WHY ARE WE HERE? WHEN ARE WE GOING TO DO SOMETHING?!

Small bodies drop. Ghouls pray and babble. Most of us rage, weep, howl for action. In Uvalde, the families of 19 children - who all had a heartbeat so where are the alleged protectors of young lives? - had to get DNA tests to help identify now AR-15-ravaged corpses. Meanwhile, evil freaks and their bought pols who love guns more than children blame meds, morals, not enough God, anything but the over 400 million guns adrift in a nation held hostage, steeped in blood. This is the country they have chosen. May their obscene reign end soon. And may their fucking souls rot in hell.
