Here we are again. Heartbroken.

Guns don't kill, people do. Know what I think? I think that statement makes me physically ill. People kill people with guns. People will kill people with other weapons given the opportunity. Just easier with an assault rifle. More importantly, why are we excusing it?

Why are we making weapons to sell to civilians on the open market? Why are we making weapons at all? Why the hell do we live in a society that fights evil with evil? Why do we make movies that glorify mass violence?

When life imitates art, we blame individuals. We don't stop and ask ourselves why our art is so violent or disturbing. Nope. We fall back on freedom of expression. Violence sells.Violence is good for the economy.

I haven't listened to the 911 calls. I can say with certainty it would be far too disturbing for me. You can if you wish here, but please this is not for children or anyone with a speck of humanity in them: Shooting in Aurora 911 tapes

Ask a gun seller. He'll tell you he's just making a living. That most gun-owners are responsible. They only kill when necessary. It's a sport. It's a hobby. Like racing. Or Skiing. People sometimes are injured or die. Spectators too.

Personally, I don't care what the statistics are. I don't care what lame excuses anyone provides for owning assault rifles. We should be able to go to the movies without fear. And we should make movies that entertain joyfully. Not brutally.

I'm just sick. It's been almost a year since another madman went on a rampage in Norway. And 6 months before that... a rampage right here in Tucson at the grocery store.

ENOUGH. PUT THE F****NG GUNS DOWN. IF YOU MAKE YOUR LIVING OFF THEM... LEARN TO MOP FLOORS... SHINE SHOES... OR WASH DISHES. PUTTING FOOD ON THE TABLE AT THE EXPENSE OF INNOCENT LIVES IS INEXCUSABLE AND INDEFENSIBLE.

Just sayin.
