We need to have a reckoning with our gun laws. They kill a lot of people, and that’s all a gun does. I’m appalled at the carnage these tools dole out. Countless gun owners have done a good job shooting themselves and their loved ones. Kids get into their parent’s guns and shoot their siblings. Unstable people shoot dozens of people with ease. Police shoot innocent people all the time. It’s the gun, you dumb motherfuckers, that makes all this death possible.
This is not the purpose of bearing arms. Now I know there is a court decision contravening what I’m saying, but our gun owners do not constitute a well-regulated militia. They’re the furthest thing from being disciplined.
One lawmaker has an answer to the crisis: God. Of course.
“It is the soul that is corrupt and how we get back to a moral rebirth in this country, I don’t know,” Allen told the state’s appropriations committee on Tuesday, who didn’t really ask. Her idea is that guns don’t kill people, blackened souls kill people.
Ah, but that gobbledegook isn’t the kicker. Wait for it…
“We are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have. We should probably be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth,” Allen added.
What is she trying to say? Because I’m not a gun owner, and never will be. You can get fucked if you tell me to go to church because the very rights that I don’t exercise and rights you want to protect are literally killing this country.
How about you just send the armed? Because of all people, they could stand to use a little restraint. And clergy, please devote some time to things like locking your guns up and perhaps throw a little weapons cleaning lesson in there.
So: more guns, more God. I live in the most fucked up place and time.
