Given that 5 percent of the Worlds population owns 50 percent of all the guns in the hands of private citizens in the world, Citizens in the USA should be the safest and the freest on the Globe IF one is to believe the crap spewed by the NRA and the Gun cult.
Using their logic If in fact as they claim Guns are keeping people safer , then one can only wonder at the number of mass killings that were to occur were they restricted which then begs the question. Why are citizens of the USA THAT willing to kill their neighbours?
The fact that there guys like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo holding office , both of them advocating the mass murder of persons abroad and suggesting it the RIGHT thing to do has more then a little to do with it and that media, wringing their hands every time one of this killings occur while at the same time cheerleading the bombing of poor brown peoples in Syria and Iraq and iran are just as corrupt and just as venal and just as murderous and just as responsible.
Now I have no doubts that Wolf Blitzer has had a few things to say on this latest school shooting but I can not confirm that as I do not have cable tv. This to illustrate HIS hyprocisy if he indeed gave one of his sniffling somber reports on this shooting.
To give specific details of the US involvement in the slaughter of children, Paul noted, “We are refueling the Saudi bombers that are dropping the bombs. It is said that thousands of civilians have died in Yemen because of this.”
CNN’s Blitzer responded, “So for you this is a moral issue. Because you know, there’s a lot of jobs at stake. Certainly if a lot of these defense contractors stop selling war planes, other sophisticated equipment to Saudi Arabia, there’s going to be a significant loss of jobs, of revenue here in the United States. That’s secondary from your standpoint?”
So what I would ask if Wolf Blitzer is this. Is this latest shooting in a US school merely a moral issue or do YOU think people should be considering the number of jobs affected were the Gun Industry not able to sell so many guns?
