AMERICA THE BLOODY
For a country that claims to be the “Greatest Nation on Earth” they have one “Hell of a” big problem. It seems that mass shootings are becoming the “National Past Time’. Lately there has been a spate of these senseless killings.
The American Motto is “In God We Trust” perhaps that should be “In Colt We Trust”, after all it is said that Colt “Made all men equal”. This obsessive addiction to fire arms is bordering on religious fanaticism spurred on by the “Pope of Pistols” Wayne Lapierre preaching from the pulpit of the High Temple of the ‘NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION, (N.R.A.) financed by the American Gun Manufacturers. They should have their own 10 Commandments to indoctrinate their followers.
1. You shall carry a gun at all times.
2. you shall buy as many guns as you can.
3. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord Colt.
4. Remember to pay your N.R.A. dues.
5. Honour Colt and Remington.
6. You shall kill when threatened.
7. You shall not buy foreign fire arms.
8. You shall keep a large supply of ammunition.
9. You shall attack any who try to take your guns away.
10.You shall keep your fire arms in good condition. You may be called upon to use them at a moments notice.
The days of children being safe at school are over. In fact, in America, you are not safe anywhere be it a concert, at the movies, or at religious services, or walking down the street. Mass shootings are the new scourge.
The corruption of the American political system is mind boggling when an association like the N.R.A., with a membership of around five million can hold the rest of the country in the palm of its’ hand and dictate policy. It has been actively lobby the U.S. Government since 1975. The N.R.A. has tweaked and spun the 2nd Amendment to suit its’ own purpose which are somewhat different than the original intent. Perhaps they still fear that the “Red Coats” will return after 242 years.
Last Wednesday 14 February (St. Valentines Day) at around 2:30 in the afternoon the shooting started and within 10 minutes 17 people were dead and 14 others wounded. The body count included 3 Teacher who tried to protect their students, and 14 teenagers. The shooter himself a teenage (19) with what reports are saying had serious mental health problems. If these reports are true how in the hell was he able to legally purchase an AR 15 assault rifle and ammunition? Why are American gun manufacturers allowed to make civilian version of military weapons? It boils down to a corrupt political system and politicians to weak or cowardly to stand up against the Weapons makers and say no. What logical reason is there for civilians to own these murderous weapons? The usual reason given is for protection. Isn’t that what the Police are for. Of course in the U.S. your just as likely to get gunned down by them as by a criminal. I hope I am wrong in saying this but it’s not likely, I month from now when the Florida shooting is no longer news it will slowly fade from the national conscience and nothing will change. In America thses shootings will go on and on and nothing will change.
