I really was going to leave this one alone. I have a lot of American friends and a lot of American readers and followers; and I don’t want to offend any of you. I know it’s a hot potato. But this story is still in the news. The NRA are in the midst of their annual convention, still refusing to budge on their stand against gun control.
It’s just all too much for me. I can’t keep quiet any more. Not without blowing a gasket. Not without having an aneurism. Not without my brains exploding out of the top of my head (and not because someone shot me).
So I’ve just gotta ask:
How can it ever be acceptable for anyone to buy a pint-sized REAL gun that shoots REAL bullets, for a child? How can it ever be acceptable for anyone to make a pint-sized REAL gun, that shoots REAL bullets for a child? How can it ever be acceptable for anyone to market and sell a pint-sized REAL gun, that shoots REAL bullets, for a child?
How can it ever be acceptable for a five year old to shoot, and KILL, his two year old sister, with a pint-sized REAL gun,
that shoots REAL bullets, his parents bought him as a gift?
Have the Americans lost their minds?
For how much longer are they going to sit back and watch the NRA buy and bully their way into the Senate? And for how much longer are they going to do nothing about it?
Can somebody please explain it to me.
Can somebody please explain how it is the MAJORITY of Americans WANT gun CONTROL and they are being ignored by the same men and women THEY elect. Those folks would NOT be in the senate, if not for their constituents.
Does this make any sense at all to you?
What’s it going to take?
Can somebody tell me?
Now I’ve gone this far, I might as well really go for it. I don’t think any private citizen should have the right to bear arms. I don’t care what the Second Amendment says. It was adopted in 1791. IT IS NO LONGER RELEVANT, people. And frankly, even if it was still relevant, it’s being misused. Abused. Every crazy with the money to buy guns, can get them.
Give me a break!
Quick now. Ya’ll better fasten your seat belts, ’cause here it comes:
As far as I’m concerned, unless you’re in law enforcement or the military, you should not get to own a flipping gun. Period. Nor do you need to go out and hunt animals for sport. Go dribble a basketball instead.
I’m fearful, you know. If this recent case in Kentucky and the Newtown tragedy haven’t been enough to bring everyone in the U.S. to their senses, I don’t think the gunfire in homes and malls and movie theatres and schools will ever end. It’s going to get worse and worse and worse. And more and more and more innocent, law-abiding citizens will be killed.
Do you see it stopping any time soon? Well, do you?
It’s going to take some drastic measures, I think.
Wanna hear my idea? Sorry, I’m going to tell you anyway.
I say, let’s round up all the members of the NRA and all the politicians and celebrities and Americans who agree with them, and herd of all of them into the woods. Every last one of them. Leave them out there, unarmed. And then the rest of us can arm ourselves with assault weapons and go out and hunt them down.
How do you think they’ll feel about guns then?
Hey, don’t blame me. They’re the ones who insist we all have the right to carry a gun. To defend ourselves.
Well, defend ourselves we must. Against them. And their irrational, asinine, dangerous and truly insane beliefs.
All together now. Ready. Aim. Fire.
