Yeah, I have lost my patience with this crap.
Let’s see how the gun nuts try to explain away a 24-year-old woman and her cameraman being shot live on the air. Go ahead, give me an excuse.
I posted this on my personal Facebook on Wednesday, August 26 when I heard about the live on-air murder of Alison Parker and Adam Ward. And you know what, it didn’t take very long before saw posts doing that very same thing. People bitching about why people weren’t trying to ban the pride flag over this shooting, why the gun isn’t the issue, and whining about how the government is coming to steal their guns.
To all those, Shut the fuck up.
A 24-year-old woman and her cameraman get murdered and another woman only expected death by centimeters, and the first thing that comes to mind is the nonexistent seizure of your precious pee shooters, then I’m not sure you should be the one trusted with a gun to begin with since you obviously don’t give a shit about anyone else’s life as long as it’s not anyone you know.
Now, I didn’t know either of these people personally, but it still struck a nerve with me because back in my college days I was learning to do the very things they were. I had a camera on my shoulder and I was writing news stories. Why didn’t I make it? Because I wasn’t very good nor driven for it, but I knew plenty that were. So when I see a young woman just getting a career for herself and her cameraman being slaughtered, I think what would have happened if it was any of the people I knew trying to be reporters and camera people like those two were. I may not have been very good at it, but I do have a respect for those that do, and unlike the piece of shit that murdered them, I’m not a whiney professional victim who blamed everyone else for not being very good.
So yeah, I have ZERO tolerance for whiny little shits that say “it’s not the gun that kills people, but it’s the person. Guns aren’t the issue” so they can pretend to be GI Joe on some backwoods shooting range. Yeah, because the first world war was started because someone hit Archduke with a pillow.
“But but but..” I heard people whimper as they caudle their oversized assault rifle, “Why wasn’t he treated like the guy who killed those people in a church in South Carolina?” WAKE UP! Welcome to the real world. You think everyone gets treated fairly and the same in this world? Nope. And frankly, if you sympathize with either of these fuckheads or their selfish and racist views then again, I’d want you not to be armed.
Guess what stupid, this bullshit that The government is gonna take your precious guns away, look at all the guns the government actually took? See any? nope. By the reaction of some they probably SHOULD, but nothing has been done. Not because it’s the right thing to do, but because of money. The gunmakers make too damn much money over you jackasses and you fall for it every time. So next time you spout off “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” go watch that clip of a 13 year old girl blowing the face off a gun instructor with an uzi and tell me who the “bad guy with a gun” is.
