Oh wait Andrew C August 8, 2019 at 4:33 pm I’ve said it many times. Guns don’t kill people. Bullets do. Unless you’re using the gun as a club. But then you might as well have a club. Andrew C August 8, 2019 at 4:44 pm “Interested Another white supremacist following Trump’s dogwhistle I assume. Oh wait” There was a TV skit, can’t remember where from, in which black cab drivers* were asked to navigate from a given subject to “I blame them immigrants” or some such. It’s the same with the left. White man shoots Hispanics: Trump whips up anti-immigrant feelings – Trump’s fault. Hispanic man stabs Hispanic: – Hispanic man – obviously made poor and desperate by Trump’s economic policies, – backed into a corner no money to leave the area he’s in – last resort – no hope – Trump’s fault. They should turn it into a game. “Trump’s fault”. e.g. Can you get from “A waiter in Stockholm drops a tray of pastries” to “Trump’s fault” in four or fewer trite cliches. *that’s a driver of black cabs. Dennis the Peasant August 8, 2019 at 4:50 pm Nothing there for any of you play Political Gotcha with, but I you’re going to do it anyway. You guys never disappoint, unfortunately. Take care not to trip over the bodies of the unburied innocents. TomJ August 8, 2019 at 5:16 pm Guns don’t kill people. Bullets do. Unless you’re using the gun as a club. But then you might as well have a club. Or the gun’s fitted with a bayonet… I sneeze in threes August 8, 2019 at 5:48 pm Andrew C your game could be called Trumpington Crescent. Bloke on M4 August 8, 2019 at 6:08 pm How is murder ever not a hate crime? Jim August 8, 2019 at 6:14 pm “How is murder ever not a hate crime?” Didn’t you get the memo? Having a knife shoved in your guts is fine if its just because the poor socially excluded mugger needs your wallet more than you do. In fact its probably an act of self defence, because by refusing to give your money to a person in need you were in fact assaulting him first. Penseivat August 8, 2019 at 7:40 pm Apparently the carnage began after the offender left a 7-11 store, so I do think that all of these stores should be closed down to prevent repeat offences. No doubt someone will discover that Trump has shares in the parent company, so it’s alll his fault. Mr Ecks August 8, 2019 at 7:53 pm DtP–The comments above yours were–obviously to anyone not lacking even the slightest sense of humour or irony–mocking Trump’s leftist foes and their leftist gun-control bullshit not Trump. His red-flag malarkey is a bad idea–seemingly from Trump’s new fairweather friend Lyndsey Graham–a dodgy character right down to his name. The Donald should dump it and decide that “civils shoot back” is his new plan. Steve August 8, 2019 at 7:56 pm Dennis – stop anthropomorphising Mexicans, bigot. Dennis, Confuser of the Dim August 8, 2019 at 8:27 pm Ecks – Yes, it was obvious. That’s why I said what I said. Gamecock August 8, 2019 at 10:37 pm Cos “hate crime” is CM bolshit. Pcar August 9, 2019 at 1:58 am Toronto doesn’t have a gun problem, it has a gang problem Once again it’s criminals not obeying law. Politicians know more laws and restrictions won’t change that, but want to be seen as doing something – solving problem irrelevant. Interested August 9, 2019 at 1:26 pm I go away to hot and sandy climes for a couple of months doing a bit of this and that and I get back and I find Dennis still talking utter horseshit.
