Kangaroo Screed Rejects Thoughts & Prayers

Some important stats along with NEXTGEN perspective on the gun debate and reaction from politicos and the public as this UMKC pundit in training takes on Missouri's gun rights record. Take a look:

Thoughts and prayers are not enough

Emily Reid "Among the deadliest mass shootings in history" is a headline I have seen 13 times in my 20 years of life. San Bernardino, Newton, Las Vegas and now Parkland. It seems America as a county is asking "when will it end?" But it won't end. It will happen again.


  1. The lion's share of gun violence in America is related to Black Criminality.

    It's (Gun Violence) provenance is clear, irrefutable and damning.

    But, of course, we can't mention that. It doesn't fit the "Narrative".

    We are all dead, the result of Black On White Hate Crimes that the Kansas City Star and local media, swept under the rug and refuses to discuss or cover in this town, because they are gutless fuckin cowards.

  2. "The Founding Fathers were intelligent and wise men, however, they were incapable of seeing the future. They had no clue that guns could, and would, become weapons of mass destruction. Weapons, which, like the AR-15, were designed for military troops to kill enemy fighters and are now in the hands of 19-year-old boys on a rampage of revenge. There are guns which are capable of shooting 100 rounds a minute, capable of inflicting unspeakable tragedy."

    Total fucking lies.

    First, the AR-15 is not a machine-gun or an "assault weapon." The AR-15 is a semi-automatic version of the M-16, which is a machine gun. However, in Vietnam, the military found that troops with early versions of the M-16 were using fully-automatic "spray and pray" fire – and often failing to hit the enemy. So when the M-16 was redesigned in the early 1980s, its fully automatic rate of fire was reduced to three-shot bursts, forcing troops to actually aim rather than hip-fire. But any fully-automatic fire is simply not an option for the civilian AR-15.

    Second, the idea that the AR-15 is some kind of horrifically powerful weapon is absurd. In its most common chambering, the 5.56 NATO, the AR-15 is actually underpowered compared to traditional American battle rifles like the M1873 "Trapdoor" in .45-70 or the M1903 Springfield in .30-06. The AR-15 is a .22-caliber centerfire. When its M-16 counterpart was introduced in Vietnam, it was derided as a "mouse gun" and a "poodle-shooter." Many troops were dismayed when their .30-caliber M-14s were replaced with the new rifle.

    Indeed, the M-16 and AR-15 rifle suffered a poor reputation for a couple of decades after its introduction in Vietnam, in part because ammunition issued by the Army resulted in malfunctions and jams, causing the deaths of a number of troops during firefights with the Viet Cong.

    Third, those who contend that "no one goes hunting with an assault rifle" have betrayed the fact that they are probably not hunters themselves, or, if they are hunters, they're decades out of date. The modular nature of the AR-15 makes it easily adaptable for a variety of hunts in numerous calibers. Short-barreled AR-15s in .450 Bushmaster or 7.62x39 have become the number-one choice for Southern hog-hunters, while Western prairie dog-hunters can install a 26" "varmint" barrel in .204 Ruger or .223 Remington for unparalleled long-distance accuracy. And calibers such as .223, .300 Blackout, and 6.8 SPC are perfect for Texas deer or medium-sized eastern whitetails. The AR-15 platform is so ideally suited for hunting that in 2015, Remington, the oldest maker of sporting arms in the U.S., discontinued its inferior 7400/750 series of semi-automatics after sixty years in production. The only semi-autos it manufactures for the hunting market today are AR platforms. (By the way... nobody uses a 30-round magazine to hunt; most states limit capacity to four or five rounds while hunting.)

    Banning the AR-15 to stop school shooters would be like banning Boeing 757s to stop terrorist attacks after 9/11. You've never heard anyone say, "Nobody needs to fly through the air at 600 mph. Look at how many people died because of those dangerous jetliners!" Would liberal journalists, who advocate repealing the Second Amendment and banning guns, agree to a repeal of the First Amendment and impose a ban on computers, digital cameras, and video cameras because child pornographers use them? I doubt it.

    The real threats to our freedoms, now come from the Deep State and Antifa-thugs in the streets, who are agents of that same Deep State. The lubrication that runs the false narrative is Progressive/Democrat, politically correct policies.

    If a Democrat's lips are moving he/she is lying.

    1. Way too long didn’t read

    2. Saw the author-didn’t read

    3. Pass- too long

    4. Dullard poster, I skipped it too.

    5. If it’s chuck...it’s junk! Pass.

  3. You're not even old enough to drink Emily and you have no life experience, only an opinion voiced at the top of the lungs like all idiots from your generation. Go find a nice boy get married and put an apron on. You obviously have no business writing editorials.

    1. More them...less you. They are the future. You are the past

  4. So take all the guns.

    Then if Blacks break into your home, and THEY will have guns, they will beat the shit out of you and tie you up.

    They will rob you blind.

    And they will rape your wife and teenage daughters right in front of you.

    It HAS happened.

    What will you do then?

    Call the police? When seconds count, they will be there in minutes.

    1. Too stupid/didn’t bother reading

  5. Been through three of these, under Johnson, Reagan and BushBaby.

    After all the shouting and self-congratulating dies down, the only result will be higher prices on guns and ammunition.
    That result, more profit for Guns and Ammo Manufacturers is the REAL AGENDA of the NRA.

  6. Leftists believe owning guns is a sign of mental illness
    and believe men dressing like women is perfectly normal behavior.

  7. Emily, the vast majority of the mass shootings you are talking about were orchestrated by a first or second generation illegal alien. It appears the guns are not the problem. Shut down the borders. Society created the problem not gun manufacturers or law abiding gun owners.

  8. The brain is a beautiful organ.
    It works
    24 hours per day
    7 days per week
    365 days per year.
    From before one exits the womb
    right up until one votes Democrat.
