It’s Really Simple, You Guys

 

“Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.”

Yeah. With guns. 

Just curious, how many people do you think would have been killed this weekend in El Paso, Texas or Dayton, Ohio by bow and arrow, or machete, or knives, or anything other than guns?

How tough is this for you to get, gun lovers? Sure, people are responsible, and their actions are reprehensible, but their weapon of choice, over and over, is guns.

Or you, Congress? How many human lives is your continued impotence worth? I’d love for you all to travel to El Paso and Dayton, and explain to all the families who lost loved ones there why you can’t be more aggressive on gun control. I know that would go over really well.

I am so f*****g fed up with people making excuses. There is no excuse for this endless parade of gun victims.

Yes, GUN victims. Killed by guns.

When, when, when will that sink in?

 

Oh, and I love how He Who Shall Remain Orange denounced the shootings this weekend, saying, “Hate has no place in our country.” More hypocritical words have never been spoken.

  1. Larry, I share your anger. My partner’s son has an arsenal of weapons. I asked, “Why do you need military style guns?” He answered, “Just in case.” What the hell are these people expecting? And if they are correct, they will never match the fire power coming down on them. Good post, my friend.

  2. Every time I heard some Trumpist talk about video games encouraging violence, I thought, Will we see a 21st Century equivalent to “Seduction of the Innocent” … the book that destroyed horror comics ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seduction_of_the_Innocent ). I loved those stories. Then, some jerk of a psychiatrist decided that because kids in juvenile detention read comics, comics MUST cause juvenile delinquents. In 1954, the comics industry created the “Comics Code” to avoid government censorship and the horror comics disappeared. Fortunately, the superhero comics survived … so that I could prove that a 74 year-old Ph.D. still loves his weekly trip to the comic book store.
