Famed “Jack and Diane” singer John Mellencamp reacted to the Kansas City Chiefs parade shooting by calling for more gun control and urging news outlets to “be brave enough” to publish photos of slain children.


Mellencamp used a post to X to say: “Excuse me for stating the obvious truth. I do so out of love for this country and the pain of learning, once again, that children have been killed by gun violence. If we as a country want to find the collective will within ourselves to change our gun laws, let’s stop playing silly political games.”


He then pressed for the crime scene photos of slain children and others: “Show the American people the dead children and others who have been struck down. Show us what guns and bullets can do to the human body.”

 
Superficial at best and remarkably disingenuous at worst. I'm sure he's only wanting to see young white kids shot and not the overwhelming number of black and brown kids that get shot up on Democrat plantations he advocates for.
 
Just shut up and sing. On second thought, just have a cup of STFU.

I honestly thought he died like 10 years ago. Too bad he’s a nut. I like his hits from the 80’s.
 
He needs to put up or shut up!
Go visit the areas where the street thugs have taken over.
Then come tell us with your own money, how you are going to fix the senseless shootings.
Murder is illegal. No new laws are going to make it more illegal..

You can't fix lazy people willing to commit violent acts instead of getting a real job.
They take the easy way out and make everyone else pay the price.

As far as schools shootings. If we had the same laws of threatening a politician or the President as we did our schools there would be significantly less of them.
Never mind we protect our state houses and courts better than our children!

People are numb to images on the screen.

That's the thing I don't even have an issue with putting up pictures of corpses but it needs to be consistent and you need to see all the bodies including the ones accumulated from terrorists and scumbags shooting other scumbags.

The other reason they'll never do it is because at least in the case of war, the jingocons/MIC don't want the public to realize how stupid war is and how retarded the loss of life is over what is usually 95% of the time meaningless crap.

I believe he is barking up the wrong tree. Instead those two juvies should be prosecuted like grownups and given the 20-30 year without parole sentence- all inside 30 days or so. If they were over 21 give them the death sentence via a firing squad.- executed within 30 days while the memory of the event is still fresh in people's minds- this will create a proper "fcuk around- find out" mentality which our newer generations know nothing about. Now -that- process needs to be televised in its entirety. What is the over/ under that all the gangbanger behavior and thug life aura will fade away in a hurry? Just asking for a friend...

Too rough? Too bad. So is shooting 20 people indiscriminately. Until the government responds at least in a symmetrical fashion to serious crime- nothing will change.

Oh and I hope john took the proper steps to help his violent son
His old friends into child porn ( band member)
Many years back, in Playboy I think it was, John was interviewed who was explaining how they would go out, get shitfaced and pound the crap out of someone. IIRC his father was in on the stunt as well.
Explains his violent son I’d say.
