STOP THE CAR.......

...I smell a whiff of caring , concern and intelligence.  On my way to work today, I heard on the radio that the Prime Minster of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern announced that the country will be adopting more strick and more stern gun control....and get this, all three political parties agree.....and only 3 days after the terrible tragedy that befell them last week. And the vote, that will pass I hear,  will come 10 days after the shooting.  Mind you, not months or years and years later like in the good old US.  Our government politicians are either to scared to fight back or speak up , dont care, or are being bought and paid for by the NRA. Instead of saving more lives, they rather play greedy and get more money. Wake up you bunch of bastards and look to New Zealand for how it's done. Condolences to New Zealand and showing what is really impotant.....human lives....and working together. Bravo!!!!!

  1. Agreed absolutely. This is the way to do it. In the U.S.A. the response to calls for more (or just some!) gun control after any such tragedy/outrage is always "This is not the right time to discuss it" meaning that the feelings of those grieving relatives should be 'respected'. Trouble is, as we all know only too well, the 'right' time just NEVER ever comes. Hats off and loud cheers for Ms Ardern, as well as those who let it pass so swiftly!

  3. Civilized countries don't have the NRA pulling the strings. Makes a butt load of difference.

  4. the NRA said today, "well, if the mosque had armed guards...". THAT'S NOT THE POINT, ASSHOLES! a house of worship should NOT have armed guards to begin with!

  5. She also promised to pay towards the 51 funerals and wore the hijab as a mark of respect. That's leadership for you. Not like Mrs may.......

  6. Yes, when I too heard that today I was almost teary eyed from how happy I was that they are moving so swiftly. The country is getting too ridiculous. Some days William and I seriously comptemplat leaving.

  8. Agreed! If only we had a cross party agreement on knifes. That’s the problem over here.

  9. Still waiting on the “gun law” her in the States that would actually prevent these type of things from happening. I won't hold my breath.

  10. Wait ... no "thoughts and prayers"?
    No, "this is not the right time"???

  11. Competent governments control the guns. We obviously don't have a competent government here.

  12. Nice! Something American politicians are to weak to do. This country is more greedy, corrupt, bigoted and pussy whipped beyond belief. I second your Bravo!!!! No wonder this country is a laughing stock.

    After 20 years since columbine, at least 85 school shootings, 223 dead (that's not counting injuries or other mass shootings like aurora, Orlando night club, and las vegas), and U.S. congress has not passed any gun restrictions without loop holes.
    40,000 Americans die / year from gun violence.

  15. That's because the NRA hasn't bought all the NZ politicians.

  16. New Zealand is doing what any rational, civilized country would do: attack the root of the evil. The NRA is the PR machine of the gun lobby. Nothing more, nothing less. They feed the fear and racism of America.

  17. In Illinois a facility can designate themselves a gun free zone. They then display a sticker of a gun with a slash through it on their entrance. My former church didn’t display that so I asked the pastor why not. They didn’t want to offend anyone 😐. Yeah FORMER church. I do religion my way now. I know the type of person I want to be and live my values.

  18. Amazing, isn't it? Makes one want to relocate! We passed strict background checks two years ago and the Republicans - even the sheriffs in some of our counties are ****still**** refusing to implement the law. What do these people have to hide that they don't want background checks for the safety of the population?

    1. And if they aren't implementing the law, and they aren't being held responsible that's an issue too. They should be shuttered and revoked their license to sell and carry.

  19. Rational people need to get as organized as the NRA. An NRA scaremongering advertisement popped up on my YouTube feed recently, I don’t see that level of communication from rational people.

  20. What a post to make sense. Thank you. We are still in shock. Since leaving the US years ago, it was always been a highly peaceful country here. But luckily...it's nice we have a government who takes action and doesn't play around...and respects human life.
