This Week in Gundamentalism


Just how bad is the culture of gun violence in the United State? One need look no further than the muted news coverage about the execution style murder of eight people in Ohio this week for an answer. We’ve become so numbed, so deadened to the damage done by the gundamentalist lobby that even the killing of eight people isn’t at the top of the front page of every news site. Just another day of carnage is just that in a country whose politicians are so afraid of the NRA that even the most reasonable restrictions cannot be tolerated.

And so the national tragedy continues.
