In "Gun Nation USA", everybody is a victim

By Patrick

In "Gun Nation USA", everybody is a victim.

The police.

The black.

The white.

The old.

The young.

The children.

The mothers.

The fathers.

The Christians.

The Muslims.

The Jews.

The Atheists.

The good,

The bad.

The citizens.

The foreigners.

The illegals.

The gun owners.

The ones who don't own guns.


What more is there to say?

It should not be like that.


Some documentaries for education and reflection:

"Gun Crazy USA":

Inside Story Americas - What fuels the love for guns in the US?

Crossfire : The politics of gun rights and gun control - the fifth estate

The following last clip is particularly good...

The state of gun violence in the US, explained in 18 charts:


In addition, this chart from the BBC-website speaks for itself:


Pray for the victims, and for America:

Zed Nelson, photo from "Gun Nation": Columbine High School shooting victim John Tomlin Jr.'s pick-up truck in the school parking lot. He parked his truck the morning of April 20, 1999, and never returned to pick it up. The following day people began to lay flowers and notes on it. In the days following the tragedy the family visited the truck, and sat in the cab and cried, and left their own flowers and messages, trying to make sense of their sudden and unexpected loss. It was still there ten days later, piled high with wilting flowers.
