Too Broke to Fix

We’ve heard about the shooting at a Waffle House. What you may not know is that the shooter’s father returned his guns. The shooter had been arrested for trespassing on White House grounds and never should have had a gun in the first place, but he did. Because they gave those confiscated guns to his father and his father gave them back.

This wasn’t a failure of the system. Because the entire system is broken.

Not only should the shooter be held accountable but so should his father. For reasons that are beyond obvious. Both need to be jailed. And someone needs to close this loophole to make sure that this will never happen again.

As to whether or not anything will be done about either issue, we’ll have to wait and see. But I don’t have a lot of confidence that anything truly meaningful will be done.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
