The NRA and congress aren't to blame every single time this happens. Are they assholes? Without a doubt. But opening your minds to a narrative with a potential for actual change needs to be at the forefront. It's never, "what happened to this individual to get like this?" The underlying issues keep getting ignored. Mental health, medication and society itself. Gun control isn't going to solve the epidemic of hate or the state of people with mental health issues. Black markets... will always exist and an individual who is motivated to kill, will do so with any tool. A true government provides its citizens with general welfare. But we have a non-caring, corrupt and narcissist system at play that focuses on profit before people. We allow the talking heads to continually have us see each other as enemies. Dehumanization via 4" inch screens. But...AR 15s!! Yeah? There are plenty of people with arsenals who don't kill. But there are WAY more people with mental health illnesses that are ticking time bombs. Pro gun or anti gun? That doesn't matter as much as accepting the blame as a society. #shooting #news
When scum surrounds itself with scum.
Anti-Trump doesn't necessarily mean pro-democrat. Both parties lie, both parties cater to lobbyists and misrepresent the American people. If you can't see the sins of your own party then you can never see past blind loyalty. True leaders inspire a nation to unite, not divide. #fuck #politics #obama #trump
“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
