Just Another Massacre

The massacres of children and students is a price ammo-sexual gun fetishists are willing to pay.......and as we process yet another senseless act of mass violence, remember that guns don't kill people, people with guns kill people: kids with guns, young black gang bangers with guns, white racists with guns, mentally ill people with guns, drifters with guns, domestic abusers with guns, criminals, black and white, with guns, disaffected radicalized white racist teens with guns, disaffected radicalized religious extremists with guns, sociopaths with guns, Aryan nation militia separatists with guns, careless neighbors with guns, disgruntled former employees with guns, drunken morons with guns, ammosexual gun fetishists with lots and lots of guns, compensatory chickenhawk-over-eager-wanna-be soldiers with guns, paranoid secessionists with guns, racist cops with guns, poorly trained cops with guns, drug dealers with guns...............if only there were a common factor we could identify and address........ * * * * * * * As is our custom after a massacre, the country will enter a 3-day period of mourning - which will be followed by an extended time of denial, wringing of hands claiming nothing can be done, and political bickering-- until the next one at which time we will start over. * * * * * * * * * The NRA announced today a 10 year plan to move the needle on gun deaths. "In 2010, the latest years for which we have casualty statistics, there were 11,708 gun homicides in the U.S. and 606 accidental gun deaths," said an NRA spokesperson. "We are convinced that we can reverse that trend and move us toward a world in which accidental gun deaths equal and exceed gun homicides by the year 2025. The NRA is committed to a world in which a child is far more likely to be accidentally shot and killed by a loved one or an underage sibling playing with a handgun than by a deranged, mentally unstable, sociopath with an AR-15. This is our vision. The NRA and the gun industry will pledge to increase our production and sales from the current 5,000,000 weapons each year to 10,000,000. With that additional 50,000,000 new guns introduced into our country in the next 10 years, we believe accidental deaths will approach if not exceed the numbers of gun homicides. Only in America is this an achievable goal." * * * * * * * Today the nation struggles with idea that 300,000,000 guns in the United States has anything to do with gun violence. * * * * * * * In politics: House Speaker candidate Kevin McCarthy congratulated the House Select Committee on Benghazi for bringing down Hilary Clinton's poll numbers. * * * * * * * And it appears, according my research on Politifact, a noted fact checking organization, that even though 14 Republican candidates for President have been chattering almost nonstop 24/7 for months now, not a single one has said a single thing that is rated as "true" ..........unless, I might add, you count them calling each other stupid, narcissistic, out of touch, vain, unrealistic, vapid, delusional, and dumb. * * * * * * * * In local news, Con-job-Agra will leave a bitter taste in Omaha's mouth -- which, btw, is not a good thing for a food company. It feels like a 26-year-long one-night-stand. ConAgra to Omaha - "It's not you; it's me. We can still be friends."

Right on target with your gun commentary--you always hit the bullseye!

Con-Agra's moving out is really shocking to me! I thought for sure they'd bully the city and the state around to get the privelege of operating tax-free for another 10 or 15 years like they did the last 2 times, before they'd ever "pull out." (Licentious pun, and references to "nation building" as in Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Central America, South America, etc., intended.) Anyway, it's always sad to see such a good corporate citizen move away!
