Because you don’t stop with his guns. You want everyone’s gun. People who have broken no laws. That’s what the problem is. You want to take crazy guy’s guns fine. You want to flag him so he can’t buy one. Fine. But you can’t throw the baby out with the bath water.
You say “fine, you can take crazy man’s guns.”
But the NRA says “How dare you take away crazy man’s guns! Crazy man deserves his 2nd amendment rights as a red blooded American. And simply because he says he will murder people is no reason to infringe on his rights.”
I am super Liberal in most things. The one exception, I support the 2nd amendment. In general I believe if you want a gun, you should be able to get one.
But the NRA drives me batty! They act like preventing insane people from obtaining guns is the first step to the army braking down each gun holder’s door to take away everyone’s guns.
It’s too much. I am happy to do a back ground check. I am happy to register my weapon. I don’t think a national database would bring about the gunpocolypse.
I got a dog! She is a 4 year old dachshund mix. Her name is Princess Sofia (Sofi for short). She is only 9.4lbs but she snores like a lumberjack. I got her Friday night and she is so precious.
I don’t care if you are:
- male or female
- young or old
- yogi, lifter, weight loss, ED recovery or self-love focused
All I care about is that you share details of your physical or mental fitness program and want to help and learn from others.
Check out the blogs that reblog this. Last time I found some real gems and I am sure you will too. :)
John - AKA Fatman in a little suit
Over 200 girls were abducted and could possibly be sold as sex slaves for trying to get an education.
A high school girl was stabbed and killed for rejecting a boy’s invitation to prom.
Six women were murdered because a boy thought “blonde sluts” deserved revenge for not having sex with him.
All of them happened just within the past 3-4 months.
When will people realize that misogyny does not exist in a vacuum? When will people realize that misogyny kills?
And I want to be clear, when we are talking about misogyny we are not saying “All men want to rape and murder women.” Most men are sickened by the idea of being violent with a woman.
We are saying “The systematic classifying of women as less than means that women are more likely to be victimized in our society.”
So when you make a “make me a sandwich” type joke you are contributing to the atmosphere of misogyny that then makes these men believe that kidnapping, rape, and murder are Ok because women need to be “put in their place”.
