Gun Culture’s Messed Up Priorities

I’m stunned by the idea that someone can “rent a gun”…

It is believed that Alexis had rented an AR-15, but returned it before Monday morning’s shootings.

This concept simply reeks of the messed up priorites of our gun culture. The implications of renting and gun, “using” it and then returning it, gives me a chilling perspective of the mindset that started this trend. 

Here’s the bottom line folks, “Navy Yard massacre should move Americans to more than sorrow.”

Senator Diane Feinstein has got it right:

“This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons — including a military-style assault rifle — and kill many people in a short amount of time. When will enough be enough?” Feinstein asked in a statement.

She added: “Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”

    He rented the gun at a range for use on the range. He did not leave the range with it. He tried to buy it but couldn’t because of Virginia gun laws.

    Feinstein shot off her mouth about the ‘assault rifle’ when all he had was Joe Biden’s suggested shotgun. How can anyone engage in thoughtful debate with that mindless zombie?

    Wow. That first comment proves that the conservatives have really gone off the rail with the NRA. I am SO sick of hearing how ‘the liberals’ are gonna take away your guns!! If just one thing is changed to stop MAD MEN from getting their hands of weapons. They (NRA) once said that they were FOR background checks…not anymore. Why? Well, because they can. They have brainwashed, YES brainwashed (I said it!) the whole right wing of this country believing that the ‘government’ is going to knock down their doors in the middle of the night and take their guns. Really? How can people be so damn gullible? Don’t they know that almost 40% of ‘liberals’ own guns? (according the gallup). So, pray tell, WTF???
    I just have to say, turn off Fox news, stop reading the lies and half truths the NRA is sending you (I have read it…my father is a ‘reluctant’ member’), and maybe just TALK to a liberal and really find out what they think. We don’t bite. Really.
