"My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage," he said during a Tumblr Q&A.Shame indeed.
"This is becoming the norm," he continued about school shootings. "We should be ashamed."
The United States does not have a monopoly on crazy people. It's not the only country that has psychosis. And yet, we kill each other in these mass shootings at rates that are exponentially higher than any place else," he said.
A modern, civilized, Western nation-state sees clearly that there is no good, logical or moral reason for a heavily armed general population. The fact that the United States cannot even keep highly lethal firearms out of the hands of even the insane is indeed a national shame. Furthermore, it's a disgrace. As I said earlier, the insane gun movement has now set its sights on the voting booth, a place that a properly run democracy, must consider sacrosanct. It is so insane that these same people feel it is perfectly okay to threaten federal law enforcement officials executing court orders!
It's time we are clear and blunt: the gun movement is a violent threat to the American way of life. Without question, it is clear, present, and obviously dangerous. Ask two police officers, or scores of innocent children ... if you could.
The fact that our politicians cannot even find a way to protect the general public from massacres committed by the insane is more than a shame; It is dereliction of duty.
