• Almost everyone of the Democratic candidates this election season have said they will ban all guns. I don’t think all leftist voters want this but im just saying what the people the left are voting for want.

  • Let’s be honest, America isn’t perfect nor will it ever be. But I think living in America is one of the best blessings we could have been given. I do in fact believe that America is the greatest country to ever

  • I think that the main problem with gun control today is education. So many kids today see a school shooting and just assume that the answer to the problem is banning all guns. I think before you start saying that

    • With all due respect Samuel, who plans on banning all guns? This is a common misconception. The word control does not mean abolish. Some people want to ban all guns, but that is a select few. Most liberal affiliated people just want gun control that they feel can create a better handle on the gun epidemic created in our society. If you can site a source proving that most people want all guns to be banned I will find your comment more credible, but even the most bias of articles like https://www.justfacts.com/guncontrol.asp could translate to you as wanting gun bans, yet this is actually just a push for more sensible mediation.

    • Excellent post Samuel. Many far left wing activists will want to ban guns, but it is nearly impossible. Guns themselves do not kill people, people kill people. Mentally ill, people who may have experienced extreme bullying and harm, have been on their breaking point. Many people who are pushing for gun control are asking for universal backgraound checks. But what most people don’t realize is that THERE IS ONE. Any U.S. citizen legal of age, who purchases a gun from an NRA retailer, must go through a background check also known as the FFL (Federal Firearms Liscense). It is privately owned companies who are selling guns illegally who do not require background checks. Also, safety training for those who do know how to operate a gun it extremely important. Here’s an article more on it, if you’re interested. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Firearms_License#Record_keeping

  • Mr. Eggert,
    I agree with you that this is a very fishy situation. First the mainstream media labels it as a suicide, now the most recent news is saying that it looks like murder. The media is also being really weird about the whole thing.

  • The idea of the American Dream  has been around even before america was started. The Europeans had many plans of what they thought the new world would become but they could never have imagined what it has become

    • Sam, really good ideas, just maybe give it a quick proof-read before you publish it- typos can distract from the real message. I like the cited articles about modern people’s belief in the American Dream. Have you considered the personification of the American Dream as used in classic American literature? Many famous novels such as the Great Gatsby focus on the American Dream and have been staples for the building of the American Dream. Here’s a nice article on these influences: https://theculturetrip.com/north-america/usa/new-york/articles/9-novels-about-the-american-dream/ I would love to hear about more about how the idea of the American Dream has shifted over the past few years. Great work!

    • Hey Sam, I liked your post about the American dream. I agree with the sentiments you express, especially “I hate the fact that anyone in America thinks they can’t achieve their dreams. That number should be zero…” With the growing income inequality in our country, it does feel like younger Americans may not have the opportunities to achieve their dreams in the way previous generations did. I myself have been looking for positive messages about the American dream, and I found this article online that I think you’ll find encouraging. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/05/opinion/american-dream.html.
