    It's a fun site to mess with and look at head to head match-ups.

    A tale of 2 message boards

    I haven't gone to any message boards of theirs. If you want to go back there and cause a stir, share this link with them: http://www.winsipedia.com/nebraska/vs/colorado It shows us vs them over time and gives all the stats on win and losses, largest victory, longest streak and all sorts of other stats. We are 49-19-2 against them over the years.

    I'm aware of that, I was pointing out that it's the same with Democrats as a whole being against some things that Republicans bring to the table. It's the way politics are in this country, and it really needs to change. If you reply, I'll try to reply tomorrow. I've got teacher back to school function tonight and won't be back on the site.

    In my opinion, I see things changing with that. I could be wrong, but it seems like there are a lot of stubborn politicians that are just against legislation because someone from the other side has brought it forward. It happens on both sides.

    I'm sorry, I've been at school and in meetings so I haven't had time to respond. First of all, most of us that are gun owners are all for stricter background checks. The guys that I hunt with and shoot with talk about it all the time. The main problem that we have is that most of the anti-gun people tend to lump all gun owners in to one big group. We also all have the thought that banning guns alone will not solve this mass shooting issue. If we don't look at the mental health of the people of our nation, we are failing in this process. I just get upset when anyone responds to what I say, because most of you just want to blame the guns and not look at the people using the gun. I don't need data to tell me that most mass shooters have some mental issues. @BigRedBuster, I have no idea why Trump is against background checks. I'm a Republican, but I really don't lump Trump in to the Republican party. Trump is his own special kind of president. I'm not a Trump fan, although I do agree with some of the things he is trying to do. On the other side, I was also not a big fan of Obama but I did agree with some things that he did. I'm sorry if I didn't answer everyone, I'm taking a quick break from my teacher meeting to type this.

    When did I say that MORE guns are the solution? I have agreed with all of you that there does need to be a ban on certain guns.

    Ok, I can see that everyone just wants to blame guns and guns alone. Once again, I'm all for a ban on certain guns but I feel sorry for everyone that is just blaming guns for all of this. If they finally do ban some guns, please be ready to justify why there is still these crimes occurring in our country. I'll be in the football and basketball forums.

    I have no idea how much data is out there. The only data that I have about students in our country is the fact that I have been in education for so long. I'm sure that Parliment does bicker and debate, out government is a little different with how they fight each other tough IMO.

    Hollywood is in California and I will guarantee you that social media is a bigger problem in our schools than a lot of other countries. I will also be willing to bet that our government is a much differently run than a lot of other countries. Not wanting to admit any of this is a problem as well.

    The problems that we have here that I was referring to would be: 1) Hollywood: we just can't ignore the fact that movies and tv are getting more and more violent and therefore leading to more kids thinking violence is a part of life. 2) The increase use of social media with cyberbullying becoming more and more common. I'm not saying that there isn't bullying in other countries, but it's way more rampant in our nation. I'm going in to my 19th year teaching and we deal with it more today than we ever did when I started teaching. 3) Hate in our government. I know that Trump is a big part of this problem, but Republicans and Democrats are all getting worse and bicker with each other so much. When our elected officials can't even get along, it makes it tougher for citizens to do the same. None of this is probably making any kind of sense, but we can't just focus on banning guns. We have a lot of work to do in our country and I'm afraid we always will.

    I don't necessarily agree with all of that, but I'll respect your opinion. Last thing I'll say before I take my kids to the pool and I've said this already, I really hope that they do pass legislation and ban the guns that people do want to ban. When that day comes, I will once again come in here to see what people are blaming if these shootings are still happening.

    Your two statements are contradicting. If You. Are. Not. Saying. That., then what other issues are there besides guns?
  13. SandhillshuskerW

    Ok, I'm out with this. I'm never going to convince you that guns aren't the only issue here. Once again, I hope that they do ban certain guns and I really hope that all shootings will stop.

    I didn't go back and read this whole thread, so you're also on board with banning movies with gun violence and video games and tv shows?

    You are to a degree. What if we changed mental health to saying that we are desensitized to violence in our country? In addition to banning certain guns, which I am ok with, let's also ban so much violence in our movies, video games and tv.
