Six figure salaries are not enough? My son's mother in law makes that teaching high school.


You’ve seen her W2’s?

But no, that’s not enough. She’s probably 30+ years into the system. After that long in a job they’ve earned 6 figures. Cops, firefighters, etc them too.

I wouldn’t do that job for that pay, nor would I have done the 30 years before that making far far less.

Her daughter has, and is also a college graduate. But you are busy trying to rationalize why it is true. It is no big secret.

That is typical of whiny brats who are in the middle of a temper tantrum.

The gun lobby is not violating their rights in any way.

@BillRM,
The problems at home began when the public let the democrats take the mentally 'challenged' out of the institutions and try to assimulate them into regular society. Look at all of the shooters of the schools and else where and you'll find them all to be 'mentally 'challenged'.

It is time for the Americans to wake up and demand that the government treats the REAL problem, rather than the symptoms ...................

Do you really think these kids are thinking about 2nd amendment and repealing it, or doing what they are told? Progressives have no shame.
And if they have heard of the 2nd amendment it would be interesting to hear what they were told. Let's hope their parents can straighten them out.

I'm pretty sure they're just thinking that they don't want to get killed in school.

A gun-technology pioneer says he's seeing a "huge explosion" in sales of a machine that allows people to make their own untraceable AR-15-style rifles in response to the national debate on gun control.

Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson, maker of the Ghost Gunner auto-milling machine, says sales doubled in February after the Valentine's Day massacre at a Florida high school, where 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz stands accused of murdering 17 people with an AR-15.

During the first five days of March, sales took another leap after President Trump endorsed tighter background checks and a higher national age limit for gun purchases. From March 1-5, the open-source nonprofit sold as many machines, nearly 200, as it usually does in a month.

"This is a machine that allows you to make a ton of ARs, and people actually do it. I'm shocked. It's like an obsession for some people," said Wilson, a 30-year-old self-described free market anarchist whose organization's previous rate of sales would bring in a few million dollars a year.

"I think it's very, very good that someone can make 12 ARs for themselves. That's a real political capability," he said.

Wilson said he believes a "very conservative" estimate would be that 25,000 to 30,000 AR-15s are in circulation because of his machine, the first generation of which was introduced in 2014. Sometimes, he's contacted by authorities, he said, after the machines have changed hands.

Wilson's Ghost Gunner exploits a loophole in gun control laws that require federally licensed dealers to conduct background checks on people who purchase AR-15 lower receivers, but only when the part is more than 80 percent complete. Lower receivers house an AR-15's trigger and magazine port. Other gun parts are available without a background check.

The microwave-sized Ghost Gunner machine costs $1,675, and 80 percent finished AR-15 lowers are available from many sources, with Defense Distributed asking $65 for the part. Anyone can buy the machine and the partially finished part without government permission. The machine finishes the drilling needed to make the lower receiver work, and can be configured for engraving.
