No One Wants To Take Your F*cking Gun

I was going to say, "God, the stupidity is astounding!", but that isn't true.  No, the obvious lying and fear mongering is astounding.
.
The shooting in San Bernardino (scroll down) happened yesterday.  Since then, lying pieces of crap like this have been going on Fox to call out the President and Democrats with inane chatter.
.
"Why would the president want to disarm us when we're.."  He doesn't.
The key annoyance here is the not the racism, it is the comment "Why would the President want to disarm us when we're under assault by radical Islam?"  As we have explained a few times, that is a "straw-man" argument based on a lie. 
.
Neither the President nor Democrats in general want to "disarm" you.  They have called for 1) sensible background checks,  2) stopping gun sales to people on the terrorist watch list, and 3) the same ban on semi-automatic weapons that happened when Ronald Reagan was the target of assassination.
.
Nowhere is anyone "going to disarm you."
.
Also - We don't give a shit if you pray.
.
Fox News Distraction
The Media and others (like me) are NOT mocking anyone for offering their prayers to the victims in San Bernardino.  What we ARE doing is calling out those who do have the ability to actually help, but do nothing.  The legislators and Presidential Campaigners who have a solution to everything else, but ignore mass shootings (or, like Jeb Bush, say "stuff happens").
.
Senator Paul is offended by "attacks on prayer".  Fuck you Senator Rand.  I am offended  that you haven't done shit as a Senator to address this problem.  You're ready to send people to die in (and for) Syria and Iraq, but not willing to get off your ass and pass any sensible law to protest the mentally and physically disabled in our country.  And you offer prayers like you have no choice.  Guess what, you can offer prayers AND a solution.
