Raising the age for gun purchase from 18 to 21? What does that do really? A mentally ill 18 year old, without some sort of intervention/help will still be mentally ill at 21……probably worse off. So the 18 year old just waits till he is 21. Okay, you mean like he waited until he was 18. Better results would be to recognize mental illness and DO SOMETHING (FOR GOD SAKES, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH). How bout some treatment, some therapy. Free therapy instead of forgiving student loans. Maybe a document from a mental shrink, that declares a person is mentally fit to own a gun should accompany applications to purchase a gun. Wow……that would keep someone from just on the blink of an eye walking in a gun shop and buying because he is ticked off at locals and wants to go shoot up their children in a school, a hospital or a grocery store. Personally, I am not sure Joe Biden would be mentally fit to own a gun now. Lets see, I have to test negative for COVID to get entry into another country, via airlines……….TESTING? Why not mental health testing to buy that gun? I’d go for that! Rights are not violated…..proof of competence is essential. In fact Joe should have taken a competence test before he was on the presidential ballot. When and if the need comes for Americans to protect themselves, even from their own government, mentally ill individuals are dangerous to all of us with a gun in their hand. They’d just want to shoot somebody, anybody…….they aren’t capable of recognizing who we are at war with. To them, everyone is the enemy. (Arlin Report comment)

After this week’s break in the primary calendar, seven states will hold elections on Tuesday. In the biggest of them, California, Democrats are already looking at some troubling early turnout numbers: So far, only about 2.2 million Californians have returned ballots. That’s less than a third of the total early vote at this point in California’s recall election last year.
Primary turnout is traditionally apoor indicatorof general election turnout. But Paul Mitchell, a leading political data expert in California, says Democrats have reason to be concerned this year.
Mitchell, who works with Democratic campaigns says everything that can be done to…
