We Are Not Shields

May 25th, 2022

Let’s give all the children guns.

The people who have guns, who love guns, who make money off guns, are absolutely unwilling to do anything about guns, so the only solution I can think of is arming each and every child who has to enter a school building.

If you’re thinking, “That’s crazy,” you’re right: this is fucking crazy. This is all crazy. We live in the craziest fucking country on the planet.

I want to reiterate what I wrote in a post a few weeks ago: if you support guns in any way, you are not “pro-life.” I put the term “pro-life” in quotes because it doesn’t really mean anything anymore; it’s a catch-all for people to put themselves on a pedestal over others.

Guns are made for one thing: to kill. Period. People who say they own one for “self-defense” are lying to you and, perhaps unwittingly, themselves.

Guns are not “defense.” Do you know what defense is?

A shield.

And until we can shield our most vulnerable people — our elderly, our children — we need to arm them.

All of them.

Especially the children.

And before you ask, “Where will we get all these guns?”: we already have them. There are more guns in America than people — over 400 million of them.

Every single argument that gun owners have ever made mean absolutely nothing now; it is the definition of insanity. They say the same things over and over and over again and we wake up to the same tragedies. Over. And over. And over again.

I only hope the people who think this country needs Jesus takes that same energy and applies it not only to his teachings, but his action. Faith without works is dead.

Like so many children.

If you think me saying that the children need to protect themselves is crazy, you’re right, and welcome to the world that we live in right now.

Adults are not protecting life; we are not shields.

We are letting life be destroyed.
