I haven’t posted in awhile and I hate that it’s this topic. Politics is not my bag unless it’s in my stories or artwork. But here we go.
Alright, dip shits, listen up. This goes for everyone that is on the blame train and finger pointing wagon.
Mass shootings / school shootings are not any one political parties’ problem. This is not a prayer problem or lack of it. This is not a transgender/male/female problem.
Let’s call it what it is – this is a mental health issue that runs rampant in this country – it’s the elephant in the room. Everything else is just noise and distractions that cause additional strife and division in this country.
Let’s face it the Second Amendment will never be revoked or changed. Besides criminals or those with mental issues could give two craps about it.
Over 50% of crimes in this country are committed by stolen weapons or weapons that have changed hands more than three times. Stolen weapons aren’t traceable and unfortunately in this case these guns were purchased legally from 5 different stores despite her suffering from an emotional problem.
Which is the main issue in this country – the mental health status of people purchasing weapons. And until that is addressed, more of these shootings will take place whether it’s copycat killers or suicide by cop or fame glory or whatever other sick evil reasoning is out there.
WHEN OWNING FIREARMS IS CONCERNED, THERE HAS TO BE ACCOUNTABILITY WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY
SAFE STORAGE AND IF NOT – YOU LOSE YOUR LICENSE AND CHARGED WITH THE CRIME AS WELL IF THE WEAPON IS TAKEN FROM YOUR POSSESSION.
MANDATES OF GUN OWNERS AND SHOPS TO REPORT A MISSING OR STOLEN GUN WITHIN 24HRS. BECAUSE RIGHT NOW THERE ISN’T ONE.
GUN SHOPS HELD LIABLE FOR CRIMES COMMITTED WITH THEIR SOLD WEAPONS AS WELL AS THE GUN MANUFACTURER?
HERE ARE SOME NUMBERS FROM 2021
45,034 deaths from gun violence
692 Mass Shootings that you didn’t hear about
28 Mass murders
321 people are shot every day in the US • 210 Survive • 111 Die = 42 Murders a day by firearms & 65 Suicides a day by firearms
IF YOU ARE A GUN OWNER, LOCK YOUR SHIT UP!
I pray for the families who have lost a loved one in any of these ways. Until then, be nice, be kind, be accepting to each and everyone. Accept differences, accept uniqueness, accept one another, accept ideas and opinions. Help others. Be up-lifting. Be positive, be open and present. Be aware.
One has to start somewhere. A good place is to treat others how you would like to be treated.
