MAD-A-TUDE-A-THON: No place is safe

We should have signs at every border like McDonald’s: does “One billion killed in mass shootings.”

 

Again. Again. AGAIN.

A man walks into a church in a small town and shoots 26 people dead.

Questions swirl–“Is he is mentally ill?” OF COURSE HE IS MENTALLY ILL. Nobody shoots  innocent people unless they are mentally ill. You know, in case you were wondering about this, wonder no more.

We have become a nation where mass shootings happen, everybody offers prayers and thoughts, a week goes by and all is forgotten. Amnesia sets in. Nothing is done. The people affected are changed forever, and the rest of us all go on as if the event never occurred. And by the way, I include myself in this do-nothing crowd. You know why? Because I don’t know what the fuck to do. I don’t know how to make change here. I feel helpless to make a difference, because I know the almighty power of the NRA. I know that lawmakers can be bought and sold. I know the most this president will do about this situation is tweet about it. And the tweet won’t make sense, either. I know the pro-gun set is holding the second amendment in front of themselves like a bullet proof vest.

Kiss your loved ones goodbye everyday, and wear clean underwear, because there is no place that is exempt from the being the next mass casualty shooting.

  1. No words… I have literally NO WORDS to offer. My Brother was murdered on January 4th of last year in his home and something you said above struck a chord with me. You are right. The rest of the world will move on however these individuals, these family members lives will forever be changed. I don’t know if you are aware of this but one of the Moms from Sandy Hook is a HUGE Anti-Gun Advocate yet her pleas continue to fall on death ears. #guncontrolnow #DoNoHarm
