The other day I saw an ant hill outside my front door, so I made a pot of coffee and poured all over that hill. Today they are all dead.
Mass murder of ants. I have no regrets, I had easy access to a weapon and of course who cares about ants.
Last night a violent man with easy access to a weapon and who was told over and over that gay people are less than human went and murdered a lot of people.
Access to an AR 15 didn’t cause this, it just made it easier. Religion didn’t cause this, it just made it easier. A history of violence didn’t cause this, it just made it easier.
There isn’t one cause for any of this. In the end a complicated juxtaposition of issues that came together in one man who choose murder as an outlet.
If he had a better childhood, or counseling, or restrictions on guns, or a better understanding of God maybe things would have been better. But, he didn’t have those things.
Do you want to prevent this from happening again? Choose one or more of the above and make it better.
