Offspring sent out to cry, living mandatory suicide: The GOP & the NRA world is a real-life Slayer album

The GOP & NRA have decided we should live in a world where guns have more protections than children & they want you to be ignorant about the effects. That’s a nightmare scenario. Quite literally, the party of family values is making us live out Slayer songs. Singer Tom Araya said, “Regardless of whatever f***ing religion … More Offspring sent out to cry, living mandatory suicide: The GOP & the NRA world is a real-life Slayer album

Irma and Harvey came at two and a half minutes to midnight.
