Heartbreaking, Maddening As 14 Lay Dead In Mass Shooting–NRA Does Not Care
I step away from the world for a couple hours to go to a doctors appointment (only muscle strain, no hernia) and listen to music in the car both ways. Once home James and I turn on the computer and my email server is sending countless messages from news operations about another mass shooting.
My heart sank. This time the gun violence took place at a center for people with developmental disabilities.
At the time of the shooting Hillary Clinton happened to be speaking about the need for gun control at a campaign stop in Florida. Given how much gun violence takes place in the country it was not as ironic as it might seem to have an actual series of guns erupt while talking about such violence. This is after all the world that the NRA has designed for you and me.
Per ABC News’ Liz Kreutz. Clinton said, “90 Americans a day die from gun violence, homicide, suicides, tragic avoidable accidents. 33 thousand Americans a year die. It is time for us to say we are going to have comprehensive background checks, we are gonna close the gun show loopholes.”
President Obama also added his thoughts once again to a nation that is filled with sorrow and shame. Sadness for the loss of more lives and utter shame what our nation has been allowed to become with the NRA and their mindless followers in charge.
Obviously our hearts go out to the victims and the families,” Obama said during an interview with CBS News. “The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world, and there’s some steps we could take, not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings, but to improve the odds that they don’t happen as frequently.”
The rest of the world looks at us as ass-backwards when it comes to the number of gun massacres that happen here. Anyone with an ounce of humanity or moral forthrightness can not turn away from the fact that this madness must end.
We know how to do it. We just have to find our collective inner voice and tell the NRA and those who are ass-kissers for their campaign cash that the tail wagging the dog must come to an end.
We know that even now people on terrorists watch lists can get guns and yet the NRA is not in any way concerned enough to work to make such purchases illegal.
Tonight I am sure some sick perverted grin comes over the mug of Wayne LaPierre as he watches the news. No one is going to touch his ‘constitutional rights’. What I have said before, and say again, is that someone should rub his nose into the blood stains of the victims in places such as that in San Bernardio. Let him get a real feel for the gun violence that he works overtime to perpetuate.
