“When will it end?!”
IDK, ya’ll. 60 people died in Vegas a couple years ago. Sadly, our history tells us that 20 deaths in El Paso isn’t a large enough catalystic event to lead to change. America is well within the midst of the insanity routine. I believe we will self destruct before we get better. I think in this country, we’re collectively waiting on someone else to get the job done. We’re waiting on some big shoe to drop that will lead to an undoing of everything that’s been happening in these past few years. We’re in a sad sad cycle and we need to get uncomfortable.
We're not going to get uncomfortable. Baltimore, Chicago, L.A, border gang wars, these places and things have been going on for years and nobody cares and people get used to it. How many people have been killed by drive bys and shootouts in neighborhoods? How many of those incidents got people to change? There is no change and people make money off of it, reporting on it, doing entertainment based on it. There are people who even celebrate it.
Mass shooters won't change that, because like the former I listed people will get used to it. It wouldn't even shock me if there isn't people who are contemplating as we speak turning these shootings into something they can make money off of.
Ever since Columbine these shootings have become more popular and not with just disgruntled white teenage boys, we've seen people from all colors and walks of life doing it. We just had not to recently, what a gay guy and a trans person trying to do their own Columbine before they were stopped.
Before Columbine this sorta stuff wasn't really a thing and back then you could still buy all the guns you wanted, so it wasn't that. Something within the mindset of America itself changed. Other countries with gun availability like ours don't have the same issues as America does. The biggest reason why this will never change is because the problem is us, nobody wants to think the problem is them so it must be some outside source. It isn't. So things will never change.
