Pro Gun Congresswoman shot in an act of homicidal irony
Democratic politician Gabrielle Giffords was shot through the head in Arizona last weekend and the blame game was immediate.
Some held up Sarah Palin's Facebook site which used gun targeting language and had a target site image over Giffords home state, while others claimed the Daily Kos proclaiming 'Giffords is dead to me' after she failed a professional left legislative test was just as inflammatory.
The gunman himself claimed the misuse of the english language was his reason, and by doing so took grammar nazi to a whole new level.
Everything was to blame except for the ludicrous handgun culture in America, where the gunman bought his ammunition from Wal Mart and where guns can be purchased with more ease than buying a lotto ticket.
In the United States of Trigger Happiness, gun deaths claimed over 50 000 lives in 2000 and accounts for over half of all suicides. Arizona, the State Giffords represented was debating this year to allow handguns onto college grounds.
American's and their bizarre handgun fetish is a cultural hangover from the Souths fear of slave rebellion and is defended by an obvious misreading of the Second Amendment which refers to the bearing of arms by a state militia and not semi-automatics for Grandma.
Whanau, if the answer is more guns, you've asked the wrong question.
