Columbine, Safeway, AMC, Temple Sikh, Empire State Building. They need to be renamed: Columbine Shooting Range, Safeway Shooting Range, AMC Shooting Range, Temple Sikh Shooting Range, Empire State Shooting Range on 34th Street and open daily to sitting ducks.
If we’re not going to ban guns and bullets, can we at least ban thoughts and prayers? I want a constitutional ban on all politicians bowing their heads after a shooting and saying the victims are “in my thoughts and prayers.”
I don’t want your thoughts and prayers. I want your actions and laws or I want to treat these shootings like it’s my “God Given Right” to treat them, as if they’re not really happening.
Incidentally, there are no “God Given Rights.” Your rights were given to you by men who wrote with quills on parchment while wearing powdered wigs. In other words, your rights were given to you by Drag Queens, not God.
One last thing, I would ask The Chicago Tribune, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Daily Beast, CNN, MSNBC and FOX to do the right thing, as long as you’re not going to hold either candidate’s feet to the fire with forceful questions which push them outside of their comfort zone on gun control, please take “Shooting at Empire State Building” off the masthead.
It’s not a ratings bonanza. It’s a tragedy. I’m not talking about the shooting. I’m talking about the silence.
