American Gun Fetish: The Texas School Massacre

We are discussing gun control and the Uvalde school shooting.

Americans have a sick fascination with their guns, it’s pathological, almost sexual. May 24 2022, Robb Elementary School, Uvalde Texas – 19 children slaughtered, two teachers gunned down as they tried to shield the students with their bodies. On this black day, yet another avoidable school mass shooting shocks the world. Yet another AR-15 rifle is used to massacre babies. The nation is in shock, but the republican politicians are still refusing to ban assault rifles and pass gun control laws. The gunman bought his two AR-15s and 375 rounds of ammo legally, the day after his 18th birthday. In the United States one cannot buy a beer if they’re younger than 21, but buying an Armalite military weapon created for war is legal.

Just as the funerals of the victims of the Buffalo mass shooting are starting, America is faced with another slaughter of innocents. 19 little bodies, so destroyed they had to be matched to their parents by DNA tests, some were unrecognizable. 4 victims are still alive, in critical condition at a San Antonio hospital. The police took more than 1 hour to neutralize the gunman, it appears they arrested a parent, tackled another, and pepper sprayed a third, as these people were trying to get in the school to save the children while police were outside, while the gunman was still shooting inside the school. An 11 year old girl had to cover herself in blood to appear dead, and she stayed still for 1 hour until the police got there. This year we’ve had more mass shootings in the US than days. We have more guns in the US than we have people. The American academy of pediatrics just said that the leading cause of death of American children and adolescents is no longer car accidents, it is FIREARMS. In the last 26 YEARS, since they banned semi-automatic rifles after the Port Arthur massacre, Australia had 20 people dying in mass shootings. We have 19 children and 2 teachers in one day, on May 24. This comes right after the Buffalo racist shooting on May 14, where 10 people were gunned down in a supermarket. So we have 31 fatalities in 10 days. AMERICA, WE HAVE MORE PEOPLE GUNNED DOWN IN 10 DAYS THAN AUSTRALIA HAS IN 26 YEARS. An AR-15 was used in all these gun massacres:

Uvalde: AR-15

Buffalo: AR-15

Boulder: AR-15

Orlando: AR-15

Parkland: AR-15

Las Vegas: AR-15

Aurora, CO: AR-15

Sandy Hook: AR-15

Waffle House: AR-15

San Bernardino: AR-15

Midland/Odessa: AR-15

Poway synagogue: AR-15

Sutherland Springs: AR-15

Tree of Life Synagogue: AR-15

We explain why arming teachers is insanity, why metal detectors and transforming our schools in prisons won’t work, and why the only solution is a ban on assault guns, on all semi automatic guns and common sense gun laws, strict gun control, and universal background checks. Also other measures like red flag laws too, but no: this is not about evil and mental illness, all countries have that: what they don’t have is guns. And therefore, mass shootings.

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, senator Ted Cruz and the mayor of Uvalde Don McLaughlin yelled at Beto O’Rourke when he interrupted their shameful press conference in which they were blaming the “evil”, not the guns. Beto was escorted out by Uvalde police officers. Texas chose Cruz over Beto in the senate race in 2018. Now Texas has a chance to replace Abbott with Beto in the gubernatorial race.

Just 2 hours after the massacre, TX governor Gregg Abbott attended a fundraising event: he was counting money while the Uvalde parents were counting bodies.

The NRA convention in Houston just days after the tragedy in Uvalde was not cancelled, with Cruz and Trump still attending, while Abbott decided to make a video appearance only.
