The evil that exists in this world never ceases to amaze me. What kind of chicken shit coward goes into a church, and kills 26 people; women, children and old men? Churches are welcoming places where anyone is welcome.
Many on social media are calling for Gun control.
Define gun control?
Unless you can wave a magic wand and make all 500 million plus firearms vanish, there is no such animal, like gun control.
While a good guy with a gun stopped the bad guy with a gun, those same advocates of gun control would take his gun away from him as well. With that rather stupid logic, the only people with guns would be the criminals. Criminals don’t give a damn about laws of any sort, just in case you did not know.
If bump stocks were outlawed, the criminals would still have them. If machine guns were illegal, the criminals would always have them. We have rogue nations with nukes pointed at the US! That is illegal, immoral and probably going to get them all killed!
Me, You, and the rest of us are being manipulated by people who hate the US.
How or why do I say that?
Anytime something happens that evokes an emotional response the evil people go to work spreading hate and discontent. The memes are all ready to go just waiting for the next crazy person to react to some trigger.
If I want to manipulate you I just “trigger” your emotions. Then I pour gasoline on the fire by using expletives and calling you names. I may have several twitter accounts, picking a fight with myself that others see, and think it is between several people. Those others chime in and before I know it I have tens of thousands fighting a Twitter war that I am having with myself!
Dividing us, pitting us against one another through social media is what they do best. Some of them are just robots spreading hate word salad. Some are trolls of a foreign government. Some are just really misinformed or radicalized miscreants hiding in their mother’s basement, using her internet feeling all big and powerful in their anonymity.
- The NRA had nothing to do with this, nice try.
- The GOP or the DNC had nothing to do with this.
Many out there are using the F-word calling anyone that is not a gun control fanatic a Nazi.
Your vile rhetoric is lost, as is your argument. You are probably one of the trolls of which I speak.
Since the guy is dead, we may not understand why he did what he did.
There are early reports that he was discharged dishonorably from the air force. If that fact disqualifies him from owning guns, then we need to find out why he had one.
I will cede one point with the gun control crowd.
I believe that if you choose to own a weapon, you should be required to submit to a background check by the FBI. I don’t know what the laws are currently, but I think you just have to full out a form and answer all the questions correctly.
The hate in this country is reaching new levels, and I genuinely believe that social media plays a large part.
Just possibly we should shut it all off! Zuckerberg and the other Twitter moguls would lose money, but just maybe we might talk with our neighbors again instead of tweeting to the world en masse!
This is so far past anything that I have ever seen before. Maybe they do need to legalize pot so everyone could just take a few hits and chill!
We are all the same, we all bleed red, and there is no excuse for the vitriol we see today.
A town of 400 people will be devastated perhaps from now on. We need to learn the root cause analysis, or genesis of this persons anger, and try to unravel the events which brought him into this town with the large cache of weapons that he had. I do not believe this was his only target. It is just possible that the church down the road was his next target.
Our words carry weight, and they matter.
