About three weeks ago, 12 Jews were slaughtered by a rabid anti-Semite in Pittsburgh. Last week, 12 young people just out for fun in California were slaughtered by a former Marine who went on a wild shooting spree.
In both cases, the shooters obviously were insane.
What we need to ask ourselves is how much longer we can allow a situation to exist where so many innocents are being slaughtered so often all across this great nation.
These savage acts are an embarrassment to our nation, a danger to our children and to every age, and a horrible reminder of just how violent our society can be.
We are not exactly certain how to stop the carnage but something must be done.
Doing something is not a crime. Doing nothing is the crime.
