Republicans unleashed the insane. The insane are murdering everyone they can.

Republicans don't just have blood on their hands. They are covered with it. And America is drowning in it.

Black people, brown people, Jewish people, children, seniors, and anyone in the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn't matter who you are. The Republicans and their gun worshippers have turned America into a killing ground. And it ain't gonna' stop.

How do we put an end to it? The answer is easy. Ban private ownership of guns. How do we do it? We can't. Not until we rid ourselves of the Republican Party.

1. TBH, we'd also need to repeal the 2A in order to accomplish that...

…or at least expand SCOTUS with enough progressives who are as willing to throw out precedent as the current crop is, and rule that the 2A only applies to official militias.

2. Sorry you can't have my right to defend myself

Banning guns isn't the answer. We need to figure out why our society is going crazy lately.

5. (sigh) Other developed countries like us have the same rate of mental illness,

drug problems, gangs, restive minorities, violent video games and movies, etc, etc, etc,

What they don't have is 120 guns for every 100 people in the country.
How about we look at the primary cause of this shit? That would be guns.

"Defend yourself"??? How do the people in those other, developed countries like us manage to defend themselves?... oh, yeah...police and all like that.

8. What good are the police when someone is attacking me or breaking in

In the present moment? Shall I politely request that the home invaders chill for 10-15 minutes while the cops arrive?

9. I hate these circular arguments. If you have a gun in your house, you stand a greater ...

... chance of dying by that gun. And your "self-defense" is an illusion/delusion.
