1. We have a GUN CRISIS in this country

Bob Costas was correct with where he was going with this...the sentiment is growing and more and more realize we have to speak up. We were told yesterday was the day we couldn't talk about it. So, that means we can't talk about it today either? If not today when?

Start early, and often because this will be a long, hard struggle.

7. Be vigilant...

but we can't live in fear. The fear creates the background for misinformation and mental illness. It is terrible now and guns are completely out of control in America. But the worst is that the minds of Americans are being twisted by these events. Fear is as much an enemy as the far right gun advocates. Fear is what the killers play on; it's their food. Don't give in to them. Be strong and empowered against the evil that undermines humanity.

4. I rarely use the F word simply because it's so over used... but

This is fucking unbelievable. One after another... what is this, 4 shootings and 2 uncovered plots in a month? I've lost count.

11. Yet, strangely...

... very few of them seem to be here in LBN today. You think they've finally be shamed into silence? Or are they plotting a revolution?

8. This is why the NRA says we can't talk gun control on the day of tragedies

They know that all they have to do is wait a day or so and some other proud gun owner will shoot multiple people and then "we shouldn't talk about gun control on this day" works again.

13. This happens on a regular basis in Mexico, too. But people are not allowed to defend

 

themselves because strict gun control makes it nearly impossible to do so. And did gun control stop Brevik in Norway?

14. Reuters said he had an assault rifle

But - as all gun nuts know- it really wasn't an assault rifle.

So it's OK

yup
