General diary entries

EXHASPERATED

I will regret this little rant later so please forgive me in advance.

What will it take for the American Government to come up with the balls to make an amendment to the constitution and ‘seriously’ reduce or get rid of guns in the hands of the general public?

I can’t believe there has been yet another mass shooting today in Santa Fe.
10 more teens dead.

The gun violence archive is a sickening read.
So far this year there have been 21,779 gun involved incidents, an average of 157 per day!
There have been 5,406 gun related deaths, an average of 39 per day!
Think about that.
273 people are dying because of guns in America every week!!

The number of children aged 0-11 who have been injured or killed by a gun is 233, almost 2 per day.
The number of teens aged 12 – 17 who have been injured or killed by a gun is 962, almost 7 per day.

At this rate we can expect another 36,581 incidents and 9,087 deaths before the end of the year.
1,631 more teenagers and 466 children will be injured or killed before the end of the year.

And I can guarantee that the colossal idiot running the government at the moment will now reiterate what he said after the last school shooting and that is that ‘we need to put guns in the hands of the teachers’….

Yeah right, because what America really needs is MORE fucking guns!!
