I knew it was only a matter of time before some idiot tied this to the VA Tech shootings. “Wasn’t the guy that shot up VA Tech Korean? We should just stop letting them in the country.”
Last time I checked, the majority of these types of incidents have been carried out by White males, so unless you want to start regulating how many White males are in this country I suggest you just stop the fuck right there. This is about sick, mentally ill individuals and ridiculously easy access to firearms. The end.
was reading up on the One Goh case and because I am a curious little fucker scrolled down to the user comments..
don’t. ever. do. it.
some idiot posted:
If he did this in Korea, he’d be hanged by a mob!
of course, other users hopped on and said what the fuck are you talking about, and the user continues:
2-million man Army, and I think they have guns lots of guns, plus a thriving mob culture! You can always get a gun if you really want one!
let me stop you right there, fucking idiot. There are NO GUNS IN KOREA. Police are the only ones with guns and hardly use them most of the time. Gun control and regulation is super strict and therefore no, there are not “lots of guns”, and someone could not “get a gun if you really want one” over there. Trust. And I am fairly certain that 2 million man army you’re thinking about is NORTH KOREA which is completely separate from SOUTH KOREA and no Korean you meet in this country is from North Korea, or if they are they will never admit it to you in fear of persecution since they would have had to put their lives on the line to escape from the country. I can’t even begin to fathom where you got the idea of “mob culture” in Korea either.
Fucking idiots out in this world.
Apologizing in advance if some of this doesn’t make sense.
For those who don’t know, there was a horrific shooting at a medical college in Oakland yesterday. 7 people were killed, and 3 were injured. Sad to say, this is not the first time something like this has happened.
It reminded me how upset I am about gun laws (or lack of) in this country. There is a powerful image circulating around tumblr, etc, of a young man holding up a sign during a rally that reads: “It’s easier to buy a gun than my education in this country.” and it’s absolutely true.
Too many times have I read about folks who LEGALLY obtained a firearm despite having a spotty background in mental health facilities, etc. I mean really, all you have to do is take one test to get your firearm license and then voila: you are now in possession of a killing tool.
And it’s not just dangerous in the hands of folks with mental illness or chemical imbalances. It’s just as dangerous in the hands of folks like George Zimmerman, children, idiots who don’t understand that they’re holding a freaking gun and end up shooting a bullet through the window into the house across the street, cops, the list goes on.
so yesterday I was at the gym burning off some steam, and Piers Morgan was doing a short Q&A with Rick Santorum. Sidenote: let me say right now I honestly don’t think I really hate anyone in this world, but I fucking hate Rick Santorum. At least with Bush, he sucked mostly because he was just an idiot. But Santorum is just this new level of hate and bigotry and I am fairly convinced he is Satan.
back to the point..
Piers Morgan brought up the Trayvon Martin case and the incident in Oakland yesterday, and asked if these recent events would change Santorum’s mind on gun policies. Of course, Santorum said no, and went on about how we MUST defend the constitutional right to bear arms, and “this isn’t a gun issue, it’s a people issue. This was a clearly sick individual, so this is not about guns but about sick people” or some bullshit. Here’s a newsflash: it’s VERY MUCH A GUN CONTROL ISSUE. Yes, there are sick individuals out there. But the reason incidents like these happen is because they have such easy access to firearms! Take out the easy access to firearms and I guarantee we would see a nosedive in these types of incidents. And also, can republicans just fucking stop with their passion to defend “the right to bear arms”. Can you all please just stop for a second and ask yourself WHY it is so important? Honestly, if we implemented some better gun control policy what HARM could come out of that? Someone fucking tell me.
Then Santorum went on about how “Americans are entitled to the right to shoot firearms for recreational purposes and to possess firearms so they can defend themselves in instances like these..”
let’s just stop the fuck right there. You mean you think it would have been somehow beneficial if one of the students or staff members on campus had their own gun so there could be a goddamn shoot out in public?! I didn’t realize we were living in the wild west, cowboy.
We are supposed to progress; we are supposed to learn from our mistakes and take strides to become better people and a better society. The right to bear arms has clearly proven to be harmful and deadly to our citizens, so I think it’s safe to say it’s time for some reform.
My solution/suggestion: Keep shooting ranges open. That way, people can still enjoy shooting guns for recreational purposes. If you want to use firearms for hunting purposes, there needs to be some strict ass regulation and again, you can go to a hunting site and rent a gun. But there is absolutely no NEED for someone to have a gun in their own possession.
Sidenote: this incident rings a little too close to home. Although I didn’t know any of the victims personally, the school and it’s students are closely tied to the Korean American/API community here in Oakland. My thoughts and condolences reach out to the victims, their families and loved ones, and we will see if we can come together as a community to help each other recover and get back on our feet again.
Figured I might as well try this.
I’m currently looking for Korean speaking volunteers to participate in our Senior Companionship Project. The project consists of one hour sessions, every Friday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM at a local home in Oakland. Volunteers will do several activities with senior residents, such as game days, arts & crafts, family story days, etc. Volunteers MUST be able to commit to the time, and following days:
