God, guns and sacrificial lambs: Alabama’s worship of guns is killing our children

Gun Rights

Gun idolatry is killing our kids.

Gun violence is the leading cause of death among Alabama children.

That’s a fact. For Alabama. For the country.

Disturbed people. Who have no business being near a gun. Have easy access to any kind of gun they want. It’s easier to buy a murder weapon than it is to buy a decongestant, for crying out loud. Crying out loud. That’s what happens when an innocent child gets slaughtered by a hair-trigger bad decision. A hot head with a hot gun provokes a lot of senseless crying out loud moments.

There should be more speed bumps on the exit ramp to murder. For crying out loud.

Guns. People with guns. Disturbed people with guns. Are killing. Our children. Accidentally. On purpose. All the time. Our children are killing our children.

Don’t bring your lame arguments about how knives, cars and baseball bats can also be used to kill people. You can not compare any of that to an AR-15 massacre. Why use a Louisville Slugger to bludgeon one dude when it’s so easy to grab-and-go-kill a multitude of innocent people with a Glock or a headline-grabbing macho military-style murder weapon?

Republicans want to ban books, drag queens and historical truth. Because they are afraid of what young people might learn and think. Or how they might vote. But they don’t want to discuss one damn thing about reforming the number one killer of children in Alabama and America: Gun violence. Firearms.

Republican “leaders” don’t get paid to think. They get paid to play along. #NRA.

I’m sorry I have to repeatedly pick on the Republican Party. I truly am. But the Democrats in this state are pretty much non-existent, and rarely news-worthy. Work on it, y’all.
