Six Shooters

 They should forever after be denominated the "Six Shooters".

They have swiss cheesed the Constitution, the division between church and state bloodied at the 50 yard line, the protections afforded women to control their own body and destiny now left staggered and with a gaping hole, the limits of the Second Amendment eviscerated as gun slingers roam the streets without challenge while threatening the nation's safety, the air we breathe now given free rein to choke the very life out of us. 

It has been a busy week for these six who have managed in one horrifying session to dismantle and disfigure our most fundamental understandings. And the worst is that the worst is yet to come, as this weapon of mass destruction will be menacing us for the indefinite future. In their recent declarations they have given clear evidence they intend to demonstrate their full power to destroy our most cherished rights. Who and what we are being defined at the wrong end of their collective gun.

Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang. Democracy, as we would seek to define it, in serious danger of imminent demise.
