Out of curiosity, I just Googled AR-15 and founded a website from which you can purchase various kits to build your own rifle for a little less than $500! If that’s too pricey for your wallet, I’m sure you can probably score a better deal at one of those gun shows or somewhere on the black market (i.e. parking lot of a gun show). I think it goes without saying that far bigger shootings will happen in the months and years ahead before any policy change takes place. Having said that, I was almost certain that 20 first graders getting gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut would convert the ultra-conservatives, but sadly, it appears it will take far more. Anyone want to take a guess as to what it will take?
While we wait for change, thankfully prominent voices in popular culture aren’t afraid to tell it like it is, so here are responses to the Vegas shooting by Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel, who seems to be giving more and more tearful monologues.
