This really breaks my heart. 16 Mass shooting addresses? Trevor Noah, (whom we were fortunate enough to see live just this Saturday) brings up some interesting points.
“I wonder if President Obama ever thought to himself that mass shooting speeches would be such a large part of his job. At this point, he’s hosted 12 State Dinners, but has had to make 16 mass shooting addresses.”
No connection between gun laws and terrorism?
Toddlers have shot 23 people so far this year.
Should America protect its country and citizens, or should the President prepare speech no.17?
Trevor Noah gives this analogy!
“When I was young I didn’t tie my shoelaces… I would run around I would trip on my shoelaces I would fall down and cry. ‘Mommy! Mommy! I fell!’ And my mother would ask, ‘why did you fall?’ ‘Because I tripped.’ ‘Why did you trip?’And she goes, ‘your shoelaces.’ And we realized I fell because of my shoelaces. I’ll tie them then move on. I could’ve said, ‘Mom why are you bringing shoelaces into this conversation? Why are you blaming the shoelaces for something the sidewalk did to my knees? Who even says there’s a connection between anti-shoelaces and falling anyway? You’re violating my right to keep my shoelaces untied!’ I didn’t say that… I realized after falling, after falling a lot, that there was a connection between leaving my shoelaces untied and getting hurt.”
SO.. What’s the bottom line.. In Trevor Noah’s words..
“America needs to make it a lot harder for people who shouldn’t have guns, to get guns.”
What are your thoughts?
