The Predicament of Gun Culture

0923B3-1024x538.jpg

What happened in Texas church shooting was tragic and heart-breaking! We need to stop the silence treatment about American gun culture–and I bet that National Rifle Association (NRA) would say, “It is perfectly legal to kill people” as they did not give a shit about several school shootings and South Carolina church killing, the list is countless. Just mind-boggling!

It is truly tragic. Supposedly, if the shooter who killed the latest number of people, 27 so far–was the shooter white? If the shooter is indeed white, then we really need to talk more about it and politicize more often about it. Enough of white supremacy.

If we refuse to talk more about it, then it is unethical, irresponsible, and oppressive society that continues to silence innocent people. It contains information and concrete tools for ongoing language and culture bigotry, hegemony, and oppression even in Deaf community. It also provides assistance for white supremacy against Deaf people. Yes, there are several White Deaf people who are very much supporter of guns and Trump’s America. Oh yes, plenty of white supremacy in Deaf community.

What happened behind the shooting: the deterioration of American culture and the growing sentiment across the nation aggressive and often dishonest tactics, the American gun culture are blocking resistance on American lands–why are we experiencing a lot of apprehension from gun violence problem? The worst thing was that these people who were in a church–supposedly the epicenter of thoughts and they were killed by guns. What is that?

My deepest thoughts are with those affected by today’s terrible events in Texas.
