31. "... little kids, sacrificed in worship of guns."
Tue May 31, 2022, 02:05 PM
May 2022

We should use phrases like this - as OUR weapons.

Speak of it exactly like this.

Describe it exactly like this.

And repeat, repeat, repeat. And repeat some MORE.

Because it IS the goddamn worship of guns!

They hold guns as more important than children’s lives. NINETEEN children’s lives. And that’s just the latest death toll from the latest school shooting.
