Nothing can explain away the tragedy that happened last night in Las Vegas. A terrorist act by a cowardly American white male terrorist. And nothing SHOULD explain it away. It’s inexcusable in every way.
A wise person recently told me that “POTUS is not the problem. He is a symptom of the problem.” I believe they make a valid point that we have major issues that have been building for years. And we need to STOP IT.
Now is a time to support the families.
But very shortly, we need to have some serious dialog …. and the burden of finding the right balance of legislation falls 100% on the gun lobby itself.
On a positive note, this is how I think of Las Vegas. Still.
PS: There are no links in this post because there are much smarter people than me working together with the victims right now and I have no desire to distract.
