America! We're slaughtering one another.

The second amendment is a diseased, vestigial structure which is devouring our most vulnerable citizens by the thousands every year. The number one cause of death in children is now gun violence.

Gunsí mayhem and death symbolize how violent of a nation we are, and, with one of our political parties firmly supporting chaos, hate, fascism, and distribution of the machines of human slaughter, the future looks bleak for our next generations who always pay the highest price for irresponsible, wanton social calamity.

Yet, Americans will not be inconvenienced. Neither the slaughter of our children, threats to voting rights and the human rights of huge portions of society, or the real threat of extinction as a species, moves us from our comfort zones.

1. This is exactly what the Putin GOP wants.

To destroy this country and its people.

2. Be that as it may. We are, in general, standing by and watching it happen.

4. Exactly. We need to hang our heads in everlasting shame.

We stand by and do nothing as our country is being destroyed.

We watch children being slaughtered.

7. It is called learned helplessness. The GOP sociopaths tell us there is nothing we can do.

And we believe them.

10. Exactly - how many times have people mentioned repealing the 2A only to be told

by some humper that it will never happen? They are always quick with the propaganda.

12. We have been brainwashed into thinking all of this is normal.

And we can do nothing.

The world tried to tell the Ukrainians the same thing regarding the Russians.

Ukrainian was not having it.

3. It's been rendered meaningless by technology

the founding fathers could not have anticipated. If all people owned
were muskets, the 2nd would not be a problem at all.

8. The irony is that GOP leadership don't care at all about 2A.

Only to the extent they can fund raise and get votes from it.

9. Nothing will be done until grassroots action is massive.

Organize in your schools. Keep your kids home until something is done. Not discussed, but done.

11. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change

the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

14. It is in the hands of the American people now.

We shall see if they are going to continue to be like Germans in WWII or the Ukrainian people today.
