What kind of monster goes into a church to kill people? Are we as a nation expected to accept these random acts of violence as part of living in our new, and violent, free society?
Combined with the extremism of ideas, the cult of the gun has become the new American terrorism. The angry lunatic used to be ridiculed and ignored in America. Now they have a voice, emboldened by the fight to make sure that our rights are not infringed upon in the slightest.
Guns will not make us free. They will not keep us safe in our homes. Guns will not protect us from the tyranny of government. This is not freedom. We are living under the new tyranny of the gun.
