Not Much to Say


I can’t write when I’m angry. It’s no different than trying to talk to someone when you’re mad. You say things you don’t mean, you cuss, your sentences make no sense and nothing gets solved.

I’m mad…again. I’ll stay mad for at least a few days and then the anger fades because life gets in the way. Or until there’s another mass shooting.
Then I’ll be angry again.

I hate living in a country full of shruggers. We shrug every time it happens.

Yes, I know I can leave, move, and get out. I want to. I probably will, but I can’t now. I have obligations. So I have to live with you insane people.

I think about my grand-kids in college. No college is a safe haven now.

I don’t want to move to Australia…too far. But, they had gun problems, like we do. Between 1978 and 1996 Australia had 13 mass shootings taking 112 lives. THEN…in 1996 one crazed dude with a semi-automatic killed 35 people and seriously wounded 18 others. Australians got tired of shrugging. Over extreme protests from a lot of white guys who mix up their gun with their dick, they passed a law banning automatic and semi-automatic weapons. They bought back 643,000 weapons.

Since 1996 they have had NO MASS SHOOTINGS.

We don’t have a problem, we just have cowards in Washington.

And please don’t point to our founding fathers and their second amendment. What a joke. Our founding fathers had muskets. I think we should all have muskets…period.

    My daughter is planning on attending college in Oregon next year. My son was at BC yesterday. All I could think was what if he’d chosen another place… I have no words to express my anger and frustration.

    Of course it’s a terrible thing, whenever and wherever this happens. But the Roseburg shooting is close to home for us in our summer spot of Coos Bay, OR. It’s saddening and angering that this country has kow-towed to the NRA.

      On May 27, 1999, Wayne LaPierre testified before a House Judiciary Subcommittee stating that he and his group, the NRA, believe that… and I will print his quote, “it’s reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show.” What happened?

    Late: this is also one of my concerns….. I also am tired of the folks who scream about the 2nd Amendment…….a refresher in Civics should be mandatory! If guns aren’t outlawed, they should at least be limited……..

    • bakoheat says:

      Civics. Wow, is that the classes we used to teach high school kids about the obligations and privileges of being a citizen of this country? You’re right, mandatory. It should also be mandatory to each Finance and while we’re at it, nothing wrong with Home Ec and Shop either. Thanks for writing, Elizabeth.
