Actually, I believe America’s gun obsession is rooted in the Constitution.
There’s historical reasoning behind America’s tight grip on the right to bear arms, but it’s not rooted in slavery. Do you know what that history is?
I don’t like this kind of headline. It’s misleading and stinks of fearmongering, using the far-right as a scapegoat. Our “obsession” with guns isn’t about race, it’s about the right to defend oneself. This goes for men and women, white people, black people, gay people, straight people, nonbinary people, and all other people.
You know, Americans.
P.S. If you’re normal to my blog you’ll see that I lean left (WAY left on certain topics =p). But I also see many good qualities of the right, as well as bad qualities of the left. “Same shit, different pot” as they say..but I’m also not about to compare the two and try to debate which side is “least evil” or whatever, as if you can even compare the two. There needs to be more parties to choose from, more candidates and more integrity in our political system, because I think everybody is sick of having to choose sides and by default deal with a bunch of horrendous and unrelated associations. I hate that there is a dialogue right now in America that is trying to take away citizens’ firearms. “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” is basically my position on this. Cure the reasons why people want to kill in the first place, and you won’t have to worry about outlawing every tool they use to kill with.
