Sandy Hook Elementary School
Sad that it takes an event like today's to bring me back to my site. But the madness that is guns can no longer be ignored. I can't sit idly by on the sidelines anymore.
27, 28 dead. Maybe 18 children, maybe more. Teachers too. Does the number matter other than the fact that larger numbers get more news coverage? Larger numbers also must give the shooter some sense of accomplishment. There is after-all an ongoing challenge to be in the record books as the #1 mass murderer in US history.
But maybe it really is a secret NRA award that much like terrorists dying to make it to paradise and the 72 virgins, the NRA member with the most deaths notched on his gun at his death will spend eternity in the company of other second amendment freaks. In their version of heaven, every man has a gun which he uses to shoot women and children who disobey.
So, I really can't think of much so say. Guns don't kill! NRA contributions Kill by prolonging the madness that is unregistered gun ownership in the USA.
