Nashville Mass Shooting Result Of NRA, Americans Must Find Spine To Stop Slaughtering Of Our Children

Time for frank writing.

The Nashville shooting is what happens in America. This is not a phenomenon that occurs in other nations.

This is the result of the NRA which buys congress, raises untold amounts of money, and pressures common sense out of the political conversation.

After every shooting, there are strong words about the need for legislation that would restrict guns in our nation. We have one more reason to grasp why it’s so important they act.

But you and I both know that action is not forthcoming as the NRA has congress shackled. The political landscape is undermined with absurd redistricting that allows for the loud NRA money to shut out the voices of the majority who know what is happening in our communities.

The NRA is thy most dangerous lobbying group in America. Until we all take a public stand and demand another way forward the carnage will continue. And the NRA wants gun violence to continue so they can use their power to leverage more gun sales for manufacturers.

The bullshit response of ‘guns don’t kill, people kill’ gags the nation like rotten eggs left in a car in mid-July. Only the most severely uneducated rube or overly blind partisan would ever make such a stupid claim.

I think the top lobbyists and promoters of the NRA should be taken to the Nashville school and have their noses rubbed in the mess that remains on the floor of the school. Let them smell the results of the deranged policies they advocate.

Make those same NRA leaders attend every single funeral for the students.

Let the NRA explain to the locals of this community why gun interests are more important than the national interest.

Better yet perhaps someone from the NRA brain trust might suggest why this all could have been avoided had the kids in the Nashville school been armed. Or their teachers. How about the custodian? Clearly, the problem is that there were not enough people with guns!

There is a great need in this nation to no longer allow the tail to wag the dog when it comes to gun control measures. There was a blood-letting in Nashville that will make the headlines, but the NRA is counting on most Americans to forget this horrible story by the time finish their third beer on the couch tonight. The NRA will not be mentioned again until another mass shooting.

And on and on it goes.

The NRA will continue to torpedo gun control legislation and threaten politicians. The NRA will use the brain-dead who repeat the crap they spew to bluster on right-wing media.

Spring will turn to summer. 2023 will turn to 2024. More guns will continue to be sold, and countless rounds of ammunition will be bought. Untold amounts will be fired. And we all know that some of those will be fired into innocent kids, like what happened in Nashville. Obliterating their bodies so they are hard to identify by their parents.

We need to find our collective spine as Americans on this issue, stand up, and demand from our legislators that they also find theirs. Our nation is too important to allow the games the NRA plays to continue.

If you think I am wrong talk to a parent of a dead child in Nashville.

  1. Well told. It ties in with what l wrote on January 7, 2021: The GOP should be outlawed as a terrorist organization. The Germans did it with the Nazi Party after World War II. Differentiating between the Nazi Party and today’s GOP is just splitting hairs.

    1. Thanks for your comment. The radicalized right-wing in the United States has blown past all sense of reason and logic and now applaud and approve comments that if Jesus had an assault weapon he would not have been crucified…….which then undermines the foundations of evangelical churches. But when it comes to saying and doing anything nothing deters Christofascists.

      The GOP should be outlawed as a terrorist organization.

      OUTLAW the whole because of the actions of a few?

      My-o-my-o-my; the deeply viscid irony (of which you’re cluelessly oblivious) through which you had to slog to type that!

      A broad smile of supremely self-gratifying satisfaction creases the face of a failed Austrian artist, who, if there is indeed Karma, is burning eternally in Hades.

      And nothing…NOT_ONE_PEEP about the shooter, or their background?
