Trumps rhetoric doesn’t incite me to violence.

But the leftists call for banning firearms and confiscating them by force surely does.


That aside, the fact of the matter is, mass shooters are evil scumbags. Both sides of the political spectrum have whack jobs waiting to fall from the crazy tree. No one side has a monopoly on bat-poop insane dirt bags.

If you doubt me, and you’re a conservative/libertarian like me, read the comments on a Fox News articles sometime. It’s every bit as frothing insane as the comments on a CNN article bashing people on the right.

The difference with mass killers now, compared to the past, is that these scumbags are more aware of how to play a biased media and divided country by ‘playing the part’ by simply following certain people on social media, posting conflicting statements, and knowing that their actions will be scrutinized and nitpicked by douche nozzles looking to score political points or push an agenda.

And if you’re one of these political hacks who breathlessly awaits the announcement of a shooters race or victim’s race/political identity so you can pounce on the ‘DESTROY THE NRA!’ bandwagon… or conversely, the ‘LIBTARDS R THE WORST!’  you all suck. You’re part of the problem. You play right into the hands of the killer who seeks to not only kill but sow discord and discontent.

Stop being stupid.

And for those of you who think confiscating firearms are the solution, and there’s a lot of people out there who want to do it by force.. people who literally want to have police kill me because I own firearms… you’re a bunch of clowns and you’re going to get good people killed. I feel like I’ve argued against gun control my entire adult life, and I’ve grown bored and tired of it. Simply  put – numerically, if you confiscate 99% of the 400,000,000 firearms in the U.S, you’re still going to have 4 MILLION guns in the hands of some very pissed off people.

So maybe we should find real solutions.

Like much more mental health services, fixing society’s self-centered/glamour/social media fame complex, bringing fathers back into their kids homes, and bringing God back into the center of American life.
