On Saturday, Aug. 31, a gunman committed another mass shooting in West Texas. We all have failed these seven people who lost their lives, and we all have failed all the victims of mass shootings before them. If our government and people truly cared at all about the problem, this could have been prevented.
Over the past decade, America has been shaken by a series of vicious and cowardly shootings, resulting in the slaughter of innocent human life. In addition to the recurrence of gutless, deranged lunatics murdering innocent Americans, a commonality that unites our most recent tragedies is the utilization of semi-automatic firearms to inflict needless slaughter.
