The real danger with convincing white South Africans that they are “dying like flies” is the formation of armed rebels to fight the government.
It is easy to prejudge a case as violent and tragic as that of Reeva Steenkamp, the woman gunned down by Oscar Pistorius. The facts are not in his favor and perhaps prejudice is valid.
The culture of fear created by people like NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre is dangerous for us all. The case of Oscar Pistorius, South African hero, who killed his girlfriend is a case in point.
Conservatives encourage gun massacres by refusing to tackle gun control. They are to blame. The deaths of twenty young children and six adults are on their heads.
President Obamas proposals for gun reforms are sensible, but they do not go nearly far enough. We need to get rid of the guns.
The speech by Lapierre, NRA CEO, was filled not with sorrow and remorse, but arrogance and a lack of empathy for the victims. This shows the depraved attitude of this organisation.
The NRA is responsible for creating a culture of fear in our society in their rush for a nation armed to the teeth.
The NRA wants ever more firearms in the wake of the Newtown CT shootings. This response to the disaster is not rational, and is its own act of depravity.
There is no excuse for the Second Amendment, no reason that civilians should possess weapons, and even less military style assault rifles.
Until we realise that gun violence is societies responsibility, that we can take action to stop the madness, mass shootings will continue, innocent children will die.
