These aren’t even the words I wanted to use, but I hope it gets your attention. See the great NPR link below. In the meantime, here’s the brilliant, wealthy NRA CEO/Lobbyist Wayne LaPierre’s recent comment:
“What they want are more restrictions on the law-abiding — think about that,” LaPierre said. “Their solution is to make you, all of you, less free. They want to sweep right under the carpet the failure of school security, the failure of the family, the failure of America’s school systems and even the unbelievable failure of the FBI.”
Law-abiding? Haven’t we shown the last mass murders at schools and religious institutions aren’t done by law-abiding citizens?
Our genius president wants to arm teachers who are comfortable with weapons and even give them a bonus. And now he just said, “I really think the NRA wants to do what is right.”
Right is left. Up is down. How has this become normalized? Why is it easier to drive a car than get a weapon of mass destruction? Why is that a silly question? It makes one a — socialist!? No, but it’s not such a bad concept, just another discussion.
Our children and grandchildren are murdered at school, but don’t make any common sense regulation. Rant and rave. Change the subject to porn and mental health. Well there are two subjects many radical white republicans are qualified to discuss.
Yeah, I think the dumbing down of society is a remarkable success.
