No Christmas Celebration For Me


By Jueseppi B.

I have tried to be cheerful and get into the “Christmas Spirit“. I have decorated trees and strung lights for some elderly and disabled neighbors back in the states. I played all my favorite Christmas songs, over & over. I Tried telling myself this was a Christmas just like any other.

 

It’s not.

 

I have not stopped crying, at some point during each day, since December 14th, 2012. I have no control over the flow of unwanted tears.

 

These 27 families will share no joy, no happiness, no spirit of the holiday season……

I just can not find a happy place knowing that in Newtown, Connecticut, there is a deep pain that can never be eased or erased.

 

For some reason this massacre inside Sandy Hook Elementary School has done things to me that the other massacres have not.

 

Mother Jones says:

“Since 1982, there have been at least 62 mass murders (massacres) carried out with firearms across the country, with the killings unfolding in 30 states from Massachusetts to Hawaii.

 

Of the 142 guns possessed by the killers, more than three quarters were obtained legally. The arsenal included dozens of assault weapons and semiautomatic handguns.

 

Half of the cases involved school or workplace shootings (12 and 19, respectively); the other 31 cases took place in locations including shopping malls, restaurants, government buildings, and military bases. Forty four of the killers were white males. Only one of them was a woman.

 

The average age of the killers was 35, though the youngest among them was a mere 11 years old. A majority were mentally ill—and many displayed signs of it before setting out to kill. Mass murders represent only a sliver of America’s overall gun violence.”

 

A very special Hat Tip/Shout Out to Mother Jones and their article “A Guide to Mass Shootings in America”, which is where I found the above listed statistics. Please check out their full article at Mother Jones.

 

 

Needless to say, I can not stop thinking about America’s gun problems, and I can not stop feeling exactly what the friends, families and loved ones who lost human life in Newtown, Connecticut, are experiencing. I can’t get past that massacre. I can’t move on. I can’t stop cringing at the thought of the next one.

 

While stupid, egotistical, idiotic, morons at the NRA lay blame for Sandy Hook Elementary School everywhere but at the feet of the NRA’s corporate gun sponsors/manufacturers…..even more Americans have died since December 14th, 2012, at the end of a handgun or assault weapon.

 

Then there are your garden variety dumbass Americans who scream “2nd amendment rights” whenever a person falls dead from a gunshot wound. As long as that person that falls dead ain’t nobody they know or love.

 

In case you gun nuts have not read AND comprehended the 2nd amendment, please do so. That 2nd amendment does not give you, garden variety American citizen, the right to bear jack shit, let alone handguns & assault weapons. Go Google 2nd amendment, then read it…and remember…reading comprehension is fundamental.

 

Ok….I’m back to attempting to find this elusive “Christmas Spirit”.

 

I wish you & your family a wonderfully joyous Kwanzaa, Christmas & Hanukkah & a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year.

It’s Been A Week….Whats Different…..


By Jueseppi B.

Absolutely nothing. 

 

Thats the sad part about the aftermath of the lives taken from us at Sandy Hook Elementary School. There has been talk, discussion, deniability,  finger pointing, stupidity, words tossed around.

 

But no action.

 

Commissions and press conferences and promises mean nothing Washington. The 28 funerals are what matter. Twenty child coffins…eight adult coffins. And we still have not learned a damn thing.

 

 

We’ve placed the blame for this massacre on mental illness.

We’ve placed the blame for this massacre on the absence of God.

We’ve placed the blame for this massacre on bad parenting.

We’ve placed the blame for this massacre on teachers not being armed.

We’ve placed the blame for this massacre on a need for more guns.

 

We’ve placed the blame for this massacre on everything BUT the reason 28 people are dead in Newtown, Connecticut.

 

Availability Of Handguns and Assault Weapons.

Availability Of Body Armour.

Availability Of Drum Magazines & Assault Ammo Clips.

 

Thats why we have to observe 28 Memorial Services.

Thats why we have to observe 28 Funerals.

Thats why we have to observe 28 Burials.

Thats why we have to observe 27 Grieving Families.

 

We have to do all this because Americans fight to have the right to bear arms.

We have to do all this because Americans fight to have the right to kill one another.

We have to do all this because Americans fight to have the right to own weapons of war.

We have to do all this because Americans fight to have the right to use weapons of mass destruction.

 

 

What town will mourn next?

How many will die in the next massacre?

What weapons will be used next time?

How long before we have more mass burials?

Will your family member be next?

 

 

Rest In Peace All Children Of God. May your families find peace and may America stop the gun violence.

We will never forget your faces……

Justification For Justice Jesus Or The Gun God


By Jueseppi B.

Lets arm school teachers.

 

If schools had prayer in them, like they used to have, this would not have happened in that school in Newtown, Connecticut.

 

Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

 

Cars kill more people than guns, are you gonna ban cars?

 

The 2nd amendment gives me the right to own a gun.

 

If everybody had guns, these massacres wouldn’t happen.

 

Are we gonna ban knives and bow & arrows too?

 

Guns are not the problem, criminals and drugs are the problem.

 

Obama is gonna take away our guns.

 

My gun is for protection.

 

You can have my guns when you pry it from my cold dead hand.

 

Why should we Americans give up our guns?….Here’s why……..

These 28 Americans, who had their lives ended on December 14th, Twenty Twelve, because of the ease of availability of handguns & assault weapons, this is why you must give up your guns.

 

Not so much because of whet you yourself might do with your guns, but because of what some OTHER person could do with YOUR guns.

 

You see, Adam Lanza didn’t own one single gun.

 

His mother was a licensed registered gun owner, who was a practiced shooter and survivalists.

 

Nancy Lanza was among the massacred victims on Friday December 14th, Twenty Twelve.

 

Executed by her own weapons. By her own son.

 

Her guns that she owned for “protection” didn’t save her life, they ended her life, as well as the lives of these angels…….

Americans use Jesus and God as a justification for their right to bear arms. Right wing religious leaders are big gun rights advocates.

 

Does it strike anyone besides me that the very people we look to for religious leadership are members and contributors to the NRA….merchants of death? Peace & Love are not being preached from these pulpits.
