I'm Still Here
Hey it’s the holiday season and what not so now I have time to blog and do other secret stuff again. Isn't that great?
I’m keeping this first post short because it’s my blog to do what I want with. However, I do have a few things to say about that tragedy that’s been in the news these days. Obviously a guy who’d write an article like this isn't too sentimental but come on, this is different. Maybe it was seeing all the kids in the airport on the way back home. Maybe it was seeing Lincoln and how politics can actually get stuff done sometimes. In any case, there are way better places to read about this issue than on this vanity blog but if articles like this don’t make it clear enough, I’m really liberal and I have an opinion about this.
People say this shouldn't be a political issue but it is. To say we shouldn't be talking about this on a policy level only enables the forces that allow things like this to keep happening. People blame violent movies and games while saying plenty of other things besides guns kill people like knives and cars. The difference is movies and games entertain, knives cut vegetables and cars get you from here to there. Guns are only for killing people. For me, to be against at least restricting them a little more is incomprehensible at this point.
We have to talk about this.
