I had another post ready to go, but yet again, our country has faced more violence. Not just violence, but a terrible hate crime as well.
And yet again, I see the flood of #prayfor(the latest shooting), and the “our deepest sympathy” blah, blah, blah, that does absolutely nothing.
This man legally — let me repeat that — legally purchased an assault rifle to commit this heinous act.
In fact, it was this rifle:
It’s an AR-15. Look at it. Just look at it. The NRA says this is used mostly for hunting. Yeah right. I don’t know a single hunter who takes this out into the woods.
You know who actually uses this assault weapon? Let’s see, the Sandy Hook shooter, the Aurora movie theater shooter, the shooters in San Bernadino, and now Orlando. We can’t hide our heads in the sand anymore. The 2nd amendment was never meant to protect this. I would imagine our forefathers would be absolutely horrifed.
You want to have a shotgun and go hunting? Fine. I have no problem with that. And I guess a small firearm for personal protection if that’s your thing.
But who the hell needs a weapon like the above? Who needs something like this? And did you know this is the most wanted gun in America? What the hell?!?!
We’ve got to stop the hand wringing and work stop the insanity. Write your congressman/woman. Write to the White House. Be heard more and more. Vote out the naysayers on banning assault weapons this fall. The only way shit is going to get done about this is if the people make it happen.
