Twitter can be kind of hard to handle during a disaster like today's Sandy Hook elementary school massacre, but I like these tweets about all of the various deadly objects and entities we've gotten rid of, from Big Gulps to the KKK, because they're literally killing us.
Here are some good ones:
we can outlaw Big Gulps but not guns. This is about public health: 31,000 gun-related deaths last year.— Thomas Goetz (@tgoetz) December 14, 2012
Other things that seemed impossible to change: slavery, child labor, suffrage... #newtown— Clara Jeffery (@ClaraJeffery) December 14, 2012
If we can require proscriptions for cold medicine to fight meth, you'd think we could make it harder to buy a gun and massacre children— Max Berger (@maxberger) December 14, 2012
We bankrupted the KKK, we can do it to the gun nuts as well— Jessica Pieklo (@Hegemommy) December 14, 2012
