The Boulder gunman, 21, who has history of ‘paranoia’ and mental illness HAD NO PROBLEM BUYING A MILITARY STYLE MASS MURDER WEAPON just days before using it.
This was because a Republican evangelical church-going judge BLOCKED Boulder from enforcing a 2018 ban on assault weapons— less than two weeks before gunman bought his gun and killed 10 with an ‘AR-15 rifle’ at grocery store.
The deaths won’t spur action to make the guns harder to get, or to make the guns less efficient, or to ban military weapons’ from our streets because pro-death White evangelical Republicans are 2 things: A Trump cult rejecting an election result they don’t like and a gun cult embracing mass death as evidence of their individualistic rights.
Here’s what guns-n’-God White evangelicals believe:
The self is everything! It’s freedom and liberty whims and desires and-uh… church. Community doesn’t extend beyond my front door. Everything else is someone else’s problem. Guns define us as Americans-not democracy, justice or life.
544,000 coronavirus deaths didn’t motivate mask-less Trump evangelicals to protect their neighbors. They haven’t cared about gun deaths either of schoolchildren or even people in the midst of prayer. Evangelical Republicans stubbornly embrace others’ deaths as their idea of personal freedom.
“Why” another mass shooting? Ask the GOP/NRA/Gun Lobby/Voter Suppressing/Court-Stacking/Pro-Shooter-Mass-Murdering-Terrorist-Coddling-Money-Corrupted Republican members of Congress and the one voting group that keeps them in power: White Evangelicals. America doesn’t have a gun problem, we have an evangelical problem.
