1. A U.S. House Natural Resources Committee meeting can't be complete without guns

7. And Marjorie Greene had a gun raffle the other day.

Talk about "you're not helping".

5. Did I count right? 23 separate shootings in three weeks?

A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state...

Does that map look regulated at all?
None of these people is in a militia, they're not securing anything, and none of us is free when individuals can be judge, jury and executioner because they've had a bad day. If there are this many shootings in our well regulated state militias known as National Guard Units, the press is certainly keeping that quiet.

Why is one group's right to kill other people more important that those people's right to life? Imaginary, yet to be conceived, potential humans have a right to life, but actual living ones don't.

We're not colonies and new states carved out of a wilderness with The Iroquois and Cherokee Nations west of the Appalachians anymore. Not one of those shootings involved muskets. It's not the right to carry arms that bothers me, it's these morons insistence they have a right to shoot their guns whenever they want to. The 2nd Amendment was itself a change. We can have sensible gun safety laws and a 2nd Amendment.

Six people died from the J&J vaccine and the CDC halted its use for further study. Six.

Guess the right people have to be gunned down for anyone to take care enough to take action.

6. What did Josef Stalin say?

The death of one is a tragedy, the death of many is a statistic.

Couldn't be more true now!

8. "If you lie, lie BIG. If you kill, kill MANY."


Preferably millions. (Trump killed half a million)

9. MASS killings? It's the epidemic of hostility and outright hate.

Limit gun ownership and there'd be fewer shooting deaths, but more attacks with other weapons.

It's people with outsized anger toward others, and it's catching.

Btw, this too will pass. I remember an era when it seemed every week there was another mass terrorist murder on the ground, downing of an airliner or hijacking of a cruise ship or airliners.

Then there was the era just before the turn of the century in this nation of serial killers, a lot more than normal.

Again, this too will pass. Reactions are never equal and opposite, but they always are. Angry people don't just incite anger in other people, they incite decent people to action.
