Each day I become more and more disgusted with our society. From gun nuts threatening “civil war” to their brethren in the animal killing community who get more vile by the day, something is very wrong in this country. A fellow Wisconsin wildlife advocate received this image in their email with the following comment:

Welcome to modern America. To a disturbingly high number of people in this country this is funny. Not to be outdone the rabid gun nuts are on a rampage making threats about “civil war” and pushing conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook massacre being fake. Yup it was all dreamt up by our socialist president so that he could take away your frickin guns. The most insane theory that I heard was that all of the murdered children’s caskets were closed and “no one” saw the bodies. Really? What? Do you want the murdering POS that killed the children to have taken grinning photographs over the bloody bodies of the children like gun nuts do with the animals they slaughter? Do you want open caskets showing children with half of their faces missing? What is wrong with you nuts? The NRA and their shills keep saying that mental health needs to be addressed in this country. You bet it does, and they can start right in their own ranks. Sane people do not act this way or spread crazy accusations. Sane people do not threaten “civil war” if they cannot buy 20 of their little killing toys without a background check. Sane people do not send photographs of gut shot animals and joke about them being killed while pregnant. Isn’t it funny how “pro-life” matters only when talking about human life with these people? Or at least human life while it is still in the womb, because they sure don’t give a damn about you once past that stage.
Is this what “freedom” is all about? If so, I would gladly take some of that evil socialism because there are some truly sick individuals that walk among us and lurk in the shadows taking advantage of that “freedom.” Don’t get me wrong sick people live in every corner of this world, but there sure seems to be a high concentration in this country. Did the founding fathers really have the gun nut view of the world in mind when they wrote the bill of rights? I highly doubt it. And if they did it would be foolish to think that they had all of the answers in the first place. No man is infallible and remember that these same people proudly owned slaves. Do you want to live in a society where every nut who walks a razor’s edge mentally to have access to high powered military style weapons? Do you really think the founding fathers envisioned this for their WELL REGULATED MILITIA?
For the record I have no problem with guns being owned for home protection. In fact I own one for that very purpose. The difference between me and the gun nuts is that I don’t base my entire identity on a killing apparatus. I am also a veteran with extensive training on when to use and when not to use a weapon. Have you ever noticed that most of those who obsess about guns and starting a “civil war” are the ones who never served a day of their life in military service? Ted Nugent? He crapped his pants for a week straight to avoid being drafted to serve in Vietnam. The shills on Fox News? Name one talking head there who served in the military? I sure can’t. So if they were to afraid to fight in the wars they advocate for, why would anyone think they would have the guts to start another civil war? That is the point. Just like the scum that sent the above photograph. They talk a big game and sure know how to abuse creatures who can’t fight back, but in the end they are nothing more than cowards. Take away their killing apparatus and they are even less. It is all about fear and intimidation with these people. They get off on tormenting those who actually do care and threaten “civil war” when we don’t back down from their bluster. I for one say we don’t back down, not one inch. They can hide behind the anonymity of the internet and vile pages like the “Wisconsin Wolf Hunting” page on Facebook but we know exactly what they are in real life.
Is this what we want to continue to allow America? Gun nuts and sadists bullying the rest of us into submission? It’s your decision.
