Over 10,000 people killed a year by guns.
Over 3,200 killed in the twin tower attacks.
Terrorism kills 3,200 and everyone goes insane (quite rightfully, it was devastating but their own gun laws are killing three times that EVERY YEAR and nothing has changes.
It is just so backwards, I can’t wrap my head around it.
In America there are 1.5 guns for every single human being living there. What’s happening is VILE (please don’t get me wrong on this, I am not in any way for-guns), but by imposing new gun laws, it would only drive it underground IMO and not get rid of the problem. Instead, it would turn it into an even more dangerous beast by making guns etc taboo yet, considering the volume of them, a very readily available taboo. Gangs thrive on their own criminality, and so by making guns illegal - instead of the shop owner on the corner selling you one to ‘protect your family’, you’d have your friendly neighbourhood crack-dealer selling you a Glock, therefore you’d be increasing their revenue and making gang culture more visible and harder to exterminate.
It’s such a hard issue! I am very, very much anti-gun etc but by simply tightening gun control without removing the guns themselves, you would be treading a very thin line between dangerous and downright terrifying.
i wish i lived in europe you can literally ride a bike for about 20 minutes and end up in a different country with a completely different culture
if i ride a bike here for 20 minutes i’d just end up at another walmart
another section of walmart
If I ride a bike for 20 minutes in Australia, and I end up in the same suburb I was already in.
If I ride a bike for 20 minutes in England I would end up in a muddy field in the same county, in the same country. I do so loathe peoples romanticised notions of Europe and the UK.
Astronomical Clock. Old Times Square, Prague
Liveblogging from my phone whilst nurses eye me with disgust, just to say;
Worlds shittest clock. I waited 30 minutes for something to happen, one figure popped out the centre, twirled and went back in. Also, you can see bugger all of the beautiful front design from 40ft below surrounded by (other) obnoxious tourists.
Who designs a clock you can’t see (and therefore can’t use), and is permanently obscured by squawking 'Mooooms!' and their disgruntled, bored, irritating little offspring with Nikons round their necks and chips in their hands.
This is all. Now I must return to my morphine and bedbath.
Whilst delivering coffees at work today, this little fella ran up to me and wouldn’t go, even coming inside the shop. I swear my heart has melted.
Why is my self worth dictated by wether I fit in my jeans?
