The corporate media exploits and glamorizes tragedies.
The politicians slash the budgets that go to health, education and social services.
The military imposes conquest as a way of life.
The pundits romanticize and lie about our country’s bloody history.
The theocrats blather endlessly about the “importance” of “God”.

But they all bow to the National Rifle Association. The biggest group of enablers and apologists of the maniacs who unleash horror, fear and death in our communities.
In my opinion, the NRA is no better off than a domestic terrorist organization.
I base that supposition on their own public track record on how they respond to national tragedies such as the recent school shooting.

I’m also tired of arguing semantics. People - children - are dead because mentally unstable individuals have easier access to guns than healthcare in this country thanks, in some part, to the lobbying efforts of for-profit organizations like the NRA.

I would like to think that guns can be “well-regulated,” to quote an often misinterpreted amendment, while not infringing on the rights of responsible, sane gun owners.

In my opinion, the NRA like to foment paranoid delusions of “individual rights” being taken away by our government - some of which is indebted to the gun lobby for financial contributions - while avoiding personal responsibility for the consequences of the actions derived from their agendas and policies.

I wish I didn’t have to get so text-heavy on what should be a simple visual commentary, but there it is.

With all that being said, I am not opening this for discussion or debate. This is my account. My post. My opinion. Sorry for being such a jerk about this, but that’s the way it goes.
