Those nine people died because their skin is dark.Crossman co2 air pistol All over the country, from the White House to the black holes, people are observing a moment of silence.

Who cares about these moments of silence? Certainly not the dead! IMG_5595Why aren’t the public observers of silence – congress, supreme court, governors, mayors, politicians, et al) screaming about gun control, white supremacy racism that is eating the soul of this country, domestic terrorism that is slowly imprisoning scared people in their own homes.

Can’t the people in charge of this country see that slowly we the citizens are forced to self-imposed confinement indoors? We may as well move to Gaza.praying w bible-ls_red

We are not safe in schools, theatres, temples, churches, mosques, colleges, shopping malls, parks, streets and in our own homes.

When are law makers going to face the fact that there are too many guns in the wrong hands? And used for the wrong purposes? How many more people must die before people become more important than gun sales?

churchA young man has no education, no job, no driver’s license, but he has a gun, ammunition and enough hate in his heart to kill nine worshippers.

Thanks to his gun, he also has no future.

Racism is so ingrained in the souls of white supremacists that guns in their hands are permission to kill.praying-hands-Pencil

How many more people must die before we scream gun control, racism, terrorism? After all, death is silence – they don’t need a moment of it!

Immune to Murder – Are We?

Am I going to be the next victim of a mass murderer? Am I becoming immune to murder?

According to the news, every day some where in America some one is committing mass murder using WMD. In homes with families, in shopping malls, in streets, in public spaces, in schools, in fact in any place where humans congregate, shooting the innocent is becoming the norm.

But there is no public outcry anymore! There is also not much TV coverage, and very little press. At most a few paragraphs are hidden in the back pages. The media, it seems, have joined forces with the NRA to silence coverage and publicity of gun violence.

The NRA is an organization born in hell. They have no shame, no responsibility, no accountability, and no guilt for the innocent lives they take, the pain and loss they cause unsuspecting people, the families they destroy, and certainly no respect for the voices of outrage and protest against their evil practices.

The media, however, owes the public a debt. It has a duty to tell the public of these daily / weekly crimes against humanity; disseminating this kind of information is vital to public safety. The media need to speak loudest against gun violence – not hide behind silence.

We as a nation are becoming immune to murder. We hear of six people shot to death in North Carolina, we shrug our shoulders and move on. The mall shooting and we wrinkle our nose and move on. Two teachers shot dead and we turn the other way and move on.

If we remain passive we help the NRA; we help the media; we accept mass killings; we immune ourselves to death by shooting.

Yes, we are becoming immune to murder. When we begin to take murders, killings, dronings, and homicides in stride without emotions, outrage, or shock, and condemn gun violence loudly, then we are lost as a society.

Perhaps we are already immune to mass murders – death by shooting with gun by Homo sapiens
