her sons shooting at target range. From Slate
The two semiautomatic pisols and .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle Lanza used in the shooting were registered to his mother, whom several witnesses identified as an avid gun collector. She apparently taught her kids how to shoot the guns. The owner of a landscaping business who recently decorated her yard for Christmas tells Reuters she once showed him a “really nice, high-end rifle” that she purchased. “She said she would often go target shooting with her kids.”-- Slate
Dear Mr. President,
Thanks for your tears. I needed to see them. You see, I have 5 boys...
... and i have trouble with this. I cried yesterday. You see, I don't cry much; but I did yesterday. And then.. as expected.. slowly but surely.. the rage came.
Children can spray bullets. Men gut their victims with knives up close. They have to know death, murder, intimately... and live with it.
Guns are easy. Makes death easy.
I have five sons- if this had happened to... I would have been arrested for murder- if I had been lucky enough to reach the m.f.
Mr. President, I know you like to reach across the aisle. I know you admire Lincoln. There is no reaching across the aisle- not with the sick bigots around you.... Guns. You are a president I have fought for- from writing my columns to poll watching- You are a President with a mandate- resoundingly. We have your back- do something about guns or bullets or both:
A Mandate. A Mandate that involves the murder of the innocent, the murder of our children.
When is a good time to take this on??? NOW
A madman in China stabbed 22 children. None died. and guns?
Well, after today, and being the old Southern fuck that I am- pony up dude. Whether it be the NRA or wall street or boner or women's rights or gay marriage- i don't really give a damn cause Mr. President- I am in a state of rage.
Your pathetic traitorous opponents cannot be reasoned with... on any issue. Fox wants you gone. Rush wants you gone. We are at war here. Please get a clue my leader- they want to destroy this country and have already stared with the middle class, i.e. us.
This is an opportunity to take the oppressors by the balls. And they are our oppressors.
And as of today -with piles of 5 year old bodies in a class room in Connecticut, like a mistaken drone attack in Pakistan- ouch...yea...ouch.
Stop this madness - recognize the war
recognize your mandate- take no prisoners
go for it
and start with the NRA
we got your back brother...our President
from- one tired writer father citizen mother fucker
1:17 PM PT: Not that it is much- but in addition to raising 5 sons in gun culture, I worked in an ER with gunshot victims when younger, carried guns for protection closing bizes late at night ( I subsequently stopped), was almost accidentally shot by mistaken discharged fr one of our own guns, and one of my adult sons is an avid gun collector. This pales to those in the armed forces or law enforcement. And i am strongly anti-gun.
