They used to wear hoods. Now they carry concealed.
There’s no such thing as Responsible Gun Owners. Just like there’s no such thing as National Security or Diet Soda. It’s a lie, an expensive lie linked to depression. But we’re all going along with the lie, as if we need to be told to get out of the Drive-Thru.
Where are the grown-ups? What happened to the grown-ups?
We’ve abdicated responsibility.
Responsible Gun Owners would turn over their weapons until we sort through the nightmare of Stand Your Ground. Responsible Gun Owners would stop having glamorous fantasies about violent revolution and get down to the unglamorous grind of running a democracy. Responsible Gun Owners would shop for meat at Safeway.
Enough hunting, there’s plenty of meat to go around. And it’s shrink-wrapped.
We’ve become a nation of kid killers.
Aaron Swartz is dead.
Matthew Shepard is dead.
Emmett Till is dead.
There are 20 dead 6 & 7 year olds we dishonor every step we take further away from the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School without doing one damn thing to change.
No more thoughts. No more prayers. I want actions and laws. If I can’t get actions and laws, I want a constitutional amendment against politicians offering thoughts and prayers.
If they won’t lead, I will.
I hereby decree Stand Your Ground shall be re-named Stand Your Fucking Ground. I hereby decree FCC Regulations shall be re-written ipso facto to facilitate the free expression of Stand Your Fucking Ground, which I hereby decree shall be discussed in earnest, for a fucking change, with no bleeps, on MSNBC, CNN and FOX MOTHER FUCKING NEWS.
