Psycho city.

It's going around today.

I hope this becomes a talking point.

Though I fear that it has the virtue of at least being honest, unlike the other right wing talking points.

Man, I hate being right.

I said within a day or two of Newtown that there was going to be RWNJ gun nuts that would accept incidents like Newtown, Aurora, and others as "acceptable losses", just so they can continue to buy and own handguns and "black rifles".

"Collateral damage"

That's like the right wing wanting to have childporn legal as a way to defend the right to free speech. What's the difference you gun freaks?

Sigh. In my opinion a freedom that requires human sacrifice is not a freedom at all. It's about power.

Which is what far too many people are actually talking about when the talk about 'freedom'.

Yeah but health care reform is something to compare to Stalinism. Nice sense of perspective jackasses.

The difference is that kids can get killed with the guns, and - oh, wait...

Since this event but especially since these sort of comments began appearing, Le Guin's Those who walk away from Omelas has kept running through my head.

When you view the Second Amendment through the lens of American history, especially from the Civil War on back to the Founding (and earlier), that's exactly what it was all about: power over others (who weren't white males) more than anything else.
