NRA: “Guns Are More Important Than Children”

I don’t understand the problem with the new gun legislation. I don’t understand the argument of “you can’t take my guns. If you ban certain kinds of guns you should ban cars too because cars kill people, too.” It’s idiotic thinking, it’s a flawed argument and frankly I’m sick of hearing it.

After the Newtown shooting I was down for the count. I couldn’t take another shooting, I couldn’t take living in a country where this happened and people’s first response was “get more guns!” I couldn’t. I fought on the side of stricter gun laws. I went through the crazed maze of people throwing nonsense at me and getting angry and name calling when I asked for facts and statistics to prove their argument. I guess this is one argument that will only be fought on the battlefield of emotion. I don’t know why this country is so against statistics and facts. I don’t know why we are so threatened by them. The minute you give a number or a fact someone comes at you with “well they got rid of 60 oz. sodas too!” That happened. That was an argument put to me, when I asked what that had to do with AR’s and AK’s the response was “I should have the right to choose a 60 oz. soda and I should have a right to choose an AK”. When did we get so entitled?

Everyone throws the Constitution around. I have a Constitutional right to bear arms! I have a Constitutional right to freedom of speech! What people forget is that Constitution was written when there was a real threat of the Government coming into your home and hurting you with their bare hands. It was written at a time when men needed guns in the house to protect their families from real tyranny and dangers. They didn’t have ADT security back then, their guns where their alarms. Oh, and that Constitution guaranteeing your freedom of speech was written when men didn’t say “fuck” in front of women and children out of respect. It was written in a different time to people that could handle those responsibilities. We have proven that we haven’t earned these rights and certainly cannot handle them. If you think I’m wrong let me present exhibit A:
Neil Heslin, the father of a 6-year-old boy who was slain in the …

Department of V.A. Discriminating Against Navy Vet

There are some laws in existence that don’t make sense to me and even some that I flat out disagree with, but I understand that it’s my responsibility as an American citizen to follow said laws. After all, if a bunch of people just started to ignore laws they didn’t understand or thought were asinine, chaos would ensue after awhile.

And if this makes sense to me, a mere citizen of the United States, one would think that it’d be a no-brainer for the U.S. government, but …

Well, it’s not.

Connecticut’s Carmen Cardona, an eighteen year Navy Veteran and a lesbian married to her “longtime female partner”, has been denied spousal disability bennies for her wife …

Carolyn Maloney, a US Representative from New York, has a plan to truly make women’s rights official. Maloney’s idea came about with the help of Lily Ledbetter of the 2009 Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and Eleanor Smeal, Foundation President of the Feminist Majority. The three women are set on passing the Equality Rights Amendment.

Women’s equality, protected by the constitution, seems elementary doesn’t it? In fact, many people believe that women’s rights are …

Escalating Tea Party Violence Didn’t Begin With Lauren Valle

Perhaps the only bright point of the recent deplorable head-stomping incident at the recent debate between Rand Paul and Jack Conway is that it has perhaps started to open the eyes of sane and normal Americans to how truly dangerous some of the Tea Partiers really are.

You see, it turns out this was not an isolated incident, with an October 15th attack on a protester at a Washington State Tea Party stalwart’s headquarters flying beneath the radar until Lauren Valle’s unspeakable treatment at the hands of a bunch of nuts in Kentucky.

You know, the Tea Party was kind of funny to me for a long time. The sheer ignorance existing within their ranks just has …
