Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 11, 2019

The co-founder for the March for Our Lives movement called out Trump during an appearance on CNN. Hogg slammed the idea of Trump referring to the need to build a wall as "a national emergency" while discussing former Arizona Representative Gabby Giffords's plan to introduce a bill requiring background checks on all gun-related sales, including private transactions. "If we really want to start talking about the national emergency like the president likes to talk about, 40,000 Americans dying annually from gun violence is a pretty damn good one to start off with," Hogg said.

"homicides"

Now do suicides, stupid little Sniper.

Sniper doesn't see 22 veteran suicides a day as a public health concern. Partially, that's because Sniper doesn't know what public health is, but mostly, it's because if you kill yourself, who gives a ----?

Let's be realistic it saves the taxpayer money.

We should probably encourage every veteran to kill themselves.

Or pull a two-fer like the guy who saved us from having to pay health care for Christoper Kyle and Chad Littlefield.

Opioids, which kill 47,000 Americans a year, were declared a health emergency but that's the only thing Trump has done about it. The only real national emergency is his ego.

Trump IS the national emergency.

3/4 of them offing themselves isn't really "gun violence", is it?

It is if you are on the clean up crew.... gun dead is gun dead... and more often than not is very messy... very messy... stinky too... Brains, teeth, blood, entrails, and poo spatters regardless of whose hand is on the trigger.

Gun deregulation, fentanyl abuse, and global warming are national emergencies, not immigrant farm peasants and bankrupt shop keepers.

Actually the biggest national emergency is the American President is a narcissist and pathological liar with a propensity to violate the law.

The numbers don't lie, Snippy. Suicide by gun is much more likely to succeed than other methods.

The left has no room to talk when it comes to manufactured crises.

Doesn't the left support euthanasia?

#15 Do you blame drugs for drug crime and death? If not, why prohibition and why have a border, the drug users are already in the US.

The truth is the inanimate thing's availability (pill or gun) is part of the problem.
Regulating drugs makes no sense if you are not willing to regulate guns because both are things that don't do anything themselves.

#20 Imagine thinking physician-assisted suicide for painful incurable illness is analogous to gun violence.

Like seriously, all you need to do these days is observe how objectively stupid the right is and you have no choice but to be a leftist.

#20 Euthanasia is a personal choice regulated and approved by medical professionals. Suicide isn't, it is an acute mental health episode that ends in death.

But I do support reich wing gun ownership, and easy access to loaded weapons in their homes. Thumb flavored gun barrels are also fine.
