Music for a Sunday: A necessary repost

Yes, I’m reposting this. Because the US of Amnesia hasn’t gotten the message yet.

And for those who say “You can’t ban evil, killers gonna kill”: When’s the last time you saw a guy stab 60 people to death and injure 500-odd more with a knife? Even Tim Fucking McVeigh and his fertilizer bomb truck under the Murrah Building didn’t do what Stephen Fucking Paddock managed to do by sneaking guns into a hotel. Every country that brought in gun controls after a mass shooting has managed a remarkable drop in the murder rate in general and the mass-shooting rate in particular.

If you’re going to get your arguments off bumper stickers, you might want to start reading ones that don’t confirm your biases.
