VIDEO: Gun Violence Starts Morning As Two TV Journalists Shot Dead On Air

Out of control gun violence again makes news as two television journalists were shot dead on the air this morning in Virginia.

To say this is shocking and sickening is like spitting into the wind that blows off Lake Monona.    We all should be outraged and royally pissed off that this bloody senseless slaughter continues because some whiney NRA types can not fathom how to deal with their short penis and so need to carry weapons.   I am not sure what needs to happen to wake this nation up.

For now WDBJ7 TV reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were killed during an interview in Moneta, Bedford County.  They paid the price so the NRA can tout their lies and spin their crap.

We must do better as a nation to stop this violence from guns.

Upcoming Frontline Program: How The NRA Works To Stop Gun Legislation

Frontline, a PBS news magazine will examine this issue on Wednesday August 5th. In Madison the program will air at 10:00 P.M. Viewers in other areas need to check local listings.

One of the sadder spectacles in congress is how the National Rifle Association with a ton of cash and a limitless supply of politically charged brute force has been able to stymie needed gun legislation.   This year alone—up to the time of this posting–there have been over 190 shootings of four people or more in this nation.   Even more telling, concerning the dark side of the NRA’s political operation, is that polling shows nearly 74% of National Rifle Association members “support requiring background checks for all gun sales.”

But people do not matter to the leaders of the NRA. Not even the concern of their members.

This reminds me of the outlandish and deadly brand of religion known as Wahhabism. That is a most bizarre and austere form of Islam that insists on a literal interpretation of the Koran. Much like religious radicals, so too does the NRA act illogically, as they promote a pure austere form of political control concerning the Second Amendment.

Time and again deadly gun violence is reported in the headlines and yet nothing happens to allow for our nation to resemble other developed ones around the globe who do not constantly have to bury tens of thousands of their citizens each year from guns.

What is the problem?
