but that鈥檚 what happened.聽
and the thing is
if thirty dead, white, upper middle-class kindergartners in Connecticut aren鈥檛 going to motivate change on gun control
then they鈥檙e never going to change for queer people in Florida, and they鈥檙e not going to change for music fans in sin city, and they鈥檙e not going to change for college students in Washington and Oregon, and they鈥檙e not going to change and they鈥檙e not going to change.聽
A white man can buy 19 automatic weapons and no one is going to raise an eyebrow. And then afterwards they鈥檒l send thoughts and prayers.聽

you wanna know what the really聽disgusting part is?
it wasn鈥檛 just that 30 kids were killed at Sandy Hook and they didn鈥檛 care enough to finally do something
it鈥檚 that 30 kids were killed at Sandy Hook, and instead of caring enough to finally do something, some actively dug their heads further in the sand and dismissed the entire thing as a fucking hoax
so yeah it鈥檚 not just that they鈥檙e doing nothing but sending meaningless聽鈥渢houghts and prayers鈥, there are people out there doing the equivalent of sticking their fingers in their ears and screaming NA NA NA NA NA I CAN鈥橳 HEAR YOU
