This comment from Balloon Juice just nails it.
One other thing, I’ve noticed with many of these mass shootings a certain victim-blaming going on. “If they had had guns…” “If they had had the will to act…” It’s sickening.
Yes, it is. Because goodness knows, we can't pass common-sense regulation to restrict high-capacity magazines, ban assault weapons, require background checks on all purchases, or in any other way take guns away from the shooter.
