I’m just thinking how crazy it is Patrick Mahomes still hasn’t played a road playoff game. Five straight AFC Championship Games in Arrowhead. Just insane.— Mark Gunnels (@MarkAGunnels) May 5, 2023
And then there’s this…

excellent find, Sir … well done and you may double your volunteer salary (for this week only)
Dropped a stitch in today’s post, so here’s my amateur researcher:
It’s good to see you getting active again, BRaG!
i agree, nice to read your items
On Patrol Live is off to a great start.
Armed robbery in Daytona.
Yes but live and not as trashy.
Another shooting. Outside Dallas, this time.
Not to get political but it is the guns, it was always the guns.
I’m with you
easy access to AR pattern rifles can be fixed
*BRaGs head is prob exploding
should trans people not have gun because so many have mental issues?
why limit to trans?
that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?
depends on the issue, being trans shouldn’t count as one tho
says who? I agree, Trans people should be allowed to own guns. But what if Ron Desantis is in charge? What constitutes a mental illness and what doesn’t? Should everyone be required to undergo a pysch evaluation ? If so, who decides what is mentally ill?
he’s already banned DACA kids from ever practicing in FL, point taken
regardless of who you vote for, I don’t want some bureaucrat deciding if I can own a gun or not . Whether I am trans, MAGA, communist, alt right or whatever…. These labels can be easily abused in terms of what a mental illness is or not. Remember, the DSM 4 still labeled homosexuality as a mental illness
seems to me “wanting to shoot a whole bunch of people for no real reason” should qualify for “mentally ill” … regardless of what the DSM 4 says
after all, science is an ever-changing thing … and think about it: what’s the “federal classification” of Marijuana been for years and years and years (innocuous as it actually is, esp compared to Alcohol)
as for 2nd Amendment … nobody thought about “assault style” weapons way back when because they didn’t exist (of course at the time, only white men who owned land were actually allowed to own guns at all because nobody was very woke at the time)
“guns” aren’t “the issue” as much as “ridiculously unnecessary guns” are the issue (I have zero issue with ANYONE who wants to own a musket and go hunting … none whatsoever!)
I stand with Alexander Hamilton!!!
wow… I agree with this statement
after all, science is an ever-changing thing … and think about it: what’s the “federal classification” of Marijuana been for years and years and years (innocuous as it actually is, esp compared to Alcohol
Because the left says science is concrete so long as it agrees with our POV’
Happy you made that concession
not at all a “concession” … just the way things are: things CHANGE (evolve) and that includes Humanity itself (for better of for worse)
Science is … Science
sadly, science / technology have given us insane weapons that we (Mankind) doesn’t really need but has anyway … personally I don’t see that as a particularly “good” thing
and as I stated: guns in and of themselves aren’t the specific problem here as much as “specific types of guns” (in my personal perspective)
as for gayness being a “mental illness” that’s BS (one of my nephews is gay, he is not mentally ill)
You are strawmaning me . YES being gay is NOT a mental illness! We agree. HOWEVER, ”science” up until 1960’s said it was. Ergo,, science is malleable according to who controls the zeitgeist
no … science is and has always been an ever-changing thing, that’s the nature of science: yo a flat-earther?)
what you’re talking about is more “political” … it’s not what science is, it’s how science (or lack thereof) is perceived (big difference)
K…..where is our disagreement??
maybe cuz I think “assault style” weapons should be banned from being owned by the “general public” … along with tactical gear, etc (if you wanna play “army boy” go join the army
everyone else single shot weapons, period
Maybe humans shouldn’t be allowed to have weapons because of all the mental issues.
Fine. If we have two thirds of congress democratically elected by the people that want to repeal the second amendment, go for it. Just don’t give me this bogus/fake mental illness jargon as far as who can’t own a firearm
course, if DeSantis was “in charge” he’d just have “his legislature” change whatever law(s) he didn’t like and be done with it, doncha know
Again you are (unironically) making my point Doncha know cutie pants 😉
oooooooooooooooooooooooh “cutie pants” … yer just ever so sweet and I could just PINCH you
If you pinch another mans man tits.. is that assault? Something to ponder
now, now … was just gonna pinch your cheeks (grampa style, I’m old yanno)
well i have tits so it sucks
he wanted to say more, but he had some bacon to cook …
It’s not guns, its the people… guns have been around for centuries, but only our new ” society” has figured out how to turn them loose for this nonsense.. no one is responsible for their actions anymore, so they do whatever they want. violent criminal – let em loose. blame the guns. mental issues – let em go to consoling… no need to keep an eye on them. yup. its an inanimate object’s fault. bullshit. Anyone ever think it might be the person pulling the trigger? Good night y’all.
thr proliferation of semi auto rifles has nothing to do with it?
Nothing I love more than a good rant and run
If people are the problem and not guns, why would you let the problem have guns?
hey Saints, I used your rant on UDFA’s last night in todays Morning Huddle. Check it out
A valid question
how DARE pam be all logical and shit! 😉
and YOU, young man … WAKE UP (saw the Sci Sat comments where Team Player hadda straighten you out 😉
