In case you’re wondering why I want to leave the human race


It’s another school shooting, with one dead, 7 injured, and all the children evacuated traumatized.

We will do nothing.

Again.

Oh, a few things will be done: the conspiracy theorists will scream “False flag!” and the NRA will insist that the cure is more guns, and Republicans will block any attempt to regulated guns. Fuck ’em all.

    Don’t forget the Bible-humpers who’ll insist that this shooting only happened because we don’t make student’s pray to their cosmic dictator and that we teach them that we “come up from monkeys” in biology class.

    So yeah, fuck ’em all.

    I’m hitting the bottom of the slippery slope the NRA postulates about regulating guns.
    I’m ready to nullify 2nd Amendment with another amendment repealing it.
    Regulators keep bashing into the 2nd Amendment argument and no matter how carefully worded around it, they never get enacted because of the false slippery slope argument.
    I think we need to flip the burden, repeal the 2nd amendment so ownership and usage proponents have the burden of crafting arguments to allow their use.
    IE, Make the automobile analogies more literal: With no Right to drive a car, people don’t object to all the regulations around them. Gun ownership in this 21st Century is a Privilege, not a Right
    Repealing the 2nd can’t be that much harder than enacting regulations, given how difficult the latter has been.

    America’s “Tree of Liberty” is apparently watered with the blood of patriots, tyrants, and children.

    I miss the days when young men who wanted attention just learned to play guitar or drums #InternetRuinedEverything

    Never been a less slippery slope in all of existence, literal or figurative.

    I am totally in favor of the original meaning of the second ammendment. Anyone should be able to buy all of th 18th century style guns they want. Anything else, though, should be completely regulated.

    Thoughts and prayers for the thousands and thousands of children killed by Saudi Arabia with the support of our government.
    You don’t see that on the news very often yet it’s so much worse.

    This didn’t even make the front page of the BBC. Currently there’s:
    A story about safer building cladding to public housing
    A man getting fired from a radio show for making racist comments about the new royal baby.
    A reflection on the London Bridge attacks
    A quote from the Leader of the Opposition
    A footballer banned from driving for using a mobile phone whilst driving
    Another royal baby story
    developments in a missing persons case
    The Pope ordering clergy to report sex abuse
    A bungling of a prize draw by a footballer
    A senior minister announcing her intentions to run for leader
    Updates on the South African Election
    A woman committed suicide after ‘pension error’
    and
    A story about a robot boat collecting oysters

    A mass school shooting in America isn’t even considered newsworthy any more.

    The main reason why most civilized countries do not have an article like the 2nd amendment is that it is a slippery slope to daily basis mass shootings.

    The US are at the bottom.

    In other horrible US news, the courts have kept Chelsea Manning in prison in solitary confinement for months for refusing to testify to a grand jury. They just released her, but issued another subpoena for a different grand jury immediately afterwards for the same questions. It’s just cruel torture at this point.
