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

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.

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.
