More Random Gun Violence, No Lessons Learned
Not to diminish the dead and injured, but as mass shootings go, this one was sort of ho-hum. Not a big enough body count -- not mass-enough to get mass attention.
We'll probably hear about the dangers of playing video games, and untreated mental illness, and insufficient event security. All deflection, all BS! What we won't hear anything about is the real problem -- way too many goddam guns in this country and way too easy to get them.
There are roughly 325 million Americans with 393 million guns in their possession. Good grief, why? It seems as if Congress is waiting until each and every one of us loses a family member to gun violence before they take any action. Maybe not even then.
