Not Shocking

“Shocking” is the word that kept coming up yesterday after the Las Vegas massacre. Come on! It is not. It is just a different venue. A college campus. An elementary school. A cafeteria. A post office. A movie theater. A country western music concert. It is just a different venue.

It is just a matter of time before the next mass shooting. Just a matter of time. Moments of silence and sending our thoughts and prayers isn’t cutting it.

A silencer’s only purpose is to keep a weapon’s use surreptitious.

Don’t argue with me, please.

That’s all I have to say.
