Sic transit gloria mundi…

or: What THE FUCK is wrong with you, America?

If you’re wondering what I’m going off about this early in the morning, read this article on the BBC website.

The website advertisement for the offer, which continues until the end of the month, mentions that an approved background check on gun ownership is required.

May I just point out that this is complete bullshit? I’m dealing with criminal background checks almost every day and it appalls me how it’s harder to rent an apartment with a bad record than obtain a fucking gun.

Tell me again how this is supposed to make me feel any safer knowing that there might be some paranoid, but of course well-meaning U.S. citizen randomly going wild, not to mention the fact how easy it is to get a concealed carrier’s permit?

Saying that there’s something fundamentally wrong with America’s attitude towards guns is the understatement of the year. I’m starting to lose every last bit of tolerance for those who whine about school massacres and their likes only to later take up their guns to go hunting or just fire guns for the fun of it. Seriously, there’s something wrong with this attitude.
