We all know details about the Las Vegas Shooting this past week. The glorification of the shooter, whose name I will never commit to memory because that’s really what was his end goal. The news outlets are looking for reasons why this happened. Let me narrow it down for them. These guns and ammunition should never have been made available to anyone not serving in the Military or Law Enforcement. They serve no real purpose to the average American. You can not use them for hunting or safety. Why did this White, middle-aged man lose his buttons? What was his motive? It’s simple, he wanted to be noticed. Thanks to the glorification of the News Media he will be.
Members of Congress have offered prayers and episodes of shock about what happened. Really? When you vote to make it easier for people to access weaponry they shouldn’t you aren’t allowed to feign shock and sadness. After Sandy Hook we thought this would have been addressed…after Pulse Nightclub Shooting, we thought this would be addressed…now after Las Vegas Massacre, we think this will be addressed. The truth is the WHORES of Congress lay in bed with the NRA and like lobby groups. They take money for their deeds so that does indeed make them Whores.
The White House’s response is “It’s not the time to talk about gun control”. Really Mr. Trump…when is it the right time…when one of your children are placed in the same situation those concert goers were?
I believe in the Constitution, which is why I believe in the Second Amendment. I also believe that if you own a gun for protection and you can’t defend yourself with 6 bullets, you probably shouldn’t own a gun.
Sean Hannity over at Fox News believes if he was there…outside the hotel room and the guy wasn’t able to shoot anymore bullets then he could have taken him out because he is trained in the use of firearms. Um…What?!?
The truth is that this shooter had multiple weapons. Some were modified to fire hundreds of rounds. Another person with a gun would never have survived an encounter with this shooter. The body count would have been greater. You see a psycho/sociopath look for these moments to show just how over the edge they can be.
To all those who think owning a gun will make you safer…that’s the true delusion. You are more likely to be killed with your own gun than by someone else with a gun. Congress didn’t learn when Steve Scalise was shot. All they took out of that shooting was the man didn’t like Conservatives.
When will the killing stop? Never. When Congress did nothing of value after the slaughter of Children at Sandy Hook that was the moment we all should have realized that the NRA own our Congress and our weak and ineffectual President drools over the organization because of his insecurity of a lack of perceived masculinity.
How about, as Americans we answer the question…”Why did this tragedy happen?” The answer is…”It happened because Auto/Semi Automatic weaponry and ammunition shouldn’t be available for legal purchase.
Truth is it won’t stop murders from happening but it will stop the wholesale slaughters like those that happened in Las Vegas, Sandy Hook and Orlando.
