Still waiting for Michael Turney trial date

Yes that nut job was arrested in 2020 for Alissa’s murder. This podcast was a nice add-on to Sarah’s Voices For Justice. What’s upsetting for me as a parent is all the people who knew, saw, heard about the abuse of Alissa and didn’t do anything.

LISTEN and HELP!

This podcast was riveting. I feel devastated for this young girl, who was most likely verbally and sexually abused and later murdered by her narcissistic step-father. My heart wept for her. I hope she is in peace now with her Mother.

Pretty good

Solid information. Your information on the “gun show loophole” is pretty misleading though. You cannot buy a gun online and avoid a background check. If you’ve ever been to a gun show, all sellers run background checks. Your issue is with private sale of guns from a person to person which is only legal if both individuals live in the same state. There also is no way for the government to regulate private sales of guns due to the inherent, private nature of the sale.
Can the government regulate the private sale of cars? No. Same idea.
