Feeling the Bern

It's January 7th. We've have six mass shootings this year alone! Six. Gun Humpers are rejoicing [View all]

Yes, everyone. More guns has made us fucking safer! I repeat that again. People who like to jack off on their guns and think the 2nd amendment (well, the second part of that poorly written amendment) is more important than our rights to live free of trying to figure out which asshole with a murder enabler will take it out and litter the place with hot lead because some jacked off his dog to his favorite porno movie.

And before I get the usual NRA talking points I get one here, I am a hunter. I owned guns. I'm not one of these asswipes who near fired one in my life. Shit, I earned my rifling merit badge in the boy scouts. I owned a shotgun, a winchester and a colt .45 revolver.

These gun humping trolls think they are under attack. Nope, you people won. Guns are easier to legally buy now than alcohol. You have brainwashed an entire nation into thinkin background checks and gun control are some Communist plot to strip you of your liberty. It isn't, but who needs facts when you have groupthink and bullshit? Then will come the other asshole line of "well, you can't stop crazy." I've lived in foreign countries the last ten years. Why do we have more mass shootings? GUNS, MOTHERFUCKER!!! After that will we get the idiot claptrap "well, this happening proved gun control fails." Following that logic, we should not have laws because murderers prove laws stopping murder don't work. Thieves prove laws stopping robbery don't work. JAywalkers prove laws demanding crosswalks don't work.

I only hope a relative of yours isn't killed in one of these acts. Well, in a way, maybe I do. As you cry and grieve and ask why, I will tell you not to step on my rights to own a gun. Your loved one is less important than my right to own something that and turn a building into swiss cheese. Of course, good manners tells me to console you, but if you are a gun humper, I'll just walk away saying that your fighting of modest gun caused it to happen. You should be happy. Your dead loved one is proof you were right and I was wrong!

I am so fucking sick of this argument. We are a scared, stupid, macho country with loads of guns. This is a bad combination. Since you can't stop people from making babies (China tried and it really didn't work out well) since anyone with a pussy and a dick can make a screaming kid, we control the access to murder enablers. Cue the knife and car argument.

Knives have multi-functions. So do cars. Guns have one: KILL! I don't see people using a AR-15 for a hammer or driving their Glocks to the gas station to fill up the magazine.

Six mass shootings in seven days. This country truly is a drug addict. Only until we hit rock bottom will we change. But we still haven't gotten there. And with all these fucking trumpers, gun humpers, racist, sexists, and assholes, we probably never will.
