why i'm quitting facebook ... for now

I can't take it anymore.

Twenty children and their teachers were murdered.

And you want to talk about your right to own a gun.

I really hope my dad isn't reading this, because I'd like to share my sentiments:


No one wants to take away your stupid hand gun. No one wants to take away your shot gun. But I, for one, think that no one, for any good reason, needs a semi-automatic weapon.

If you want one, get help.

They are killing machines. They are not designed to protect you. They are designed with one purpose in mind - death.

And what is with this idiotic notion that school shootings would go away if teachers had guns? Seriously? You think kids can't overpower adults and take weapons? More importantly, you think a child will feel safe learning from someone with a gun on their hip? Fucking idiots.

Stop using this opportunity to criticize the President and give your opinion. Shut the fuck up and realize THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU! Of course the grieving families need to hear that something will be done. It's the President's job to comfort the nation. If you can't sleep at night knowing that you aren't allowed to own a damn machine of human destruction, you need more than a gun. You need professional help.

May God bless the souls of the little children who were lost, the teachers who died protecting them, the families who are empty without them, and the people who think this tragedy is somehow going to hurt them because they won't be allowed to purchase a weapon that can rip (pun intended) a person apart.

And I hope my dad forgives me for saying fuck so many times.
