Firearms are the leading cause of death for American children.

No other peer country has that distinction. 

And Americans are okay with that.

(PS. Drag queen shows are not included in the causes of childhood and teen death rates, yet MAGA governors are falling over themselves writing legislation to ban them.  We are a stupid country.)

I read that joey b is going to strengthen gun background checks and gun storage requirements. Someday the politicians will quit praying to the NRA and require a license to own a firearm. You have a license to drive, fly but not to own another deadly item like a gun. All guns should be kept in a lock box which would deter children from using them. One problem we have is dumb parents but that is universal across all political and racial lines.

These parents, lacking the awareness and intelligence the creator gave them, do not deserve the right to own firearms or to be parents.

As well as libertarians, conservatives and republicans, in their ignorance and stupidity relative to the purposes of firearm regulation and control, ought not to have the right to vote on legislation relative to firearms.

And finally, the criminal NRA, which rightfully ought to be classified as a terrorist organization, should be shut down by the government. After being fined millions of dollars for the damage to this nation's pysche.
