My column on Americans and the day they died

Worth re-posting on a day like today. Here.

    further to your point. cable news will be going ballistic for the next 2 or 3 days over a congressman being wounded. meanwhile, in Chicago, between 5 and 10 people will be shot and or killed today but that is no longer newsworthy. good article and I laud you for still writing them but the feather on the scale blew off long ago. I don’t think we are going to make it.

    Nothing will ever change here and I will confess that they’ve become so commonplace that I don’t even recall half of these incidents: http://timelines.latimes.com/deadliest-shooting-rampages/

    There’s also no point praying for the victims of the most recent attack in the absence of political will to at least try to reduce their frequency, either.

    Column bang are ..if you can argue guns are good after that murderous rampage and no changes are required to American gun laws..I have no response and nothing will convince you otherwise…

      meanwhile, Megyn Kelly is normalizing Alex Jones who claims the Sandy Hook shootings were faked. It’s the movie Network come to life.

    It’s not hard to understand why some people have come to the opinion that “the only good Republican is a dead one”. Will the GOP get serious about gun control now? Probably not but it’s worth hoping. Republicans fired on by a left leaning shooter, usually it’s the other way around, as in the case of Representative Gifford, this is a man bites dog situation, very rare.

    Not meaning to violate any copyright laws, but the New Yorker has an awesome story about another shooting (the one in Orlando) that deserves a read:

    Shows there is heart in the US still. Too bad it takes an obscenity like a mass shooting to bring that out.
