The Republican Party has been shilling the lie about Family Values and their desire to protect them for years. Most sane people have seen through this lie for a long time. All you have to do is look at the number of mass shootings in our country to see they don’t mean a word of it.
Our children are part of what we are supposed to protect in their “Family Values” rhetoric. Since the Republicans are the main culprits who oppose reasonable gun control, it proves beyond reasonable doubt that Family Values means nothing to them at all. They are simply lying to get the crazies votes.
It is time to call them out for not protecting “family values” like they say they are. It is time to put a stop to all of this nonsense before we lose an entire generation of children. If it sounds like I am angry, you are right. I am angry. This does not have to happen in our country.
Nor, does reasonable gun control mean we have taken guns away from citizens. It simply means we can at least make an attempt to keep them out of the hands of people who should not be allowed to carry weapons. It means we can finally show our children that their parents are actually adults interested in protecting them from the evil in the world.
And stop giving me those lame excuses about how “stuff happens” and the Second Amendment and your right to protect yourself and the murder rate in cities like Chicago. That is all cover for not addressing the issues that need to be addressed that you don’t want addressed. It is BULLSHIT! None of those arguments have anything to do with these shootings. And, don”t tell me that States have the answer, because States are at the heart of what is happening due to their lax gun laws! In other words, the States are not the solution to the problem, the States ARE the problem.
For example, where do most of the guns that are used in murder in cities come from? Answer: States that do not require proper background checks when purchased online or at gun shows! Then transported to the cites. That is where they come from.
Also, have you notice that the vast majority of these mass killers all got their guns “legally?” That alone should tell you something is wrong with how we allow guns to be purchased in this country. Every time something like this happens, the gun nuts claim that the person who committed this act suffered from mental illness and it wasn’t the “gun’s” fault. They then tell you that there is no need for universal background checks to try to keep these guns from falling into the hands of those with mental illness.
For once I agree with the gun nuts. It isn’t the fault of the gun. It is the fault of the gun nuts, the NRA, the gun manufacturers, and politicians who won’t stand up to these wackos. The blood of every dead child, every murdered person, and every suicide that was the result of gun shot lies at their doorsteps! They are the ones allowing these disturbed people to purchase guns to carry out their heinous crimes. They are guilty of abetting the murder of our children and citizens!
We are going to hear the same old bullshit from the right-wing about gun “rights.” But you will not hear about your right live freely without the worry of being shot by some nut allowed to purchase a gun legally. Stop listening to them, and fight back. Remember, the blood of our children are on their hands!
This time instead of “offering your prayers” to the victims, show a little backbone and stand up to the gun manufacturers, the NRA and the gun nuts and let us finally do something to stop the madness! As you can see from the proliferation of these tragic events, your child could be next, or even the next mass shooter! How will you be able to live with that if you are willing to do nothing?
