In one day. Along with others I didn’t even mention.
Just another Saturday in the good ol’ US of A.
So, this is where we are, folks:
“Around one in five Americans report having a family member who was killed with a gun, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation published on Tuesday, underscoring the far-reaching nature of the country’s gun violence epidemic as politicians struggle to tackle the issue—and as the number of mass shootings in 2023 marks the worst start to a year in a decade.” – Forbes
One in five. Let that sink in a minute.
I have a pretty good feeling that all these shooters are not mentally ill, so let’s just stop blaming that.
You wanna know who I think is mentally ill? The governor from South Dakota who “reassured” a group at this weekend’s National Rifle Association convention that her two-year-old granddaughter already possesses a shotgun and a rifle.
That two-year-old’s parents are just as ill, as far as I’m concerned. I mean, does anybody think this is a good idea?
People, we’re obviously not yelling loud enough about this. We need to turn up the volume, and keep it up.
Or, we could just all go get ourselves a gun and just put an end to this.
