  •  Hey, LaPierre (6+ / 0-)

    See if you can get this image out of your brain.

    I can't.

    Every American, both pro- and anti-gun, needs to have the mental motion picture of 20 babies and 6 adults being systematically executed in cold blood, in rapid succession, looping through their brains at 24 frames per second until we get to a point in this country when such an incident is no longer possible.  

    The events of December 14th, 2012 in Newtown, Ct. are not abstract, though they become so when the debate is sanitized.  We cannot, as a country, afford to sanitize the picture in this instance.  There needs to be a true visual shock to the national consciousness.  And then we need to move past shock.

    Anger and resolve on a national scale are the key emotions that will be required in order to force some rational decision making.  The path forward needs to lead to an end point where no single civilian citizen in this country has the capability of creating death-by-gun on the scale of Sandy Hook.

    The second amendment does NOT confer the right of a single person to possess the capability of mass slaughter.  If such a person has a Muslim sounding name, we call them a terrorist.  While "LaPierre" is not an Islamic surname, the organization he fronts is developing the characteristics of a large jihadi cell.

    "Mitt who? That's an odd name. Like an oven mitt, you mean? Oh, yeah, I've got one of those. Used it at the Atlas Society BBQ last summer when I was flipping ribs."

      That would wake America the F up.

      I realize it may be disrespectful but those children were minced meat when all was said and done and the public should see what happens.

      Instead, everything is either "re-enacted" Hollywood style or people just have an image in their head - one that won't let them go to the real place.... where pieces of children are laid to waste..
