    Assault weapons DO have a legitimate use. In the military… during a war.

    Ted, you want MORE guns, just like other gun violence advocates?

    And a lot of them could be coming back, used by Americans who REALLY don’t like the Democrats, or anyone on the left, or LGBT, or African Americans, or anybody else who isn’t “white” (i.e. of European descent), or isn’t Christian, or…

    He is making a good point here. Guns/weapons can last forever and the ones we send abroad can and have been used against us later on. In the case of Ukraine I feel sending arms to them is something we must do, I view Putin as one tiny step below Hitler and it’s a very tiny step.

    Yes, Ted, getting rid of guns here in the U.S. is an effective solution to our now constant shootings. Does adding a ‘whataboutism’ somehow justify our country’s gun worshiping, ammosexual behavior?

    I’m glad Ted is around. With him on one end and Henry Payne on the other I realize that there really still is a middle in American politics.

    “Wars end. Guns are forever”. So why did the Clinton Administration force the Ukraine to give up its nuclear weapons in 1994? Had they not done so, the Ukrainians would have been able to deter the current aggression by Russia. There would now be peace, you see.

    The Mexican government understands the problem — and is why they are suing U.S. gun manufacturers.

    I get the anti-gun message, but would it hurt you to get the facts right? AK-47s are Russian and Chinese weapons. If you’re talking about the USA, the weapon is the M16.

    Collect all the AR-15s in the USA and send them to Ukraine.

    And Ted continues his inexplicable campaign against helping Ukrainians to defeat Putin’s effort to reestablish the USSR under a different name.

    So the Ukrainians, who were minding their own business, should just roll over, Ted? And we should watch them be slaughtered and enslaved?

    Back in the day people asked what would happen if they declared war and no one showed up. Probably the same thing if no one armed them.

    To Everyone. If you want to learn a little about internationl arms sales, there is a book by a greatly respected, and thorough-invesigative author, William Manchester, titled “The Arms of Krupp” I think it is still in print, but it can be found in used-book stores for a few dollars.. The paperback book is a very thick tome, covering briefly how the Krupp family made pikes and cannon balls for Kings & Dukes during the 1600’s up to the “Big Bertha” massive mortar in 1914, Paris Gun in 1918 and the dreaded Tiger of 1943. Throughout this saga, Manchester writes often about how Krupp, Vickers-Armstrong (Britain) and Schneider (France) competed with one another selling cannon to South American rivals, China and Japan. When German troops sailed up the river to join other Allies in supressing the Boxer rebellion, they came under heavy, accurate gunfire from Chinese gunners in their forts. When German marines landed, scaled the heights & took the fort, they found the guns that were shooting at them, labeled AG KRUPP, Essen Ger.! In 1940, as German naval ships sailed up the fjord toward Oslo (Norway) , supposedly obsolete 10" Krupp guns blew up a heavey cruiser and caused the fleet to withdraw. Many more such stories, one of which is actually humorous. A good read!

    This actually looks like a pretty good idea. Of course, a (hopefully) post-war independent Ukraine would then have the problem of regulating all those weapons, but it could probably have more success than America has had.

    Mass shootings are God’s punishment for America being the world’s leading exporter of weapons of death………………….or it would be if god actually exists.
