WASHINGTON -- As the victims of the latest mass shooting are mourned and buried, some Americans say it's time to revisit the Dickey Amendment, legislative language that has hampered government-funded research on gun violence prevention for more than two decades.

This American Government needs a whole cleaning out of laws and politicians who refuse to move the country into the future. To the Millennials coming of age, the next generation of lawmakers- Stop this archaic minded conservative, republican, juggernaut of delusion, and reset the whole agenda, ridding the country humans who hurt rather than help.

Yes millenials, follow wtf's advice and push for a socialist paradise. History is flush with countries that are peaceful and prosperous after the transition. Just look at Venezuela, Cuba or any of the Soviet-era satellites! Don't let the stories of actual starvation and dissidents disappearing in the night discourage you. The benevolent government will take your constitutional rights and kindly oppress you.

No comment from Hill, and Westerman. Womack and Boozman refused to address the issue. These are our so-called leaders. Cotton doesn't see anything wrong with the status quo. This is what passes for leadership in Ark. Hey, at least they're not Democrats, huh?

Wow, Hawg. Jump the shark much? Are you sure you’re even commenting on this article because your thoughts are waaaay out of context. The article is about legislation blocking the study of gun violence as a public health threat. Not sure how you connected those dots to communism. Conflation in the extreme.

Fact-avoidant behaviors are self-revelatory.

Gun loving Nazis and fascists frighten me to a much greater degree than common sense socialism ever will, HawgJockey.

Wasn't this guy who failed to pay. Child support and complained about Jewish candle [spell check demon problem] s in Arkansas as being against our arkansas culture.

Look at Japan. They have eradicated gun violence. They have regulated,educated, and removed guns because they know that it is about the gun. Take away the guns and the gun violence stops. And yet the people of Japan are not starving or full of dissidents. They are a thriving democracy minus gun violence.

Do we need to be hit over the head with a two by four to get a message that is so clear.

The simple solution is to cut off everyone's trigger finger.
