Once again our national firearm nightmare has come home to us in the most violent of ways. 20 Children and 8 adults were killed at the Newton Elementary school in Connecticut. I really am at a loss for words. Over 40 people have been killed in gun spree violence THIS MONTH. We must address the gun laws in the nation, and even more we must deal with our national obsession with violence and guns. This is rare in most Industrialized Nations. Not in ours. I am sick of gun apologists, gun rights advocates, and people who want to further arm the citizenry. Fuck that. We need less guns, not more. We need to make sure that children are NEVER exposed to this sort of violence. And we must always remember that when we see incidents like this on the news a Columbine happens EVERY WEEK in this nation in the inner cities and communities all over the nation. We are a nation at war with ourselves and the only answer that has been given in the media and in Washington is “more guns and less regulation”. FUCK THAT. Guns are the enemy. Guns kill people, but gun cultures lead to mass destruction. I feel for the families and as a brother to 4 siblings, including a 9 year old and a 13 year old, this shakes me deeply to my core. I only hope these families can survive this intact…I only hope they can live in a future without gun violence.
It was a 9mm used. The most common gun in America. Fuck this stupid culture.
