America, Children, and College: (((Dan Hodges))) O @DPJHodges In retrospect Sandy Hook marked the end of the US gun control debate. Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over. 6/19/15, 1:07 PM anonymouscomrade: runawaymarbles: conf3ttif4lling: the fact that this was written two years ago and it’s still relevant… what does that tell you? I’ve been saying this for years but guys Sandy Hook.  Sandy Hook was the Nightmare Scenario. It was the “that’s not realistic.” If I’d been arguing with someone who was anti gun control and I said “someone could take a gun and go into a school and kill thirty kindergartners in just a couple of minutes, how would you feel then,” they would have said I was exaggerating, that’s manipulative and unrealistic.  but that’s what happened.  and the thing is if thirty dead, white, upper middle-class kindergartners in Connecticut aren’t going to motivate change on gun control then they’re never going to change for queer people in Florida, and they’re not going to change for music fans in sin city, and they’re not going to change for college students in Washington and Oregon, and they’re not going to change and they’re not going to change.  A white man can buy 19 automatic weapons and no one is going to raise an eyebrow. And then afterwards they’ll send thoughts and prayers.  you wanna know what the really disgusting part is? it wasn’t just that 30 kids were killed at Sandy Hook and they didn’t care enough to finally do something it’s that 30 kids were killed at Sandy Hook, and instead of caring enough to finally do something, some actively dug their heads further in the sand and dismissed the entire thing as a fucking hoax so yeah it’s not just that they’re doing nothing but sending meaningless “thoughts and prayers”, there are people out there doing the equivalent of sticking their fingers in their ears and screaming NA NA NA NA NA I CAN’T HEAR YOU
