At least 26 people were killed in Sunday's church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said at a press conference.
(I wrote this rant on Sunday and shelved it out of respect. I guess several days makes it the “right time”…)
“If you’re angry and you know it grab a guitar. It’s really much more fun than a gun…”
It sounds better (Even the worst guitar playing…typically performed by gun owners, is superior). PLUS no one was ever killed by guitar! Except for that one guy who was killed with a guitar…tragically. But in the guitar’s defense, it only took one life before it exploded into a thousand pieces like a Pete Townshend Telecaster.
“…If you’re angry and you know it, then your face will surely show it. If you’re angry and you know it grab a guitar…and not a gun.”
WASHINGTON, BUY BACK AND MELT THE GUNS NOW!
PERMANENTLY BAN ALL COMMERCIAL MILITARY-STYLE LONG GUNS!
PERMANENTLY BAN ALL HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES!
STRICTLY LIMIT GUN & AMMUNITION PURCHASES PER PERSON BASED ON NEED!
REQUIRE REGISTRATION, INSURANCE AND LICENSING ON ALL FIREARMS!
FUND CDC RESEARCH ON GUN VIOLENCE!
BIG GUN and BIG PHARMA are not our friends! In different but similar ways both choose to exploit our fear, weakness, vulnerability and ignorance to get us high and get us hooked. WHY? Because it keeps them in the black. It keeps them in the country club. It keeps them on a yacht. It keeps them in power. They crave power because they are greedy. ARE WE GOING TO LET THE GREEDY MAKE OUR DECISIONS FOR US (they just might decide to take all our shit, ya know. It kind of makes sense that they would, if you think it through). They wield inexhaustible wealth and our politicians are cheap dates. Once the politician is bought, they will parrot supplied talking points and kill all “regulation” unless it is written for them by their masters. Even if they are honorable, they will keep their mouths shut out of fear of BIG GUN and BIG PHARMA bankrolling their political opponents.
STAND UP AGAINST BIG GUN AND BIG PHARMA. SHAME THEM AS THE DEATH MERCHANTS THEY ARE AND DRIVE THEM, AND THEIR BOUGHT POLITICIANS, OUT OF WASHINGTON.
OUR GOVERNMENT IS FOREVER COMPROMISED UNTIL THE ELECTORAL SYSTEM IS FIREWALLED FROM BIG MONEY! THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN UNDER A “REPUBLICAN” ADMINISTRATION. RUTH BADER GINSBURG, STAY ALIVE! CITIZENS UNITED MUST BE OVERTURNED!
ALL PEOPLE OF CONSCIENCE AND EMPATHY MUST COME TOGETHER TO END THE ERA OF GUN AND PILL MERCHANT CONTROL. VOTE AGAINST THE NRA, BIG GUN AND BIG PHARMA WHEREVER AND WHENEVER YOU CAN.
LASTLY, a thank you to INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS. Please keep the spotlight laser focused on these cockroaches. You are an ESSENTIAL pillar of American greatness.
