If there is one bright spot in this Coronavirus pandemic (I know, it’s a stretch), it is that for a year, there were no mass shootings in the United States.
That streak ended three weeks ago in Atlanta. On Wednesday night, four people were murdered in a mass shooting in Orange County, California. This is the third week in a row in which innocent civilians have been killed.
Are we back to our previous Covid-19 normal? That at least every week or every other week, headlines state that more Americans have been killed due to unnecessary gun violence?
Logic would have said that after Jonesboro and Columbine 23 years go, those in the halls of power would have actually done something. Instead, they have been playing political ping pong while more lives are lost.
Seriously, what is it going to take to stop this nonsense once and for all?
