I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

What John Cole said

It occurred to me tonight that we live in a country where the Supreme Court has decided the 1st amendment does not give you the right to yell “fire” in a crowded movie theatre, but the 2nd Amendment gives you an unfettered right to amass enough guns to shoot 71 people in the same theatre.

I would just like not to have to hear the phrase "shocked and saddened" ever again. Because I think the saddest part for those of us fortunate enough to be safely on the sidelines is that no one is really shocked anymore. Another troubled young man with a gun -- how did mass murder become no longer unthinkable?
