In the aftermath of another mass shooting all The Onion had to do was change the location names in a previously published article and republish it. Voila! In case you missed it, here it is: ‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens.
I’m also posting links to a few other important articles and then one great video from Jon Oliver.
And this wonderful post by a gun-owning Australian who writes about a conversation on a bus with a Southerner:
I explained how Australian gun laws worked and how they had changed in recent years. No semi-automatic rifles unless you were the primary landholder in a rural area. All assault style weapons outlawed. No handguns unless you were a member of a gun club and went through a rigorous screening process.
“Gee,” he said, “I wish we had that. But this country is too far gone. The guy robbing my house has a colt .45 and so I need me a colt .45. If he’s got a pump, I need a semi-auto 12 gauge.”
And the always fun comparison of deaths from gun violence versus deaths from terrorism.
And last, watch Jon Oliver go off on those who use every mass shooting event as an opportunity to talk about mental health like they care about it and then do absolutely nothing.
This is mostly a blog about my journey as a father and a husband. Sharing my stance on gun control is absolutely relevant to my original intentions when creating this blog. Thus, you might see more about gun control on here in the future.
