The Orlando Shooting

I don’t have much to say about the Orlando Shooting. We grieve over such events on a regular basis, but we lack the political will to do anything about the violence. Such shootings are not inevitable, and the vast majority could be prevented. On some level I feel that we as a nation are hypocritical in the way we grieve, grieve, and grieve again, but take no other action. It’s like mourning the preventable death of a child that we have long denied vital medical treatment to. What is there to say after we have failed to act for such a long time?
