Just a pic that sums up how I feel about that. Please don't take this political, and no meaningless 'thoughts and prayers'.

A meaningless prayer is when you pray for a change and DO NOTHING to make that change.
Oh. I was thinking it was like someone praying to win the lottery.
Good luck with that.
I don't really understand what you are saying without some context.
Unless it is about and just guessing here, gun control, the only thing to say about that is, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy or gal with a gun.
Maybe you meant the armchair warriors who do nothing other than spew garbage without ever feeling to get off their butt and actually try to make a difference.
Its a terrible tragedy to lose a child.
My heart aches for those people.

What is a meaningless prayer ?
Prayers are not meaningless. I was referring to the over usage of the phrase 'thoughts and prayers' some people use when they have no intention of either. Prayer is about all we can offer right now. Hope that clarifies what I meant.

Thanks for clarifying that. I am totally with you now. Sorry, I had taken it wrong too. And thanks for your post.

Rginn, I got it. Not much we can say. Another gut-check.

Uh, I definitely read the request to not go political.

Gents, an incident such as what happened in Uvalde, shocks the hell out
of everyone. We're sad, angry, and full of unanswered questions.

Which leads to stress, which in turn leads to short tempers and touchy
nerves. If you think you've been slighted in some manner, be the adult, take a few deep breaths ...... and let it pass.

There will be many very sad funerals this week, some no doubt the
media will be all over. The surviving children will have to live with this
the rest of their lives, as will the parents of those lost.

JMHO..

How can one concentrate on a treasure hunt when the Uvalde Tragedy keeps spinning in your mind?

Can you ask if the Second Amendment Watchdog forum can be reopened ?
I miss the banter of that forum!
Please.
Its still there, just locked.
I joined this forum to metal detect and find things. I understand the management wants to stop the fighting

More rights for gun ownership- less rights for mentally deranged people that give every sign they’re dangerous.
RM I understand our rights but I joined this forum to treasure hunt and learn metal detecting. All this fighting over rights just gets all up in disputes and people wind up getting yTmrd out or banned

If you specify no meaningless thoughts and prayers there,s not much left to say for most individuals.No diss meant to RGINN, that,s just what it is. Any thing else inevitably falls into the political realm by default.
