America's Gun Violence Epidemic Kills Or Injures 10,000 Kids Annually

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away … or a minute away?" Wayne LaPierre, NRA president.

Here's the problem, Wayne:

"America's Gun Violence Epidemic" is a collection of stories about our gun problem in Rolling Stone, one of them titled, "How to Beat the NRA In 7 (Not-So-Easy) Steps."...why don't you take a peek at it.

"The NRA remains one of the most formidable forces in American political life. But it is not bulletproof. Since the massacres in Aurora and Newtown, states from New York and Maryland to Colorado and California have made modest progress against the gun lobby, passing a raft of new laws aimed at reducing gun violence. There are sharp lessons to be learned from these victories, and even more important ones to be gleaned from the playbook of the NRA itself. The seven strategies below can empower gun-control advocates to stop bemoaning their helplessness, and start carrying the day..."

Is the NRA keeping you awake at night?

Here's a solution...

"I started a topless gun protest because ammo-sexuals still won't shut up."

"Open-carry advocates won't stop at Target and Chipotle? Fine. I'll stop wearing a shirt. Do I have your attention now?"

"I have lived in Austin for 35 years, and I have seen some weird shit here. But when my friend Lola and I decided on Saturday that enough is enough with the kind of people who take out their guns for play dates, I have to admit that it was my first time actually seeing that particular kind of people ... in person.

"In person, and while I was topless..."

And the ammosexuals went ballistic...

Here...and here.

Oh, and here:


Over 10,000 unjustified homicides by firearms per year is over 10,000 too many, and 10,000 children killed or injured by guns every year is 10,000 also too many.

Wayne LaPierre's NRA is responsible for all off them and the NRA's Conservative stooges in Congress can take the blame too.

They're murderers hiding behind a false interpretation of the only conditional Amendment in the Constitution, and common wisdom tells us that murderers should be put behind bars -- or executed.

Before we kill even more of our citizens and their children, criminalize Conservatism -- NOW.


"We [the NRA] are the largest civil rights organization in the world."

Wayne LaPierre, NRA president.
