While the argument may seem separate to some, they are one and the same… Most of the nonsensical laws that America’s public is forced to endure have a foundation based in greed, money and power.
Friday’s tragedy is still fresh in our minds — sadness, grief and bewilderment have gripped our nation for the last three days. Many ponder the poignant question… how is it that a mentally disturbed young man can get his hands on these types of weapons? And what would push him over the edge, leading to the murder of 20 innocent kids? As always seems to be the case, no one could’ve imagined the dark mindset necessary for carrying out this slaughter of innocents, or that someone of that nature (mentally unstable) could gain access to the guns necessary to carry out the carnage that unfolded Friday at a Connecticut elementary school.[nggallery id=764]
We must have a short memory. How many of you remember that following the cold-blooded butchery of the Batman movie shooting (Aurora CO.), CO Gov. John Hickenlooper claimed that it was far too soon to begin the important discussion of gun control? His contemptible silence on gun control and the role of modern weapons in today’s society, was instead replaced with his beefed up campaign against amendment 64 (the legalization of recreational of marijuana consumption) in Colorado. The strange thing is, according to the CDC in 2006, guns killed a total of 30,896 people. Of which, 642 turned out to be accidental. 16,883 were due to suicide, a staggering 12,791 were murders, and the cops were cleared in 360 killings by guns. Yet according to Gov. Hickenlooper, Weed, which has never killed anyone, was more of a hot topic than guns.
For a little insight into the psychological mindset of Gov. Hickenlooper, who famously told Coloradans that marijuana legalization was unsafe for kids, he has made a small fortune off the family owned Brewing Company, Wynkoop — knowing that his type of alcohol products are responsible for the killing of thousands of people yearly. So according to the governor, marijuana smoking was a bigger issue than gun control, or alcohol consumption and all the death that comes with it.[nggallery id=767]
As the president spoke out on Sunday, he noted that thus far during his presidency, we as a nation have been faced with this situation four different times. Instead of angry politicians, spurred on by their constituents – to take on the NRA and do what is right by our citizens and our kids. The federal government and the overgrown children that run it have instead chased down innocent, state legal medical marijuana collectives, consumers and growers.
WHY? …well, just follow the money. How many politicians line their pockets with “donations” from the NRA, keeping guns legal? Or from the corporate industrial prison complex, making sure to keep those passive pot smokers filling their prison walls. While the argument may seem separate to some, they are one and the same… Most of the nonsensical laws that America’s public is forced to endure have a foundation based in greed, money and power.
