Trump is right: it isn’t a “guns problem”

guns-american-flag-super-169

It’s a mental health problem. Anyone who wants to own automatic weapons is mentally ill. So is anyone who believes the second amendment affords the individual a right to own such weapons.

Trump is right. It isn’t a guns problem. It’s a political corruption problem, starting with a bought-off GOP that was in the process of legalizing bump stocks when the Las Vegas Asshole killed 60 plus people using bump stocks.

Trump is right. It isn’t a guns problem. It’s a gun manufacture and gun access problem. Ban the manufacture and sale of most kinds of guns and the problem will go away. Eventually. America is saturated in guns and blood. It will take decades for our collective insanity to be cleansed.

Trump is right. It isn’t a guns problem. It’s an asshole problem. Assholes in the White House. Assholes in Congress. Assholes in red states who think their “right” to fuck around with big loud guns supersedes the right of innocent young children to live without terror. Simply to live.

Trump is right. It isn’t a guns problem. It’s a values problems. And American values have hit bottom. I hope there is a God so He or She can help us. We clearly can’t help ourselves.

America’s Homegrown Terrorists

gop-senate-1024x644With Senators like these, who needs ISIS? They’ve already been responsible for more deaths – because of their support of NRA gun policies in exchange for cash – than all the terrorists in all the groups allied against the United States combined.

I don’t know if Allah will be there to shake their hands when these assassins ascend to their Great Reward. Or if they have a hookah party planned, complete with virgins and MOR country music. But, God knows, they’ve been paid well enough in this life. Millions upon millions in blood money. So Allah would be justified in skipping the party, and letting the GOP-slated virgins stay virginal awhile longer. .

A lot of these Republican men and women purport to be Christians. I’m skeptical. I’m not even convinced they’re all Americans, They certainly don’t act like any Americans I’ve ever known, devoid as they are of the slightest concern for public safety. A moment’s thought for the common good.

Americans? Christians? I say we insist on seeing their birth certificates. And get sworn statements that they aren’t disciples of radical Islam. From their actions, you shall know them. And they’ve slaughtered tens of thousands of innocent American men, women, and children in the last few years alone.No one would do that just for money , would they? They have to believe in something. Someone. Don’t they? And it can’t possibly be America. Or Christ.

For those few GOP Senators who are real Americans and believing Christians, I have bad news. No hookah party in the sky for you. You’ll be going straight to Hell. That’s the destination, I hear, for traitors and murderers.

I suggest you wear your summer suit and travel light. It gets hot in Hell this time of year. Although there is some good news. You’ll be able to reunite with a lot of your old friends from Congress and from al qaeda. And the radio station down there plays country MOR.

Yes, I do want to take your guns …

Pretty much all of them. Just so we’re clear. And I’m willing to repeal the 2nd Amendment if its imprecise wording continues to provide fodder for NRA propaganda and cause confusion for a few dumb-as-rocks Roberts Court Justices. Then legislate your guns out of existence.

I will take your guns. Nearly all of them. And the nation needs you adolescent Tin Solders to stop playing war and find other, less lethal games. With less dangerous toys. That don’t massacre innocent people. Your fellow Americans. That don’t slaughter children.

We’re coming for your guns, weekend cowboys and cowgirls. Your mindless fun has become our nation’s nightmare.

And, you know what, kids? You probably won’t miss them.You might even breathe a sigh of relief. When your guns are gone, you won’t have to repeat lies, twist history, nitpick statistics, and strain logic past the point where it can ever again assume its rightful shape.

Most important, when your guns are gone, you can stop having blood on your hands. The blood of innocent Americans. Of babies.

My wish for you is that you will recover your sense. Use your mind again. Breathe. For a long time now, you have been slaves to your guns. It’s time for us to set you free.

We will take your guns.
