Today’s Music: Maura Kennedy – Chains
To be honest I’ve read exceptionally little about the latest tragedy. I think I’m becoming inured to this kind of news.
Look over that last sentence.
I’m becoming inured. To stories of shootings. At schools.
How the hell is that possible?
And then, once the initial story is covered, the talking heads will come out. The Left heads will go on about how guns have no place in our society, and it’s the fault of the lobbyists for limiting regulation on them.
The Right heads will go on about he left is politicizing this in a callous use of politics during the tragedy. They’ll tell us that guns aren’t the problem, and that if one of one of the teachers had been packing heat, then this could have been averted, so guns are in fact the answer.
Until the next tragedy. And we’ll go around again.
I have absolutely no idea how long it will take, but just as the nature of political parties change over time, so do the nature of organizations.
Reform the the NRA from the inside. Membership is $35 a year. Not a lot of money, and worth if for a year or more experiment to see if we can change it from the inside.
This isn’t me taking a shot at you. I’ve fired guns.I enjoy it.
But I’d like to know how a drive to limit access (or increase screening/waiting periods) is a bad thing.
Even Freedom Of Speech, our most sacred amendment, has limits on it.
I’ll be listening. After I’ve begun establishing a fifth column in the NRA.
