The day after the mass murder in Orlando, Florida.
I want to know why we have had 133 mass murders in 164 days already this year.
I want to know why the US has not removed, confiscated, melted down automatic weapons, machine guns, assault rifles, etc from the population.
I want to know why Americans are obsessed with guns and gun ownership.
I want to know why anyone feels the need to kill with impunity.
I want to know why people are allowed to own, sell, gift, use machine guns. What possible use do they have?
I want to know why we do not have a law that says that if a politician wants to wage war, they must go into hand to hand combat with their opponent. I want to know why we subject innocent people to warfare when we have no quarrel with each other.
I want to understand why people feel they must make everyone else conform to their own vision of the world; why it seems so impossible to live and let live, to do no harm.
I want to understand why so many people are living in fear, and why so many people feel the need to act out in extreme violence because they do not feel heard, or recognized.
I want to know why the abrahamic religions are all interpreted through the lens of intolerance.
"Thoughts and Prayers" useless claptrap without community action.
