    Time for that family to invest in a secure RV! WOW! My parents switched from a tent to a metal pull-behind camper after a bear had made an appearance at their small overnight campsite many years ago while during their traveling and stops seeing a lot of different National parks. My parents didn't get hurt, but it scared them. You just never know when a wild animal (or a bad human) might attack.

    Banks are the first biggest crooks. Then, Insurance companies fall next in line. Health Insurance in this Country is deplorable compared to other Nations. Our Government is broken when it comes to looking out for its citizens. And yet the ignorant will say we are the greatest country in the world. But, you can't fix stupid!

    *OMG THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION MUST BE FURIOUS, a convicted fellon* was able to obtain this type of firepower!
    I'm sure they will do everything in their power to investigate just how this convicted fellon did it, what channels he used to obtain and store this type of dangerous firepower and do everything they can to make sure this never happens again!

    Trump is a "tool and dupe" of that nation. I got this from George Washington's Farewell address. Its so sad how an American president can turn his back on his own people for criticizing a Foreign nation.

Trying to scare you away from private insurance, they are the party of liers, remember for almost three years how they lied to you about that Russian Collusion, that's all that this is, get away from this fake news!

    Do they have Democrats running that city. If so arrest them, or at least check thier bank accounts. Your money for your pipes are probably in thier pockets. That's why all these Democrates, congressmen and senators are getting so rich! They are very crooked

      @Fernando alves Human beings inside of structures or tents are not any kind of prey a wolf would go after - even if hungry. Tearing into a tent and attacking a human is very unusual behavior. I hope he didn't have rabies. I guess they won't know for a couple of days as it takes that long to test the animal's brain tissue to find out.

      Not so strange if hunger is sufficient

    I can’t believe our president or any sitting leader would “tweet” anything like this. Wow. I’m speechless...literally. They’re members of Congress! Newark, why would anyone in a position to fix this care? It’s mostly African American and low income families. Right? “Maybe they’ll be forced to steal the water and then we can put them into our privatized prisons!” Sickening. Insurance IS a scam! I am a survivor of an active shooter now 35k and climbing in medical debt due to one of the bullets still in me, 130k in debt on the house I no longer can make mortgage payments on due to the barrage of medical bills. Now forced to start bankruptcy, never able to buy a house again. Medical insurance is a scam. A well thought out scam.

    Please get this straight...AK-47 IS A MILITARY ASSAULT RIFLE. It fires countless rounds as the trigger is held down. It is not "military style." It is military period. The AR15 can only shoot 1 bullet at a time up to 20 rounds. This is the gun we in wolf country like to have with us when surrounded by packs of up to 25-30 wolves. It is a popular back country rifle. It was not made for nor is it capable of being a "military" rifle. It is however "military style" which is a popular look in backpacks, camo clothing, tents, and outdoor gear in general. It's a popular look and the AR15 was designed with that in mind. It is not an "assault rifle" until a criminal puts black market illegal bump stocks on it making it capable of firing more rounds faster. Most of us would not even know how to go about getting our hands on those things to make those modifications...nor would 99.9% of us ever want to even in wolf country. We can't help it that the designers decided to give a "military style" look to an otherwise handy and popular back country rifle owned by boys, girls, men and women all over the US.

      @Greg p Yikes. Ok. I don't even want to know how. But thank you for letting me know. I had no idea. Just tired of the "military style" misleading statements. And I am a Christian Democrat! I care about our constitutional rights first. I hear what the far left is saying but I don't want a disinfo campaign effecting gun owners across the board. Urban Dems and rural Dems have a problem here.

    Trump appointed an oil Driller as head of EPA to break the protection our wildlife have had since 1973 - he wants to drill in our National Parks so soon there were be no wolves or other animals there and we’ll just have lots of oil wells to camp by. Support the environmental groups that are suing to prevent our beautiful wonders and wildlife from the Trump attack on pristine lands! We could lose otters, eagles, ferrets- even orcas- doe to “drill, baby, drill.” The EPA head should NOT be anti - environment!He won’t let rotect anything but frackers and drillers! Forget clean air and water!

    The mayor is the symptom of the institution of racism. He shouldn't never had those weapons because he's "black" not because he's a criminal. That's why they're eventually going to ban these weapons. Because they want them in only white people's possession lol. These weapons shouldn't br available period. To anyone regardless of skin tone.
