At the end of last week the world ended a little bit in Newtown and according to the Mayan the rest of us would follow on the 21st of December. I’m glad to say we made it through unlike those poor kids in Sandy Hook. The NRA’s answer? Blame video games and movies, give more people guns and post armed guards in all school. Labelling them mentally ill would be an insult to those with a true mental illness.
