WARNING - this is my longest #IGtirade ever.
#donaldtrump has proposed raising the #firearms purchase age to #21. so, you're saying, i can join the #military at 18, serve a tour in some #shithole carrying/driving/flying a #weapon, then come home and lose that right? makes #zerosense to me. do i agree that 21 year olds have a fraction more sense than 18 year olds? yes, i do. should we then raise the military service are to 21, the driving age to 21, the #VOTING age to 21?
no. we should raise our children to become responsible #americans, not sniveling #snowflakes to be waited on hand & foot. i'm sick of seeing 30 year-old CHILDREN with a masters degree in "dead language haiku" sucking off the teat of mom & dad working at starbucks complaining they can't find a job. so they are depressed - they pop #abilify (there's a drug name for ya) like skittles - become suicidal & take a few innocents out with them.
in november/december at my high school (and i'm not THAT old) it was common to see shotguns hanging in the rear window of pickups & on the back seats of cars. there was hunting to be done. not ONE STUDENT shot anyone. there were fist fights in the parking lot. not ONE STUDENT reached for a gun.
that's because WE HAD SOME FUCKING SENSE!
why? because we were raised to understand that actions have consequences. if we screwed up, we paid for it. if we got in trouble with the law - the fallout from our fathers was MUCH worse than anything the sheriff offered.
bring back the family. bring back sanity.
