For those who died, for those huddled in fear as bullets flew

For those desperately calling and searching for sons and daughters, friends and partners. For those who will live in the shadow of this horrendous act of hate and cowardice; for all those, I have nothing but my compassion and empathy. And my pledge, small as it may be to fight for real gun control.

For the NRA, for those defending unfettered gun "rights", for the idiots rushing out to buy more weapons, for the manufacturers of guns meant for nothing but killing other humans, I have nothing to offer but my steadfast opposition and contempt- and my pledge to fight for real gun control.

14. How sad that your hatred for Sanders takes precedence over gun control. Let's see if

 

Clinton will make gun manufacturers more liable than any other manufacturers. Clinton isn't known for being tough against manufacturers or any corporations. She likes stiff marijuana laws to fill her Prisons For Profits.

16. Sadly you aren't half as clever as you think you are.

 

You've chosen to side with the Wealthy, I guess hoping they will help the poor. But you don't understand capitalism. Goldman-Sachs isn't going to help the poor they want more and more and more. It appears that's what you admire.

4. There was a mother on MSNBC earlier saying her son was missing.

The son's boyfriend was reportedly in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds but the son was unaccounted for.

Broke my fucking heart.

12. My wife and I got in a Hillary v Bernie fight yesterday

One of the few we've ever had, and maybe the only political. I've helped her Hillary group organize phone banks, showed them how to canvass, etc., and I'm the Bernie fanatic.

The reason I mention this is because I was pissed that she was still giving money to Clinton. I was being an asshole about it, and ranting about Wall Street. The usual Bernie stuff

Anyway, I said, "Instead of given by any money directly to political candidates, let's give it to political causes. How about we start with 'Nevadans for Background Checks?" It just strikes me as ironic that we gave fifty bucks to that very tepid gun control cause just yesterday morning.

You're right, Cali: I have to do more, we have to do more. I'm sure as shit not hiding my contempt for those who encourage or enable these horrors, whether it's fundamentalist religious nuts or fundamentalist NRA nuts (or those poor saps suckered by the NRA). Fuck 'em.

I'll also be knocking on as many doors as possible to support the candidate that wants to keep weapons of war off of our streets.
