Isn’t it time to just move on?
Sure 21 families have been devastated by the shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde Texas. 19 children and 2 teachers lost their lives, some had their entire heads blown off, others sat in a pool of blood crying out for their mommies, but enough is enough. It’s been 5 months already and it is time to do exactly what we did after the Sandy Hook shooting that took the lives of 28 6 year olds. Just forget and vote republican.
Everyone else has moved on. The Houston Astros had a baseball game for the Uvalde survivors. That was enough. The Houston Texans also had a game dedicated to the families. They even wore Uvalde Strong stickers on their helmets! Stickers! What more could we ask for? Our republican officials moved on immediately after the shooting. Not one of them offered thoughts and prayers. Not one, but they quickly looked for a scapegoat and found over 150 of them. Over 150 school, city, county, and state law enforcement officers where quick to be blamed for screwing up their response, listening to the children screaming in horror while they failed to confront the gun nut with a military weapon that could rip through their body armor. Many of them have been fired. Many will have nightmares for life. Most probably voted republican, the very party that put that weapon in the hands of an 18 year old. Now they will be held accountable by the republicans they voted for.
So it is time to move on. Vote republican so they can continue to protect the rights of an 18 year old to buy a military weapon, hundreds of rounds of ammo that can rip a body apart, high capacity clips, body armor, and silencers. All of these purchases are legal in Texas no questions asked. This 18 year old can walk around in public and the police, the very ones that didn’t charge the shooter, cannot ask if they have a license or training to own a military weapon because in Texas you do not need a license or training.
State Representative Dennis Paul has refused to take any meaningful action on gun violence (he didn’t even offer thoughts and prayers after Uvalde) Paul must think that the lives of 19 little Mexican kids is a small price to pay to continue to protect an 18 year olds rights to military killing machines.
So, be like Dennis. Bury your head in your hands and go vote for republicans and join Dennis in hell. After all it wasn’t your kids that got their faces blown off. Why should you care?
Needless to say, I’m done being nice about this.
The party of thoughts and prayers.
