• "Repeat (Thoughts & Prayers)" - Petravita ft. DAKthe

    105 views 5 months ago
    Several times each year, one of the hundreds (or thousands) of multi-death shootings in the US catches our collective media attention for a few days. After an ever-shortening period of grief, half-hearted debate, and the same worn-out talking points, we settle back into our reality as the only first-world country in the world where children being shot up in their classrooms by legal gun owners is a realistic worry.

    We somehow fancy ourselves unique in our ability to hand out killing machines without it possibly having awful consequences, with enough of our country failing to see why other comparative nations don't have the same problems.

    The solutions aren't easy, and they aren't single-faceted, but if you don't think that the ease of firearm acquisition in the USA plays a role, well, then you're a fucking idiot.

    "Enough is enough," we say, and then we repeat.

    *Note: The choice to cut out the name of the shooter in the sampled news clips use in this song were intentional, I've frequently said I don't believe in giving perpetrators of these crimes a moment of attention after the fact, and I stand by that.
