So it turns out this latest mass-shooting motherfucker got his hands on guns through legal dealers four fucking times because the fucking Air Force could not be fucking bothered to actually fucking report to fucking NICS the fact that he had been convicted and served time for domestic violence, and received a bad-conduct discharge thereby.
He managed to merrily waltz through the cracks because fucking Federal government agencies didn't see fit to talk to each other. This isn't even the first time this has happened! See: the Charleston Church shooter, with his pending felony drug charge someone in the FBI missed before saying "Sure, sell that guy a gun, he's fine."
I would like for anyone to tell me anything the government does actually well (besides waste money), and then fucking explain to me why you want to give more power to people who can't find their asses with both hands and a million-lumen flashlight. They can't even wield the power they already have with a bare modicum of competence. You trust them? FUCKING WHY??? Do you think a head will actually roll over this? I wouldn't hold my breath, because it's the government.
And you want to disarm me and make me less able to defend myself against fuckers like these? Do I need to enumerate the number of times a mass shooter (or attempted mass shooter, because how many of them get stopped before they get as far as "mass"? Lots) has been thwarted by a good guy with a gun, as happened in this case? How about these folks? Which of them are you willing to let die because you think that "getting rid of guns" (because you can somehow put three hundred million genies like that back in their respective fucking bottles) will magically solve the problem?
As for you sanctimonious assholes pooh-poohing Thoughts and Prayers by saying "Well, if prayer worked then this wouldn't have happened because they were in Prayer Central"? You can just shut the fuck up and crawl back into your ugly little holes under your ugly little rocks. People are already hurting and you find it appropriate to shit on their faith while you're at it? Fuck you, the horse you rode in on, and your little dog too.
