Tagmass shooting

Heavy

The West Wing has me thinking about the death penalty.

The news has me thinking about how scary it is to be Black in Baton Rouge or Minnesota.

Did you know there was a group dedicated to tracking and filming crimes and uploading them to deter youth from violence?

Guns are everywhere and mass shootings are as routine as running out of milk.

The jobs are gone. Eaten by computers.

Happy Thursday.

Barely a day

Barely a day goes by without a mass shooting.

It’s terrifying. It’s exhausting. It’s a problem native to the United States. It’s a mentally unhealthy population that knows no way to express their feelings other than violence.

It’s a country where you can buy an AR-15 in 7 minutes. With that kind of speed, any impulse to murder can be acted on and carried out without any time to cool off and have your cooler head appeal to your better self.

Guns are accessible. That’s a fact that won’t quickly change. Most guns used in mass shootings are purchased legally. It’s so easy to buy them legally, why go through the extra trouble of illegal sales?

But why are so many people purchasing them and acting on their emotions in mass violence? What makes someone wake up and decide to shoot up a school, night club, movie theater or church?

I wish more of these shooters were captured alive so we could ask them.
