Gun fucks [Jul. 27th, 2008|04:16 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Oh, for fuck's sake. I am so tired of hearing, whenever there's tragic gun violence, "This wouldn't have happened if only everyone in that place had been armed!"

It's an argument so obviously full of shit, and those pompous, idiotic gun-fetishists need to shut the fuck up and stop trying to politicize tragedy to justify their own lunacy.

Right-wing gun nuts are fucking assholes.

Exhibits: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc.

A big giant "fuck you" to anyone who says these Unitarians "should have" been packing heat, or who mocks their church as a "gun-free zone". Fuck you all, gun nuts.

PS: Hey, gun fucks! Yeah, you guys there! This post isn't an invitation for you to come and argue with me about this topic. Nope! It's only an invitation for you to go fuck off. So please don't bother trying to reply. Srsly.

PS #2: Since you guys are debating, yes, I identify as transgender::genderqueer, I'm male-bodied, I prefer female pronouns, and yeah, I'd agree that I'm not the best looking person around (although my hair is pretty). Now, what was that you were saying about your desire for tolerance and respectful discussion?

I see this everywhere (online, at least - I'm from a country where handgun ownership isn't as common) and it's absolutely infuriating. Yes, in a magical world where every adult was not only armed but was a perfect shot and kept an absolutely calm head in a terrifying situation, a mass shooting could potentially be ended more quickly. But even in that magical world, the lives that would saved in those incidences would be vastly outnumbered in a single day with all the bar fights that would turn into gunfights, the domestic disputes that would end at the morgue instead of the hospital or police station, playground fights turned deadly, and accidents in the home. The only person to blame in these cases is the gunman. No one "deserves" to be shot for going unarmed or because their parents or teachers go unarmed, and to suggest otherwise is disgusting.
