    If this is about politicians having to live with guns in the halls of Congress, then I see a decrease in politicians shaking hands, kissing babies, taking commuter trains, alk while pretending to be just like John Q. Public.

    If those people can bring guns there, then the campaign trail may not be that much safer.

    I think the NRA should equip all the members of congress and the senate and equip trump with an uzi. Leave the teachers unarmed.

    In all the 35 years I've known of The Donald, not once have I ever heard of him holding a weapon.

    Only in 2016, obvious in a bid to gain votes and to appear more like a true conservative Republican, did he don the long weapon. Why would a very wealthy real estate developer who routinely had several bodyguards with him, need to carry a gun?

    With the passing a few years ago of Charlton Heston, the Wayne LaPierre group were more than happy to take him on as a paid spokesman. With Heston, they were openly looking for a very prominent American anyway.

    I remember that Sarah Palin, who at least lives in a state that has a ridiculous amount of wilderness, could barely hunt, but she too was an NRA supporter.

    As far as the first part of your reply, the gun lobbyists make sure that any Congressman/woman declaring him/herself as a Republican gets their campaign donations. The better to keep them in their back pockets.


    I agree with the last part about keeping teachers unarmed. Teachers are there to teach classes, not engage in wild shootouts (which they would likely lose anyway, due to lack of marksmanship training).

    I suppose there are several reasons why she'd be fired. Maybe atop the list was the fact she was lying through her teeth?

    Seems pretty quick actually. They are firing her before she even has a trial. Leads me to believe that the police don't find her version of events credible. It doesn't bode well for her trial in my opinion.

    Finding her story completely credible is still cause for termination.

    Per Jean's family's attorney...
    Specifically [Police Chief Rene Hall] explained that a premature administrative suspension could have possibly implicated Guyger’s fifth amendment protections and compromised the criminal prosecution. The Jean family expressed satisfaction in this explanation and in Guyger’s termination.

    Police from across the city of Pittsburgh are responding to an active shooting situation at the The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

    KDKA’s Andy Sheehan reports that at least four people have been confirmed dead, possibly as many as 7 to 8 could be dead.

    Police have requested that residents stay inside their home as they have exchanged gun fire with a suspected gunman.

    When officers arrived the gunman reportedly shot at them, forcing officers to use their vehicles as a shield.

    The Synagogue was reportedly full of people for a Saturday service and police say they’ve received several calls from people barricaded inside the Synagogue.
