Hi, I’m that quiet guy that everyone ignores. Times have changed, I can no longer get guns or ammo, my country felt that guns were the root cause for so many unwarranted and useless deaths. Well, in part maybe.
Funny thing is, as I have quietly been ignored, I read, and I mean I read a lot! I learned how to make pipe bombs and other powerful explosives from every day items I can get at Lowes, or Home Depot, or Insert your favorite hardware store here.
Yah, that’s it. I’ll just blow up a school, or train station, or whatever is in my way when something triggers my psychopathic tendencies. Ya, guns are too slow anyway, not impactful enough.
No, this is not a pro gun rant, but if you really think guns are the issue here, you’re not thinking deep enough. The reality is when it’s not guns anymore, it will be something else, and then something else.
We love to push blame. We love to put bandaids on the compound fractures of life. Sorry to tell you folks, this is way more complicated than picking your next scapegoat.
In the end, we need to do a better job of understanding the risk anyone poses to OUR society. Why was this guy able to snap and cause the misery he caused today? There were no signs he was a wack job? I call bullshit! What did I, you, we do wrong to allow this?
We need to be held accountable as a people, I don’t think we’re doing the best we can, not even close. It’s a sad day for the loved ones of 18 children, our world, and the human race because we love to push blame.
This is the world our children and children’s children will live in. We are failing indeed!
