Spare Me the Bullshit on Guns




“Spare me the bullshit about mental illness. We don’t have any more ‘mental illness’ than any other country in the world. You cannot explain this through a prism of mental illness, because … we’re not an outlier on mental illness. We’re an outlier when it comes to access to firearms and the ability of criminals and very sick people to get their hands on firearms. That’s what makes America different.”

— Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT)


Note: I’ll add the following comments…..

(1)  Spare me the bullshit about the decline of religion and bible verses not being taught in schools as a factor in gun violence….nations that are *far less* religious than the United States and have *no bibles* in the schools have virtually *no school shootings.*

(2)  Spare me the bullshit about arming teachers and lunch ladies. If 120 heavily armed police officers and a SWAT team wouldn’t or couldn’t stop one 18-year-old kid while he shot up a school for an hour on a rampage, the teacher and the lunch lady aren’t going to save the kids.

(3)  Spare me the bullshit about arming more citizens. This fearful nation has more guns than people. Double the number of guns, or triple it, or even quadruple it, and the violence arrow is going to go in just one obvious direction. There’s been a massive increase in gun violence in the last few decades.  Why? Because there are more guns. If you don’t understand this, you don’t understand simple math.
