In no particular order or location or time, except they are all mass killings, seven of hundreds in the past few years. Common denominators? Assault weapons. Look at the hundreds of other. They are spread across the country, in different venues, different times of day, different killers. They all had a weapon of war in the hands of a shooter.
"Show me a hero, and I will show you a tragedy." F Scott Fitzgerald. Another common denominator is that every mass killing had at least one hero: a mom, a security guard, a pastor, a teacher, someone. No more heroes, please. Let's get rid of weapons of war in the hands of the populace, and start eliminating the need for so many heroes. I would like to take all the guns, but am willing to compromise on these - because until we do, the next one happens while you read this.
