Two students at Chardon High School have paid the price for our Right Wing gun policy. It is time that Liberals and Progressives call this out. My child is in college and for a while was frantic that our Texas Legislature was going to allow the ability of her classmates to pack heat next to her.
We wonder why we get the shootings at Columbine. We wonder why we get a student shoot up at Virginia Tech. How about US Representative Gifford getting shot in the head and many around her getting killed by a madman definitely skewed by Right Wing messaging.
This is the result that we must expect in an America that unlike most other civilized western countries is a society that is full to the brim with guns and literally policy governed by a National Rifle Association that is always uncompromising in supporting any kind of gun control. If people have easy access to guns, as proven, they use them.
When a parent wants to discipline his daughter by shooting up her laptop as opposed to giving it to charity it shows Right Wing cowboy mentality that destroys the country’s fabric of civility and humaneness. If his intent is to punish his daughter, why not leave the laptop to charity.
As long as we allow those extreme Right Wing ideologue to misread the Constitution and the Bible and providing juvenile interpretations of the same, our safety is at risk. This country belong to us all. Do not allow a vocal minority to continue ruining it.
