Response to MrScorpio (Reply #4)

Sat Jul 21, 2012, 12:24 AM

82. I know how you feel, MrScorpio. I share that feeling.

I'm sick of this shit. And I'm equally sick of the platitudes and the fine print that always seems to go along with this shit. It's always either "guns don't kill people, PEOPLE kill people!" Or it's "well, it's not possible to have a perfect society, there's no way to be completely safe." Or it's "only a single nutcase, most people are nice people." And that doesn't make it better. Doesn't make it stop hurting. Doesn't stop making you want to bang your head against the wall. Doesn't make those newly dead come back to life. Doesn't dry their loved ones' tears. And saddest of all, it doesn't make guns in general harder to get - and it CERTAINLY doesn't make those abominable assault rifles and 100-bullet magazines less easy to get. It should be easier for a woman to get an abortion in Mississippi than it is for a civilian to get an assault rifle - in ANY state.
