3. This will be the last mass shooting until the next one.

Michael Moore's FB comment on the UCSB shootings,

With due respect to those who are asking me to comment on last night's tragic mass shooting at UCSB in Isla Vista, CA -- I no longer have anything to say about what is now part of normal American life. Everything I have to say about this, I said it 12 years ago: We are a people easily manipulated by fear which causes us to arm ourselves with a quarter BILLION guns in our homes that are often easily accessible to young people, burglars, the mentally ill and anyone who momentarily snaps. We are a nation founded in violence, grew our borders through violence, and allow men in power to use violence around the world to further our so-called American (corporate) "interests." The gun, not the eagle, is our true national symbol. While other countries have more violent pasts (Germany, Japan), more guns per capita in their homes (Canada ), and the kids in most other countries watch the same violent movies and play the same violent video games that our kids play, no one even comes close to killing as many of its own citizens on a daily basis as we do -- and yet we don't seem to want to ask ourselves this simple question: "Why us? What is it about US?" Nearly all of our mass shootings are by angry or disturbed white males. None of them are committed by the majority gender, women. Hmmm, why is that? Even when 90% of the American public calls for stronger gun laws, Congress refuses -- and then we the people refuse to remove them from office. So the onus is on us, all of us. We won't pass the necessary laws, but more importantly we won't consider why this happens here all the time. When the NRA says, "Guns don't kill people -- people kill people," they've got it half-right. Except I would amend it to this: "Guns don't kill people -- Americans kill people." Enjoy the rest of your day, and rest assured this will all happen again very soon.

4. "The gun, not the eagle, is our true national symbol."

 

And quite a few on this very site love that symbol more than the lives of children, or anything else...

5. The NRA is a racist, anti-family hate group, just like their parent company, the GOP. nt

7. We Need To Pound On The Second Amendment

The Dancing Bug has it right. This amendment was written a long, long, time ago when nobody had automatic weapons, they had muskets. And it really had to do with militias.

8. The Militia Acts of 1792 really make that clear...

 

It's pro-gun nuts who have misinterpreted it for over 200 years now.
