not even the Torah) or a Freemason stooge.

      Trumpstein was never going to build the wall in the first place. No US ZOG president will and a wall should have been built when Reagan was president. They won't because the banksters don't want them to. They want to move people from one nation to another like money.

      @Poop Brain Yes,but the lunatic democrats desperate for a talking points" pass some more gun laws" have been beating to death passing red flag laws when in fact we already have the ability to call and report someone who is a threat. The red flag laws would allow anyone to report anyone as a threat and have their guns taken which is their real goal.

    I'm a white man and it's frustrated to see other whites doing this. Most of these people aren't mentally ill, just weak and wanting to lash out. They can't deal with their problems and so they think a gun is the answer. That's weakness.

    • David VR

      I'm ashamed that we have open avowed socialist running for president and even being given a chance to win. It's disgraceful and anti-American to even consider such non-sense. Every democrat running is for: open borders, government re-distribution of the wealth, job killing high taxes, giving free social services to illegals who sneak into our country.

    They should compile all these videos and show them to the President, FOXNEWS(Tucker Carlson, Ingraham Sean Hannity and the Republicans) that these threats are not hoax but real. The next thing you'll hear as an excuse from the President, NRA, some Republicans and FOXNEWS is that all these people have mental problems. Gosh!!! God please come save America. Just so you anyone who read my post know. I AM NOT A DEMOCRAT, I happen to have conservative views and believe in humanity, but hating immigrants or none white people is not conservative.
    One of the past beloved Republican President Ranold Reagan was adored as the "perfect" spotless President but recently an audio surfaced with him and President Nixon spewing racism and racial slurs at Blacks and black African leaders. Point is they all profess they are not racist including the sitting President but only God fetch them out. By the to white Americans being a Republican or conservative is does not make you a Christian or give a pass to heaven so get ready to be judged like anyone else.

    • Gentleman Yeboah

      @William Anthony no pun intended but you certainly do not know what you talking about and there's no need to argue or go further with this, let's leave it here. But I hope and pray to God that with the nonsense going on in the world now but more so here in the States it does not affect you in anyway

    • William Anthony

      Gentleman Yeboah- Reagan referring to those leaders as monkeys wasn't racist in the way the news media wants you to believe it was. The word monkey had a different meaning to a man in Reagan's age bracket. The word evolved into something different over time, but it bridged different generations who thought of the term in completely different ways. It's like when Howard Cosell, one of the least prejudiced men in the sports world exclaimed: "Look at that little monkey run!" He never really recovered from that remark, and ended up retiring.
      It's not that words don't matter, but the meanings of some words really do change over time. Would Reagan's moronic daughter be apologizing for something she KNOWS is UNTRUE about her father, if he'd used the term "squirrelly" instead? I think not.
      We're quick to point fingers without a great deal of thought about who we're accusing of what. It's like a modern day witch hunt. Like all witch hunts, however, the consequences will eventually come back to haunt us.

      It's a government setup- problem, reaction, solution. They create these "mass shooting" hoaxes and then say they'll prevent "mass shooters" by launching "pre-crime" (thought-crime) legislation. It's goal is to eventually completely destroy what's left of our first and second amendments.

      This smiling guy is an actor. It's staged. Don't fall for it. The recent "mass shootings" are hoaxes with more holes in them than Swiss cheese. It's utterly ridiculous. Btw, you'll have as much success declaring war on "racism" as the US government has with the "war on terror". Yet, terror and war only increased. Funny how that works. What's next, declare war on death? Or against Nature? Good luck.
