Here’s the start of two stories from the AP site this morning:
DA: Mass. dad shoots 2 kids, 1 fatally, kills self
OXFORD, Mass. (AP) — A man who had recently separated from his wife shot his two children, killing his 7-year-old daughter, before committing suicide, prosecutors said….
3 shot dead in Pa.; girl taken, found safe in Ohio
QUINCY, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man confronting his estranged wife about custody arrangements for their daughter shot the woman to death and killed her boyfriend and his mother, then fled with the 4-year-old girl before the two were found about 250 miles away in Ohio, authorities said….
Yeah, let’s arm everybody like the Republicans and their whoremaster NRA want to do. That’ll make the country safe for women and children.
James Holmes doesn’t look so bad in light of the everyday slaughter in the United States. At least Holmes has the excuse of suffering a legitimate mental disease, if current reports are true.
But these stupid bastards who kill their wives and children? They’re inadequate assholes who haven’t got the guts to man up and face reality and deal with their problems like a man. Nope, they’ve got to have a gun to feel like they’re worth anything. They’ve got to kill something so they can feel they’re ‘a real man’. In fact, they’re pathetic and weak, the products of a culture of ignorance that worships celebrity, violence, and money while mouthing pieties about ‘family values’ and ‘God’.
That’s America, where guns substitute for brains, and bullets substitute for emotional intelligence.
Maybe the NRA needs a new motto. Instead of ‘Guns don’t kill people, people kill people’ they might want to consider ‘Guns don’t kill people, men with guns kill women and children’.
