    To all those men/women who died not fighting a war we don't see. Takes a pretty simple shot for gaming.

    You assault weapon isn't going to help you secede when a drone drops a bomb on you.

     . . . Then we should march on it. (As well as all our publicly backward embarrassments of history).

    I am sure every school at least could have a Camera like they do in Chicago (that rotates to point when it heres a loud noise) Can't we afford to put those in schools?

    Christ I am saying 30 things, I didn't even realize it was Kindergartners. I remember going. Half a day, start imagining what you want to be. FUCK this. (And my Dad responsibly owns guns, I have a concealed carry permit but don't own one).

    They are preventing the American Dream.

    We NEED a voice, not Michael Moore (he is too polarizing) someone who is associated with guns. Someone saying "Ok have a shotgun" for "game" BUT . . .

    Have the class pic (if they are ok with). I'll pay for any website someone wants to make any way related to donating, etc. (ie the domain name, make it a non-profit, etc. just can't run).

    The paradox is this. In the 60's say- they did institutionalize a lot of people that were a "danger". Then they gave them Drugs that gave them all kind of PERMANENT nervous system issues like tardive diskenesia(sp.?). Did we stop because we realized that the truth is we were incarcerated and ruining people's bodies, and statistics showed that actually psychologists were terrible at predicting violence (as in most would never be violent)? No. The only true "predictor" is past violece, so the guys in jail, doing their time who have a constitutional right to get out and do it again are the ones who what? 75% of the time do?

    So what do you do? Incareracate without trial people and let the Pharm industry run wild when they probably won't do anything? Change the laws, go around Habeas for actual criminals (I'd hope not). I'd think bigger, maybe even prison should be a place where you get raped and learn how to do more heinous crimes. Instead of retributivism, maybe we should get back to the other forgotten goal of rehabilitation. I don't know. There are so many things at play that don't work.

    But this needs to end. Fuck the NRA. And anyone who is a member. I don't care if you are a democrat. I dont care if you enjoy shooting or own a gun. Do it without giving soul-less asses your money. You are responsible, so is my dad. So am I. But well /end rant (first time i really thought about). This isn't just sad for these kids, as a country we should be Embarrassed.
