This will be short. I promise. How many times do we have to go through this? A lone sad, pathetic loser, or a couple of them get themselves all lathered up, buy high powered semi automatic weapons and create another mass atrocity. The nation and world reels, and it dominates the news cycle for a day or two. But what happens next? Every goddamn time?
The next step is as carefully staged and scripted as the third act of "Hamilton". Somewhere between 36 to 72 hours after the tragedy, the ultimate human Port-A-Potty, Wayne LaPierre slimes his way up to a podium and adds the inevitable NRA spin. Their sympathy, prayers and support are with the victims and their families. And then the part you can set your goddamn watch to. Come on guys and gals, sing along with Wayne! "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun".
Really Wayne? I mean, fucking REALLY?!? Gonna need some new material. This time around, when the scumbag entered the club with his armory, there was a fully armed, fully trained off duty Orlando cop, in full uniform moonlighting to provide security. He engaged the shooter but had to be cautious because of the civilians all over the pace. The shooter went back outside and was confronted by two more Orlando cops with guns drawn, and exchanged fire with them, but again they were constrained out of concern for civilian casualties. And so, he was able to slaughter 50 innocent people and injure 53 more. And you know why? Because, unlike the douche bag with the AR-15, the Orlando cops did give a shit about innocent life! As it is, it will take days of autopsies and ballistic checks to determine how many if any of the victims were wounded or killed by crossfire when the SWAT team finally managed to breach a lounge wall and move in en masse, with 11 different officers discharging their weapons.
So please, enlighten me on this Wayne. How many innocent, carefree revelers needed to be packing heat to have brought down one pathetic diaper stain with an AR-15? And how many more innocent party goers would have been mowed down in the panic fueled crossfire from all the amateur Rambo's trying to make their bones? This really is your only sane solution?!?
Wayne LaPierre. Professional soulless asshole.
