Figuring out “why” we would want to murder a playground full of children is far more important in my opinion than “how” it was done.
I am in agreement on these points, the powers that be do little more then puke loads of empty words…

Thank you for your thoughtful reply. It is so refreshing nowadays to read a dissenting reply issued without rancor.

I go back and forth myself about gun control because like you I see how deeply guns are embedded in our culture and our definition of ourselves. So yes, why someone would want to do such a terrible thing, “that is the question.” Such individuals are obviously deeply damaged, more especially those who then turn the weapon on themselves. Where do they come from? Are they not extreme versions of ourselves? Who among us, when hurting and angry, has not fantasized a violent act? So many questions, so few answers.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
