Some americans confuse me.

This is just a quick thought about stupidity.

Why is it that everyone should have the right to bare arms, and not the right marry the person that they love? Why is it considered okay to have the capacity to kill someone, and yet considered wrong to love someone the same gender as you?

Gun laws are fucked. Marriage laws equally so. America confuses me.

(Inspired by a fucking idiot on the radio today, who claimed that “the only way to can stop a bad person with a gun, is with a good person with a gun.” What a fucking idiot. Even ignoring the presumption that the world is so figuratively black and white that we can categorise people as fundamentally good and bad, that is such a fucking stupid thing to say. First of all, how can a good person with a gun stop a bad person with a gun, without becoming a bad person themselves and harming another human? And second of all, the only way you can really stop a person with a gun, is to remove an essential part of the equation: the gun.
What a fucking idiot.)

(Also inspired by the fact that my pro-marriage equality poster fell off the wall, and I got to thinking about the subject while sticking it back up. You’re welcome.)
