Yet Another Tragedy

Another maniac enjoying his 2nd Amendment freedom by shooting people. Awesome. I love the "freedom" that guns give us! Nothing says "freedom" like looking over your shoulder during a visit to NYC and wondering if you're going to get shot. Nothing says "freedom" like going to school and wondering where you can escape if a lunatic starts shooting up the room with a military-grade assault rifle. Nothing says "freedom" like opting to stay at home to watch a movie rather than enjoy a night at the theater because some nut with hurt feelings but lots of guns might take it out on a bunch of innocent friends and families.

We will never be FREE of this gun violence until all guns are banned, confiscated, and the 2nd Amendment overturned. Enough is enough already. First Colorado, then yesterday 19 in Chicago. Now in New York!
What has gone wrong?

Yes, I feel the anger. Because innocent people died from all this crap! What is going on? New York is a Gun-Free-Zone! And yes I am aware that criminals doesn't obey the law. What this is getting out of hand. I am not a citizen of the free country but I lived there. I love everything about this beautiful place but.. I am really out of words to say anything at the moment. My prayers and condolences to the families that suffered from this tragedy. I feel your pain.
