Short Burst-More guns, please

So, let's see.

We've had 3 mass shootings in the last week: one on Ft. Hood military base, perpetrated by a soldier against other soldiers, and the other two committed at (unrelated) office parks.


I've also heard the phrase "lock down" used over and over as well. Thought that phrase was reserved for penitentiaries and philandering husbands.

We're slowly losing our humanity.

What do the three incidents have in common? Guns, of course.

For all of you who like to cling to the second amendment (no, not Commandment), maybe now you can see that we have too many guns.

They don't keep us safe. They just make us crazy.

So it goes...

  1. Yeah, I don't think the folks at the NRA are having any epiphanies tonight.

    I've decided, though, that this is how we hang on to our own humanity: with our outrage, with our disgust, with our refusal to simply accept the crazy; with our voices virtually raised. (And also with our laughter and our joy.)

    Remember: "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends upon the unreasonable man."
    - George Bernard Shaw

    Stay unreasonable.
