Disarming the Victims <— William S. Burroughs


Where do successful mass shootings occur? Public schools where guns are banned, or gun clubs with their "gun culture"?

“Most of the trouble in this world has been caused by folks who can’t mind their own business, because they have no business of their own to mind, any more than a smallpox virus has.”

 

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.

I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.

William S Burroughs, The War Universe (1992)

Exploiting Tragedy <- Rahm Emanuel


The Arizona shooting is just the latest in an endless series of efforts by corrupt political thugs to exploit crisis and tragedy

You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.

— Rahm EmanuelInterview to the Wall Street Journal, (2008)
