Dept. of Rage

So. Again.

There's this. Again. Again.

3-2-1:

"Now's not the time to talk about gun control, in this moment of tragedy."
"It was just a lone madman."
"If they'd only had guns, because gun-free zones are dangerous."
"Background checks will bring black helicopters to our doors!"*
"Because Second Amendment!"
"Because Freedom!!"**
"Because Obaaaaaaaama!"
"We'll keep telling our (fewer than advertised) members to shout down opposition. They're cheap."
"We'll keep doing this while the gun and ammo companies keep paying Wayne's and our salaries."


If they like guns so much, I have a suggestion ...

... and the very fact that I just wrote that uncivilized and unforgivable sentence tells you how angry and fucking fed up I am.

Fuck. The. NRA.

And no, this is my journal. This is one of the rare, the very rare, times that I will pull rank. You want to argue about this? Really? Do not tempt me.

* Yes, yes, we know. Your safe full of guns of all types is going to help keep you free from the evil government and their jackboots. In the 21st century. The government that has tanks and drones. Right. You and your camo-wearing buddies just keep on watching "Red Dawn" and wanking off to your little 15-year-old otaku mecha fantasies. Your Second Amendment wet dreams are just that. The Second Amendment - I do not think it means what Wayne LaPierre has told you it means.
**See above.

I was reading about it in the Guardian and came across these numbers:

It is the 45th school shooting in the US for this year alone, and the 142nd since the attack at Sandy Hook elementary school in 2012.

I can't even. What is WRONG with people?

Cowardice on the parts of some; fear on the parts of others; greed on the parts of still more.

Also, massive misunderstanding of the Constitution, massive obliviousness to the unreality of the American "hero/frontier" myth.

More than that, I cannot parse either.
