Not to be out done by the Houston Astros the Houston Texans organization is going all out to honor the 19 elementary kids and their 2 teachers that were massacred in Uvalde Texas. According to CNN they will play their opening game with a “Uvalde Strong” sticker on their helmets.
(CNN)The Houston Texans will honor the victims of the Uvalde massacre at Robb Elementary School by wearing an “Uvalde Strong” decal on their helmets during the team’s opening game of the NFL regular season on September 11.
The coach took a knee and said “It’s the least we can do. Literally. I don’t think there is anything less we could do that would give us the feeling of accomplishment after 19 children were slaughtered with a military weapon.”
Actually he didn’t say that but what else could the Houston Texans do besides wearing a sticker, or giving the high school football team tickets to the game even though their school wasn’t the site of a mass murder? What else could they do besides wine and dine those who didn’t lose a child in a preventable massacre? Glad you asked.
Maybe the Texans ought to take a fuckin knee during the National Anthem to bring attention to the lack of common sense gun laws that are killing kids, worshipers, dancers, and people at a parade. Maybe they could call for a moment of yelling to bring attention to the lack of attention by republican leaders to this epidemic of gun violence. Maybe they could stand up and demand our elected officials to take action. Maybe they could use their power to do something besides putting a fuckin sticker on their g*damn helmets and act as if it never happened or will never happen again.
Now, go wash your g*damn hands.
We do thing bigger in Texas including having the biggest liar as our Governor.
It not low enough for Abbott to sign legislation sitting with the head of the NRA to protect guns in Texas right after the Santa Fe shooting. It’s not low enough for Abbott to say “It could have been worse” after 19 children were gunned down with the very weapon Abbott protected. No it’s not low enough for Abbott so he went further.
According to the Houston Chronicle he claimed, incorrectly, that he could not call a special session because it was unconstitutional to raise the age to buy an AR15 from 18 to 21. He thinks we are idiots. There are limits across the country on the age you can purchase an assault weapon. In some states no one can buy an assault weapon. In the United States we had a complete ban on the purchase of assault weapons for 10 full years until the Republican Party let it lapse. So Greg Abbott just fuckin lied to their sad faces.
Even if Abbott was right, and he is not, he could put this to the voters in Texas and amend the Texas Constitution to raise the age to 21 and it would pass 80-20. He could put a complete ban on assault weapon ownership and it would pass 60-40. But it is so much easier to just be like trump and lie like a rotten dog.
The Uvalde parents have been demanding Abbott to call a special session to raise the age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21. The shooter that killed their children was 18 and was able to buy multiple assault weapons and more according to the NYPost he bought:
- Smith and Wesson M&P15 (also an AR-15-style rifle)
- Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 (an AR-15-style rifle)
- 375 rounds of M193, a 5.56mm 55-grain round with a full metal jacket
- 60 30-round magazines,
- a holographic weapon sight
- Hellfire Gen 2 snap-on trigger system
- 1,740 rounds of 5.56mm 75-grain boat tail hollow point
By now if you don’t know who Greg Abbott is then you will never know what he is.
Well, President Joe Biden has asked the right question to the MAGAt Republicans. Whose side are you on?
The Republican Party has flooded our streets with guns including military style weapons, high capacity clips, armor piercing bullets, body armor, and Mafia style silencers and yet they claim to “Back the Blue”. These killing machines strike fear in law enforcement as well as every citizen in the United States.
The Republican Party has embraced open carry of assault weapons in public and expect Law Enforcement to take a chance that the owner is not a mentally ill person waiting to kill police or children. They treat gun ownership like a joke while Police are faced with your jokes on a daily basis.
Republican leaders watched as Police Officers were attacked, beaten, on the steps of the United States Capitol, and did nothing. They watched. Silently. Gleefully. They advocate for riots and violence in defense of their leader, Donald Trump, even when faced with overwhelming evidence provided by the FBI and the Department of Justice.
They refused to call out those in their party and their media mouth pieces when they hint about or justify the use of force against the FBI, IRS, and other members of law enforcement.
It just begs the question: Whose side are you on? Seriously. What the fuck is wrong with you? What the living fuck is wrong with you? In the words of Beto O’Rourke ““It may be funny to you, motherfucker, but it is not funny to me.”
This isn’t funny. You are going to get more people killed with your hateful rhetoric.
