The only acceptable response to the Parkland Shooting is pointing out “the amount of blood” the NRA has on their hands. Republicans too. Really, anyone who has seen a picture of a gun. Some have strayed though (see Parkland JROTC Student: Hero Coach Should Have Been Armed and Parkland High School Student: I Don’t Think Gun Control Would Have Prevented This). Like this post from a Florida Teacher of the Year.
TRIGGER WARNING: This Facebook rant contains reason, nuance, and doesn’t blame the NRA.
Ok, I lied a little. She does talk about guns. Raley lived with them in her home.
But you know what? I never dreamed of shooting anyone with his guns. I never dreamed of taking one! I was taught respect for human life, compassion, rules, common decency, and most of all, I was taught that until I moved out, my life and bedroom wasn’t mine…it was theirs. And they were going to know what was happening because they loved me and wanted the best for me.
This post wasn’t about gun control. This was me, loving the crap out of people and wanting the best for them. This was about my school babies and knowing that God created each one for greatness, and just wanting them to reach their futures.
Here we have a logical approach to a complicated and emotional issue. Witness it in all its glory. Despite the refreshing approach, it’s still sure to trigger many leftist rage fits.
Sadly, I’m already anticipating the follow up post to this. Once rabid gun control activists catch wind of this, that’s when the threats start. Safety from guns is the ultimate goal. Safety from their own unhinged idiocy, not so much. Priorities.
