I'm Tired

[TRIGGER WARNING: MASS SHOOTING, DEATH, GUN VIOLENCE]

What more can I say about mass shootings in this country? We've had more mass shootings then we've had days in the year in 2015. I am not exaggerating. We're all desensitized to it. It's gotten to the point that it has to be extra horrific for anyone to take notice. You have to do it on camera or, in the case of the UCC shooting, you have to target Christians and kill over a dozen people.

Nothing changes. We try to get gun control laws passed but we can't because the NRA is too powerful. They keep loosening gun regulations and people keep dying, and nobody can do shit about it. Little has been done to improve mental health care in this country and it remains stigmatized, especially among men, who are, as I've said so many times, the ones committing the murders. Meanwhile people keep dying.

And we have the gall to act like we're better than any other country.

By the way, this guy whined about not having a girlfriend and though he appeared to identify as mixed race, had clear white supremacist attitudes. Same as always, nothing changes.
