commented on The Past Year in Mass Shootings in the United States: A Timeline
@1 I agree and concur with your sentiments. I would like to suggest a comparison that helps me understand the sense of urgency: if you come across a person who is injured and bleeding profusely, the first priority is to stem the bleeding. Asking questions about how this person got there doesn't help stem the bleeding. The feeling of an epidemic of gun violence in this country can be viewed as a massive trauma that must be treated. Effective gun control would be an attempt to stem that bleeding, once the bleeding is curtailed and the victim is stable, then we can further benefit from seeking answers to the kind of questions you have posed.
