"..recent U.K. study showing a shrinking of brain tissue in people after they had developed covid-19..." I'm as red-right as they come but personally I believe folks who keep refusing to be vaccinated have brains that are shrunk enough as it is.
If those 56,000 people spent as much time bettering their own lot in life instead of whining on social media by signing a useless petition they'd be as well off as Bezos. But they're not nearly that smart.
Firearms fault? Nope. A societal issue, indicating lawlessness and a disregard for humanity. Take away firearms and you'll still have the criminals who'll find a way to break the law. It is really just that simple.
