Guns and hate
Basically, we did nothing after the Columbine shooting in 1999. We did nothing after the attempted assassination of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in 2011. We did nothing after the Aurora, Colo., shooting in 2012, and we did absolutely nothing after the brutalization of the adults and children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut later that year.
What we Americans do “best,” apparently, in resolving disagreements, arguments or different points of view is to resort to violence.
So why should we think anything will get done now that nine people were killed in South Carolina on Wednesday?
