    Also, FWIW, Facebook banned Trump citing public safety concerns, but this kid was all over the Internet on several social media platforms including Facebook and various other places displaying behavior that actually should have raised concern for public safety.
    Trump was banned because of the misinformation he was spreading to his vast audience. Same on Twitter. Doubt this kid had even much of a Facebook presence because no one under 40 even uses Facebook anymore. I'm being metaphorical but you get my point. Let's be real here too. How many followers did this kid have on Tiktok or IG or SC? Maybe a couple of hundred.

    I'll fully admit some of his followers should have taken him more seriously with all the things he was posting but how many times do we hear about a disturbed kid having a violent and aggressive social media timeline before he murders someone? It seems like its evergreen with every kid of the social media era who then goes out and kills someone or multiple people. The thing is a lot of their followers are kids themselves. They probably don't have the maturity or intelligence to process it properly and report it accordingly. Better yet, how do you legislate someone's social media presence?

    Hershel Walker thought this was an actual solution. Does this sound like a good idea?

    The number of followers a user has doesn’t matter here. Someone can have 12 followers and if her titty is out in a photo it gets flagged and taken down within a day. We’re literally better at taking down IG accounts of women who have OnlyFans pages than potential mass shooters who are putting up posts that should be raising major concerns.

    How are you brainiacs coming in your plan to take away the 350 million legal guns from US citizens? Let me know so I can tell my gun owning friends that you and your buddies plan to take their guns away. Meanwhile my son in Washington is looking into the kind of protection that my twin grandsons will get in their preschool this fall. But you go right ahead and take my friends shotguns, rifles, and hand guns away.

    As for your asinine statement that Republicans do not care about innocent children being murdered by mentally and socially disturbed drug addled people, that just is a typical stupid statement by a liberal. The same party that wants to make drug possession and sale legal at the age of 18 and makes sure to protect the "rights" of the criminals who steal and murder people and use the proceeds to sate their drug habit, is obsessed with a single purpose to magically eliminate guns from everyone, even law enforcement.

    I wonder what part of this you thought was a reply to what I said.

    You're the one who made the Trump comparison. The amount of followers mattered in his case because he was a public figure dealing out lies to over a 100 million of his followers on Twitter, friends on FB, etc. Not to mention all the people who had to see that retweeted or quoted garbage. That's why they banned him and before you respond BOP, I don't care what your opinion on that subject is. Nor am I interested in your strawmans.

    You do realize Twitter and other social media platforms have report features for a whole bunch of language whether its racist, sexist, harassment, suicidal, threatening others, etc, right?

    No the number of followers absolutely does matter. Someone with Trump’s follower numbers way out amplifies anything someone with 12 followers could ever dream of achieving.

    You have to be willfully ignorant to think that it doesn't matter.

    Yes, and you do realize that social media platforms actively take down any pages in violation of their TOS without the use of the report function by another user?

    I didn’t expect you to make the connection there. You’ve never proven to be particularly intelligent.

    Be real though: your true concern here is that poor Donnie got his accounts removed.

    Good one.

    But you're still willfully ignorant.

    I talked about Republicans voting against any form of gun control. You rambled on about something else entirely.
