I’m not surprised that the GOP idiots have used the Paris terrorist attacks to further their NRA paymasters gun totting agenda, but I will condemn them for their actions. These idiotic politicians are a waste of a life in my view, can someone please summon the Inquisitor? Using a tragedy to further a political agenda is as bad as the evil terrorists who perpetrated the crime. Simply put, a firearm in the hands of untrained persons is just as dangerous as terrorism itself, how many more dead innocents would there have been?
Many of the GOP presidential candidates used gun control in France as the reason these attacks happened, with Trumnp saying “You can say what you want, but if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would’ve been a much, much different situation.” It’s the typical GOP reaction, more guns, more bombs, more wars, more killing… You have to remember that IS were born out of the US led invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan orchestrated by George W Bush and Dick Cheney.
Of course, these terrorist attacks on Paris are somehow the fault of President Obama because he has not gone to full scale war with the Islamic State in Syria. Obviously I will be labeled as a bleeding heart liberal, but I agree with the president. Having a low key presence in Syria is the way to go; instead of the typical American reaction of bomb, bomb, bomb, kill, kill, kill under multiple Republican presidents in history.
Moving past the idiotic politicians literally cashing in on this tragedy, the same PolitiDICKs are now using the Paris attacks to deny Islamic refugees from Syria entry into the US while Christian refugees from Syria could be given asylum. This is definitely not what being a Christian should be, many Christians like to claim they are being persecuted for their beliefs and yet they are the ones persecuting other religions.
Every religious group has their extremists, yes, even Christianity, that does not make the entire faith responsible for the actions of the 1% who choose to murder their fellow human beings. In my view, terrorism has no religion, whether it’s IS attacking Paris or the lone gunman who killed 3 at a Planned Parenthood clinic. Labeling an entire faith as terrorists is absolutely absurd, should I label the entire Christian faith as hate mongering, homophobic, Koran burning DICKS like Westboro Baptist Church?
On a final note, I challenge President Obama to actually follow through and tighten gun control laws instead of giving lip service each time a mass shooting happens in the United States. Talk is cheap, put your money where your mouth is Mr. President, there has been over 300 mass shootings in 2015 alone.
Update [Dec, 3 2015, 8:42]: Literally four days after I wrote this article; there has been yet another mass shooting, this time ins San Bernardino, CA. fourteen people killed and seventeen more wounded perpetrated by husband and wife Farook and Tashfeen Malik. The GOP presidential candidates are giving lip service in their tweets while still pushing their pro-gun agendas, Obama calls for gun reform, which will never happen, stop talking and do something about it, none of these politiDICKs have any credibility in my eyes. What will it take to make gun reform actually happen in the United States of America?
