Only in America…

The list of “celebratory” gunfire incidents in this barely begun year goes on and on and on and on. All over the place, people who would, I am sure, consider themselves “good Americans” whipped out guns and started firing indiscriminately. A lot of people have been shot, a five year old girl was killed. I’m sure everyone one of them would class themselves in the “responsible gun owner” category, too.

People truly need to stop, and take a good look at themselves, and their country. If you were looking at pages of articles about people deciding to whip out loaded guns and fire at will, because holiday, and this was taking place in a different country, how disapproving and condemnatory would you be? This is barely short of insanity, the gun mania in uStates, and it must stop. Dallas (Texas) alone received over 1,000 calls about idiots with guns. Is anyone going to care that a lawmaker was shot in the head? That a five year old child is dead? That scores of other people have been shot? That scores more have been traumatized? That houses have been marked with bullets? What’s it going to take?

This is not greatness. This is idiocy descending into chaotic madness. Go ahead, take a look at all the incidents, then take a very good look at the country which is supposedly so grand.

    Shooting in the air at random shows utter disregard for other beings. I’m stating the fucking obvious. Still it’s done. Fuck the fucking fuck.

    Yeah. I cannot begin to understand just what it is these assholes think they are celebrating by doing this, the ability to kill? That’s nothing to be proud of.

    It’s amazing how much USA celebrations remind me of a Middle Eastern wedding celebrations. The only difference: in Middle East there is a move towards reducing celebratory gunfire.

    Americans don’t consider guns to be dangerous objects; and the more evidence to the contrary, the more firm their belief.
