I woke up this morning to find that, yesterday, there was the largest mass shooting in American history, claiming the lives of 50 people and wounding another 53. It is tragic. It is all the more tragic because it is unsurprising.
There is very little to say anymore when these things happen in the US. Mass shootings happen every day there, and more than one per day happened in 2015. This one happened on a much larger scale than usual, and it is for that reason that it is in the news. But what can those of us who watch this chaos from the outside really say about it? Guys, your gun laws are insane? How can you allow people to legally buy an AR-15 assault rifle and not expect this to happen? It has been said, over and over and over again, and I know that those of you who live in the US are more aware of it than anyone else. I’m not going to rant and rave on about gun control, as there is very little point. I will link to a site saying what you can do to help, in particular you can donate blood, if you live in the Orlando area.
