We survived Bush. You will survive Obama

You have to be out of your mind to think it’s okay to teach kids how to use a gun. You don’t need a gun to defend yourself, mace and physical defense do the deed just fine. Teaching kids how to shoot leads to accidents like the deaths of a gun instructor, suicide, and mass shootings.

Wrong. A society that glorifies violence perpetuates violence.
I shot my first gun when I was 6 and I’ve never shot anyone.
America is a nation that glorifies violence in media and lets names like Adam Lanza cover every headline for even YEARS after the act was committed.
The reason these shootings happen is because people immortalize the fuckers who do that shit.
I know plenty of kids who have been shooting rifles and pistols since we were all young, and it doesn’t make shootings any more likely.
That range death was sheer parental negligence, but that is not the mentality of almost any gun owner in the united states. That was also an ACCIDENT.
There are also stories of kids driving their parents cars and wrecking them, but you don’t see “ban cars, Protect the childrenz” campaigns, give me a fucking break.

And I’d like to see you judo kick a shooter from 15 yards away.
Good luck stopping crime in the real world.

Covering tragedies in order to try and prevent them from happening again is not “glorifying violence”. You obviously need to study the real reasons why these mass shootings happen because only a few were looking for attention and there is an easy access to guns in this country. 

And what, we’re just supposed to let another “accident” happen again? Kids are no safer with guns than they are without them, in fact most gun deaths/accidents happen INSIDE THEIR OWN HOME. When one has a gun in their house, they are more likely to shoot themselves or someone else than actually stop a robber. 

Cars aren’t created for the sole purpose of murder. Guns are.

So if someone tries to shoot me I can mace them then use kung fu on them from 50 feet away?

I love the illogical reasoning of a sheeple.

Oh yes, we must be sheeple for wanting people to be safe from a weapon created for the sole purpose of murder. Also, if you try to shoot someone who is shooting you that leads to either a) a shootout with more deaths or b) you having to get lucky.

Welcome to the Republican Party, where Obama must be sued for “over-stepping boundaries” but Obama must also solve the border crisis himself.

Welcome to the Democratic Party, where its leaders are not accountable of their actions and shouldn’t be expected to do their job within their constitutional limitations.

Welcome to the Republican Party, where leaders cannot do their jobs without people saying that it’s “against the constitution” just because they don’t like the idea of healthcare

What kind of fucking weirdos share a pro abortion blog?

pro-choice-or-no-voice:

steve-blogs:

Or pro choice or whatever they call it. That’s just fucking weird.

'Oh boy, I sure can't wait to get home and blog about abortion!'

Kids these days.

People who believe in human rights and feel that everyone deserves to have abortion de-stigmatized. People who believe that everyone deserves a safe place for their voices to be heard and recognized, a place to share information and to answer questions. 

If that’s what constitutes a ‘fucking weirdo’ I don’t want to be right.

  • fetuses do not think
  • they do not “scream out” when they are aborted
  • they have no brain function and no nerve endings until long after the deadline for a legal abortion
  • they aren’t “sad” when you abort them
  • they do not “realize what is happening”

And these aren’t my beliefs, they’re scientific facts

Crucial marijuana legislation is coming to three states soon. Is yours one of them?

Marijuana should totally be legalized because it is not as bad as alcohol or cigatarettes. It’s hypocritical.
