Greetings ladies and gents,
Let’s roll down a few topics as we get into the last few days before Christmas. Always a good time of the year to reflect on what has went down in the past 12 months. Excuse me if I load a round into the chamber and discuss a few things here. This is the second day I have worked on this blog because when I finished typing on the first night, it felt flat, full of hot air and I was literally falling asleep as I typed it. I’m not calling it shit, but I will say I needed another round of energy to come back, put a stamp on it and move on. Enjoy and happy fucking holidays friendo’s.
In a way it’s hard to put a wrap on this subject. The feelings that pour out every time I put my kid in that spot still sting and spar with my brain. You can’t just forget about it. 20 kids died because they went to school. The topical discussion is endless. Gun Control? Mental health? What to do about the effects from the trauma of the event? That’s for the suits to decide and me to fire out a few ideas. Every great realization comes from a fierce discussion with my trusted ally and editor, Mr. PJ Nolan. Today, in a few emails and confident debate, we put a few nails in the coffin. First, the two biggest issues at play here. Gun control(freedom to bear arms) and the idea of mental health coming into play with mass murder. It’s impossible to outlaw guns. Forget about it. Attack the personal freedom of Americans and you will lose the world in a second. Restrict, tighten and focus instead on monitoring gun owners.
Since you can’t outlaw guns, you have to fight fire with fire. Taking away a man’s gun is dangerous territory. As I mentioned what seems like a week ago, the time has come to arm up the schools. If my coffee warehouse has more security than a school something is wrong. When are humans at their most fragile? Teenage wasteland. All the shooters in these horrible massacres were as old as 26 and as young as 18. Put armed guards on schools. College, high school and especially elementary. Stopping these things from happening is like I said impossible. All you can do is defense it.
