Skip to comments.Our sick gun fetish is destroying us: Tea Party fantasies kill kids

Maybe youve heard about the bullet fee that was supposedly charged to the families of prisoners executed by gunfire. The fee, which is almost certainly an urban legend, has been attributed at various times to Bolshevik revolutionaries and the governments of Iran and China.
But even if the bullet fee is mythical, there is a very real price to be paid when a society becomes intoxicated by gunplay. What price have we paid for the bullets fired at Newtown and in the year since that tragedy?
The financial estimates only scratch the surface.

I can’t stomach it. That applies to pretty much everything from Salon.
Richard Eskow is a pathetic, sissified, little commie maggot. JMO. Hey Dick, if you can’t take the freedom, get the hell out. North Korea is nice this time of year, sissy boy.
Project much Eskow?
The shooters are nearly 100% Liberals, the harsh reality hurts the sick twisted mind of little Dick.
Interestingly, all of the mass shooters have been lefties, not TEA Party members.
“The shooters are nearly 100% Liberals, the harsh reality hurts the sick twisted mind of little Dick.”
BINGO. The L.A. shooter for example, worshipped obama. not one media lefty outlet reported that.
Yes, funny how that works out.
Once the media finds out the politics of the shooter, they shut up and focus on GUNS.
I really can't remember a mass shooter who was anything BUT a leftist.
But the MSM is just lying in wait until that happens.
the dangerous part isn’t citizens being able to defend themselves...
it’s ignoring the mentally ill until they go batsh*t and start killing people
all shooting involving medicated people are the direct fault of the dems and their policies
A socialist just shot up a school.
When I was in college, there were some who questioned the archery program, the shooting club was disbanded, and the gun racks disappeared.
When I was building cannons with my brother while I was in elementary school, I felt safe. In junior high, I'd be with a few other kids carving with our knives between classes, and I felt somewhat safe. In high school, sometimes people even worried about sharp pencils and bars started appearing around the campus, along with tall fences, and I felt far less safe. In the last year, when the archery club was disbanded, guns were forbidden in cars on campus, and an officer was stationed at the school was the most violent year I ever spent in school. Minor rivalries turned into huge brawls, and twice the school bus was shot on the way to an away game.
We spend too much effort 'making our kids safe.' All we end up doing is making it safe for the criminals to prey upon them. And for liberals who live in their fantasy worlds, they will never look at the world around them for answers. They won't examine how it was, because that reality runs counter to their pretend world.
That sure is a lot of bs for one short paragraph.
Salon.com... that website is a portal for sick fetishes if there ever was one. Still... I think I will stick to my regular pron sites, thanks.
Interesting how they calculate the cost to society of gun ownership. I guess they didn’t factor in the +100 million disarmed civilians who lost their lives in the last century.
Obviously a matter of opinion.
"Our clueless, as well as sick anti-gun Bloomingidiot fetish kill lots of kids.
Also a matter of opinion.
The results will define reality. And fortunately only one of these two opinions will match reality. Unfortunately the laws in the high crime states almost exclusively choose the former suicidal option.
With time, reality will define the rational option.
When seconds count, the "professional defenders" of society are just minutes away!
The Left has fantasies and pipe dreams—of shoes and ships and sealing-wax—of cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings. I’m surprised they haven’t said the Earth was flat and the sun rotated around the Earth. Of course, there is no fantasy about killing human beings in the womb.
Articles that explain how modern liberals suffer from a mental disorder.
