So now we’ve had two mass shootings in a matter of days and the conservatives continue to insist that stricter gun laws that might have helped to prevent them from happening in the first place shouldn’t even be discussed.
“Thoughts and prayers” and all that meaningless bullshit.
Neither Georgia nor Colorado (or as my daughter has dubbed the latter “The Mass Shooting State” – perhaps that should be Colorado’s new state motto) has a mandatory waiting period when one purchases a gun. The assholes who murdered so many people in Atlanta and then Boulder were able to purchase their weapons and then use them to slaughter innocent people on the same goddamned day.
No “cool down” period, and certainly not long enough to perform a thorough background check on these soulless motherfuckers.
No, it’s not “too soon” to address this latest tragedy. It’s been far too late now for several decades.
I guess that at this point, it doesn’t matter how many die, but perhaps it will eventually matter when WHO dies, as they clearly don’t give a shit when it doesn’t touch them personally.
But then, they kept their fucking mouths shut after the Fapweasel’s attempted coup on January 6, 2021, so who fucking knows if even a real threat to their personal safety is even enough.
