What Explains U.S. Mass Shootings? International Comparisons Suggest an Answer

This article confirms the obvious truth: more guns means more gun violence. Millions of Americans are being sacrificed so that the gun lobby can make ever greater profits. The fact that nothing is done when hundreds of the innocent are slaughtered is all the proof you need. If the mass shooter is a “jihadi” there is instant outrage and demands we retaliate. Can you imagine if the shooter in Las Vegas had the name Muhammad? We know there would talk of war and spending billions. But because the shooters are usually white there is nothing. And both parties are to blame. There is only lipservice. The media is also a big part of the problem. Every mass shooting, no matter how devastating, is forgotten after 2 or 3 days. But the ultimate blame goes not to the NRA but the politicians that take money to remain silent. It’s up to us to demand it be done. The next victim of gun violence could be you or your loved one.
