Yesterday in Canada, a gunman shot and killed a corporal at the National War Memorial in Ottawa then walked into some parliament building where he fired off more shots before getting shot and killed himself. When I first saw “active shooter” in my feed, I pretty much assumed it was in America, then I was pleasantly surprised when I found out it was in Canada because 100 people probably just got shot in America while I was typing this sentence. Long story short, Chrissy Teigen tweeted this then people went apeshit.
People are calling this “controversial” and in “bad taste”, but if you want to call the truth those things, then you’re probably planning to take your 9-year old to an Uzi range this week. I won’t even get into the irony of a person receiving death threats over a tweet that fucking nails the gun problem we have in America, but again, this is America. Despite having every known advantage in the known world, and some of the greatest minds and technological advances in the history of mankind, we all live in a place where the majority of the people think that a tool as crude as a gun still has a place in society. For most part Americans are paranoid, are unable to see that the powers who control our government and media have us fighting over who paid more for the water hose as we watch our neighborhood burn to the ground then shock us with the docility stick with the McDonald’s Dollar Menu and the season premiere of The Walking Dead. At what point do things you see happen every single day stop becoming “tragedies”? At what point do I start posting more boobs on the site? This are both great questions to ponder.
