|Yeah, guns and booze go together like Laurel and Hardy. Maybe just not as funny.|
Jurors are being selected for the Trayvon Martin shooting case.
George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin was a neighborhood WATCH volunteer. I don't know if he's mentally ill and apparently no one is questioning that. But I would like to know what about neighborhood WATCH means ignoring a dispatchers directive to not chase an unarmed teenager and wait for police?
Maybe he just could not follow directions?
Whether you're a crime fighting volunteer or a certifiable nutcase, guns are good.
It turns out, neither do the mentally ill, or neighborhood WATCH volunteers. While Washington D.C. goes crazy over the NSA leaks, I didn't hear anyone complain about the fact that mass shootings are occurring every 2 weeks. Gun control legislation languishes, more people die while the idiots in Washington chase the next scandal, when the biggest scandal of all are the amount of killings due to lack of serious background checks for the mentally ill regarding the purchase of guns.
Turns out that it's more than a thrill to grab a gun in a sexy satin camisole. It's a necessity when you're trapped in a frame of Christmas nostalgia with balls about to rain down on your head. But what is really unspoken here is that you could be handing a gun over to someone who's going to use it on you. She doesn't look as if she's going to shoot that thing. 1,500 women are killed each year by their boyfriends or their husbands.
About 4,563 people have died this year from gun violence. If that many people had SARS I don't think it would be ignored the way the epidemic of deaths due to guns are. I don't know many people who have todeal with bears or lions or tigers on a daily basis anymore. I do realize that people are the most dangerous thing in our environment. But why is the only answer having an arsenal of weapons available? I wonder how many people are going to die today because of gun violence? When will the next mass shooting be? People say we can't stop these events from occurring, does that mean we shouldn't do anything about it?
