Uvalde school massacre: Anonymous post goes viral for 'extreme common sense'
The anonymous post that went viral on FB

A social media post attributed to no one has gone viral after it called for prospective gun owners to be treated like women who try to get an abortion.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott revealed how 18-year-old Salvador Ramos opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde on Tuesday afternoon, May 24, killing 19 students and two adults, and injuring several others. The gunman allegedly shot his own grandmother to death before heading to the school. Many have called it the deadliest shooting at a US grade school since the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012.

Following the massacre, an anonymous post went viral on social media after it suggested that those looking to buy guns should face the same hurdles as an embattled woman looking to get an abortion. “How about we treat every young man who wants to buy a gun like every woman who wants to get an abortion — mandatory 48-hour waiting period, parental permission, a note from his doctor proving he understands what he’s about to do, a video he has to watch about the effects of gun violence, an ultrasound wand up the ass (just because)," the post read.

“Let’s close down all but one gun shop in every state and make him travel hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun," it continued. "Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun.”

"It makes more sense to do this with young men and guns than women and healthcare, right? I mean no woman getting an abortion has killed a room full of people in seconds, right?" the post added.



The post resonated with gun control advocates on social media, who nodded in agreement.

"This. Is. So. On. Point," one tweeted.

"This makes a lot of sense," another wrote.

"This text is genius #gunabortion," a comment read.

"If there is no gun in the room, no one gets shot. If there is a gun in the room, someone will get shot. It is very simple. What needs to be done will never be done. This is who America is, we allowed this to be," someone else chimed in.

"Well, we can't do that in a patriarchy. I'm 100% serious. If y'all really want to start fixing our country we have to dismantle the patriarchy," another offered.







However, there were many who disagreed.

"Yeah let's treat them the same. Women are not allowed in school zones, need a license to carry in most states, be 18 to have one, sometimes 21, and be taxed on it. Don't be stupid with this false dichotomy," one fumed.

"Pretty sure it's harder to get a gun legally than it is to get an abortion," another wrote.

"A half a million American children are aborted annually, so it's not even close. More vehicles kill Americans than guns, yet I see people putting other drivers' lives at risk every day with their carelessness," someone else argued.

"We more than anything need proper mental health already!!! This is the root cause, regardless of the weapon, lives will continue to be lost!!!" another insisted.
