Subject: Honestly, there's no 'gun culture' here...

I've known four people in my entire life that have ever owned a gun. EVER! And one of them was training to be a police officer, and another one was training for a spot in the FBI.

Now I lived in Chicago, so there's no hunting or anything going on. But, come on. The violence in Chicago is INSANE! And yet, there's no gun culture in Chicago. People have guns, but not because of some Constitutional right to own one. If anything, they're illegal and are used for gang violence.

My whole experience with gun culture has come from nutty religious fanatics, small militias in Idaho and Washington State, and Texas. You'll find more proud gun nuts in an ass backwards cult in Waco Texas than you will in Brooklyn or Los Angeles.

PLEASE...to all the folks overseas...don't think of America as a bunch of tobacco chewing idiots who are all in favor of gun violence. We're not. The lack of responsibility in these matters has been bought and PAID for by the people who profit off of murder. War is paid for by people who sell the weapons. Pollution is paid for by the corporations who spill it into the oceans and shoot it into the air. It's time we fixed this without going to the people who profit from our misery. That's the only way for it to get better.

Because they're not listening. They don't have the capacity to care.

Please don't let them represent us in the world's eye. We're ready to stand up and speak for ourselves.

Who else is going to do it?
