Do We Just Stand by

and let this violence continue?

How does a 24-year-old get four assault weapons, a gas mask and kevlar into a movie theatre?  I guess the first question is how could purchase these weapons?  Did he store them like the booby  traps in his house?  Did he buy them all at once and the seller didn’t think anything of it? How does the public continue to shake its head and yet doesn’t do anything?  I’m done, oh so done with the non-gun laws.

Hunters go for it.  But for this man to have two glocks, a rifle and another assault weapon on his person to  kill blindly at random?  It’s horrifying that our Governor says it’s a safe city, a safe state, and yet the violence continues.  Denver just had a young  policewoman killed at a concert.  Are we really safe?

Who’s to blame?  Parents? Society? Hollywood? Psychologists? The blind eye?

What does the NRA have to say about all the killings in the US?  It’s just the gun holders’ fault?  “Guns don’t kill people, people do.”  Please!

The violence in the US skyrockets more than any other country in the world.  We make more violent movies and games for young people to view.  We allow guns and bullets to be sold without worry, but glorify the killers.  Something is desperately wrong with our focus.

Do we read about Syria and think, “How sad,” but are dulled to the fact that our neighborhoods are mini-war regions? Twelve people were killed today in a movie theatre, 59 wounded, some critically, so the death toll may grow.  Is any place safe from the killers?  A grocery store? A park concert? A movie? A household? A school?  The tragedies continue.

Until we tighten our gun laws, our “war zones” will continue.  Maybe we don’t ban guns, then we ban bullets.  NRA, it’s the bullets that kill, believe me.

I’m horrified at this senseless act.  Aren’t you?  Where do we go to ban weapons?  It’s appalling to think that someone with only a speeding ticket in 2011 has his focus on mass killings.  What’s wrong here?  I don’t know.  I don’t have an answer, but I do know that we need to do something, and do it now.

To all the families, my sympathy and condolences.

Who’ll “walk” with me?  I’m pissed! I’m saddened!  I’m beyond words….
