If you treat America’s obsession with guns, gun violence and the NRA like a religion, guns and their absolutely insane effect on society make much more sense. At least as much sense as such a thing could make.
“From the gun flows freedom, the freedom to be ignorant. The freedom to watch the innocent die, the freedom to ignore any protest to the loss of life, no matter the cost in blood, in treasure, in the lives of our children. Amen.”
