Another mass shooting overnight, this time in Kenosha, Wisconsin at the Somers House Tavern … 3 people dead, 2 injured. Preliminary reports say the suspect wasn’t “cooperating with management” and was asked to leave but returned a short time later and opened fire. The suspect is still at large as of this writing. That makes 151 mass shootings so far this year, with 12,635 people dead by guns in just 108 days in the so-called ‘United’ States. If we’re so damned united, then why are we killing each other at an astronomical rate???
The 2nd Amendment is the single worst mistake the framers of the Constitution made back in 1787. I understand the rationale back then, but times have changed, technology has made guns far more lethal than the Founding Fathers could have imagined even in their wildest dreams, and it’s time to remove the 2nd Amendment. In my opinion, there is NO REASON for any law-abiding civilian to own or carry a gun. Period. Full stop.
I’ve heard all the excuses and they all ring false in my ears. Self-defense? Bullshit. Hunting? The killing of animals for sport should be a felony that carries a life sentence. There are a lot of good people in this nation … they don’t own guns. There are a lot of lunatics in this nation … they own arsenals.
I’m past the point of arguing for ‘sensible gun legislation’. The gun nuts in this country have turned me into a fire-breathing dragon and I will settle for nothing less than the complete and total repeal of the 2nd Amendment. The gun nuts had an opportunity to act reasonably, to support sensible legislation such as a ban on assault weapons, more stringent background checks, testing and licensing … but instead they put their desire to own bigger and better killing machines ahead of our lives. So now, they should lose their privileges. How many more people will die with a bullet in their body this year? Will I be one of them … will you? It’s not even safe to go to the grocery store in this country anymore, let alone to a restaurant or bar.
Care to argue with me? I wouldn’t advise it at this moment, else you may walk away with singed hair, for I am a fire-breathing dragon at this moment.
