The NRA has put too many guns in the hands of psycho-killing nut-jobs. by idropkid

Too many  kids  have been killed by too many nuts with guns. If the nuts had not had guns, then the  kids  would not be  dead . Nuts should not have guns, and those that have guns should be disarmed. Now! Today!

Gun nuts claim that the 2nd Amendment protects their right to own as many guns as they wish, and to use those guns anyway they wish. But those gun nuts are wrong. Here's what the 2nd amendment says:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Don't let the NRA fool you. The 2nd Amendment does not protect the rights of gun-toting sociopaths. Militias must be well-regulated in order to prevent the wrong people (e.g., mass-murdering psychos) from killing innocents. 

No more. Beginning today, Americans should demand a national policy of Zero Tolerance for Gun Violence. In order to prevent any  more  needless deaths, Americans should also call for a nationwide moratorium on gun and ammunition sales until every gun, gun owner, and in particular, every wacked-out sociopath can be "well regulated" by appropriate, Constitutionally-empowered authorities. 

No   more   dead   kids !
