Another Day in America, Another Mass Shooting


At this rate, I'm assuming every American will eventually, at some point, know someone who's either been injured or killed by a gun.

So, what can we do? Seriously, I'd like to know what each and every one of us can actively do.

Because a hope-for-the-best status update won't fix it.

Tweeting out thoughts and prayers for the victims' families of the 355th mass shooting OF THE YEAR won't fix it.

Carelessly blaming a faulty system won't fix it.

So I ask again: besides feeling like shit and feeling helpless for a few minutes before resuming our everyday lives (and holiday shopping), what can we do? Wait until each and every one of us becomes a "friend or family member of a victim" to warrant a nationwide rallying cry? What can we do to prevent this sickening "new normal"?

I'd like to know.

That said, Igor Volsky, take it away:
