Woke up this morning to another shooting, this time in Roanoke, Virginia.  All of it caught live on camera and documented by the gunman himself on social media.

I check my social media feed. I am bombarded with dozens of photos like this:

This piece documents the cost of gun violence in America.

This is where Gun Control advocates like me say we need to do something about our fascination—our obsession—with guns, and write pieces like this:

Let’s Talk About Guns

Let’s Talk About Guns … Again

This is where the Gun Lobby people quote the 2nd Amendment and say Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

This is where nothing happens.
