Similar to creating a topic for Washington Journal I'm creating one for Lex Fridman for his podcasts that I think would be of interest and appealing to those here.

Re: What polcies can be done to prevent mass shootings

For many years we have heard the demands for the protection of the unborn—often at the expense of the living—from some segments within the Christian church. But if we are really for life, I must ask where is the cacophony of voices for stricter gun control laws to protect the lives of the living? W...

Re: What polcies can be done to prevent mass shootings

school shootings are extremely rare occurrences. The annual odds that an American child will die in a mass shooting at school are nearly 10 million to 1, I think this is one of those cases in which the math is not going to sway anyone: -School shootings used to be zero. - It’s not a force of nature...

Also abortion has never been regarded by any laws as equivalent to the murder of a child. Yes, if the abortion had not occurred then there would be the resultant birth of a child. However, until that child is officially born then that "child" is not yet a child. What is your basis for those stateme...
