    “Apparently, some in Hollywood are more than willing to promote violence against Trump supporters. Meanwhile, Democrats and liberals in the media want us to believe that it's Trump’s rhetoric that needs to be toned down.”

    I've always said the real violence in on the left.  It is ironic that liberals are so anti-gun, yet are producing such a movie.  What a bunch of hypocrites.  I know many liberals and NONE of them know anything about firearms.  For liberals...that would be guns I'm referring to.

      I'm a liberal and would challenge you on your statement about us not knowing anything about firearms. These sort of ignorant statements show your lack of knowledge about the left. I wager I own more firearms--and can shoot better--than you do.

        Oh, you have no idea.  None.  Don't even go there with me.  You look even more silly to me than you normally do...THIS you need to let go.  Have a good day Randy and thanks for the humor.

          Glad to entertain you, Mike! After all, you entertain many of us on the left with your hilarious claims. The wager still stands. Open sights at 200 yards would be a nice contest to decide the matter...

            I appreciate the offer, but I think you need to realize you and I have two different ideas when it comes to competitive shooting.

            I really enjoy it and regularly participate in international Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) shooting as well as Silhouette shooting, trap shooting and more.  Have you ever gone Cowboy shooting?  THAT is fun.  There is also winter ski shooting, etc.  Then there is always the choice of weapon for competitive shooting, bolt action v. leaver v. magazine, caliber of bullet, etc.

            Competitive shooting in my world involves much more than shooting tin can off of a tree stump.  Oh, I should let you know that a man from Georgia is the regional shooting champion for the IDPA.  He is from a place called Lawrenceville, GA.  Have a good day Randy.

              I've participated in competitive shooting as well. Pistols, shotguns, antique firearms, black powder, etc. are all types of firearms I'm familiar with. Grew up hunting and shooting and seldom used a stump as a target holder, despite your suggestion.

              The offer is still open...

                If I ever get near Georgia, I will let you know.  I enjoy shooting and really wouldn't care if you won every shooting match.  I'd just smile....and tell you how I let you win. smile Promise not to sing "Deliverance" when I shoot?  (Not serious.  Just having fun.)

                  Feel free to drop by anytime, Mike. I'll even take you to a dove shoot and see how good you are with a shotgun. If you've never been to one, you'd enjoy it. Trying to hit a mourning dove is much harder than shooting skeet. The average amount of birds per box of 25 shells was 8 at one time for the average shooter.

                    Randy, we can go back to arguing about politics in a minute.

                    You know I would love it.  I've never been dove hunting.  I go pheasant hunting and duck hunting.  I'm pretty good with a 12-gauge shotgun.  I'm sure it's the same concept. You shoot where the target is moving not where it is at the moment you see it.  Is it safe to say that dove hunting is much the same?

      Do any of the characters in the film describe the people being hunted as Trump supporters?

      Do any of the characters in the film describe themselves as Trump supporters?

      Are any of the characters in the film identified as Trump supporters in any other way?

        It's funny you argued that a well used and innocuous phrase had to mean racism,  when there were plenty of alternative explanations, but now you are questioning and implying if they didn't specifically say something in particular no one should read between the lines.

    Well, I say that the real violence on on the right, so we have a quandary here, yes?

    Mike, you have a lot of preconceived biases.

    What about MCConnell and the viral photo depicting an assault on AOC?

    So it is being done by everybody but only the Right has been associated with the body counts.

      Oh, what about the many assaults on people with MAGA hats?  I will say the left does not discriminate.  They will assault anyone of any race or color who has on a MAGA hat.

      Conservatives have been hounded out of restaurants.  Madonna wants to blow up the white house.  Antifa showed up at Tucker Carlson's house.  BLM harasses Mitch McConnell talking about cutting out his heart...and the list goes on.

      And there is also the movie about assassinating George W. Bush called Death of a President.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_a_President_(2006_film)

      This is the short list. 

      Body counts?  It was a Bernie Sanders supporter who shot Congressmen practicing for a softball game.  The Dayton shooter was an Elizabeth Warren fan.  BLM supporters shot and killed Dallas Police....and the list goes on.

      The violence in on the left.

        Why do you think Trump is so concerned about concealing this information?

          What makes you think he is trying to conceal anything at all?  After all, it's common knowledge that we have supremacists - applying a label to them, however evil sounding, doesn't change a thing.

          Beyond that, what you suggest?  A witch hunt as we did in the past for "communists", siccing the FBI on anyone they deemed communist?

            I did not ask him why. Did you read the article? The reasons are made quite clear within.

            Not allowing the DOJ to share pertinent information on the topic or to muddle how the information is recorded so to minimize the magnitude of the problem is what is being suggested from the article.

            1. wilderness profile image96
              wildernessposted 22 months agoin reply to this

              Confusion.  Yes, I read the article and it said nothing about concealing anything.  In any case, that would be hard to do when they march down the middle of the street carrying signs.  All the article said was that the FBI was doing nothing about people legally collecting guns and using their first amendment rights.

              Do you have something indicating the DOJ is prohibited from sharing information about lawbreakers?  Or that it "muddles" how the information is recorded?  Again, the article indicates nothing of the sort.  It doesn't even "minimize the magnitude of the problem"...but then neither does it "maximize" it as this article does.

              We've had the supremacists around for a hundred years, starting with the KKK.  There is nothing new going on, whether we suddenly decide we want to label it "domestic terrorism" or anything else.

                "But White House officials did not specify which new authorities are needed. Nor does the Administration’s record offer much hope. In the early days of his presidency, the Trump Administration gutted the DHS office that focused on violent extremism in the U.S. and pulled funding for grants that were meant to go to organizations countering neo-Nazis, white supremacists, antigovernment militants and other like-minded groups."

                So, Wilderness, with a rising problem why would the Trump administration go out of its way to do this?

                We need to keep records on these assaults, all assaults, their source, frequency and magnitude, do you have a problem with that?

                By the way, revisit your history, the Klan has been around since the aftermath of the Civil War, a little more than 100 years.

                Conservatives may not take this stuff seriously, but you can bet that I and those of the same mindset do and will and  those that ignore the ramifications of negligence regarding the problem responsible.

                  Because it's a waste of money, doubling efforts for no gain?

                  "We need to keep records on these assaults, all assaults, their source, frequency and magnitude, do you have a problem with that?"

                  Which assaults were not recorded?

                  "By the way, revisit your history, the Klan has been around since the aftermath of the Civil War, a little more than 100 years. "

                  Good - we agree then, for that's exactly what I said.  Nothing new going on - it's been happening for a hundred years.

    I know this movie is total fiction.

    Liberals hate firearms.  They are anti-gun.  I've never met a dedicated liberal who knew the first thing about firearms. 

    Those who support President Donald Trump are very well armed.  They would not hesitate to shoot if shot at by anyone. 

    This is just a way for some Hollywood liberals to make a couple of bucks on a low-grade movie that appeals to their base.

      Mike, you are guilty of stereotyping in a big way. Many liberals own guns and know how to use them. Most of us are not ant-gun, but believe hunting and personal protection can easily exist within a framework of rational gun control. By the way, many conservatives believe the same thing.

      1. Readmikenow profile image97
        Readmikenowposted 22 months agoin reply to this

        Yes, I am stereotyping.

        Try to understand I've been the victim of stereotyping as well.  Simply because I support President Donald Trump I am not a racist, anti-gay, etc., etc., etc.

        So, I have no problem stereotyping liberals.  My description does fit the liberals I know and are in my family.  I know...that shouldn't matter.

        I do have one question.

        "rational gun control"

        Is the Democrat liberal model of this working well in Chicago?

        ALSO

        What about all the deaths in the United States cause by knives?  Is there such a thing as rational knife control?

        "China, another society with very strict gun laws, also has mass murders. A 2014 terrorist knife attack in Kunming left 33 dead and 143 injured. A series of school attacks in the early 2010s killed at least 25 in total; while not all of these school attacks were mass murders (five or more killed in one attack), some meet the criteria: eight schoolchildren murdered with a knife in Nanping in March 2010; nine murdered in Hanzhong with a meat cleaver in May 2010."

        https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/08/ … hout-guns/

        A man in California recently killed four people with a knife.

        "A man killed four people during a stabbing rampage in Southern California before officers found his car parked outside a 7-Eleven convenience store and arrested him, authorities said."

    I would like to point out to all who are against hunting that it is a very regulated sport.  Each state government has a department that manages the wildlife populations in their state as they have for several decades.  They determine how many hunting licenses are to be issued, how much an individual can obtain during a particular hunting season and more.  Hunters pay quite a bit of money is taxes to support these state departments.  Fear not, wildlife is being properly managed and the states are being compensated with tax revenue.  When you add the taxes paid on hunting equipment as well as the various business revenue generated from hunting, it is a good situation.  Hunters help wildlife populations remain at safe levels in the environments they occupy. Wildlife populations are regularly monitored.
