spent most of yesterday in Boca with a few clients all of whom live in Parkland. They believe this will be the tipping point. There is a planned march on Washington and apparently Rubio has changed his tune and is distancing himself from the NRA. They said the kids were all live streaming stuff on social media while it happened. They knew about it before it was on the news.
I'm all for stricter controls. I agree nobody needs an AR-15 - I've shot one at a range (my brother in law is chief of SWAT and brings a pile of different guns every time we go to the range). AR-15 is designed for one thing. Killing people. There's no way anyone is "hunting" with it.  I've never seen one for less than $800 but I suppose I wasn't really looking. I did learn that in FL it's actually easier to buy an AR-15 than a handgun.  You can get one in a matter of minutes because of the classification and past laws. Hand gun took me 3 days and I'm not even a citizen. Not sure how it works in these Pawn shops but I think you can just buy whatever they have....
Raise the age to be able to buy a gun. Insist on proper training, tighter regulations. Take the likes of the AR-15 off the shelves. I'm all for all of that. Convincing the NRA and their followers of any of this...good luck with that.....

are any guns designed for anything other than killing people?

To kill poor defenseless animals in the name of Sport.

Good job Aguero doesn't have to face up against the Tyrone sledging ;)

League one Wigan Athletic have just knocked Manchester City out of the FA Cup. Nothing like a good underdog story/win like that in team sport!  meanwhile in the GAA football championship a group stage has been introduced for final eight...

The other senior football club semi final is on next weekend i'm sure Corofin or Moorefield wouldn't be too bothered if their semi final was pushed back a week.

Slaughtneil played their hurling AISF last weekend. Not that simple.
Pushing back todays semi final by one week to avoid a clash with the Sigerson cup final and to have both semi finals on the same day would be that simple however sensible fixture scheduling is rarely done with the GAA.

So punish an entire club to suit two lads? I’m sure all the dual players in Slaughneil wouldn’t be at 100% this weekend after playing such a big game the weekend before while Nemo were sitting on their hands.

Robbing Peter to pay Paul.

The Slaughtneil game wouldn't be moved with this suggestion.
Exactly.

Great coverage. The BBC is giving better service to the GAA than RTE.
Stop you will upset Easytiger with comments like that.

No blankets in this game. Two association football like goals scored.

Kieran Molloy got a Garda escort to the game after Corofin match. He may feature yet for NUIG. Liam Silke won't. He picked up a finger injury.
He's on now. Player welfare my arse.

If the players have no interest in their own welfare they can't have any complaints.
They just played an All-Ireland club semi-final.
No one would hold it against them if they left it at that.
If they decide they want to be involved in another game that's up to them.
The fixture schedule is the main problem, players will play no matter what. How hard would it be to avoid matches clashing.

Good advert for College football, enjoyable final. UCD did a Dublin on it late on when they took the lead.

0-7 was enough to win that game.
