re Northern California

Over and over and over... Y A A A A A A W W W W W N N N N.

Apparently some kid with an assault rifle yadda yadda yadda, ad infinitum, World Without End, baby Jebus bless the NRA. Whatever…

The ever expanding catechism:

Buncha Texas church goers get dead.

CW fans eat lead.

See here.

See here.

And here.

And here.

And here.

And here.

Or here or here or here or here or here or…you get the idea.

There’s no sense in writing anything new about America’s insane love affair with guns; we’re not Australia, we won’t do the right thing. 1 2

  1. Instead we’ll continue to ignore the situation, hoping it will just go away. Hey – it’s worked so far… Right?
  2. It’s a crying shame Steve Scalise and his ilk weren’t visiting northern Cali at the time; maybe being shot multiple times at multiple venues would wake those fuckers up.

re Sutherland Springs

Yaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn.

Apparently some “madman” took an assault rifle into a church and killed a buncha people.

Again.

Whatever, right? The act of mass murder (and why the authorities have not labeled this ‘incident’ an act of terrorism is beyond us) has become as American as mom and apple pie. Who cares; flip the channel and let’s watch supposedly mature men do permanent damage to themselves, right? Listen to Texas AG Paxton double down on teh stoopid:

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Again with the litany:

If we’re down with killing kindergartner’s, double-fuck a buncha CW fans.

Thoughts and Prayers

Après L\’abattage

Après L'abattage

“‘This is not the time to be talking about guns.’ Sometimes I wish I had used this logic as a kid when I’d done something wrong. You know, my mom wanted to ground me. I should have just said, ‘Is this the time, Mom, that we politicize what is happening right now? This is not the time to talk about my lack of discipline. This is a time for us to unite as a family, to focus on the fact that I’m stuck in the kitchen window trying to sneak back in. Come on, Mom. This is not the time.’”

“Just to give you an idea of how far away America is from actual gun control, this week Congress is going to vote on deregulating gun silencers. Because I guess Congress is thinking, ‘Gun violence is out of control — how can we make it quieter?’”TREVOR NOAH
