What’s the problem?

Thank you, Republicans. You really love mass-shootings, don’t you? It gives you an excuse to trot out your Bible. It gives you an excuse to blame the weak, the poor, the minorities, for all the failings of our great nation. It gives you an excuse to sell even more guns because, of course, mass-shootings means they’re comin’ fer yer guns!

And what irks me most with this, the most popular post on the subject at the moment, is the last bit, about courts without justice. Last year Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem to protest injustice. How did you Republicans respond? Well, not very kindly…

Stephen Paddock shot and killed 58 people – some of whom might have even been Republicans – and injured more than 500. I’ll just ask you Republicans one simple yes-or-no question:

If Paddock didn’t have any guns, would he have shot and killed 58 people – some of whom might even have been Republicans – and injured more than 500?

    It’s frustrating when conservative Christians use gun violence as an opportunity to trot out their “end times” theology, that mass shootings prove we are in the “end times.” Hypocritical when you realize they help enable the very industry that makes mass shootings possible.
