Another 59 people have lost their lives for no reason and 527 more have been injured. This time the massacre of innocent people happened in Las Vegas, at a concert. The shooter had at least 10 guns (many of which were automatic rifles) with him and another 18 were found at his home. He also had hundreds of rounds of ammunition and explosives. Many of the guns were purchased legally.
It seems that the NRA, the GOP (who have been bought and paid for by the NRA), the President and all those gun-totin’ Second Amendment-loving Americans think having the right to bear arms makes America great.

He tells so many lies it’s a wonder his nose isn’t 10-feet long. In fact, I don’t think he’s ever told the truth, about anything, in his entire life. He claims he’s saved the city of Toronto 1 billion dollars. It is a bald-faced lie.
He swore he never used crack until our police chief said he’d seen the video of him smoking it. When, red-faced, he had to admit he’d “tried it”. He insists he doesn’t know who he was talking about in a video where he was seen, and heard, threatening to kill someone. Excuse me!
