I'm honestly upset that he made a pledge to IsIs, because now that's the perfect fucking distraction from gun issues.
I don't understand gun owners. I don't understand it. Who needs a weapon to kill? Who needs that, and is unwilling to part with it when people are DYING. The worst mass shooting in US history, over 160 shooting this year, and not a thing will be done. I am truly, TRULY, disgusted by my country. In times like this I hold absolutely no allegiance to it. I can't imagine the pain of the hostages, those from before they died and those who survived, and all their families. This could have been avoided---since Columbine (in terms of very high profile shootings), if laws were properly changed, how many deaths could we have avoided? How many innocent people would still be alive? Yet people value guns above other human lives (and in the south and Midwest, I bet these people identify as Christian, yet they value metal and lead over others' souls).
