What it takes to stop gun violence.
- Kevin S.
- Saturday, 21 June 2014
Dear Mr. President,
Why don't you want to stop gun violence? Why do we only hear you recommending stricter gun laws? Why haven't you told people what the REAL problem is? Why do you not tell us about the tolerance we have developed for stupidity and inhumanity? Why don't you tell our people that these problems are the result of our inadequacies? Why not tell us why parents have to spend more time working than raising their kids to do well? Why don't you tell them how the time they can put into their kids doesn't compete with the time kids spend on the internet and tv? Why don't you tell us why our adults kick little girls out of K.F.Cs because their faces are disfigured? Why don't you stop telling us what we want to hear, and tell us what we need to hear? Why not stop just blaming gun laws? Why not blame ourselves?
