It’s the biggest one to date…as long as we don’t count the white supremacist marauders who, many years ago, killed three times as many blacks.
Odd how those particular mass murders are mysteriously lost to history…sort of like how all of the unarmed black people who are gunned down by the police aren’t supposed to matter.
Will anything change? No, not likely.
And we all know it.
Many, many more will die in seemingly random, meaningless mass-shootings, some of which have become so common that they no longer warrant airing on the national news.
Nothing will change as long as nobodies keep getting killed.
Dumb-fuck conservatives will still scream in the defense of their guns. “It’s our Second Amendment right!” they’ll say. The Second Amendment is actually talking about arming “well regulated” state militias, but let’s not let facts get in the way.
It’s bad for sales.
In the USA, there is absolutely nothing to stop a mass shooting from happening tomorrow, or the day after that, or every day after.
And unless you’re rich, powerful, and well-connected, nothing will ever be done about it.
Nothing will be done until the rich, the powerful, and the well-connected start dying in a series of seemingly random, meaningless mass-shootings.
But that’s a little too much to hope for.
