If the two sides can't sit down and behave like adults, fuck it. I told my husband last nite, if they're going to behave like children then we'll have to take their toys away. I've been a 2nd Amendment supporter my entire life. I can't stand any more of this. I don't need a gun. I've been threatened by the asshole rednecks in the town where I live, but they're so damned old and confused I could throw a rock and knock them down. I've had my apartment broken into three times, I don't live there anymore. I used to love target shooting. I have computer games.
I took that slingshot from my kid, as a matter of fact. He got it back after proving to me that he could be responsible. But, if he had thrown a tantrum and insisted that it was his right to endanger every living thing in our home and neighborhood? That slingshot would have gone into the garbage. Most of the people I've talked to are reasonable in their arguments. Sadly, it's the loudest ones that are getting the most attention.
Those loud mouths aren't worth another life. This shit needs to be addressed sanely and logically. Not with stupid memes or sarcasm.
