I woke up this morning to see that at least 29 human beings were needlessly killed.
We are really screwing up our children. The first day of school is coming up for many and along with FIRE DRILLS they practice ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILLS. The anxiety that children have today are at an all time high.
People went into a Walmart to buy groceries and 20 souls never left.
People went out to a bar to have a drink with friends and 9 souls lay dead on the street.
I was in a Walmart yesterday in New Hampshire and took notice of a few other patrons had guns on them. I noticed the Gun cases and ammunition cases right next to the fishing supplies.
I think it is a safe bet that there were a number of people in the Walmart in El Paso who also had guns on them. The NRA wants you to believe that all we need was more “good guys” with guns. I think we can all see that it is an out right fallacy. The NRA is no longer about gun education but about supporting the gun industry. I have a number of my family members who are members of law enforcement. My wife, my brother and my father. They can tell you that the LAST thing they want to do is go into a shooting scene and not know WHO is the good guy and WHO is the bad guy. All they see is potential danger. You, having your gun in Walmart is not helping the situation.
A Liberal is going to tell you that this is a GUN issue. That there are too many guns on the street.
A Conservative is going to tell you that we have a MENTAL HEALTH problem.
See- it doesn’t have to be one or the other.
What we need is our leaders in Washington to do something on EITHER issue. Have some backbone.
