my fellow US citizens please please, we’ve got to do something about the gun violence in our country. there’s no reason someone should be able to just go buy an assault rifle or an automatic firearm of any kind. these weapons are designed to kill people, why are they sold in stores as if they have any other purpose? we have big elections coming up in November and we have to put pressure on our politicians to do something about our gun laws, to fight back against the NRA and stand up for the victims of all these senseless killings. we have to stop this happening, way too many innocent people have died because our laws favor big gun manufacturers instead of the safety of our citizens.
I’m all for this, but banning assault rifles doesn’t do much for all the shooting victims who don’t make front-page news.
Trying to ban handguns is political suicide, but maybe we could try an anti-gun campaign that specifically works with America’s cultural mythology around guns?
“John Wayne is dead, he is not coming back, you are not John Wayne and never will be, put down the damn gun.”
Ah yes, the Guns, the guns that sprout limbs and walk into gay clubs and start shooting people entirely on their own,
And while we’re at it, “there’s no reason someone should be able to just go buy an assault rifle or an automatic firearm of any kind” congratulations, that is also illegal in all US states. Literally zero automatic weapons are available in American gun stores unless you’re buying for police/military use.
