could someone please explain how a petition this bad gets so many signatures?
i mean, really? 45,000 signatures? i'm kind of..embarassed for humanity?
all it says is please don't make more gun laws, which is preposterous, of course they will make more, and there obviously aren't enough now.
its just a mess. condescending, full of factual and conceptual errors. that plastic and steel thing is just bizarre. last time i checked video games also involve some amount of plastic and steel...um?
i can only understand the 3rd to last sentence there as some sort of Lovecraftian glimpse into the subterranean horrors of some sort of timeless nonsensical evil
"a feeding frenzy of new gun legislation" has to be one of the worst metaphors i've ever heard
we petition the obama administration to:
We ask President Obama to support law abiding gun owners in this time of tragedy.
We ask President Obama to stand with law abiding gun owners in this time of tragedy. Guns laws could not have prevented Adam Lanza from killing 27 innocents. The real question is what made this disturbed young man into a murderer of children. Where is the outrage at the violent video games he played? A piece of plastic and steel doesn't have a will Mr. President. Evil is not law abiding, and Adam Lanza stole those guns after failing to buy one legally. it is America's law abiding gun owners who would have died with Victoria Soto and Dawn Hochsprung defending the children with only our bodies on December 14th, because it was already illegal to bring a gun into that school. Please don't pander to the politics Mr. President. A feeding frenzy of new gun legislation is not the answer.

...I didn't mean to start something.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.
