You read the title correctly. It should be noted that I think American ideals are wonderful…unfortunately, most natural-born Americans don’t really deserve to live here and enjoy them.
Stunningly, nearly four months after the Newtown school massacre where 26 people, including 20 CHILDREN, were mowed down and turned into hamburger by a mentally ill person with high powered automatic pistols, we are still no closer to any reasonable gun control in this terrible country. Are you fucking kidding me? What, exactly, needs to happen before the die-hard gun lobbyists will finally say to themselves, “ok, yeah, we have a problem.” To give you an idea of how utterly insane and self-serving gun lobby groups and their members actually are: their FIRST reaction following the events in Aurora, CO; Madison, WI; and Newtown, CT was not to show any recognizable form of empathy whatsoever…instead they drafted statements regurgitating the same bile they’ve been spitting up for the past [checks watch], ohhh, 30 years, which essentially said the 2nd Amendment is sacred an necessary to protect us all from tyrannical government and “bad guys”.
Following all of these shootings, we were berated with incessant fabricated history lessons of what the founding fathers of this country ACTUALLY intended when they authored the 2nd Amendment. The only mention organizations like the NRA made of the VICTIMS of these shootings were, and I’m paraphrasing, “Jeez, it really sucks that adults and kids get murdered. It really is. But, if only everyone was armed the outcome might have been different.” You know what, fuck you NRA. Fuck you, and fuck the ignorant members of your organization. You’re the minority. Overwhelmingly. I don’t know how a small group like yours (no, you do NOT speak for the majority of gun owners) has the kind of political sway over politicians that you do, but your days are numbered the more often you imbeciles speak. Here’s the ENTIRE text of the 2nd Amendment:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
That’s it. Naturally, for such strict Constitutionalists as yourselves (oddly, 99.999% of whom don’t have a M.S. or Ph.D. in Constitutional law–or any degree of any kind, actually–and who probably get the majority of their knowledge of the world from shit like this), it makes sense to completely ignore the first participle of the SINGLE SENTENCE FRAGMENT (it’s not even an actual sentence) that makes up the 2nd Amendment, and only focus on the part that says your rights to keep and bear arms can’t be violated. Even though, that’s not what it fucking says. In non-crazy world, words have actual meanings. Are you part of a well-regulated, officially sanctioned militia by your state? Didn’t think so. So, technically, you have no right to own a gun at all.
I know, I know. Gun laws don’t stop criminals from owning guns…because they’re criminals. Blah, blah, blah. The same way drunk driving and seat belt laws don’t stop people from doing those things? Oh, but wait, the end game isn’t to ELIMINATE bad outcomes (that’s impossible), it’s to dramatically reduce them. Since our goal is to REDUCE bad outcomes instead of ELIMINATE them, tough anti-drunk driving and seat belt laws have more or less been statistically PROVEN to contribute to the reduction of needless deaths and injuries. But that could nevveerrr work with guns, right? I get the feeling you lunatics don’t WANT a world with less violence, because having one would somehow invalidate your fucking miserable collective existence. You want to know something else? I think we’d all like to see what you clowns will do when we do, eventually, pass comprehensive gun control measures in this country despite your vehement opposition. You won’t do anything, because gun owners are never around to do any of the things they say they can do…like stop shooters. You idiots didn’t even do anything when your government bailed out Wall St who committed fraud and tanked the global economy. Not a peep out of you guys. So you know what, put your money where your mouth is, gun nuts. I fucking dare you to stand up to the full might of the U.S. government…and for what? Because you don’t want to be inconvenienced and take one for the team to save the lives of kids who have no stake in any of this?
