What happened in Vegas is disturbing.
The things people are saying and posting on social media is disgusting.
The whole ‘thoughts and prayers’ thing isn’t enough. It doesn’t DO jack shit.
Thoughts and prayers placate people into thinking they’re actually doing something.
Thoughts and prayers aren’t going to keep people safe. They aren’t going to make more strict laws and make it more difficult for guns to get in the wrong hands. The hands of people who open fire on concert goers.
Or people in a nightclub
Or kids in a school.
I’m not dumb. I know guns are always going to end up in the wrong hands and that people are going to use them to harm others.
I know this.
But that doesn’t mean we should make it a cake walk.
It shouldn’t be easier to buy a gun than to buy cold medicine.
Or get in to see a doctor
Or to get a perscription for mother loving birth control pills.
Something has GOT to change.
As one of the most powerful countries in the world, why does this keep happening HERE?
Why can’t we take a page out of other country’s books and get some got dang, mother loving gun control up in this place?!
We elected a reality star/human Cheeto to the position of Commander in Chief. Nothing is impossible.
