From a reputable source:
BOULDER, CO—In the hours following a violent rampage in Colorado in which a lone attacker killed 10 individuals and injured several others, citizens living in the only country where this kind of mass killing routinely occurs reportedly concluded Monday that there was no way to prevent the massacre from taking place. “This was a terrible tragedy, but sometimes these things just happen and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them,” said Kansas resident Andrew Thompson, echoing sentiments expressed by tens of millions of individuals who reside in a nation where over half of the world’s deadliest mass shootings have occurred in the past 50 years and whose citizens are 20 times more likely to die of gun violence than those of other developed nations. “It’s a shame, but what can we do? There really wasn’t anything that was going to keep this individual from snapping and killing a lot of people if that’s what they really wanted.” At press time, residents of the only economically advanced nation in the world where roughly two mass shootings have occurred every month for the past eight years were referring to themselves and their situation as “helpless.”
Also, I saw a meme this week. A quote attributed to a guy named Lonnie Phillips of Survivors Empowered. Whether he said it or not, it struck me right in the gut.
“If guns aren’t the problem and people are the problem, why would you ever give the problem guns?”
I drive a car. I need insurance and to maintain a particular set of rules, or either my right is removed or I’m fined. I could kill people every time I’m on the road, and if I did, I’d get my ass handed to me.
What the fuck is wrong with people who don’t impose equal or stricter laws on gun buyers?
The party of pro-life proves time and again that they are not.
