    Absolutely. A bunch of people died who didn't need to. That is plenty of reason.

    I agree it will be used against us. I worry that the callous responses and lack of solutions by the gun community is going to do more to damage our rights than where the flag is sitting today.
    Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop.

    Exactly. Americans were murdered and the President ordered the the flag of our country to be flown at half mast in the honor of the deceased. How anyone can complain about this escapes me.

    Sure, things happens with an agenda, but Americans being murdered isn't the time to complain about an act of honoring them.

    It is NOT a big deal if you're 10yo, or thereabouts bc a 10yo wouldn't know the difference between a mast and a staff. It's monumental when you're half a century and you're witnessing the half staff (land based) gesture being utilized primarily to highlight "gun violence". Yet another example of politicians weaponizing our cultural icons (statues, flags, etc) and using them against us. The will of the left is not simply being imposed, it's being installed.

    Seriously? Do we really want to argue semantics over mast vs staff? I'm sure you knew what I meant.

    There was a time when the honor was reserved for those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. The honor is not as special as it once was since it now involves people who are random victims being used in a political dog and pony show.
    That is how I understand the OP in this thread.

    My only real problem with this is that Biden is being a ghoul by using crime victims to push for anti-Civil Rights legislation and raise political funds from the Anti-Gun lobby(must be nice to make $500,000 a year plus free hotels and dinning just to spread misinformation.)

    Doesn't count b/c it doesn't (fit) the false narrative that they are trying to push.

    The American Flag is being used as a political pawn to push a narrative. People are killed every day by the hands of drunk drivers but the victims are never honored by lowering the flags. Let’s not also forget all our service members that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. I’m in no way trying to diminish the tragedy of eight Americans being slaughtered but using the flag to inflame the anti-gun grabbers is disturbing to me.
