Indiana mother cites ‘religious freedom’ law as defense for abusing her son / LGBTQ Nation:

“Indiana mother Kin Park Thaing may get away with severely beating her son with a coat hanger after she cited the state’s new ‘religious freedom’ law as justification for the abuse. The law says the government may not infringe on a person’s religious liberty without a compelling interest.”

DC Metro Rape Highlights Why Women Are Always Aware of Rape

DC Metro Rape Highlights Why Women Are Always Aware of Rape:

“Earlier this week, a man was arrested in the rape of a woman on a Washington, DC metro train. That’s Washington, DC, USA, not Washington, DC, ‘Somewhere-over-there-where-women-have-it-much-worse-so-shut-up.’ He is charged with brazenly assaulting her at knifepoint, on a moving train, at 10 a.m in the morning on a weekday last month. The already beleaguered DC Metro is under fire for not having informed riders of the assault.”

It’s Past Time For Sensible, Intelligent Gun Control

If you listen to the Right Wing, Conservative, Pry the Gun From My Cold Fingers, segment of the political scene, odds are you think everything is fine and dandy in the Land of the Free and Armed. Maybe you think gun control is anti-American or unconstitutional and if you think these things, such is your right.

That does not however make you ‘Right’. 

I have never had an issue with people owning weapons who have a legitimate and legal reason to do so. 

It is the other people who I take issue with. Those for whom these weapons are a means to a violent, illegal end. Those who only reason for possessing a firearm is to kill other humans. You know who these people are; they make the news with terrifying regularity. Killing sprees in churches, malls, movie theaters, and town halls. The gang bangers, the drive by shooters, the ones who kill for thrill of having the power of life and death in their hands.

I take issue with violent, mentally ill people having access to weapons of any type and yes, if you have ‘anger management issues’ I think you have a mental condition which should bar you from ever owning a gun.

If you are a gun owner then it is your responsibility and duty to your community to make them secure so criminals, children, and those I have already mentioned cannot gain access to them. If you aren’t responsible enough to do that, then you certainly are not responsible enough to own a gun in the first place.  

I’m going to give links to the stories from just this week of senseless gun violence which could have been avoided through the use of sensible, intelligent laws and the repeal of dangerous legal standards such as stand your ground and conceal/carry.
