Cheers Daley, yes that's the one I meant. The scary thing is that the gun deaths only cover 47 years, the war ones 242.

If the figures could be obtained for gun deaths 1775-1968, God knows how many that would be

The man who wrote the anti-trans bathroom bill just lost the election to a trans woman. Let that sink in.

This isn't the first time - there seems to be a pattern emerging:

Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 16 hours ago
Ralph Northam will allow crime to be rampant in Virginia. He’s weak on crime, weak on our GREAT VETS, Anti-Second Amendment and has been horrible on Virginia economy. Vote @EdWGillespie today!
Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 16 hours ago
@EdWGillespie will totally turn around the high crime and poor economic performance of VA. MS-13 and crime will be gone. Vote today, ASAP!


Trump endorsements count for fuck all. Evenier funnier because not that long ago he claimed someone was "begging him for an endorsement".



Then when his endorsement fails, he quickly disowns them:
Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 16 hours ago
Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!

They'd ban schools before they banned guns.

There's obviously no way for this to go horribly wrong:
New Wisconsin law allows toddlers to operate firearms

Wisconsin’s nine-day gun deer hunting season starts this weekend, and this year, for the first time, children of any age will be able to hunt with a firearm while accompanied by an adult. Last Saturday, Gov. Scott Walker quietly signed into law a bill that lifted age and firearm restrictions on adults hunting with small children.

In Wisconsin, hunters need to be at least 14 years old and pass a hunter’s safety class to hunt alone, but the state’s mentoring program allowed children 10 and up to hunt with an adult. The new law eliminates this age restriction, as well as lifts a ban on hunters carrying multiple firearms when they’re hunting with children.

Licences for the children now able to hunt under the new law went on sale Monday, making Wisconsin the 35th state to have no minimum hunting age.
