I can just add to this post. charlottesville, Rep. Scalise, Las Vegas, New York, Texas church, Walmart in Colorado. They are asking for prayers. Really. Is that the best we can do? Faith without works is dead. Prayer is worthless without action. Now the killers are white men from here. It doesn’t fit the narrative. Walls won’t keep us safe. We had a shooting of a cop in my town yesterday by a teen. How does a teen get a gun? We do have a mental health crisis in this country. The cutting of insurance, medicaid, medicare, etc will make it worse. People need treatment and treatment costs money. I can’t provide free treatment and keep my office open. We need gun licensing and vetting like we do everything else. Stop the chaos. Stand up to the NRA. Find out which congressmen have accepted large donations from the NRA. Refuse to vote for them.
I haven’t posted about Orlando yet because I needed to process how I felt. My daughter was a member of the Gay Straight Alliance for Stetson University in Deland FL. She had many gay friends that went to Orlando.
There is so much speculation as to why- was it ISIS, bigotry, hatred..
I have a gun. I can pass a background check. The FBI has never questioned me. So why did he get a gun legally? He can’t get on an airplane because of what he might do, but he can buy a gun. I don’t see the logic in this.
I have grown up in the country where people had a lot of shot guns. I live in a military town where people have rifles of all types. What does a civilian need with an AK? It could shoot thru a wall in an apartment complex and kill people several apartments down.
Our government just wants a moment of silence. I don’t want to be silent. I want to be loud, outraged, screaming. Stop with the killing. Just stop it.
The founding fathers had muskets with one round at a time when they wrote the second amendment. Mass shootings weren’t an issue.
Why now? Are we so depraved that we have to kill mass numbers of people? It isn’t one race or creed anymore.
Aurora, Va tech, Tucson, Charleston, ghetto shootings, cops on people, people on cops, Sandy Hook, Orlando, Fort Hood. When is enough enough?
