The murder of singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando this past weekend was horrifying enough, but the subsequent murder of fifty people in a gay bar in that same city - both the worst mass shooting in American history and, if it is indeed an Islamic State attack, one of the worst acts of terrorism in recent years - was exponentially more so. How many more mass shootings - terrorist-based or not - are we going to have to endure before we finally do something about guns in These States? I, for one, have absolutely no confidence in the ability of either presumptive presidential nominee of the two so-called major parties to do anything about it.
Hillary, you are wrong when you say that America never stopped being great. Shootings like this don't happen in great nation - they only happen in a nation in decline. And Donald, we do need to make America great again, but you're not the one to do it. Not only are you a bigot and a vulgarian, but your asinine positions on guns and terrorism will only make us less safe, not more, and you're not going to make Americans any safer by going after families or terrorists than if you give good guys guns to fight bad guys with guns.
