Tragedy stalks the news cycle these past few days. The ghouls of the Main Stream Media (MSM) are milking the shocking carnage which took place in Connecticut for every last drop of sensationalism. The professional mourners and victims come forth to show everyone just how sad they all are. Vigils are held, candles are lit, tears are shed.
At the end of the day the families are once again left alone in their grief. Left alone to face that howling emptiness that can never be filled. Left alone to face the agony of the coming years with thoughts of what might have been and now will never be.
Something is wrong with our society. We're seeing the so-called experts crawling out of their sewers now to tell us just how truly evil firearms are. We're seeing the same flaming idiots and their fellow travelers who caused the problems with our society in the first place spewing their ignorance in the MSM. The proponents of the nanny state, the paladins of Big Government who "know what's best for you" are at it again.
Let me say that first of all, this is most emphatically NOT a gun control issue. This is first and foremost a mental health issue and secondly it is, to me at any rate, another symptom of the abject failure of our society thanks to the socialists and Progressive Elements in this country.
Now that I've said my piece, head on over to Blackfive and read this. Froggy has "been there, done that".
