and go out in the street to shoot at each other. I am so fucking angry about the way our country has treated the firearm issue.  NOBODY in a free and peaceful nation needs an AR-15 or AK-47 rifle.  NOBODY.

While I think we’ve grossly misinterpreted the intent of our constitutional 2nd amendment, this is not a discussion of whether responsible citizens should have firearms – it’s a discussion of corporate media responsibility.
