I forecast many more mass shootings across the US. In fact I also predict by arithmetic principals there will be simultaneous mass shootings happening in a same day peroid. I feel we’ve only just begun. I see a sharp increase in suicides as well. Toddlers both as a victim and perp.
There have been millions of weapons sold in the past 10 years added to the existing stock. These weapons, originally purchased to fight a tyrannical government led by Obama, Eric Holder, and other “leftists”. Weapons to “fight the ZOG”. This delusional threat is no longer forefront with the Alt Right victory of 2016. These weapons haven’t gone away tho. Guns can remain operational for decades. The stockpiled ammunition across America will remain functional too. Throughout the next 30 years or so these guns will be sold traded or stolen and whose hands they will end up in is anyone guess. Some guns will be available by household members and used for other nefarious deeds apart from their original intent. Those weapons bought only as a symbol of patriotism will infact be used to murder those in the immediate circle whom they meant to protect. The killing is just begun.
Without losing sight of the reality of tragedy and personal loss, it is remarkable how distortion of reality seems to be hard wired into human nature, whether from news media distortion to social media amplification of the worse. Is it simply inevitable we tend to be like Trump, who says “I know those are the facts, but I don’t believe them!”? As with the 80s and 90s, perception continues to trump reality. And while statistics like these are incomplete, they are as close to the truth as we can get, and truer than the monsters we create in our own minds. Unless we truly want perception to replace reality.
Yes a good read, and taking it further there’d be no chance that at least some sections of the media might be even more perniciously complicit in that they might be seeking to encourage such events for their own political and/or economic reasons would there?
The NYT, a reliable indicator? Sorry.
This has been a pleasure to read. Thank you for not only understanding the truth about the aftermath of school shootings but expressing those truths in a manner that most journalist today will not..
