    1. As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse.

      America will NEVER be dump enough to give up the 2nd amendment.

      If you ask the the people of Venezuela the one thing they regret the most, the number one answer is giving up their firearms.. look at them now, they have no way to fight tyranny and they are eating Flamingos for dinner.

        1. @non-deplorable – So you are fine with discrimination against males, that explains some things. I will give up my legally owned guns when you take away all the illegally owned guns from the gangs, drug dealers, and felons not allowed to own guns. Have at it and let me know how it goes for you.

    2. Interesting take. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the Ukrainian govt handing out fully automatic firearms to the Ukrainian people. You know… to try and avoid ending up in one of said graves.

    1. They just need more liberal socialist democrats. Somewhere there is a lone Republican causing all these problems. And definitely more government spending will help. Bureaucrats fix everything.

    1. We know that you have NPD, have you been checked for OCD? Barney is usually more correct than you. It would be worth it for you to get checked out at least.

  1. Northeast Stumptown has always been the higher violent crime area. But defunding police and disbanding anti-gang units along with high rates of retirement of PDX cops and inability to hire replacements do not help matters. Feel sorry for those stuck having to live in NE.
