GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA : HERE TO STAY

It has become pointless to talk about how we can change our violent nature in this country. There was a mass shooting every day this past week and there have been at least seven school shootings in the first fourteen school days so far this year. That is a shooting every other day.

The numbers are staggering, depressing and now just simply a fact of life in the Unites States of America. There is no end in sight. None. Smart, caring people in the MSM such as Piers Morgan consistently talk about what we need to do as a country to stop the violence. Morgan, who is British, is often derided by low brow, low life, uneducated Americans who tell him to “go back to England.” The same way their ignorant fathers told people who were against Vietnam to “love it or leave it” in regards to living in this country. These people are scum but Morgan, to his credit actually interviews some of them. At first I wondered why because I would simply punch their teeth down their throat if they said that stuff to me. However as I watch Morgan allow them to spew their pro-NRA bile, I understood that it was important to show these people for who they really are.

The big problem, the huge disappointment is that they are winning. They want guns and violence and deaths of children and that’s exactly what is happening almost daily. Yes they WANT deaths of children. NO doubt about it. It’s not me being cynical, it’s being honest. They want this because it creates a huge scare across the country which makes dumb people buy more guns. Sales go up, the NRA and their friends make money and they are all very happy. Capitalism at its best!

It has gotten to the point where most shootings, from schools to malls, aren’t even covered in the news anymore. The threshold seems to be five deaths. More than that and it gets coverage. Over ten deaths and it can become a major story for about a week and then it goes away. Sick ain’t it?

However we can’t blame the MSM for this one. Gun violence has become such a way of life here that it’s almost like car accidents or burglaries. You simply can’t cover them all. This is what the USA has become, a cesspool of violence in which our children can’t even go to school anymore without fear of being killed. Where parents simply do not know if they will see their kids return home from school. This is what WE are. This is what WE have become.

Of course the NRA talks about the need for even MORE guns. So far the police they have placed in some schools have done no good at all. What a shock eh? They have just ticketed students for things like not wearing a seat belt. There have also been horror stories of these officers leaving their guns in school restrooms by mistake. There have even been accidental shootings.

But this is the stuff I and other sane Americans said was going to happen. It won’t change but will only get worse. Only a matter of time before one or more students get killed by an officer who can’t shoot straight. There will be more and more “normal, average” shootings with teenagers taking guns to school and killing innocents.

I know people like Morgan and others want me to talk about ways to end the violence. How we can defeat the NRA and get the right people elected to Congress. But I’m done with all that. There is no way to stop it, and there is only one way to avoid it. To leave the country.

Yes those parents who want their kids to survive their school years must move to a normal country with sane people who don’t need a substitute for their small penis issues. A country like Great Britain, a great country that after a mass shooting in 1996 actually took action and removed most guns. There hasn’t been one mass shooting since. Or if you don’t want to travel that far you can simply move north of the border to Canada. Another country where gun violence pales in comparison to the USA. And they have cowboys there too!

No there is only one answer. To leave. It’s over here. Things will only get worse. The gun culture is way too ingrained here for anything to change. It has been going on too long, the people are too selfish and ignorant to see things any other way.

Just leave parents, please, just leave. Take your family somewhere else and live a normal happy life.

Go now and don’t ever look back.

    I would also recommend Holland, where I used to live 🙂 A wonderful, liberal country, and no worries about shootings. I have some American friends who have moved there and they love it.

    Mike, hope you read “Guns In America: Common Sense versus Nonsense,” you’ll find a similar voice there. Also, I wrote something prior that I never marketed, but when it came to the Tea Party it went something like, “… they’re just the sons and daughters of those who used to throw rocks at the free-speechers and tell them, ‘America, love it or leave it.’ Could be our New York backgrounds.

    Gun violence has been on a steady decline since prior to the Assault Weapons Ban and it continued to decline during and after the ban expired. What has increased is the rate of mental health decay in society, and I believe it is partially tied to pharmaceuticals and culture. While your concerns are very legitimate, they are based on a red herring.

      Utter nonsesnse. Mass shootings have been on the rise. You want people to believe that a school shooting every other fucking day shows gun violence is on the decline? More bullshit from an American who sees the sky is orange when it is clearly blue in the eyes of the sane.

        Funny, I thought the definition of “mass shooting” was a “mass shooting” not a “school shooting.” All “school shooting” means is a shooting that occurs in a school. One gang member shoots another on the edge of school property and it gets labeled as a “school shooting.” Last time I checked that is far from a “mass shooting.” Before you posit that they are on the rise why don’t you actually research them instead of make up your own convenient conclusion to go spouting around the internet.

        A mass shooting is when more than one person is shot or targeted. This is the majority of the school shootings. They have also been mostly non gang related..not that it would matter since even those shootings often target kids not involved in gangs.

        Your premise is not only flawed it is also despicable. You care nothing about the victims only the sick love and need for your guns and assault weapons.

        You and your gun loving buddies are a cancer…eating away at the marrow of this society.

        Or you could look at actual FBI crime statistics and see the trends.

        Sure, a shooting every other day sounds like a lot, but compared to when there was (theoretically) twice the violence and therefore a shooting every day (I’m talking back in the 60’s and 70’s, when crime rates and murder rates really were twice as high).

        The difference? You actually hear about the smaller ones on the news.

        How about you find some facts, instead of just calling people stereotypical names?

      4. mikecaccioppoli Post author

        You are actually trying to tell us that shootings are being covered more now and that is why we are hearing about them??? Seriously? This is the problem not the actual shootings themselves??

        The facts are that mass shootings in schools,malls,etc are on the rise. There was not a shooting every other day in schools in the 60s and 70s no matter how much you want to twist the facts.

        Also there are so many now that they do not get much coverage at all in the msm.

        Just admit that you love and need your guns to feel whole. Because otherwise your life is empty.

        Only a true scumbag would try minimize the violence to suit his own needs.

        Stop cherry picking facts. Violent crime is down in most civilized nations. The usa still leads most of those nations in not only gun killings but killings overall..higher per 100,000 citizens than Uk, Canada etc etc..

        All you do is quote stats that fit into your illogic. People all over the world know how full of shit you are. Only moron Americans are fooled.

      6. Cory

        Okay, so let’s extrapolate on your idea that “The USA still leads most of those nations in not only gun killings but killings overall…”

        So what you’re saying is that even without the guns, we’re more violent than the rest of the world? But somehow taking away all these guns is going to fix that?

        See, there’s the problem I have. You see a problem, you come up with a solution, but you’re not looking into whether or not your solution actually solves the problem (and according to Obama’s own CDC report, your solution does not).

        Actually, maybe you should flip through that study: http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2013/Priorities-for-Research-to-Reduce-the-Threat-of-Firearm-Related-Violence.aspx

        It’s like saying “Hey, look, I’ve got a broken leg. I hear aspirin is good for pain. Guess my leg is going to be all better now!”

        And, might I add, you’re still resulting to name calling. “Moron Americans”, “Scumbag”. C’mon now, at least have the intelligence to attack ideas instead of people. Resorting to personal insults is a sure sign that you’re on the losing end of a debate.

        Dude…you are AMAZING in your refusal to look at guns as a MAJOR issue…the gun laws are much stricter and guns much less prevalent in society in other countries and therefore gun crimes are much lower..it is ONE major factor…

        I’m tired of going around in circles with a guy who refuses to look at facts and logic and reality,,the sky is blue not orange

        “The sky is blue not orange”

        I’ve looked at the facts. I’ve read the figures. Crime is the problem. Guns are only the tools. Remove the guns, and we’ve still got just as much violence. Just as many deaths. Just as many problems. You’ve locked yourself on a target and you’re focusing on it so hard that you can’t see the real threats.

        But no, you’ve made up your mind, and you refuse to listen to what people tell you. So you attack the guns, because attacking the recidivism rate or mental health is too big of a concept for you to wrap your mind around, or propose any solutions for.

        So go on believing that the sky is blue, and maybe one day you’ll learn a little more, and realize that it’s really not. It’s just an optical illusion.

    Cory,
    Please consider these two scenarios:
    A] A man is angry/pissed off etc. due to the society/personal issues/name-your-evil-problem. He wants to kill people. He buys a gun, and kills 10 (or put any number you want) people.
    B] A man is angry/pissed off etc. due to the society/personal issues/name-your-evil-problem. He wants to kill people. He tries to see if he can buy a gun and finds out that he cannot. There are no gun shops, there are no avenues for him to buy a gun. So, he gets more frustrated and may be buys a knife or some poison or some other deadly instrument. Problem with all these deadly instruments is that none of these have the same killing power as a gun. It is a fact.

    Scenario A is what we have in USA. Scenario B is other developed countries. What do you think? Why do you feel that guns are required in USA? Exactly what advantage is USA getting over other developed nations by having easy access to guns? As a society, how are we better off?

    Mike has stated the -ves of access to guns. I have never heard anyone do a relative comparison which tells you that guns are good.
