What is it? It’s this:
The truth [about this tragedy] is made worse by the reality that no one—really no one—anywhere on the political spectrum has the courage to speak out about the madness of unleashed guns and what they do to American life. That includes the President, whose consoling message managed to avoid the issue of why these killings take place. Of course, we don’t know, and perhaps never will, what exactly “made him” do what he did; but we know how he did it. Those who fight for the right of every madman and every criminal to have as many people-killing weapons as they want share moral responsibility for what happened last night—as they will when it happens again. And it will happen again.
As I’ve said for years. And still our cowardly politicians are too spineless to stand up for what’s right and not what will fill their campaign coffers. The ugly, ugly truth about America is that our leaders don’t deserve the title because when we need their leadership most, they lie fallow like piles of manure on a field of flies.
