US students will be able to shield themselves during school shootings with the latest in body armour, the Bodyguard Blanket
http://goo.gl/WwvECT
Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.



Let me tell you guys a story. In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business. 35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms. 
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG. In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings. 
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.

in 1987 a lone gunman killed 16 people, wounded 15 and then committed suicide. within six months the uk government passed an amendment to the firearms act effectively outlawing all high calibre, high frequency, high capacity rifles and shotguns.
in 1996 another lone gunman killed 16 children and their teacher, and then committed suicide. again within six months the uk government outlawed all handguns. special dispensation had to be issued in order to hold shooting competition as part of the 2012 olympic games, and british hopefuls had to train overseas.
you can legally own certain types of shotgun, .22 calibre rifles over a certain barrel length, and antiques. that’s it.
in the nigh-on twenty years since the uk has had one mass shooting. one. and we’re down to about 30 gun-related deaths annually.
there is not one example of gun control laws reducing mass shootings and gun-related homicide. there are dozens. it literally works every time. the usa is the anomaly not because it didn’t work but because it hasn’t tried.

wow, this is like the gun violence version of rape prevention

Happy National Coming Out Day!

heatherannehogan:

I want to thank y’all so much for sending me your coming out stories for National Coming Out Day. I have cried like a baby and laughed like a hyena reading all of them. I’m working on a giant master post right now, but in the meantime, here is my own coming out story. 

I realized I was gay when I was eight years old. I didn’t know what it meant to be gay. I didn’t even know the word “gay.” I was sitting at my desk wearing red and black Pro-Wing high-tops, a pair of cut-off jeans, and a Bart Simpson t-shirt I’d stolen from the lost and found at my church. I’d just failed a spelling test, I hadn’t finished my science project, I didn’t have any lunch money, and A.J. Smith signed his name with a heart on the cast on my arm.

Everyone said, “Oooooh, he looooves you.” And I knew instantly and as sure as a slap to the face that there was something wrong with me. Something different. Something weird. A.J. told everyone to shut up. He ran out to the playground. And I sat at my desk making promises to myself that whatever it was I’d just realized, whatever thing was broken inside me, whatever awfulness was worse than wearing sneakers from Payless and having to steal clean clothes, I would never, ever, ever let anyone figure it out.

So Callie wants a baby but sees they hardly have time. Than she accuses Arizona of not wanting a baby, because Arizona took an opportunity to further her carreer. But at the same time she does take on a new project in her carreer. How on earth can anyonre conclude from that that…
