Oh my God. Just saw the news about the shooting in Oregon. So awful. So awful. So awful.
I'm now waiting for NRA's inevitable announcement that the problem is that we don't have enough guns. Demonstrably false, of course. But NRA knows that gun enthusiasts don't care about facts, because they believe they're in the right -- and facts don't trump belief. (You see this in everything from vaccines to climate change -- the belief that facts can change minds is the information-deficit model, and it doesn't work very well.)
Next, someone will talk about how we shouldn't "politicize" a mass shooting. Even though gun laws are legislated, ergo political.
It's like reading a script where you know what's going to happen next. And nothing will change, because too many politicians are cowards, and not enough people have made gun control a deciding issue in how they cast their votes.
