It seems that America was so swept up in debating what constitutes raping a woman over the last few days that we forgot to have our weekly mass shooting. Fingers crossed, this may break the summer streak where they became almost weekly occurrences.
The NRA, an industry front group that pretends it represents citizen gun owners, has a policy of never commenting on rampages carried out with the assault weapons and extended magazines they lobbied to make legal. Conservatives are always concerned that it’s inappropriate to discuss gun control in the wake of a massacre. We should all just shake our heads and say what a shame. As mass shootings become more commonplace, it follows that we should discuss what to do about it even less. You know, out of respect for the victims.
