Nah, The US Doesn’t Have A Terrible Gun Problem. The Mass Shooting In Raleigh, North Carolina Says Otherwise

Americans need to wake up and fix their Gun problem

Gun problem mass shooting

Just how many people have to die in order for the Americans to wake up and crack down on their obvious gun problem? If the entire world looking in at the US can see that they have a gun problem when mass shooting reports are a daily thing, why can’t they?

There was another mass shooting in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the gunman was just a 15-year-old kid! How does a kid get… you know what, I’m not even going to finish that sentence because the answer is obvious. And if you need somebody to spell it out for you then you are part of the problem.

Five people were killed by a 15-year-old shooter who opened fire along a walking trail in North Carolina’s capital city on Thursday and eluded police for hours before he was cornered in a home and arrested, police said.
A handgun and a long gun were recovered after the shooting, during which the suspect wore camouflage and carried a camouflage backpack, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.
One of the victims killed was an off-duty Raleigh police officer, Gabriel Torres, 29, who was on his way to work, authorities said.

Society is screwed if you can’t even go out for a walk on a gosh darn walking trail! And pointing fingers at the 15-year-old’s parents instead of society and the obvious gun problem is nothing but denial of the real problem. Americans and their politicians need to get their heads out of their asses.

I am aware that not all Americans are turning a blind eye and are fed up with all the mass shootings, but just being upset isn’t going to save any lives. Getting up off your asses and actually doing something about it will. Voting the right people into office, demanding change by your elected officials. Not posting Facebook posts saying your thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, that’s pointless and egotistical.

US Mass Shooting reports

There are Mass Shooting reports every single day in America, sometimes several in one day. Why do politicians continue to deny what’s right in front of them? Why do people still think it’s more important to be allowed to own a gun and not a person to be allowed to live? That’s fucked up!

I get so triggered when there is a mass shooting and some government official stands up in front of the media’s cameras and says, “We need to wake up!” Well, no shit Sherlock! You are the literal person in charge that has the power to do something about it, yet you give Thoughts and Prayers instead. more like YOU need to wake the fuck up!

The mass shooting in Raleigh came one day after two police officers were killed and another seriously wounded while responding to a call of a domestic disturbance in Bristol, Connecticut.

“Enough,” President Joe Biden said in a statement Friday. “We’ve grieved and prayed with too many families who have had to bear the terrible burden of these mass shootings.”

The President added, “We must pass an assault weapons ban. The American people support this commonsense action to get weapons of war off our streets.”

Maybe old Joe should add a stricter gun law to that assault weapon ban too. Since a 15-year-old can acquire a handgun and rifle so easily and commit a mass shooting on a walking trail.

Conclusion…

Conclusion

All I can do is rant about this fucking topic because I have no power to do anything about America’s gun violence. Living here in Canada looking in on the US and just being able to shake my head in disgust and disbelief is all we can do here. The rest of the world has already set an example of how strict gun laws are working in other countries, but the gun nuts would rather ignore it and just keep their guns and let innocent people get killed.

Sure, most gun laws aren’t perfect and there might be a gun-related incident, but it’s not as bad as it is to the south of the border. That is what I can’t understand as to why they don’t see that.

Well, I’ve said what I wanted to say here on this soap box. Post a comment below about what you think about the US Gun problem. Would you give up your gun if it meant saving lives? And don’t give me that bullshit line about good guys with guns either, that’s already been proven not to work.
