In the aftermath of the latest mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School in Florida I read an article by a grieving relative that the NRA (national rifle association) is complicit.
I couldn’t agree more but would include every “family values” member of Congress that dances to the NRA’s tune who have demonstrated campaign contributions and fear of being abandoned and called unAmerican by the gun toting Make America Great Again lunatics has a greater value than public safety.
A greater value than children in school, workers at a job site or concert goers.
“Constitutional Originalists” – that’s about as pathetic a label as one could come up and begs the question do the “originalists” believe this is what the original intent was?
In the past when addressing gun violence I have stated that I support gun ownership but also repeatedly stated that it’s time for responsible gun owners to stand up and denounce the false narratives by both Congress and the NRA – to take back the “right”.
But I’m going to take that a step further and say anyone who believes they need an assault rifle as a “patriot” or “hunter” is not only delusional but a liar and a fool.
Bump stocks, silencers, open carry, large capacity magazines and the rest of the insanity are not a Constitutional guarantee – anyone believing they are or believes it heightens their personal Rambo fantasy should drop the pretense and joy the military.
That’s the real military not some laughable group running around in surplus military clothing.
Mental health issues? There’s a lot of that going round from the halls of government to the NRA and their stooges, so much so in the aftermath of Parkland you have a white nationalist group boasting that the shooter was a member of and “trained” with them – maybe this idiot president will announce there’s probably some good people in that group.
During the Great Depression among several agencies created to address the issues was the National Recovery Agency, NRA, this nation is in dire need of recovery – a recovery from the nightmare of gun violence and “family values” as propagated by the National Rifle Association and their puppets – there’s only one way to accomplish that – vote and take back the right to a government that places the common welfare above lobbyists and corporate donations…….. a government that values the lives of children and citizens above all else.
