One more mass shooting: 3 people dead, 12 wounded. The culprit? A kid armed with an AK-47-style rifle… bought online.
Why is the press so worked up? It happens all the time… In America, this is nothing but a short news item.
After countless random shootings all over the land, legislators continue to turn a blind eye to this calamity. They have much better things to do (?) than trying to protect the lives of their fellow citizens.
What about the public at large? Do they feel any outrage besides holding pitiful vigils and praying? Not really. If you are an American, you have the right to bear arms… and use them whenever somebody pisses you off.
After all, this the way the West was won.
The obvious problem in this land is the overabundance and the unregulated flow of weapons. Any halfwit can buy an automatic killing machine. Does it make any sense?
Why in hell are people allowed to purchase weapons of war? And would these Sunday “warriors” be on the frontline if we were suddenly invaded? I very much doubt it. They just like to dress the part.
So, what are they defending? The right to kill defenseless people?
In most of the civilized world, the authorities have final say in whether a person may obtain a license and/or firearm(s). Not in the Land of Free and the Home of the Brave where the holy second amendment is venerated like the Black Virgin of Guadalupe.
According to the Business Insider, “There are only three countries(in the entire world), that have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms: Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States.”
But in Mexico, “Perhaps the biggest hurdle of all is that there is only one shop in the entire country where Mexicans can go to buy guns, and it’s located on a heavily guarded army base in Mexico City.”
If there was such a place in the United States, I probably would be much less vocal about this issue. But chances are that in America there are more gun shops than donuts shops.
Will America ever wake up from its irresponsible slumber and stop this insane love affair with military-grade weapons? For my part, I don’t want to be at the mercy of some sociopath having a bad hair day.
Join me and advise your elected officials that, if they want to keep their jobs, they better start working on some legislation to seriously curb the proliferation of guns and homegrown terrorists.
This might get them off their heinies.
