The Boulder Bubble has been burst. One of the most liberal cities in the USA is the site of the latest mass killings in America – as of this writing. I will eschew the euphemism ‘mass shooting’ and use ‘mass killing’, instead. The focus should be on those murdered rather than on the implement of murder.
One of the survivors of the Boulder mass killing made the point that everything can be taken from a US citizen; the right to vote, a car, children, a home, etc. It is the most absurd thing ever to claim that only thing that can’t be taken away is a gun.
The Dems are most assuredly scratching out a new ‘sensible’ gun control bill and the GOP will undoubtedly trot out its innumerable bumper sticker canards; ‘When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns’. Even a hammer (or a pocket knife, or a can-opener, or a ____ (fill in the blank) can be used to kill so… no laws are good laws, blah, blah, blah. The NRA will monger fear of the ‘Lib-tards’ taking guns away as if that would be far worse than having thousands killed each year in the US by gun violence.
Colorado is no stranger to mass murder. One of the most infamous mass killings in Colorado and indeed in history, was Columbine. It resulted in 15 murders and a feature-length movie. The New York Times published an article about the many mass killings in Colorado. There are too many to cite here individually. It’s ugly. This ugliness is fatal. It is also avoidable. No matter what the ammosexuals, the NRA and the GOP assert, death by bullet is not the price of living in a free society.
