absurd-a-thon day 710: here we are AGAIN

We’re shooting the next generation in the head.

Is there even anything left to say about another school shooting?

It’s just another day in America.

I noticed that even the Facebook posts ignored this news, like it was just another stupid thing Trump spat out. (And btw, Donald, how ‘about you gather all the guns and DEPORT THOSE.)

It seems to be ok now to take out your anger/depression/lonliness/issuedujour with artillery on the campus of a school.

While our flimsy gun laws are part of the reason, there has to be something else at play, too. Have video games, where the object is to kill as many people as we can, de-sensitized us to the point of thinking this is a real answer to real problems? Is the stigma of being mentally ill so enormous and shameful that we do everything we can to ignore it? is getting help for depression so expensive and hard to come by that we just don’t bother to even try? ARE POLITICIANS TOO FUCKING DIVIDED TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS PROBLEM?

Since Sandy Hook’s December 2012 shooting, there have been 142 school shootings in America.

Next time it could be your child. It could be mine.

Think about what we can do as a community, as a country. This has got to stop before it becomes acceptable. Or has it already?
