Guns, News, Shooting

Newton School Shooting: 28 Dead

gun-violence_0

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.

    I agree, the problem is if someone really wants a gun they are going to get it. If they can’t get it legally they will get it other ways. What is sad is these criminals provide people with guns knowing if they are willing to go to these extremes to get one they must be planning something terrible. I feel so bad for the parents of those children, their lives were taken before they began. Something needs to be done, all of this senseless violence. I have a 5 year old a 6 year old and 7, and I would lose my mind if something happened to them. My prayers are with the families and hopefully he burns for eternity for what he has done. Poor babies…

        These schools need to invest some money into security, what are cameras and reporting to the office going to do to ensure our children’s safety.

    • “I agree, the problem is if someone really wants a gun they are going to get it. If they can’t get it legally they will get it other ways.” Everyone keeps saying this but that’s only because we live in a country over saturated with guns. No one is saying that no one will ever be able to find an illegal firearm again if they are super determined and have the money to do it but that does not mean it makes sense to just go ahead and continue to make them easily accessible. Guns are not nearly as easy to smuggle in as drugs are and they can’t be easily produced in a microwave or by throwing some plants in the basement. I think if we at least get rid of the automatic and semi-automatic weapons, that would be a good thing.

      No civilians NEED an automatic weapon.

        “No civilians NEED an automatic weapon.” Thank you for this. You are totally correct in your assessment
