Gun Control – You Tell 'Um New York Times!

Guns, violence, and threat of death have always been tactics of hierarchies to keep people in line. It is time for people who want to keep hierarchies alive and kicking, causing so many of us to no longer be alive and kicking, to stop being the decision-makers when it comes to guns.

 In a strong and bold opinion piece, the New York Times today said, "The attention and anger of Americans should also be directed at the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms."

"It is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency."

"Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens."
