- From New York, New York to Circus Circus,
the recent events in Las Vegas have shaken our nation
to its very core.
As we struggle to find a reason why
any one individual would set out
with the intent of killing so many,
it's important we not rush to simply
blame his weapon of choice.
But for those looking to politicize this tragedy
by pointing fingers,
here's a list of groups and individuals
with as much or perhaps even more blood on their hands
than the NRA.
The hotel security for letting someone with that many guns
get past that many people.
Faulty window manufacturers.
It's 2017 and yet you can still
break a window with a hammer?
Vague do not disturb signs.
Large suitcases, small suitcases.
Cars with too much trunk space.
His dead bank robber dad.
Gotta be something there, right?
Violent movies and games.
People having fun.
And many more.
And while most of the victims
were primarily harmed by bullets,
blaming guns is a slippery slope.
Guns don't kill people.
And then to a much lesser extent, the bullets.
But if we start banning guns
because they can be improperly used to kill people,
then what next?
Razor blades, lightsabers?
And what about Skittles?
Mixed martial arts?
The number 32?
The Blue Man Group?
Falling down the stairs?
This is America.
People should be allowed to fall down the stairs.
So in times like these,
we need to be extra careful
in where we are placing our blame
and recognize that if we are all to blame,
then, well, none of us are to blame.
We are the National Rifle Association of America
and we did not do this.
