On Wednesday, America once again dealt with mass casualties brought on by gun violence. Fourteen people were murdered when two people opened fire at the Inland Regional Center, in San Bernardino, California. Earlier that day, there was a mass shooting in Georgia and less than a week ago, a planned parenthood was attacked and left three people dead. We have had more mass shootings this year than we have had days, and yet, the Republican Party still blocks every effort Democrats make to make it harder for people to buy guns.
The United States is the only advanced country in the world that has so many of their citizens die from gun violence every year. Meanwhile, while we continue to experience the horror of violent shootings over and over again, the rest of the world looks at us and laughs at our obvious stupidity. Australian comedian Jim Jefferies is one of the people mocking us and he explains why:
In Australia, we had the biggest massacre on Earth, and the Australian government went: ‘That’s it! NO MORE GUNS.’ And we all went, ‘Yeah, all right then, that seems fair enough, really.’
Now in America, you had the Sandy Hook massacre, where little tiny children died. And your government went, ‘Maybe … we’ll get rid of the big guns?’ And 50 percent of you went, ‘FUCK YOU, DON’T TAKE MY GUNS.'”
In 1996, Martin Bryant became the worst murderer in Australia history when he opened fire, with a semiautomatic rifle and another semiautomatic assault weapon, in a cafe in Port Arthur, Tasmania. His rampage left 35 people dead and 23 others wounded. Shortly after the massacre, Australia enacted some of the strictest gun laws in the world and, as a result, their gun deaths plummeted. The country has only had one mass shooting incident since the gun laws went into effect.
Jefferies, who was once the victim of a home invasion, said that guns wouldn’t have helped him when his house was broken into because he was “naked at the time” and not wearing a holster. He went on to explain the REAL reason America refuses to take steps to end our epidemic of gun violence:
You have guns because you like guns! That’s why you go to gun conventions; that’s why you read gun magazines! None of you give a shit about home security. None of you go to home security conventions. None of you read Padlock Monthly. None of you have a Facebook picture of you behind a secure door.”
He is exactly right. Ammosexuals are not really worried about keeping their families safe, they just like their penile extensions. It makes them feel powerful and more often than not, their families and our children, are killed by their sick obsession with firearms.
When is enough going to be enough?
