America Needs to Get Its Shit Together on Gun Control
Pardon this commercial break. Here's the way we see it. Those who like to tout "people kill people, not guns" are idiotic morons. While they might think they're mildly correct in some twisted fashion, no one can argue the fact that if it were illegal for citizens to carry guns, gun-related deaths in America would plummet. Those who think the Constitution gives Americans the "right to bear arms" are imbeciles stuck in the 1700's. Yes, we needed guns then. No, we don't need them now. It's as simple as that.
The rest of the world thinks we Americans have our screws completely loose on this one and they are right. Columbine. Virginia Tech. Neither would ever have happened had there been stricter gun control laws in place. Fuck the NRA and all their bullshit. Fuck the idiots that let the ban on semi-automatic weapons lapse.
It's really very simple. Fewer guns. Fewer shootings. Fewer deaths. Why is this so hard for people to grasp? Why would anyone support laws that are based on insuring the potential for death? Why do politicians put up with pro-gun lobbyist bullshit? Why is this country so retarded on this issue? Just about every other civilized country in this world has it figured out. Why is it so hard for us to do so?
Please, do tell. We can't wait to hear from you gun-toting, right to bear arms lunatics. Wait until your kid gets shot by some student in a bad mood with a gun. See how you feel then.
