In what appears to be an all too familiar occurrence in my country, another shooting has occurred in America.
In Orlando, Florida, the city of residence of our very own Tom "R-33" Kehlenbeck, a gunman armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and pistol, opened fire on the PULSE NIGHTCLUB, killing over 50 people before being vanquished by local police.
The events of this weekend have caused me to be filled with so much rage that I almost cried. Bear in mind, I haven't felt that way in years.
As Tom pointed out, the gunman legally and easily purchased and licenced the assault rifle, a weapon no ordinary citizen has ANY business possessing.
This incident, which is one of the deadliest in the recent history of America, shows many of the problems my country is facing: The fact that people here can easily and quickly get their hands on dangerous weapons without much questioning AND how a lot of people feel the need to be superior to others, much to the degree that they say disparaging things and even bully and kill others over factors like race, colour, orientation, etc.
I feel that a LOT of changes need to be if America is to survive as both a people and nation.
