Six Students Killed at Northern Illinois University
When are we going to talk about gun control? Be warned, the opinions I am about to express are harsh and not for the faint of heart. Bottom line here, I'm not going to cry and get all upset over this. People get killed in roadside bombings everyday, why don't we front page news that? I'm sorry to say it, but Im not going to sit here and make this school shooting something that its not. Is it a tragedy? Yes. Death always is, but innocent people are slaughtered throughout the world everyday. There is a state of emergency in Chad, 15 year olds are engaging and warfare and dying by the handful. If you want to talk about these particular shootings, though, then lets stop dancing around the central issue and attack it at its source. Let's talk gun control. Otherwise, this is just a feigned parade where everyone is fooling themselves. After the lack of competent gun control discussion following the Virginia Tech killings, I am not going to get wrapped up in this stuff anymore. CNN, Fox News, Washington Post, New York Times, etc. need to sack up and stop worrying about possible negative reaction from conservative, 2nd amendment clingers. Stop selling guns and then I will feel upset about murders, until then, I'm done with this fake bullsh*t.
