There was a time when our forefathers needed a gun to put food on the table. Those were the ingenious men and women from whom we are descended. They had traps. They had knives. Some of them even had musket loaders and they kept food on the table. They took care of their possessions so they were ready when needed. They fought a war and freed the slaves with the same weapons they used for hunting. If you are not smart enough or adroit enough to kill a deer with something smaller than an AK-15 then you are not smart enough to have a weapon that fires an ungodly amount of bullets in one minute.
And don't hand me that bull shit about a well regulated militia. We have that under the government control. And if you think you are going to over throw the government you are more full of shit than even I give you credit for. (Now I will interject here that if Trump thinks he is going to have a parade at the cost of 30 million dollars because he wants one, then I might go a little ballistic myself.) There is only one way to describe you people that refuse to let any gun laws pass and that is narcassistic morons. Who dies from your gun rights that you so vehemently protect? Innocent people. Young people. Children barely old enough to know what in the hell your gun is.
Send my prayers to Florida! Send my prayers to Las Vegas. Sandy Hook. Columbine. And on and on it goes. The NRA gets richer. Congress pads thier pockets. Everyone's rights is protected except the innocent people who die from the bullets because the background check is a joke. Everyone has a right to keep and bear arms. And we bury our dead! Everyone prays for the victims. They try to figure out what the killer was thinking. But no one does a damned thing! We pass not one law to change anything. NOT ONE!!!! Think about that. Think about that every time you send your kid to school. Think about it when you go to a concert. Think about it when you tuck you baby in bed at night.
The NRA is a powerful agency. They are in the business of selling guns. They are not in the business of protecting any one. They donate more money into the political system then our feeble minds are able to comprehend. They have more Senators and Representatives in their pocket then we can even name. So think about this. There is no way of knowing who the next shooter will be because we can not know inside a person's head. And we can not know where it will happen. We only know that with our gun laws as they now exist, it will happen and it will happen with an AK-15 which is legal to buy and legal to sell.
Pueblo, Colorado is a spot on the map. So is Las Vegas. So was Columbine. So was Sandy Hook. And on and on. It is always too soon to talk. No! It is not too soon...it is too late! People are burying their children. They should be celebrating the little accomplishments, but that hope is gone. Nothing is taken for granted any more. This has got to stop and it has to start with you! One small voice crying in the darkness. One will soon become 2. Two will grow and a movement against the laws of this land will begin. It has too. It will not start in Washington, because those bastards are bought and paid for. It has to start here in our town. In our county.
If you want to pray about something, pray that we can gain control of our country and make it a safe place for our kids to live. The things they face on a daily basis like bullying, hunger, discrimination, homework and peer pressure are bad enough without having to worry about being shot dead because someone just wanted to make a statement.
And if you want to pray about something that hasn't happened yet, pray your baby comes home tonight.
