    Straight Forward in a Crooked World: untitled in wake of an atrocity

    In wake of the atrocity (which is the correct term instead of the misplaced tragedy) at Sandy Hook Elementary I have, like many of you, found myself amidst of old and failed debates. The idea, or rather ideology that there is a solitary solution to end violent crime is of course a false one.

    Earlier today I received an email from someone who went into grand detail telling me that I had blood on my hands as an NRA member and, gun rights activist for the actions of Adam Lanza. Below is my reply that I felt I would share.

    "I own chainsaws, I am not to blame for the deforestation of the rain forests.

    I own a car, I am not to blame for the drunk drivers of this world.

    I hunt wild game, I am not blame for those who slaughter wild dolphins in Taiji.

    I own a camera, I am not to blame for the pornography aimed at children.

    I have a butcher knife, I am not to blame for slasher that rides the train.

    My shed holds gas cans, I am not to blame for the arsonist.

    My garden requires fertilizer, I am not to blame for those who blow up buildings.

    My hands bear fists, I am not to blame for the man who beats his family.

    My body bears a penis, I am not to blame for the rapist.

    I run a business, I am not to blame for the con man who runs a scam.

    My heart bears love, I am not to blame for those who are loveless."

    Good words. Well said. To much logic for the politicians, but again good stuff.

    Sounds like you need to punch that person in the nose the next time you see them. ;)
