    discussion because you'd be able to prove what I've presented is nonsense, you haven't.

    People are conditioned into accepting violence as a "legitimate" solution.  From men shooting children over loud music to maniacs gunning down unarmed men after following them for blocks.

    They use the same defense our government uses when it commits war crimes and intentionally undermines legitimate foreign nations..."self defense".

    That violence permeates everything in this nation.  Is it any wonder children kill their siblings while "pretending" they are Wrestle Mania actors?  To kids thinking it's funny to set puppies on fire to girls cooking kittens alive.

    That inundation of violence diminishes us all.  It dehumanizes us into the most vile acts.  And all you can come up with is "it's an NRA talking point"?

    Keep telling yourself that so that you can sleep well at night, I don't believe you.

      of the nonsense that "what is presented" is nonsense.

      You argue that violence permeates everything in this nation, then tell us that gun control is criminalizing us all.

      Your ranting comments are the definition of nonsense.

      You said yourself that there is no conversation here.  That's as much your fault as anyone else's.

        guns are the cause of the violence we have.

        It's a symptom caused by years of republicanism.   And what I said was that criminalizing everything doesn't address the problem.  It becomes a problem unto itself with recidivism.  The dehumanization continues in prison creating an ever more violent society, a self-feeding cycle that perpetuates the Prison Industrial Complex.

        This is the second time today you've failed at reading comprehension.  Is it a hobby of yours to create straw arguments and intentionally misrepresent what others say so that you can convince yourself of your moral superiority?

        If so, it's not working.  Let's try to solve these problems together.  What do you suggest as a solution now that gun control is off the table?

        Will you waste another six months feigning indignation and thrashing your teeth or will we try to work together to actually help each other again?

        If this is nonsense, I'll end this conversation with you for good.  Please don't waste any more of my time if you aren't serious about addressing the things we can change, right now.

        •  Why would I want to solve problems together (0+ / 0-)

          with someone who continually insults me?  My reading comprehension is well above average and I have never asserted my "moral superiority".

          Are you delusional?  You are the angriest person I have ever met who advocates for non-violence and peaceful solutions.

          All you have to do in order me to stop "wasting your time" is stop responding to me. Your need to have the final word makes this "conversation" possible.
