Could we maybe take a break from insisting that gun control could not have averted this crisis? Could we maybe stop saying that people who really want to kill people will find a way, no matter what the restrictions? Could we maybe, just maybe, look at the bare facts?
A guy killed 26 people – 20 of them kids. He did it with a gun. Also, fewer guns and fewer bullets mean fewer people have, you know, guns.
Tonight, our nation is mourning the deaths of little children. We’ll go out of our way to demonstrate our compassion for the parents and sadness for the loss and horror that someone stalked the halls of an elementary school – an elementary school – and took out the students and the adults who work with them.
I call bullshit.
Until we’re ready to do something about the fact that people stroll about our society with weapons designed to kill, I don’t want to fucking hear it.
