Guns Are Fun

Another kid shot himself and died. This one was three. The same age as the kid crowned the youngest lifetime member by the NRA at their convention this weekend. The convention where its new, Confederate-themed, supremely wacko president proclaimed attendees "fighters for freedom," where a "Youth Day" beckoned kids to "share the excitement" of its nine acres of slick blood-and-guts-stuff, where a Home Defense Concepts speaker suggested that listeners, wussy "emotional pushback" notwithstanding, keep their guns in their kids' closets 'cause that would make everyone safest and what could possibly go wrong and WTF is wrong with these people?

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
