At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.  

… It is in our power to do something about it. I say that recognizing the politics in this town foreclose a lot of the avenues right now. But it would be wrong for us not to acknowledge it. And at some point it’s going to be important for the American people to come to grips with it.


During his 19th press conference following a mass gun murder, PRESIDENT OBAMA.

Newtown… Arizona… Colorado… Charleston.

Wake the fuck up, Washington D.C.

Wake the fuck up, America.


57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear has been identified as the man who opened fire at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood yesterday, killing 3 and injuring 9. Among the injured are 5 police officers, and among the dead is 44-year-old UCCS police officer, Garrett Swasey and two civilians. No clear motive for the attack has been released, but according to unnamed law enforcement sources, Dear said ‘no more baby parts’ in reference to Planned Parenthood’s abortion services, which has become a hot button issue in the Republican Party, which is trying to defund the organization. The shooter also mentioned President Obama, but it is unclear in what context. According to former associates of Robert, he was very Anti-Obama, having said many times that the president should be impeached. Lewis was taken into custody uninjured after an hours-long standoff and will have his first court appearance on Monday via CCTV.

President Obama spoke about the tragedy, calling for Americans do 'do something’ about the plague of gun violence in this country. In a statement, he said “We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”

Planned Parenthood locations around the country are reportedly stepping up security, including in New York where the governor ordered extra police presence at clinics across the state. No specific threats or plots have been discovered at this time.
