Charlottesville, Harvey, Irma, Maria, North Korea, NFL, Las Vegas: How many more things have to happen before we can unite as a country?
And yet, we seem further from intelligent discourse than ever. All you have to do is look at the most recent incident in this two month news cycle nightmare.
Talking about possible, reasonable gun control measures should not be verboten in the wake of what happened in Las Vegas. It's an intelligent, next step outcome that recognizes the tragedy of a madman's actions and access to an arsenal.
Or, to put it in more heartbreaking terms, all you have to do is read this post I copied from a young friend:
"I've lived through through three different events all with the same headline, 'Deadliest Shooting in American History.' I'm 16 years old."
