    This guy was previously investigated and interviewed by the police and mental health people. To my knowledge he owned the Glock 21 legally although it had an extended capacity magazine . California has the strictest regulations on buying pistols you will find. Only New York is stricter. Over and over again, these guys are using the police to commit suicide on one level or another. They just have some strange need to kill others first. We are so afraid to be thought we are violating their civil rights that the problem grows until innocent people die. We teach people to be proficient killers in the military, then turn them lose on a society that does nothing to properly care for them (their mental health) . We need to do a much better job treating these people before they harm others. It would be great if a simplistic remedy would be gun control. Unfortunately it’s gone way beyond that and they are using explosives, cars, and knives.I can’t believe that the mental health community can’t diagnose and treat these people before their problems manifest themselves in murder of the innocents. Our society is so advanced on so many levels and yet we fail miserably to recognize and treat these people’s underlying mental health condition.

    Try bear hunting with a bow and arrow. In many instances the bear has the advantage. Unless the hunter makes an almost perfect shot the bear can easily survive the wound to attack the hunter.

    Ironic that many of the players in question speak loudly about America being a “racist” or “white supremacist”. I can hardly imagine a truly racist country that would allow black football players to make millions of dollars a year in salaries and then endorsements. I would think that would drive the average white supremacist into an apoplectic state.

    Like a bad recurring dream, the memory of Catholic boarding school, cringing in my seat, sure the priest would call on me to congregate a verb. What do I carry with me 50 years later? “Semper fi” and “Carpe diem.”

    Good job Mr. Payne. At times I want to put Trump in the corner for a “time out.” His arrogance and ego can be infuriating. Obviously that’s what he wants. On the bigger picture, the Democrats perpetuate the problem with their focus on “resist” and the obsession with the Russians. No realistic solutions presented, just get out and march about how much they hate Trump. Is this the best we can do? Always settling for the “lesser of evils” in elections and kick the can down the road? The Democrats are now (once again) hanging their hat on a progressive pediatrician from Orange County (CA). She cries a lot. She “understands” the needs of the people and is sure she can do a better job. With all her sensitivity I’m afraid the swamp rats in Washington D.C. would decimate her.I was hoping that out of the last election (the ultimate lesser of evils) we might be able to hit a centrist point and compromise, reason with one another, etc. Apparently, no such luck.

    Why is this so complex? Realistic term limits. Regardless of their political affiliation they hopefully wouldn’t have enough non-campaigning time to get into too much trouble. Hopefully just enough time to focus on the needs of the people and be encouraged to work with their fellow congressmen.

    I find it so interesting when people say “Trump is not my president.” I guess that means you can pick and choose what laws you want to follow and you only obey them when it suits you. I think Trump is an egotist and has bad impulse control, but he’s still the president. We still are bound by the law of the land while he is president. I have often said my greatest concern is we are turning into the modern day Rome. Free speech is going by the wayside in favor of political correctness. I don’t have time to go through the list of our freedom’s being compromised, but it doesn’t take long to see where our Constitution is being stripped of it’s original intent as set forth by our forefathers.

    “You deserve what you settle for.” A favorite expression that encompasses what Superposition is posting. The republicans are tripping over their own egos and the democrats are making us look like complete ninny’s to the rest of the world. This behavior coming from the most powerful nation in the world? Such a waste of very precious time for dealing with so many needs our people have. Our government, from the top down, seems to languish in one inane action after another. Get it together people, real human beings are dying as a result of your inaction and childish behavior.

    Yes, a very bad reality show. I have no political axes to grind, I wish both sides of this debacle would just shut up and go back to work. I would love to see twitter deactivated for a fifty mile radius of Washington D.C.I remember the 1970’s and the chaos America went through then. Although the country is strong and we survived that period, it just seems to be such a waste of time and opportunity. Oh well, back to the comics.
