I don't expect any real answers about why yet another mass shooting has happened [View all]

Even with an argument about legal gun ownership apart from figuring out why this happened, if we Americans are true to form, the national conversation will be pretty light on context and real solutions.

It's not just about the prevalence of guns in our society, it's the mindset that's out there that these shooters use to justify their actions.

The problem is that there are too many people who are threatened by the prospect of their livelihoods coming under any real scrutiny in order to allow a real conversation about the causes and solutions.

It's like a never ending vicious circle.
